    How long has this been happening?
  2. Sorry, You don't ...

    I never get that "Sorry..." message when I use the "Mark the forum as read" function.
  3. Questions About Tourist Visa

    You should go to your local immigration office and apply for a seven-day extension of stay, fee 1,900 Baht. The extension will be denied and you get a stamp asking you to leave the country not later than 14 March. During this period, you will not be on overstay.
  4. Removed an off-topic post and the repliesto it. No more discussion of the documents for a marriage extension, please.
  5. There are executive directors, who work in the company, and non-executive directors, who do not work, only attend board meetings. A director is, using the full title, a member of the of the board of directors. In my view it is not really a job title because even for an executive director it gives no idea what job he does, unless it is something like director of finance, but chief financial officer would be a more likely title in such case. In your situation, if you want a job title that sounds more prestigious than restaurant manager, you can call yourself Chief Operating Officer (COO), but this title is usually found in large companies and the employee going to the market to buy things would be two or more rungs lower than the COO on the corporate ladder. An executive director, ie with a job description, can always get a work permit, but apparently some regional departments of social security do not allow directors to sign up for the social security scheme.
  6. I believe you need two things : Job title Job description Director, restaurant manager, chef are job titles. Go for director, if this is acceptable to the Department of Employment, otherwise restaurant manager. The text of the job description can be as long as it needs to be and should include all activities that you think you will be carrying out. From what you mention, it could be "In his capacity as [job title] Mr Polarwood is responsible for the general management of the kitchen and the restaurant including, but not limited to instructing, training and supervising the staff selecting the correct type and quality of food, equipment and other materials used in the restaurant and ensuring the correct transportation supervising and ensuring the correct preparation of the food in accordance with the high standards of the restaurant ensuring a high standard of hygiene and cleanliness in the kitchens and the restaurant [any other responsibilities and actvities you can think of and which are not forbidden for foreigners]" You said that you may occasionally have to cook certain types of food when the person to whom this task is assigned is unexpectedly absent and this activity would then fall under "ensuring the correct preparation of the food"
  7. New TM 6 forms

    Do you have the choice between the old and the new form? I slways use the form I get from the flight attendant and am not offered a choice.
  8. Air quality in Bangkok drops again

    The USA has air quality standards for PM, not safety levels:
  9. Air quality in Bangkok drops again

    AQI colors EPA has assigned a specific color to each AQI category to make it easier for people to understand quickly whether air pollution is reaching unhealthy levels in their communities. For example, the color orange means that conditions are "unhealthy for sensitive groups," while red means that conditions may be "unhealthy for everyone," and so on. Air Quality Index Levels of Health Concern Numerical Value Meaning Good 0 to 50 Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk. Moderate 51 to 100 Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups 101 to 150 Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected. Unhealthy 151 to 200 Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects. Very Unhealthy 201 to 300 Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects. Hazardous 301 to 500 Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected. Note: Values above 500 are considered Beyond the AQI. Follow recommendations for the "Hazardous category." Additional information on reducing exposure to extremely high levels of particle pollution is available here. Source: https://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=aqibasics.aqi
  10. Air quality in Bangkok drops again

    From the news article linked to in the OP: Is the director general of Thailand's Department of Pollution Control saying that in a country with bad economic and social conditions a high death rate from air pollution is more acceptable than in a country with better conditions? Is she saying that the same level of PM2.5 is less unhealthy in Thailand than in the USA?
  11. New TM 6 forms

    Currently, the TM.6 number is very unlikely the primary search key. Lose your departure part of the TM.6 and when you leave the country the immigration official will give you a new one with a different number without batting an eye.
  12. For the mother, there is the non-O visa to travel to Thailand for the purpose of visiting her child. Some consulates may issue this visa only for a single entry and some may grant it only if the child being visited is of Thai nationality. The best place to apply for this visa will probably be the consular section of the Thai embassy in the mother's country of permanent residence.
