reteirment visa

RL Traders post regarding having to wait 30 days (Two consecutive years ) for an extension on a
retirement visa confirms my suspicicion that this practice will be enforced infinitum and not just a
"One Off" event to weed out the Illegals

Opticion

Every major Hospital in Udon has an Eye Doctor and equipment to check your eye Health .The machine to
