Is it just me, my eye problems, or is this guy talking really talking some sort of twilight zone encripted language?
"would you stand there YELLING in immigration"...is PEANUTS in our personal economies", "I wouldnt give a monkey mate." (???), and " why waste energy let that "eat into you"....??
Sounds like "hold that anger inside, let it eat at you until you develope an ulser.
Just my thoughts

Nope, sorry, I've read my posts twice now & have certainly not suggested anywhere I'd stand there YELLING in Immo. I'd like to think after years dealing with bureaucratic jobsworths that I don't lose my temper. Even more so in LOS because of the "face" nonsense.
Whether it's peanuts in our economy is irrelevant. There are prices for everything & like I said, I don't mind dropping tips when appropriate but to be charged treble is laughable but, hey, live & live, each to their own etc.
"Eat into me" is just a figure of speech, I'd wander over to NACC without a care in the world & bring the blatant extortion to their attention, then go back to continue the application & then go eat, maybe trying Vince's.
I've got a feeling in my water from previous visits to various official offices that just by taking the officers details would be enough to snap them to their senses before it got anywhere near a complaint
May the bridges I burn light the path in front of me

Liam, the Police visit to your home is only for the first application, no visits for renewals. I took my witness again this year, same guy i always take, no interviews for him after the first application, now he just signs in front of the imm officer and sits back down to watch TV..

Yarr.. so it seems.. no police call.. Cheers for that.. Cross wires Niggly.. I watched a dude doing his nuts verbally while we were there protesting SOMETHING.. with a bedraggled bar girl pal.. and others trying to translate.. no reflection on you fella.. didnt write it up well enough.. still say.. if they said 5k for an annual visa.. I wouldnt give a monkey.. better than going to Laos 4 times a year. 3.1k.. it is at least consistent for us.. and next year we may well give the village elder woman 500 baht to pootle along. Lessons learnt.. I could grizzle about my 100 baht change failure.. but better things to do!

Just back from Immigration. Took 1 hour. Although had letter from bank, bank book wasn't up to date. Wife went back to bank who called immigration and all was fixed. No tips asked for and very good service. So easy!!
Sorry might be wrong thread and not related to the 10 year visa.

Was that a marriage extension Jimmy? If so.. did you get asked for a witness that you were a real person.. or did visa only cost 1,900 baht? I'm hearing various criteria..

PS.. this thread as good as any.. :-)

Retirement requires 800,000 in bank or 65,000 monthly or combination of both to = 800,000
Marriage requires 400,000 in bank or 40,000 monthly no combination allowed.
If using monthly figures an Embassy letter is required.

Baht 800,000 in bank as this saves having to pay British Embassy in BKK to verify pension documents.
It's the easiest way.
