    That is bad news. They made visas as easy as it gets in Chiang Mai for a reasonable price
  2. Paid Visa Queue

    Thanks for all of the advice although some is incorrect and based on retirement visas.. Most agents will not do business visas and having been there twice this week I now know why. Most agents that queue will not queue for business visas. Number 3 in the queue this morning was there at midnight. There were only 5 slots today.If you are number 6 (who arrived 05:20) come back tomorrow. Yes , I am my own boss but sometimes bosses actually have work to do. Getting a business visa in Chiang Mai is a chore of major proportions compared to a retirement visa. Yes, I think the fruit stall owner near immigration runs a queue business too.
  3. Paid Visa Queue

    Yes I just talked to one hence my enquiry. Despite the fact that all the paperwork is done they are asking for 20,000 Baht to get a queue and sit with me at immigration. No thank you
  4. Paid Visa Queue

    Does anyone know where I can find a person who will queue for my business visa? Yes I know I can get there by 5am and do it myself but I have a full time job.

    You could download 'Bitlord' it will be downloadable from there around 24 hours after showing, transfer to a USB and watch on your TV at your leisure. Be careful Bitlord has a habit of changing browser selections on download.
  6. Opening a Thai Bank Account- New Policy?

    I just explained my experience. I have had and still have accounts at the bank for 9 years, I have opened almost 30 accounts for clients during the last 3 years and suddenly this week (with a Swiss client) I hit this 'money laundering/anti-terrorist' new set of rules. Finally after a day I got hold of the new set of rules (because strangely enough the Swiss embassy did not want to know about producing any letter or form) and as a company director I could sign a letter stating what the bank account was for, give the bank, yet another, set of company documents and get the account open. The rules have changed (at least in Bangkok Bank) and others may hit problems in the future. A poster said my post had 'no foundation' well time will tell! I was earlier told I was off my head suggesting the new build in Maerim was to be a PT station...hmmm the tanks have gone in, the pumps will soon be installed and I'll still be off my head because it really is a Big C!!
  7. I have been organising the opening of bank accounts in Thailand for clients at the rate of about one per month for the last couple of years. Today I hit my first snag. The bank says that from September 1st Non-Thais can only open a bank account with a letter from their embassy. ( I hate to think what the British Embassy will charge for this) Has anyone heard of this before? As immigration require 800,000 Baht in the bank to obtain the 3 month non O visa, then the retirement visa this makes things increasingly complex.I suppose we must adapt.
  8. Golf Club Membership Chiang Mai

    Royal Chiang Mai were doing a reasonable membership deal a few months back. I cannot remember the price Summit Green Valley has some reasonable prices but beware of afternoon golf there and slow 6 ball games North Hill is the cheapest membership but there is still a green fee. It is also a fair hike from San Sai
  9. AirCon Brands & Support

    I have 20 Samsung Inverter Airconditioners all 18000 BTU. Cheap to buy, expensive to maintain and poor service from Samsung. The problem seems to be that any animals such as geckos or ants get in either unit the motherboard buns out and these are seriously expensive to keep replacing. Equally nobody has any parts so we have to buy spare motherboards so that Samsung can fit in a reasonable time. Never again, I will go for Mitsu or Daikin next time. Daikin you pay upfront but I'm hoping to pay less down the road.
  10. I went to a Moo Bahn where they keep an ID, in my case always my driving licence. On leaving I stupidly forgot to check the licence and just put it in my wallet. I have the wrong licence - Mr Shaun Burke. I am also trying to contact the MooBahn security but it is 30 kms away from me. Thanks
  11. I am inquiring on behalf of a friend. He needs a lawyer or similar who has close contacts with an immigration official but not in Chiang Mai Province. Any province will do but easily reachable by car or air is preferred. I know you would like to know exactly what for but I won't write that in open forum, sorry. Specialist skills are needed that my friend nor I can achieve. Thanks.
  12. replacement glass is a Samsung S6 edge

    thanks for the advise
  13. replacement glass is a Samsung S6 edge

    Thanks, how expensive was 'painless'?
  14. Has anyone every used somebody in Chiang Mai to change the glass on a Samsung S6? I have the replacement glass, I've seen how to do it on You Tube but I prefer to pay someone with more patience than me to do it. ( More patience is easy to find, having expertise less so!) I have tried the place in Pantip Plaza and asked one in Kad Suan Geow but failed so far. Any help would be appreciated except for the 'never buy a Samsung' type of help.
