  1. For an extension based on marriage to a Thai, the requirements are 400k in the bank or a monthly income of 40k. Am I correct in thinking it can be a combination of both? If so, how does one calculate the amount required in the bank when the monthly income is less than 40k?
  2. Thanks for the replies. So just to clarify - the only requirements are to be over 65 and drawing a UK state pension?. Is there some limit to the number of times they will issue this visa? I intend to return to the UK annually for a holiday. Can I apply for new visa on each visit to the UK rather than do the extension to stay in Thailand with 800k baht in the bank etc.
  3. Hi, what are the actual requirements for a visa based on UK state pension and how do you apply?
  4. Has anybody got a tourist visa from Kota Bharu recently? Are they looking for onward flights etc? How about the border crossing at Sungai Kolok - any requirement to show money?
  5. Seen reports of people being asked to show 20k at Pedang Besar. Is this at the train station or the land crossing up the hill (or both)?
  6. Hi. I want to go to Khota Bharu for a TV - are they asking proof of funds and a ticket for onward travel? Is Sungai Kolok safe to stay overnight? Any other useful info or tips welcome. I don't want to go to Penang.
  7. Gadget insurance

    Insurance for loss and damage etc - mobile phones and cameras etc. Is this possible in Thailand?
  8. Hi, just received a handout from a language school. Standard 36k for 1 year but need 300k in Thai bank to apply - is this for real?
  9. I frequently travel to Betong. Has anyone crossed the border at Betong and travelled to Penang? Is it possible and what are the transport options please?
  10. Hi, with a long term plan to retire to Thailand, I want to learn Thai. I'm not interested in scamming the visa system, I genuinely want to learn how to speak and read Thai. Useful info and personal experiences appreciated. My idea is to study for a year or so, then apply for a retirement visa.
  11. What's the best travel options for Kota Bharu please?
  12. Thanks for all the replies :-)
  13. Hi, I want to go to Savannakhet from Bangkok. I understand there is a bus. I'm sure someone has written a full guide but the forum search found nothing. Thanks.
