Don't know if you thought of it, but the copies may also have to be signed by the owner. Every transaction I've completed in Thailand which copies were requested had to include my signature.
Good Point, I will pass that on

Download or pick up the notification of having a foreigner staying. from immigration. I doubt the police station will have it. Get the house owner, or the lead name on the blue book to complete it. Take it to your local office of the police. They will sign and stamp it. Job done, no charge. Keep it with you when you next have business in Immigration.
A word of warning though. It should be done within 24 hours of you first residing at that address or the house owner, not you, is liable to a fine.So get your story ready. :lol:

The only thing I could possibly tell them is that the owner doesn't live in Thailand and that obviously caused the delay.
My last two 90days each reported this address, yet Imm suggesested I use my GF address when we applied for a driving licence, which we did.
Are records kept of the 90days? or should I try and get this form to corrospond with my next 90days?
Im trying to do this by the law but my hands seem tied by other peoples responsibilities.
Maybe its easier to wait for the owner to send copies of the house book and id card??? and in the meantime I can write to Imm asking for guidance should the copies not be available. ......any thoughts??
This situation must affect a number of renters???

I would like to know if any recent "retirement visa holders" annual renewals in Nong Khai have had to provide any document for proof of address. This will be my sixth renewal but the first in Nong Khai and from this thread I assume that they sometimes ask for something.

If so what were you asked to provide?

I have attempted to call the Nong Khai Immigration for two days now and only get an engaged/busy signal.

I live in the far end of Khon Kaen so hate to make a long trip up only to be turned around.

Do others retirees on this forum have a Yellow Book?

Have ran into a Catch 22 on obtaining a Yellow Book. My amphoe states I must have the Identification/Photo page of my passport translated into Thai by my embassy. My embassy states that they do not provide any translation service. Back to the amphoe to explain this with only a reply of "sure they to, just go ask". Not hearing the part that I had allready asked.

The translation is not required to be done by your Embassy, just go a translation service here in town. There's already an existing thread on Yellow Books here:
