US daily numbers (106,514) do not add up to the US total numbers (106,925)

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

I went to see if it was possible to extend existing visa and, if so, what I needed. They were friendly as always and, no issues. After that I had intended to start again anyway and, recent events, make this the only option anyway. Thanks for suggestions. Visas are never/can never be extended. Permi...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

[ Thanks STW. I wasnt aware of this form. The issue is a little more complicated as I have insurance under a very comprehensive annual travel policy as part of a bank account. There is a limit of 90 days cover per trip. In the 6 plus years I have been out here, when I know a trip is 90 days plus, I...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

That answer could as easily have been a (we can’t easily find the information we need so we say no) as a (we hav...

Judging by reports in the local press youi are more likely to contract Dengue Fever than Covid, 11,000 cases to date and the Govt is NOT rolling out Vaccination or any safety steps to protect the Population apart for the sporadic spraying . Why worry about Covid . Would that be because There is no ...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

Different immigration office but, I specifically queried in KK in February whether my present, very comprehensive, insurance would allow me to get an OA. They gave me a list and said I could only use the ones listed Did you ask if the verification document that is available from immigration would b...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

Thanks STWW One thing my friend did tell me was that his Medical Insurance Policy (Worldwide) is not from one of the 13 No Insurance Companies, that are listed in the Link, as "participating in the Scheme under the Thai Government Long Stay Visa programme". So I don't know how relevant it will be o...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

I am not sure how many copies of each document he will need to take, but personally I would take three copies of the Application and attached document, just to be sure 1 set is enough as it’s a retirement extension. Proof of residence depends on where he is staying. If he is renting then it is, cop...

Re: Udon Immigration office lately

I have to do my renewal based on 800K next week. I use an obsure bank to keep this money (L&H) because there is never anyone in there. They even know my name once or twice a year. However when I moved to that bank, I had to show them how to make the letter (bi lap long) the way Immigration wants it...

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Talk to Immigration and see what's "on offer" or, get an agent and open up a whole other can of same-same but different worms. As I have mentioned immigration is very good at answering a direct “can I get this” questions They are very poor at answering indirect questions, so a what’s on offer is le...

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

If this is the case then I cant see the borders being opened at all To protect the border then everyone coming in would have to be quarantined which we know cant happen.
It can’t? That is exactly what is being proposed by the immigration officer above.

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Turns out the visa relaxation untill the 31st of July don't apply as such to me , as I have a multiply entry non O visa I'm exempt untill boarders open again . It's a boarder pass which means I could leave and enter Thailand as many times as I like. So the theory is if they don't open the boarder b...
