  1. Did mine at Jomtien 2 weeks ago. Took me 5 minutes.
  2. But you can hopefully vote out elected people. With a CEO you have no way of controlling them.

    Reentry permits

    Assuming you are staying at a hotel in Pattaya they should make the report for you there just as is done for any tourist. When you return to CM to I assume your own or rented accommodation make your own report there.
  4. Nothing wrong with succes. That said Zuckerberg has more than enough money in my opinion. For people like him it is more about control and power than money Too much power in the hands of unelected people can be a dangerous thing. What I do dislike about him is how he manipulates and effectively censors FB to suit his own agenda. The selling of information doesn't do much for me either.
  5. Facebook is free to use but has given Zuckerberg massive wealth and influence. I would expect he is expanding the property rental service to expand his wealth and influence. More users and charges to the people renting out property through his portal. There are many reasons why Thailand may have been chosen to roll this out in Asia. I doubt it being the best place in SE Asia to rent out a property is the main factor.
  6. I doubt they will offer anything different to the current and numerous online booking sites. I won't be using it as I think Zuckerberg already has too much money and influence.
  7. Be aware that Amlodopine has side effects other than curing migraine in about 50% of users. Easy to look up online.
  8. Jomtien immigration did say around 6 months ago that there was no need to report your address if you had done it previously and I think this is still the position. If you are that concerned about them changing their stance and receiving a fine which used to be 1600 Baht then I suggest you make the report. Otherwise don't bother and you'll find out when you do your 90 day report.

    Northeast faces drought, as dam levels low

    And they highlight the story with a picture of full dam.
  10. 2 friends did their 90 day report last week at Jomtien with no issues. Neither had changed address and neither had done the 24 hour address report when they entered the country after making a trip overseas. So there seems to be some inconsistency here.
  11. The OP has obviously been in Thailand for some years as this was I think his third licence renewal. As such I am very surprised that he didn't know of the requirement to register his address within 24 hours of arrival. It has re received massive publicity and comment sine the law started to be enforced over a year ago. That said Jomtien immigration were saying a few months ago that there was no need to register every time if the address had not changed. IT looks like they have changed their mind on that. However, from the tone of the OPs writings I wonder if he just pissed off the IO he was dealing with to the extent that they he died to teach him a lesson.
  12. I am British and have done this twice at Jomtien in the last 2 years as I have 2 passports. Both times I wes required to get a from from the British Embassy in Bangkok requesting the change be made. They will send you a standard form and you fill in the blank spaces with your details. The service is free and can be organised with a couple of emails to the embassy. They send it to you vis EMS. They can be picked up from the embassy if you are in Bangkok. A friend did this recently and he was directed to Key Visa who provided the form. THe IO did question why he was using a photocopied form rather than an original but they did accept it. The original from the embassy has an embossed stamp on it so the difference was quite clear
