  1. That is interesting because 180 days could(theoretically) be amassed quite legally with an METV. Perhaps that applicants passport revealed a mass of visa exempt and SETVs ?
  2. I am aware of this. I was responding to a post that implied BKB charged 500Bht for ALL transfers.
  3. Are we to understand that you believe that everything that appears on these pages/threads represents "The Truth, the Whole Truth and nothing but the Truth" ?
  4. The problem is that some use TV anecdotes to fuel their Conspiracy Theories.
  5. No longer exists ! Maybe you should try using OFX
  6. Did you actually witness this alleged incident ? If not you are making rumour out of a one sided unevidenced anecdote. Again you are attempting to inflate a minor issue involving a couple of "ne'er do wells" into something it is not. Millions of people enter Thailand and never experience any problem at the airport or anywhere else.
  7. What is meant by "hassled"? Were you refused entry?

    New USA Passport

    If you did not see these several "forms and ledgers" how do you know they existed or were filled in?

    As a matter of interest where do you come from? All countries that I know and have visited clearly differentiate between the "Customs" and "Immigration"(border control) at airports and other points of entry.
  10. The OP said "I've had health insurance with THI Thailand for 7 years" If that link is opened it will be found there is no company called "THI Thailand" offering health insurance although the website lists <> 27 companies that do. As others have observed the OP needs to identify the company which provides his insurance cover.
  11. Nonsense ! I legally stay in Thailand and have done so for over a decade. During this time I have left and returned on many occasions using the airports without experiencing any problem at all. The same applies to millions of others whether long stay or short term tourista. How would you advise someone travelling from Australia, Europe, the UK or the USA to enter/leave the country if Thailand's airports are to be avoided? You are inflating a minor issue which only involves a few 'ne'er do wells' who are attempting to scam the system.
  12. A police clearance certificate is only (AFAIK) required by those seeking a job as a teacher.
  13. Mmmm Where can double/triple tourist visas be obtained? Are Ed visas a soft option ? How many visa exempt runs can be done by land ? etc. When will things go back to "where they were"?
  14. My informed thought is that rapid de-acceleration (high speed crash) whilst wearing a seat belt can result in severe injury. http://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/ajr.111.4.833 The lady with "just bruising" would have been wise to have sought medical advise.
  15. An extension of stay is normally applied for in the place where you are living ! On what basis will you be making application and are you aware of, especially, the financial requirements?
