  1. Thanks for the clarifications, from Joe & Suradit i will try again at Soi 5 to get the extension early and report back here next week. As for getting a proficiency test, not heard of any of the students from the school im going to being asked at Jomtien immigration office..Although, almost everyone(including myself) who has left the country and came back in through Suvarnabhuni has been interviewed and some asked to write in Thai. Thanks again
  2. Thanks Joe, im sure its just a Jomtien thing..re the reporting before..None of the students at our school have managed to get their extensions done early! regarding the 7 day grace, i took that from the pdf 90 day reporting document..linked here..https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/981135-laws-regulations-police-orders-etc/
  3. Hi, I have an ED visa, and should go for the 2nd extension next Friday at Jomtien. I have family visiting and have planned to be in Koh Chang from Wed to Sun. I have tried getting extensions done for my ED early in Jomtien before, and was told by the officer, no only 1 day before. If i go on Monday, Will they charge and write overstay in my Passport? The money, not so much of a problem but i dont want overstay marked down in the Passport. I was thinking that you get 7 days after the date to report, but that may just be for retirement. Thanks,
  4. We all pre booked the VIP tickets, A friend tried to get one more, 3 days before the race but was told it was sold out. For regular tickets, im not sure. The Grandstand above us on the main straight looked packed..but plenty of seats available at the stands further round the circuit.
  5. I had a great time this year, first time id been to WSBK in Thailand. Getting to the circuit and parking excellent, well managed traffic at all the entrances exits, no queuing.
  6. I ordered a Jappo bottle of whiskey from Tokyo, using an online retailer, posted and delivered to my home in Thailand..postage was about 350 baht. I was expecting some sort of tax. But the good news is...there was no tax added...I dont know if this was a one off, or its due to the trade deal with Japan..once i finish this bottle i will find out:)
  7. There is a Tennis court on Soi 5 Pratamnak Hill, always locked when i pass, but some one must use it as it looks in ok condition..
  8. When Scotland realises they would be forced to take the Euro, there would be the same result as last time..45% and proud. But this time i think Scotland should wait until the smoke clears and we see whats on offer.
  9. Hello, I am currently on an Education Visa, which is marked as a single entry. I am due to get my first 90 day extension on the 29th June, no problems there. So my next stamp after that will be the 27th of September, but i will be out of the country at my friends wedding and plan to be back on the 30th September. Is there any way i can do this..? I understand i would get a re-entry permit before i left Thailand, but as i comeback after the extention date on the 27th, would this mean my ED visa would be cancelled?? Thanks..
  10. Hello, i am seriously considering the Elite Visa, and wanted to know from other members about the golf and spa vouchers. it says 24 per year for both Golf and Spa, and there are some great golf courses on the list. Are the vouchers for a free round of golf?, or is it a discount voucher? Same question re: Spa Voucher. Thanks
  11. Not sure if this is related, but i am having the same issue with 3BB in Jomtien, internet on and off even though my laptop always shows connected. I ran the diagnostics and it said the issue is with some one locally using a router with the wrong country code set on the router, googled the problem and the answer was, knock on neighbours doors and find out who is using a router from another country!!

  13. My UK Netflix account is now working in Thailand, nice. always streamed easily over the VPN but now no need for that. i have not had time too see if all the UK content is available wile not using the VPN though.
  14. Hi, i never did find a dealer for FMF in Thailand, but i ordered from this site in the USA. http://www.motosport.com They have or did have the option of paying duty up front, which was way cheaper than the duty that would be calculated on arrival here in Thailand. I took the chance, got two FMF exhausts and a new helmet, had it delivered to a Thai friend so there wasn't a Farang name on the package, Don't know if that helped. Came through no problem with no additional charges at Thai customs. But of course that could have just been luck!
