    I don't understand the logic of Thai Immigration

    leave Chiang Mai. Simple. I am. I am going to another province where the Immigration cops actually like people!!!!

    Has Chiang Mai changed since late-2016?

    since Lamphun is in Chiang Mai province, is it possible to go there if you live in Chiang Mai to get a Resident Certificate or Retirement visa extension?
  3. i keep 800k in the bank. no problem, it gets interest. If you use Krungsri Bank, they dont tax the interest by 15 percent like other banks, as long as the interest is below 20,000 baht. If the immigration do not accept my 800k at my renewal next June, will have no choice but to go back to Spain. Thinking of doing it anyway as its getting more ridiculous by the day here.
  4. actually, the 800k in the bank is not dead money, the interest is ok here compared to the UK current accounts. if you have to do a scam to get your Visa, then now is the time for you to slither off back to whatever hole it is you slithered out of to come here. I think one particular City not far from Chonburi is going to see a mass exodus. Unless of course corruption will return after a week or so, like it normally does. Cant take anything here too seriously. To me, its just the British Embassy panicking. Lets face it, legislation in the UK is ridiculous, and now its found its way here. I bet the Americans and Canadians, wont follow suit.
  5. Today I was looking on the British Embassy in Bkk Web page, and saw the announcement below. So if you have not already done so, and you need your Visa in January 19, and you were using the method, it is now time to get your cash over to Thailand. It just keeps getting worse and worse out here. From 1 January 2019, the British Embassy Bangkok will no longer be providing British Nationals with letters confirming their income. This letter has previously served as a supporting document for obtaining a Thai retirement or marriage visa. The British Embassy Bangkok is stopping the certification of income letters because it is unable to fulfil the Thai authorities’ requirements to verify the income of British Nationals. British Nationals should now demonstrate that they have an amount of at least 800,000 THB in an account in Thailand for no less than three months prior to the visa application, or a monthly income of at least 65,000 THB transferred into an account in Thailand. For marriage visas British Nationals should demonstrate that they have an amount of at least 400,000 THB in an account in Thailand for no less than three months prior to the visa application, or a monthly income of at least 40,000 THB. A bank statement should be used as the supporting document for obtaining a Thai retirement or marriage visa.

    Chinese Mob at CM Immigration

    CM Immigration is the absolute pits! Someone needs to take charge of these people and organise it for them. Its not blooming rocket science ! Just needs a seperate line for each type of visa, use cheap barriers to from the lines, have the lines well signed, and a Security guard there to stop the ignorant Chinese, and other queue jumpers. Job done.
  7. What a load of old bull. Aint ever going to happen i remember this rule coming in last year, did not happen then, will not happen now. in Hua Hin, you want a Res Cert, they ask for 500 admin fee. is this going to stop? of course it wont.
  8. still much better than the pittance we get in the UK
  9. it probably true. that is what Thais do its all about the money with them How much can they extort from the walking ATM farangs! they do it the whole time.

    Why Chiang Mai?

    third picture, near the dam. one of my favourite places in CM. Cycle there a lot. New bridge is very impressive. some great eateries there also, and now the road has been re surfaced, not so many punctures!

    i went there once, not again. boring ex pats playing pool, trying to look professional with their little pool gloves on the staff were very off hand. no thanks, i would rather pay more
  12. bozo, like the majority of the idiots
  13. i think you will find its one idiot scot and one not quite such an idiot South African. how pathetic. i am surprised the thai men did not beat the crap out of them I would have

    Thaifriendly thread

    blimey mate, how long did that essay take? dont waste your time with the stupid dating sites, you cant trust a woman you meet there, and she cant trust you, because you should be getting loads of interest. if you insist on using them, in your profile speech, tell them that you are older, very successful, got loads of money and you want to take care of a lady and her family. You will be inundated!!!! But seriously dude, get a life mate. Go and meet a woman in the Mall, the gym, a restaurant, on the street. Seriously mate, its so easy here. You dont need dating sites

    some of us do some research before buying or renting, where most of this would be discovered before moving in mate
