  1. Thank you ubonjoe. Much appreciated.
  2. Need advise on renewal of expired British passport. I emigrated to New Zealand about 18 years ago and have been using that passport since. My British passport expired 7 years ago but would like to renew it so I can apply for a passport for my 5 year old son. I'm living in Korat now. Any information on how to go about renewing my passport would be appreciated, either doing myself or using an agency. I realize google is available but I would prefer to hear first hand from any members who have experience with renewing their passport.
  3. Thanks all for your help. Reserved the Sukosol Hotel so all is good. Thanks
  4. Thanks for that. Much appreciated.
  5. I should have put any helpful answers "not idiotic answers" from people who don't actually take the time to read the question. Recommend was the hint to the question. Yes for your information I have checked google and seen many hotels. I wanted a "Recommendation" "MALT 25, NOTE the word Recommendation "from people who might have resided in one around the said area. Although Malt25 don't bother replying just stick on the kettle and have a nice cup of coffee and swat some mosquitos to cheer yourself up this morning.
  6. Friend of mine wants to take his 5 year old son to USA for a couple of months holiday. Son has both US and Thai passports. His ex-wife is ok with the trip bit they are not sure what is required as she will not be travelling with them. Do they need to get any papers/documents signed by her before they travel and where can they do this? They live close to Khon Kaen city area. Appreciate any helpful information.
  7. Can anyone recommend a reasonable but not backpacker hotel around the British Embassy area? Only for one night and travelling alone so doesn't need to be flash. Will be going to both British and Indonesian embassies on Feb 20th
  8. I was in blood pressure and cholestoral medication for years but decided to take action. Started walking, cut down alcohol, eat healthier. Actually started taking rolled oats each morning and added fruit. Lost 20kg over 18 months and went from walking to jogging 10km 3 times a week plus joined a gym. Off all medication now.
  9. Thanks guys for being so informative. We are planning a visit there next year for a months holiday and look at some areas and schools. Would my wife be able to open a bank account in the UK on her holiday or tourist visa or can we open a joint account? We will be staying with family during our holiday as my apartment is rented out long term.
  10. Theoldgit, thanks for the info. Very much appreciated. Yes getting the money out will be an issue. Hopefully someone might have an idea.
  11. Looking at relocating back to England within the next 2 years. Married 10 year and been together 12 years. We have one son who already has his British passport. Main reason for moving back is education and I have family back there. Wife has over 10m baht in liguid assets which she want to use in the purchase of a home in the UK. I have still have business interests back there so no issue with employment for me. We have travelled around Asia and New Zealand but she has never been to UK. A few questions which some of you hopefully can assist me with. 1, Which type of visa do we apply for, tourist or spouse? 2, Do ourselves or use an agent? 3, Will the above assets help in visa application? 4, Can she travel to Europe on the UK visa? 5, Can she learn to drive and apply for a UK driving licence on the visa? 6, How long before we can apply for a British passport for her? 7, Can she do any study or voluntary work in the UK on her visa? 8, What is the best and legal way to transfer the above money to the UK and will it be taxed? Appreciate all helpful replies.
  12. Dentist, we take our child to one across from Fairy Plaza, Modern Dentist. Schools: have Mantadeedol, Penbury, Khon Kaen International school, KKVS, all have English and Thai speaking teachers. Visa, KK immigration in my opinion are extremely helpful and efficient. Done 2 visas there plus 90 reporting and in and out pretty quick. Have a run up there with your missus and they will tell you everything you need.
