    Uthai Thani

    Hi, could you confirm postal address as I've apparently just received a delayed 90D receipt from them diverted from Nakhon Sawan but have been given no details for the next notification or visa extension, thanks.
  3. You have 24 hrs to leave the country or get a 7 day extension at your immigration office.
  4. You cannot work in Thailand without a work permit. You cannot work on the visa used for marriage.
  5. My wife had to legally change her name at her registered amphur (hometown) within 3 months(?) ie new ID card, updated house book, change of name certificate etc - or is my memory playing tricks on me in middle age?
  6. Ask yourself why I fat, old farang is interested in a beautiful, young lady a 1/3 his age with poor English? Is he exploiting your poverty for his own sexual abuse? Will he submit to HIV test?

    what do you do if you are too old to get insurance?

    Give up whoring (at your age) and use your home country health care?
  8. When I looked at accident only insurance the coverage seemed pretty low vs premium, any current recommendations for reasonably priced/heartily covered accidents? Thanks.
  9. Hi twix38, would you mind saying what Thai policy you have, I'm currently self-insured but might be interested in high emergency cover, thanks.
  10. Unfortunately my Bangkok Bank require a work permit and I've been rejected by many different banks, the only other that accepted me was GSB at my wife's hometown but they will not provide online banking, any other recommendations for international users?
  11. Hi, I tried to transfer savings in Bangkok Bank online to UK. The only transfer purpose was "Salary Repatriation" which is not the case (Non O family visa extension). i) Anyone tried this option without being on WP? (Just in case I ever had any queries into my finances at a later date.) ii) Presumably this can be done in branch - does this require paper trail from original transfers from UK to prove it has not been earned in Thailand (it has come over in tranches and passed through various accounts and different banks over the last 5 years). Many thanks.

    YES. I'd get my f'cking head kicked in!

    A cut above?????

    There's a chance the farang is/was a sex tourist or subsidising a wife/family for sex with a younger/more attractive gf/wife. Why should I speak to some fat, old stranger simply because by the accident of birth he has the same skin colour as me? I will continue my sawasdee krabs to the Thais I know and respect around town.

    concerning the 100 days post death ceremony

    Ditto here, rule of thumb wld be: 200 for someone you know, 500 for close friend or family, 1000 for best friend or immediate family - but essentially whatever they gave you last time so as not to lose face but not look like your being soaked (the wife keeps a spreadsheet which was inaugurated over the first 2-3 days of married life).
