  1. Never been bothered nor seen any taxi touts in Khon Kaen airport. Taxi desk is next to car park, turn left after walking out of arrivals. All the taxis use meter and I have never had any problems.
  2. UK visa question

    They got married in Thailand and got all the papers at the amphur in Bangkok. He got papers from the embassy to say he was free to marry etc. He says he never registers the marriage with the British embassy at the time. Does he have to register the marriage with the embassy? They have registration certificate from the amphur in Bangkok.
  3. You don’t drive a gigantic pick up so no one should, is that your view. What a pathetic statement. I drive a humongous pick up truck and also a small motorbike. From what I’ve seen over the many years living here is motorbike/car/pick up and truck drivers show zero respect on the road for anyone even pedestrians. I’d say the fault is 50-50. Incidentally was the motorbike driver wearing a crash helmet? Now I’ll just fire up the old gigantic pick up 4 wheel drive and head 100m down the road to Big C Mini for sandwich,,,, because I can.
  4. Internet and tv in khon kaen

    How’s the bar coming along, any opening date yet?
  5. UK visa question

    Appreciate the information guys. Thanks.
  6. Friend is looking at moving back to UK with his Thai wife and their child. He’s lived in a thailand over 12 years, been married 9 of those. Has apparently got £90,000 savings in UK plus money oversea, overseas cash he would like to keep secret. What’s the best visa option for his wife and child. Child I believe had British passport. Does child also require a British birth certificate ( if that’s at all possible ). His wife has never been to UK so never held any visa except a spouse Visa for Singapore when they lived there for 3 years for his work.

    Where is your bar in Khon Kaen? Nothing can beat a nice cold beer and some sports.
  8. Nothing like relaxing on the beach, digging your toes into the sand and have some idiots filthy ciggie butts stuck beteeen your toes. I’ve never smoked, love the beach and also embrace the idea of the smoking ban. Now all they have to do is stop the smokers from throwing butts on the sidewalks and into drainage ditches. Although like most other counties it won’t happen. Singapore is strict in smokers and it works there. Inwas in the UK last year and seen smokers outside the bar throwing butts on the ground even though ashtrays and bins are provided. Smokers you have brought it upon yourselves. ???
  9. Good on you mate. Age is a number only and don’t concern yourself about others. My gorgeous Thai wife is 20 year younger than me. We’ve been married 9 years and been together 11 years.
  10. Retirement visa expired.

    Thanks Ubonjoe. I'll be back in LOS in a few weeks and will get my retirement and multi entry visa done then.
  11. Retirement visa expired.

    Sorry to crash the PM's question. I have a Non Imm extension of stay and a multi entry visa obtained in Thailand. It expires whilst I'm out of the country working. When I return to Thailand I will get a retirement visa. My question is, Do I need to apply for 30 or 90 days visa from a county outside Thailand before I can return, or can I get a tourist visa on entry and then apply for retirement visa? I have the funds in my Thai account already. I'm travelling on an Australian passport but not in my home country just now.
  12. Renew expired British passport

    Thank you ubonjoe. Much appreciated.
  13. 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.
