  5. ED Visa Extension in Jomtien

    Just for an update, i went in on the Tuesday, so 3 days before i was due to do the extension. No problem, i was given the 2 week extension as normal with Jomtien ED visa. Tomorrow is the end of the two weeks and i go back with proof that i have been attending school and i will get the next stamp for 2 months and 2 weeks.
  6. ED Visa Extension in Jomtien

    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
  7. ED Visa Extension in Jomtien

    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/
  8. 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,
  9. WSBK

    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.
  10. WSBK

    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.
  11. Not duty free

    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:)
  12. Local Tennis Court Time Options looking for match

    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..
  13. 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.
  14. 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..
  15. 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
