  1. I have a non oa multi entry visa (retirement) and will be arriving the end of October. I plan on moving about the country frequently. 1 month in Bangkok, 3 weeks in Chiang ma I, 1 month pattaya, hua hin etc. Since my address will keep changing based on where I stay, how do I handle the 90 day reporting. Does immigration use the current address at the 90 day point? Thanks
  2. Travel Insurance

    Thanks will do that
  3. Travel Insurance

    Planning on living in Thailand for 7 months and want travel insurance just in case of accidents or medical emergencies. Amex and many only cover 60 days. I am US based. Any insight into a good company would be much appreciated
  4. the dangers of Beach Road traffic

    When i took my motorcycle safety course in the states you learn two valuable lessons. One is that you have to assume no one sees you....ever. The other is even if an accident is not your fault, it is your fault. The last one is the most important. How can you prevent yourself from being a victim in pattaya. Drivers habits will not change, so it is so important as a pedestrian you do everything in your power to avoid being hit. For example, looking both ways before crossing, even if it is a one way street. How many of us have seen scooters driving the wrong way because the soi they want to reach is closer going the wrong way than if they traveled around the block. Crossing at a red light? Make sure all the cars have stopped before crossing. There are way too many nuances to put here, but as a pedestrian, i assume no laws will be followed and i must do my best to protect myself
  5. OA long stay visa aquired

    Nyc. No notary required.
  6. O-A Long Stay Visa.......

    Is online reporting an option?
  7. I just returned from my thai consulate in the United States to pick up my OA long stay ME visa. They were incredibly efficient and helpful. If you go in prepared with all the documentation that is listed in your home country website, you most likely will not have an issue.
  8. Bring 60 or 90 Day Medication To Thailand

    Tough to say. I mean, the people who brought in a 3 month supply with no issue may not have had their bags searched. The real test would be if customs found the 3 mos supply and then said...no problem Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. A passion for bikes is inborn l think so.

    What happened? Im thinking of just getting a scooter but the stories of death really are oft putting. Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. my wife wont believe me

    Never got married in the US and thankfully will never get married here. I dont understand the rationale anymore. Its a financial risk that does not justify the rewards Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. My understanding is if you get a notarized affadavit from your embassy about available funds, you can just use that instead of having the money in a thai bank acct. I know it must be signed off on by the thai consulate as well..ubonjoe will havebthe details. P.s. there def needs to be some formal recognition dor ubonjoes help re Visas. Its really invaluable, so thank you Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. My samsung tv is 5 years old and fantastic. My samsung galaxy 6 is still running fast and perfect. You had a bad experience, but these types of issues exist on every single mfg out there . Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. Hurt my big toe, should I see doctor or not?

    So lovely. I just couldn't believe I actually did that. The first toe broke during songkran. Raised sidewalk met my big toe. Then the 2nd Big toe also met a raised piece of concrete. I threw out my flip flops after that. Lol Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  14. I deleted my facebook app from my phone. It was the best thing i have done in a long while. Reading and posting was making me angry and it was a time suck. Sometimes taking a break is a great idea Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  15. Hurt my big toe, should I see doctor or not?

    I did the same thing in thailand to both big toes on consecutive days. Truly not much you can do. I buddy taped mine together for 2 weeks. It takes a few months to fully heal though. Give it time. Hospital cant do anything. Sent from my SM-G920V using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
