Re: Time Requirement, Post Extension, for 800K in Bank

I know and understand this thread is based on first hand knowledge of the new 800K requirements for "O" Retirement extension but can we add my option? I'm due to extend again shortly:- For the passed 6 extensions (prior to that I was doing 800K thingy until the hoops tangled around my feet) I had be...

Re: Udon Flooding

. . . If they bothered to keep the drains clean , then i dont think Udon would flood at all. Nailed it. Instead of doing all of that housecleaning maintenance BEFORE rainy season, I saw the backhoes out in full force day before yesterday during a lull in the storms. In the mean time here in the ric...

Re: Beware of Lazada.

I wish everyone would stop shopping on line . Then i would not have to navigate around the homicidal monkeys that drive the delivery trucks .!!!!

Re: 90 Day Report Online

All very well until you cross the border and come back with a new TM6 card! Resets the sequence = start again. Do a direct report (or mail as I do) 90 days later and maybe - JUST maybe - you might be lucky enough to achieve this remarkable milestone AGAIN. For me = 3 times since it was introduced Ap...

Re: Rumor Check: Problems with income method in Udon for extension based on retirement

Have a friend who has decided to go down the 800K path. Been offered 1.85% interest on a term deposit THEN OUT COME THE HOOPS!!! His bank insists on a list of requirements including a fully notorised Thai translation of his passport by the Aust Embassy (I doubt they can do that?). I'm thinking this ...

I've been saying for years this is the the end goal.

They're not interested in what they can't see or hold in their hands.

They're only happy when they see 800k in a Thai bank.

Re: Bad Experience at Udon Thani Hospital

Why not just pay a few Baht and goto the Thai Military hospital, if you can't afford AEK - BKK Hospital or the like? Had two very good experiences at the Military Hospital, one for TW's Aunty and one for myself!

Re: Road crash survey

I bought DMax in 2002, drove hire cars prior to that. About 2007, had a kid on a souped up Honda wave come across my front lawn (out of control) and kit the drivers door as I was entering my car port. His father paid for the damage. Tee boned a samlor about 2015 - 75% my fault, minor damage to both ...

Re: Udon Thani International Airport

Anything is better than going via either of the BKK airports - also flying to Hanoi or Luang Prabang as examples, you fly down to BKK only to fly back over Udon, what a waste ! So what percentage of the Thai and/or Expat population, in Udon and surrounds, would you expect want to fly to Hanoi or Lu...

Re: Udon Thani International Airport

Seems there's been a few attempts at direct international flights......?Bangkok Air? to Seoul......another airline to Singapore. Both were short lived.....I thought because of a lack of demand. It's only a matter of time before it happens.....the newer generation isn't going to want to fly south to...

I think I am correct in claiming bank pass books can be renewed at any branch these days so maybe bank statements are easier as well. For future reference. A bit off topic. Yes, that does apply to the KasikornBank:- Over the years I have obtained a new passbook, ATM Card and Statements from the Ban...

Re: Medical Insurance For 1 year O-A Visa Holders

If someone (on a retirement visa) has 800K baht in their Thai bank account, one might think that would give a good indication that they can afford to cover most medical situations that might arise and might thus obviate the need for medical insurance. Though I realise that logic doesn't always appl...
