    Immigration woes —- Again?

    I think most people have it all worked out. Those with problems and endless complaints vocal on TV are most likely a small percentage of the total.

    Immigration woes —- Again?

    He is not the only one to make such claims. And think about it, if you knew a way to save time and money and increase convenience, would you advertise it broadly knowing that if many people did it, it would not work anymore? Probably not. These threads prove how little so many know about CM Immigration and how so many are making it more difficult than it is.
  4. Is there an eyewitness reporting seeing line sitters queuing up at 8pm or is this just hearsay?

    Currency exchange shops won't take my old U.S. $100 bills

    Most places have been refusing the old ones for quite a few years now. Singapore change alley is the last place I knew that took them but that was several years ago.

    Hourly pay odd job man

    Paying him the 300 for the plumbing is no problem. Perhaps generous but not excessive, enough to get him back quickly if you need him. I have paid a good electrician 500 for a couple of hours work and do not regret it. Gardening does not warrant such high pay though unless it is trimming a high tree or something particularly heavy. You have to pay a premium for a few hours work compared to a long term daily rate.

    Garden & design shop

    Luther has the right idea. Find places you think are well done and ask who did them. Check out the top end housing projects.

    What Thai towns and cities have such a system? I lived several places in the city of CM and neither place had a sewer connection.

    cheap gas cylinder?

    Can you now exchange your empty bottle for a full one anywhere? We had some difficulties in the past changing suppliers and having bottles refused when offered for exchange.

    When is a child not a child?

    No. Child fares are less than adult fares and the child occupies a seat, except for babies, don't know about how that works. Perhaps not all airlines but the 3 I use regularly are and have been this way for many years.

    So for the vast majority of the people here, this is much ado about nothing.

    Another change for U.S. Citizens.

    A first time applicant does not necessarily mean a visa conversion, it can be from somebody who has a Non Imm already, can't it?
