  1. Many thanks to both of you for your help. I will go to the Amphur with my partner and the kids to do this then.
  2. Hello everyone, I am working here for 8 years now, and my thai girlfriend and I (we are not married) have 2 kids. Regarding my tax declaration last year, since we are not married with my partner, the revenue department asked me to provide a document a certificate of children issued by the District Office, to be able to deduct 30,000 THB per kid in my total personnal income tax computation. They said that the thai birth certificate is not enough as a proof. Does anyone know what that certificate of children is? I mean I can go to my local district office but since we are not registered on any tabien baan (blue book) here, I dont see what they can do for us. Thanks in advance for those who have some experience in this regard.
  3. Thank you very much johng for your precious help
  4. Hi Everyone, I read this thread with a lot of interest because I am about to experience the same situation I live in Rayong province and I will buy a second hand car from an owner of a different province (Prachuap Khiri Khan). Based on what I read I am not exactly sure what and where to do; - Shall I get any document from the DLT in Rayong first before going to pay and get the car? If yes which documents? - Who is responsible to change the name in the blue book? myself or the old owner? Where is this done? - Once I drive the car back to Rayong - do I need to change the plate to be in the new province? Many thanks for your help
  5. Thai Sayings and Phrases Wanted

    you can also say: คนในอยากออก คนนอกอยากเข้า ( kon nai yaak ohk kon nok yaak krao) which literally means " the one who's inside wants to get out. The one outside wants to get in"
  6. Many thanks to both of you for your clarifications.
  7. Thank you very much Arkady for our detailed answer. That is really helpful. Another question: For foreigners living /working here while not being a permanent resident, is it a must to be registered on a tabiaan baan? Or does it become a must after being a PR? I've been living here for 7 years in Rayong province without being ever registered on a tabiaan baan. My partner and my kids are registered on the family house blue book upcountry but I have never been myself, shall it be blue or yellow book. Many thanks for your help.
  8. Hello to all, I am applying for the PR this year after 7 years working here for a Thai company, and father of 2 thai/foreign kids. Another question related more to the tabian baan than the PR : We (my thai partner and I plus our kids) rent a house. I understand that we shall ask the house owner to give us the tabian baan, and put my partner's name and daughter on it already now (they're both thais) and mine can be put on it after the application for PR is approved. Is that correct? Actually, shall we keep the tabian baan blue book with us as we live in the house or shall it be the owner? Sorry if my questions are a bit stupid. Thanks for your help
  9. Thanks for the advice - both of you. Will wait for the official announcement.
  10. Thanks for the answer ubonjoe - From the immigration website, they announce quotas normally in august/september and applications are open from September to December.
  11. Hi everyone, I am applying for permanent residency in september this year. I was wondering if you could send your application with all requested documents at the local immigration (Rayong/MapTaPhut in my case) or do I need to go to Chaeng Wattana office for this? Does anyone has experience to share with this? Thanks

  14. Birth hospital cost

    I thank you all very much for your advice. We had a great experience last time in BPH with an extremely professional doctor and excellent service. I also consider that since my wife gave birth to 2 kids before, the risks of any complication is certainly not close to zero, but much less risky than for a first birth. Anyhow thanks to Sheryl for sharing that story in Burmungrad - It is indeed important to keep this in mind.
  15. Birth hospital cost

    Hello everyone, A few years ago, my thai wife gave birth (natural without complication, no caesarian surgery) to our first daughter in Bangkok Pattaya Hospital. Being an expat at the time, all the fees were handled by our international insurance, but i still happened to sign the bill which was roughly 120kTHB. During the pregnancy, the doctor asked my wife if we would use our insurance or if we would pay by ourselves, because in the latter case the cost would be only approx. 50 kTHB. I have been localized by my company and the insurance provided by them does not cover birth/doctor consults/ vaccination etc... We are having a second baby this year and I will so pay by myself. Does anyone know the real cost of a natural birth in a international hospital (Bangkok Pattaya or Bangkok Rayong)? Thanks
