Re: England v Pakistan cricket

Well the second Test. up North, is a bit more like you expect of an England side at home in early summer. Pakistan won the toss on a sunlit morning & made the mistake of expecting it to last & so elected to bat. Stokes was late ruled out injured & so England, for once, gave a youngster, in the shape...

Re: Yangon trip

In downtown Yangon the two quality hotels are The Sule Shangri-La & the Pullman. They are a bit too steep for my poor exchange rates pound (the first is about 4,700 baht a night & the second about the 4,000) but are certainly quality. I stayed at the much more reasonably priced City Star Hotel, that...

Yangon trip

For years I had wanted to visit Rangoon in Burma. That has not been possible for a few years now, so I had to settle for Yangon in Mynanmar instead. :D An online visa (for $50) is necessary for most non-Asean citizens but easily available & simple to apply for. The applicant then gets a formal lette...

Re: Non Immigrant Type 'O' Pension

Yes that should be possible. However if for some strange circumstance Udon Immigration would not give you an extension then all you would have to do is go over the Friendship Bridge in Nong Khai, immediately return & you would be given a 30 day visa exemption. That would cost you the price of the tr...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

No RJ there is no longer an 'o' visa for visiting family & friends - as I used to get for nearly 10 years. The OP cannot get the 'o' based on retirement for the two reasons I mentioned. 1. He is not over 60 years old. 2. He is not receiving a Government Pension. As I said before, the rules changed a...

Re: Non Immigrant O or OA Visa

However I have recently read (on TV) that it is easy (at most Immigration Offices) to convert a Tourist Visa to a 'o' based on retirement, but must have the 800K in the bank. As the 'o' is expiring you can then apply for the year 'permission to stay' based on retirement as the 800K in the bank will ...
