  1. Is Thailand still in this asean malarky? Don't seem to be free movement of labour, but not surprised due to the xenophobic nature of Thailand.
  2. Wcoast is right, a lot of Cambodian don't have ID cards birth certificate nothing, also getting a passport is expensive and drawn out, 45 days and 110 US $ is the cheapest, you can get one in a week for about 289 US.
  3. Yes you can get a 60 day tourist visa in Phnom Penh, visa costs $40 , get an agent will cost more $$, you need to provide bank statements and onward flight tickets, better to get a 30 day stamp on the border and another 30 day extension 1900 bht, only applies to most Western countries though, good luck.
  4. Didn't get asked/sent a survey after our recent visa decision last week.
  5. What survey is it? Where are all the questions pertaining to the survey? I've got a lot of answers for them.
  6. You have to take into account she has no assets, no children, house, land, job etc, only asset was about $ 800 in a Cambodian bank which was also overlooked. I did read somewhere that 95% of visa applications processed by the UK embassy in Bangkok were granted.
  7. If you read the previous posts we met all the required questions and financial affordability in the application.
  8. You can get a certificate of residence with a non imm O visa, never the less a lot of banks will open an account on that evidence only.
  9. There's always one that says that, every time this opening a bank account comes up, about every 2 months or so, don't all tourist's stay in a hotel?
  10. You can't get a certificate of residence on a tourist visa.
  11. Talking to friend here, manager of a hotel in Jomtien and other properties, lived and worked in Phnom Penh for a good few years, said he wasn't surprised at all about the refusal as she is Cambodian. He said you have to be well off, own a property, have a very good job and family in Cambodia, otherwise a visa will not be issued. Has known many cambodians apply and fail due to not having these assets. I suspect as soon as the application is lodged the first thing they see is nationality, that raises a red flag to start and the application is refused. I,m guessing that a lot of Cambodian people who get visa,s to UK don't ever return, they will have all the data about that, hence the refusal.
  12. I also don't understand why they think my sister is not a UK citizen, did they also assume I was here illegally and my partner and not on any kind of visa? Did they not believe I would not be returning to Thailand with my partner despite letter from the building manager that I live there and copy of blue book and green book of my ownership of viehcles in Thailand, this decision is seriously flawed in my and others opinion.
  13. No, first time.
  14. We were of course very angry about the (prohibited activities) remark, what actually was he/she infering? Massage parlor work immediately springs to mind, also a bit of bias I suspect as she is Cambodian. I know there's no appeal about the decision, who would I write a letter of complaint to?
  15. Thanks for the advice Tony M, won't be applying for another visa for her until October when I return to Thailand.l won't bother with any letters from my family as it seems they aren't valid without some kind of ID which may have to be original. I will have to get the bank to print me the last 6 months statements. I shall just state reason for visit, spend Christmas and New year with partner in his house. 1 month stay.
