    re- entry permit

    continuing on this topic can anyone tell me if i can get the reentry permit at any immigration office
  2. Update ..... i visited the Chinese consulate in Khonkaen on 8th March. i was clearly yold that they do not issue visas to non Thai citizens.. When i mentioned foreigners with non immigrant visas that had managed to get their visa there, they told me that it had indeed been the case but , they say, last month this new policy was introduced. A bit frustrating. However if you live in the KK area it may well be worth your while using them to check your credentials before going to Bangkok. I would advise phoning beforehand, as they seem to have a habit of closing on certain days for meetings etc
  3. i need a tourist visa for china. i'm a uk citizen living in ubon. i phoned the consulate in khon kaen, but they told me that only thai citizens can apply there, and that i must go to bangkok to arrange it. however i seem to remember a post some time ago where somebody managed to get their visa in KK

    Making a will to cover UK assets

    just like to say a big thank you to everyone who replied. i only just found the replies to my topic. I was looking elsewhere. Not had time to read everything yet but seems like some good advice. Thanks again
  5. I usually deposit funds in my thai current account to satisfy immigration of the 3 months rule. Does anyone know whether I can use a savings account to do this?
  6. thanks ubonjoe i think ill go to my local branch just in case
  7. I need to renew my non mo visa based on retirement, so I need to get a certificate confirming the funds have been in place for 3 months. Can I get such a certificate from any branch of my bank ,( KTB ) or does it have to be my own branch.
  8. Maybe this has been covered on one of the subforums. my apologies if this is the case I am British, living in Thailand, legally married to a Thai, I wish to make a will that will cover my UK assets. Any advice, avoiding pitfalls, etc would be appreciated.
  9. My 90 notification date was Sept 12. Am i correct in thinking I have 7 days grace, which would mean I am ok to renew it on sept 19, or will they do the procedure of counting the 12th and 19th, thus making it 8 days, and facing a penalty? Also, do all immigration offices follow the same procedure? In my case it will be Ubon. Sorry if this has been answered before.

    Motorbike driving license age

    Very useful information on this topic, but not sure if the following was covered: I refuse my 16 year old stepson to ride our Honda Wave 100 on the main road until he has his motorcycle licence. I have done the test myself and am under no illusion that this will any way improve his awareness as a rider, However my concern is that if he is involved in an accident, and damage or injury is inflicted on someone or something else, will the fact that he has no licence mean more money for me to pay out. We have the bike taxed and insured, although I don't know if the insurance is valid for a non licensed rider.
