  1. My wife had both our daughters at Bangkok Phuket Hospital. A Dr Supajhit ( or something close to that ) Nothing but praise for he whole process both times and not really that expensive either. Great rooms and the nursery staff are excellent.
  2. 3 months after first application were asked for medical and police check.
  3. Got an email on the 4th Jan approving the application for the missus. Came with 100 visa so great. 5 months and 7 days since first applied at VFS in Bangkok. Looks like waiting times sre comimg down.
  4. Norlund, Thanks for that, was exactly what I did. Strange how the same medicines cost 3 times as much as in Australia. We live and learn.
  5. Looking to get some prescription medicines so am seeking a large well stocked pharmacy in the Maha Sarakham area. Cheers
  6. Well as it hapened I went into my bank to get the required letter for immigraton and whilst there asked the lady serving me where I could get copies made. She promptly said we can do them for you and proceeded to make all the copies required for the princely sum of ZERO baht. Hats off to the main branch of Ayudyha bank in the city centre and thanks to others for replies.
  7. Ha ha sorry to laugh but exactly what we ran into on monday. Pay 1,600 baht and you get it in a week, don't pay and at least 30 days. Officialdom at its best!!!! Aussie embassy give 28 days to produce documents, great way to force us all into the clutches of the greedy. Everyone I saw whilst there paid the money - probably to comply with embassy requirements.
  8. Anyone know where I can get some photocopies done in Mahasarakham city? My printer just died on me and am due to visit immigration shortly.
  9. Rubbish. You do not have to do anything at the Embassy. A Thai marriage registered at the Amphur is legally binding in Thailand and is fully recognised in Australia.
  10. Is it possible to do the Thai police check without actually attending their office in Bangkok? Seems a bit of a hassle to actually have to go in person for someone to just check the records.
  11. I require an official translation of mariage registry certificate from Thai to English. Any one know of any translators in Mahasarakham or Khon Kaen that can do this and have the "stamp" to add to the translated papers..? Thanks in advance as really dont want to have to go all the way to Bangkok for this.
  12. Did you read the post above yours?
  13. Ha Ha Ha try Dar Es Salaam
  14. Here we go I am in process of selling my car and believe I require a certificate of residence from immigration. What paperwork do I require to take in for this? I am here on retirement extension and already have a paper in my passport notifying them of the "Aliens" residence.
  15. I have been offered a position in Australia which requires me to work for 8 days and then have 6 days off on a regular basis. My question is if I then fly in and out of Thailand every 2 weeks can I do this with visa exempt stamps or will I require some other form of visa? I worked this roster before while on an extension through retirement but don't really want the hassle of getting another extension of stay if not neccessary.
