SCB bank letter and passbook update issue

Extension of stay granted, but there was a difference in the passbook date and the confirmation letter. When SCB updated the passbook, it reflected the date of the last transaction. It was not the same date as the letter. The balances on the letter and passbook were identical. I was forced to return...

Not racist, and I don't care very much what they do. Like someone else said, just panty bunchers.

Re: Udon Immigration office lately

The foreigner herd is being thinned by several factors. Very well could lead to fewer efforts by the Thai government to put more burdens upon us.

Re: Gloom and doom or sum num na

My original post, as typical, brought all the negative, expert responses expected so again I will mention what I was trying to say before. We foreigners are mostly still here with our measly incomes buying groceries, paying utilities, buying gas, cars, m/c and everything needed to support a family ...

Re: What are Essential Businesses

Anyone who has spent their time here making friends with locals and being friendly enough when doing business in the area will have enough contacts to get whatever they need. That will be true whether it is shopping or needing work done around the house. These special measures for the virus have not...

Not a racist comment , just an observation . At 8.30 on the dot the guy who usually wears the neck brace came out and...

I had a good friend who was retired USMC and passed away. I was in the military but not a Marine. Could I come to honor his memory?

Re: Warning : Non OA converted to Non O based on retirement

I had forgotten my original visa type. Long time ago. Thought it was OA. Had to look in expired passport. It was an O. Very happy.

Re: Warning : Non OA converted to Non O based on retirement

My friend in Pattaya says that Jomtien Immigration says insurance only for new OA visas after October. Not for retirement visas.

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

Spoke with a friend in Pattaya yesterday who went through the bank book 800,000 baht retirement visa renewal. When finished, he asked when he had to return to show 400,000 still on deposit. Not required. He also asked about insurance and was told that it does not apply to retirement visas. I know ev...

I'll believe it when I see the official rules posted on the Thai Immigration website. Until then, the insurance companies are offering all sorts of insurance for needs that haven't yet been determined. That's the way I see it.
Yes. Insurance companies rush to snag expats in panic. I will wait.

Re: Is it time to say bye Thailand?

Such an easy solution. Put me in the "If you don't like it, leave" group. I certainly wouldn't live somewhere that I hated. Obviously the whining and complaining does absolutely no good. Sure there are warts, but there is nothing you can do about them except leave. My view too. 15 years and counting.
