    Passport Seized Overstay

    You need to go to the court and get a paper explaining you are undergoing an investigation or on bail. You then take this to the Immigration and they give you a 2 week extension (1900฿). If the court date is extended beyond the 14 days you go back to court, get the paper again then back to immigration and they will give you a month extension. Next time they give 3 months but you need the paper from the court and your bail form.

    Moved house, how to change address?

    I needed a certificate of residency from immigration, copies of my main page and visa page of my passport as well as the blue book for my car. They needed exactly the same for my scooter, so two copies of everything.

    Last minute tips before pattaya

    Double check you have fast track immigration. They have changed the premium lane tickets and the old ones are no longer accepted.

    Pushy bars

    I know it’s their job to push the drinks and asking doesn’t bother me that much. What does really irritate me is if they pick up my bottle and shake it to see if there is any left.

    Where to go?

    My suggestion would be Koh Lanta and one of the shops in the Saladan area. most boats from Lanta will dive Phi Phi, The Bida’s, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa etc and these are great diving site. the dates you are suggesting arevthe start of high season so a great time to learn.
  7. Krabi are excellent, never any problems as long as you have all the paperwork ready.
  8. Embassies don’t give money to travelers even if they have paid taxes for years. They will only give you money if Money is deposited by friends back in your home country. Bail money for court is returned to a bank account about 2-3 weeks after the case is finished. It is not returned in cash. When being deported you will be taken to Bangkok and deported from there to your home country via your national carrier.

    Crazy price - Why ??

    The big White bus from the Airport to Ao Nang is 150 Baht and has been for several years. It does drop you outside your hotel even if it’s up one of the small side Soi. If you get the white Songteaw from the main road outside the airport then its 80 baht and they will drop you outside your hotel if it’s on their main route.
  10. Just hope if it’s you that collapses that passers by don’t think the same way. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. It’s a bit different in Krabi. The residence certificate is done while you wait, no photo needed and it’s free.
  12. The tax and transfer fees are about 5%. if you own the house for less than a certain amount of time (5years I think) then you must pay an additional 3%.

    Travel Tip: check aircon in hotel room first!

    I do exactly the same and it is very rare the filters are not filthy. Quick blast with the bum gun and put them back and usually the AC will be fine.
  14. I would suggest you enroll on a basic first aid course. They are usually just one day and then will have a good idea of what to do. The previous times both were strangers, what if it had been a friend or relative ? You would really want to help in some way.

    Vacation trip ideas for Phuket, Krabi and S.E Islands

    Phi Phi is an expensive nightmare. Kata and Karon are ok. I would suggest a mixture of Ao Nang and Koh Lanta.
