Re: Sendiing Mail

Just received my proof of Life form from the UK today..
It was posted on the 3rd August .
That is nearly 2 months.

As usual Pensions people did not send it recorded delivery or Air Mail.

Have 16 weeks to reply so maybe ok.
I will send it back EMS and see how long that takes.

Re: What ! Visa amnesty extended till end of October

It looks like the amnesty will be granted until Oct 31st. But any foreigners who want to stay after that must submit an application to stay by October 3rd. It will mean there could still be large number of people at immigration offices this week. https://www.nationthailand.com/news/30395273?utm_sour...

Re: RIP Stephen John Richards AKA Foreign Office Steve

Just an update some friends of Steve visited his house today. There are some paperwork problems so his wife is hoping to hold the funeral next Saturday. She wants to have it on a Saturday as most of her family are Government workers. Also it will give her time and Steve's expat friends sort out the ...

Re: RIP Stephen John Richards AKA Foreign Office Steve

Just had a phone call.
The funeral has been postponed due to the paperwork with the British Consulate not being in order.
My apologies for any inconvenience but it appears that the British Embassy strikes again.
Do not know the details so will post further when more info is available.

Re: RIP Stephen John Richards AKA Foreign Office Steve

I have been trying to get the exact location of Steves house. I have been assured of these directions from someone who has been to his home today. You go onto the Sakhon Nakhon road (route 22) at the flyover next to Big C and the eastern ringroad, You drive for 6km and there is a PT LPG gas station....

Re: Leave That Money In the Bank - Update

I was specifically told to maintain 800,000 in my bank account for 3 months after my extension in Udon. I was also told it had to be maintained at 400,000 until 3 months before the extension was due then 800,000. This is probably due to the not nice person who is in charge of the front office. It i...

Re: New Extension after September 26th

Considering they strictly want long stay visitors, and I may be wrong, but the way it is worded there would be no re-entry permit needed because they don't want you to leave the country. Stay for 90 days, then can extend it for two more 90-day periods. I would assume if you left after the initial 9...

The basic supply infrastructure is already in place including the existing airport. Right now, any industrial estate is well served for transport access. If the high speed rail link manifests itself some time in the future, then that's a bonus. I agree. If you compare the Infrastructure in place no...

Re: Were to get NON FARMED FISH..

as far as I am aware there are NO species of marine/freshwater fish that cannot be "farmed" ..... Wolf fish are now being farmed in Norway.

AS FAR AS I AM AWARE.
Show the evidence that Wolf Fish are being farmed.
They live in deep cold waters of the Atlantic.
