  1. Thank you. Happy to hear it, now I can enjoy the rest of my weekend. Hope you have a good one too.
  2. My visa exempt stamp shows that it expires on 6 March. I can't make it to cheng wattana on Monday 5 March. Can I still get the extension done on the last day? If not I will take a flight to KL on Sunday.
  3. Silly OP, every government has had a subsidy scheme, but Yingluck's was not designed a subsidy, it was supposed to be a cost neutral mortgage scheme that turned out to be designed to be a scam that was so badly run it will end up costing thailand 1 trillion baht with only a minute fraction of thst money reaching thai farmers and an even more miniscule fraction reaching poor thai farmers. This government's subsidy had nothing in common with the scam perpetrated by the Yingluck government.
  4. Its got nothing to do with the case, it was supposed to be a cost neutral subsidy, and she was in charge of administering it, The scam lost vast amounts of money, up to 1 trillion baht, she is getting off lightly with only 500 billion or so imo. Surely a court should decide guilt not a govt order? Its an administrative order, so its within the law, if Yingluck doesn't agree with that interpretation she can take it to a judge to get a ruling, but basically afaik, she must abide by the order, if she doesn't then then will use a court to enforce the order. Its not linked with her court case.

    Marriage visa entry

    Main thing would be that I never need my embassy to prove my address, they charge nearly 4000 baht for that service, I can get this for free theoretically.

    Marriage visa entry

    Thanks I understand now, the important thing for me is to get the yellow tabien ban as I have to leave Thailand on a regular basis anyway so not much advantage in converting right now.

    Marriage visa entry

    I got a non immigrant o type multi entry based on my marriage to a thai national from the Thai embassy in London. Is this equivalent to the extension to stay you get from the local immigration office? With this one I have to leave the country every 3 months. Can I report to immigration instead? Can the one I have be converted if t are different? Can I get a yellow tabien ban using the visa I have now?

    Thailand is the Most Religious Country in the World

    I think you guys are being way too hard on Thais, the vast majority say they are religious as religion and life is inseparable here, it pervades all aspects of their lives to some extent, its part of their cultural identity; however ask them if they think they are good Buddhists or if they know much about Buddhism and you will get a far more realistic appraisal of their religious affinities.
  10. Thanks for the answers, I am not in Thailand currently so thought I would check here. I suppose the question is better put like this: can income earned in thailand, providing I have the supporting documentation to show its origin, be transferred from a thai bank to a foreign bank? It's not huge amounts, but could possibly be in the 6 figure range, but it would exceed inward remittances.

  13. What are the restrictions of transferring largish sums of money out of thailand through my thai bank account to another person's bank account abroad eg uk? I know I need a letter showing where I obtained the money, but I don't know anything beyond that.
  14. What nonsense, as usual. There are no soldiers to be sen on the streets of Chiang Mai, there is no discernible hostility towards the current government - though not much enthusiasm either. Most importantly, the popularity of Thaksin has waned considerably, though there is more affection for Yingluck. When, precisely, were there two soldiers to every civilian on the streets of Chiang Mai? Do you live in Chiang Mai? Do you speak Northern Thai? I see you pretend to live in Chaing Mai and try to boast that you speak Northern Thai. Who cares? You don't even know whats happening April 6, 2015. Get out more.It's 5 June now Eric. But don't worry it's still 2015.
  15. Do some research on what constitutes a true democracy. Elections are but one small part. And if not done properly, are definitely not democratic. You can ask the North Koreans about that one. ??? Elections are but one small part???Democracy Starts with elections. That is a major part. One person, one vote. Good or bad, you get what the majority voted for. But you don't get what the majority voted for ever and not just in thailand.
