Re: Jobs for young Thai people

After 5 years of collage in Udon with all the associated expenses my step daughter went down to Bangkok earlier this year to be presented with her diploma in business management by a member of the royal family. That was the last 10K Baht of completely wasted money. Should have spent it setting her u...

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

Some of my older (>10 years) stamps say "Application of stay is Permitted" the later stamps are saying "Extension of stay Permitted" Been through 2 passports and have not seen a "Permission to Stay" on the stamp
I'm sure it means the same thing. This is all just pedantics!

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

@ pf-flyer My Thai wife of 46 years and I arrived by air in Thailand on 12 AUG 2012. Both of us went through immigration at the airport with a U.S. Passport with a Non-immigration O-A visa. Can I ask you if your TW still has a Thai Passport? If so why didn't she enter the Kingdom on that? Obviously,...

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

Sitting at Swampy airport typing this, having come through immigration without incident about an hour ago. IO got a bit of a panicked look when he saw the AO visa, and spoke to the guy in the adjacent booth. That guy saw my re-entry permit, and told him to stamp me in until late July 2020. Insuranc...

Re: Radio Stations?

I stream my favorite radio stations (world wide) to my phone and use Blue Tooth to connect to my car radio or home audio system.

Try the "Tune In" app on your phone - works for me. I also use:-

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

OPTION #1 would work for me right now! The OA visa was issued a >year ago and under the guidelines of that visa is still valid. As you say until mid 2020 be it with continued boarder runs. Get a 3 month O visa then and extend it to Retirement status. Your are not applying for another OA visa through...

Get the balance back

Late last week I had a post removed from the "Pair of Balls thread", it may have been sarcastic but no way near derogatorily. What is this garbage (driven by a one eyed, racist, full of ----, American and his cronies) doing in the World News forum. He has his own forum why don't you, the administrat...

Re: A Sign of the Times? Udon Immigration 90 day report.

Maybe - just maybe, with the financial imposition a large percentage of expats find em selves in these days (x-Rates, new regulations etc.) miss "Dodgy Visa Udon" is finding all the Extension and 90 Day reporting crossing her desk and going all points South with suitably filled brown envelopes!
