  1. I agree people should plan for the worst if they can find that large amount, but most that can't will just have to wait and see what unfolds. If there is nothing to unfold then most people who can't plan will only have 3 choices (1) leave (2) VA (3) borrow the funds for 3 months. I shall wait and see what unfolds in the coming year and then make my choice. Regards Scotsman
  2. Have a read of the web link on the UK website it still tells you that importing your funds of 65k or 40k with a letter from the bank will be excepted from IO. So no change from the BE on this and we all know this is not excepted by IO at this time. There will have to be a change from BE or the Thai immigration law so all you can do is wait. regards Scotsman

    Nvidia Shield (2017)

    I have just order one for $179 +the $42,16 shipping & import fees and payed in pounds 176 I did not know about this Thai government degree so I will be hoping this arrives next week without a problem. If it is stopped by customs it will be Amazon US that will have to sort this out or give me a refund. I will come back on this thread and update you all later.

    Recordable Dvd Player

    Use DVD R.W if you want to record Tv programs over and over again and DVD R for any movie you want to keep.

    'backin Up' Dvd Movies

    http://www.dvdshrink.org/what_en.php I also use this software to copy Dvds along with nero. The dvd 8x is slow if you have a 16x dvd burner or higher say 20x then they will burn faster. The better quality makes of dvd blanks last longer and are not prone to errors.
  14. I have never heard or seen any dress code rule that says you have to have a long sleeve shirt or pictures with a long sleeve shirt for anyone to get a visa. I have been to the immigration many times for visa & 90 day reporting with a short sleeve shirt & jeans with no problem what so ever. Its a hot country many people only wear short sleeve or tee shirts whats wrong with that. Is this a new instruction for everyone who goes for a visa now? I can see that a dress code is needed in govermment buildings but a long sleeve shirt when its a hot summers day is over the top. May be the fact is he had no sleeves that he got the problem for.

    New Taxi Cabs Appearing In Pattaya

    If the nice people at pattaya city hall wanted market forces to be introduced to the public transport system they would allow more companies to setup real meter taxi services that use the meter. This will not be allowed for a longtime as long as the pattaya baht bus mafia run things in this city I say vote with your feet & wallet DON'T USE THE MAFIA NON METERED TAXI.
