Re: Border and bar closings

strange decision ?? https://www.pattayamail.com/news/pattaya-chonburi-resturants-can-open-under-strict-guidelines-293122 Totally. I can see this getting rescinded pretty quickly.

Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

Not sure if mentioned as there are about 20 threads on Carona but it appears the British company Dyson have answered a call from the PM Boris to help. They have dropped everything and designed a new ventilator in 10 days. In production now. They are donating quite a few. Well done to their tech dep...

Transport Offices and road tax payments

I read that driving license renewals have been suspended but does anyone know if they are still handling road tax payments? They may have also started cutting back on the 'satellite' offices like at AEK Udon so wondering if that's still open? I understand that tax can be paid at service desks at Big...

Re: Visa Extension

^ Don't forget the all-important anti-corruption hot-line to report extortion by government workers. In previous instances, applicants may have been reticent to do so out of fear of imperiling their right to stay and paid whatever was demanded.

Re: Visa Extension

Since the Consulate in Savannakhet stopped accepting Non-O visa applications without a 'health certificate' the morning I applied last week, I struck out on getting the 1-year multi-entry Non-O I needed to ride out the current sh!t storm. I returned getting another 30-day visa-exempt entry. As I am ...

Re: Smart TV's, internet bundles, etc..

Thanks for the advice and tips. I had forgotten about Netflix. The Polish guy I worked with in Myanmar swore by it, especially since he saved money on the subscription by signing up in the host nation rather than his home nation... or vice-versa. I think I read that they've closed off that loophole?...

Smart TV's, internet bundles, etc..

After the two power cuts yesterday and having to call Home Cable to reset something somewhere (they never came to the house), I find the channels are all over the shop. Last year, I read that a Smart TV is a bit of a wasted expense since there's not a lot of media smartness available in Thailand. So...
