  1. Are the new rules retroactive? Do they apply to people who rent or plan to rent houses?
  2. Hi Firstly, Happy Songkran to all of this forum. Secondly, my husband and I left Thailand three days ago for a tour in the region. At the immigration office in Don Meaung airport, we paid 2400 baht in total for two single entry re-entry permits (1200 baht for one). However the amount stated on each official receipt is 1000 baht. When we asked why, the immigration officer explained that if we brought our own forms and supplied our own photos, the cost would be 1000 baht per permit. The additional 200 baht per permit is for paperwork and a photo taken using their webcam. Is this official procedure or is he trying to earn some quick buck during Songkran? I understand the cost of a multiple entry re-entry permit is 3000 baht? What will the cost be if the immigration officer does the paperwork and the taking of photo? Is it 3200 or 3600 baht?
  3. "Private property. Trespassing is illegal" in Thai please? I wish to put it on a signboard on the gate fronting my house. Thanks.

    Hiring domestic helper from Myanmar

    Is the information referenced by the link up to date?
  5. My husband was assigned to work in Bangkok and we arrived here from Yangon about a month ago. While living in Yangon, we used to have a domestic helper and a gardener, the latter being the husband of the former. We were thinking of bringing them over to work for us in Bangkok. What are the administrative procedures and the type of work permit that we need to apply in order to bring them over?
