  1. Okay, lol to bad he didn't go to Canada instead of Thailand then I guess, I don't know. I don't know how that's really relevant but okay maybe I misunderstood something or am missing something I thought you were replying to me.
  2. Okay so you're saying that the United States and Canada are sharing information what does that have to do with keeping people like this guy out of Thailand? This guy was able to get into Thailand how does American and Canadian information sharing effect this? It doesn't have anything to do with this it just means the United States and Canada share data.
  3. Uh yeah you have absolutely no idea what I've been through and learned in life. More than what most people see and learn in a lifetime. If you knew me you'd be quite surprised.

    AIS TV

    Yes I'm watching TV on my AIS fiber right now and it's absolutely awesome. And no it's nothing like True Satellite TV it's much better. I have all the HBO channels, CNN, Fox News, Headline News, and several other news channels to include foreign and European news channels. I have the FX channel, Fox Crime and several other Fox Channels to include Fox Action movies, and the Fox Movies channel. I have Cinemax and on and on it's 100 times better than True and much better than what True used to be even before they lost their contract with HBO. I have more channels with AIS than I ever had with True. I have the full package AIS internet, cable service which is streamed through the internet, and iPhone service it's definitely worth it. I think it's really the only option for me. True sucks ever since they lost their HBO contract and they were never that great even when they did have HBO.
  5. Gee I thought people with criminal records were being turned away at immigration and this guy was convicted of murder in the United States lol. I knew that was bullcrap now I'm not so worried about my unpaid speeding ticket anymore lol. Even if he was tried as a juvenile a murder conviction would still be in NCIC. Especially since he did prison time and was on Felony Probation. I've been hearing stories about people supposedly being turned away because of criminal records and then I read this story of a convicted murderer getting in the country but unfortunately he has apparently killed again. Actually I am going to pay my speeding ticket in the states I recently found out that the lawyer I hired to take care of it before I left dropped the ball on it, he even refunded my legal fee and apologized. Although I still have to take care of it or else my license will be suspended next time we go back to visit the states one of these days when I try to rent a car. Anyway this story will probably be national news in the states an American charged with murder in Thailand. I'm sorry that anyone was killed at all but I'm very glad that it at least wasn't a local national Thai person because when stuff like this happens it gives all of us foreigners a black eye. I hate reading stories like this especially when it's a fellow American who did something wrong. I just hope most Thais understand that this person doesn't represent us all. Something else I just remembered was when I was a kid in Arizona there was a Thai national who murdered something like 8 monks I think it was at a Buddhist temple in Phoenix back in the 80's. That was huge news for years and extremely tragic but it's an example that anyone can do evil it doesn't matter what country you're from evil is everywhere unfortunately.
  6. Yeah I think that's what I paid if I remember right for them to get all of our documents such as transferring our U.S. Marriage Certificate to a Thai Marriage Certificate and all the rest of the stuff they did for me the first year. I believe I paid more than that total for everything but I'm on a marriage visa. I'm definitely switching to a retirement visa when I turn 50 because I am in fact retired I just retired young I'm only 45. If I were 50 years old I would qualify for the retirement visa now I wish they would make the age requirement lower. I'm just lucky that my wife is a Thai citizen otherwise I probably wouldn't be living here.
  7. Yes I figured. I even told you earlier that maybe their procedures are different for that but I don't know. If it's a retirement visa it sounds like you'd be better off just doing it yourself. When I switch to a retirement visa in 5 years I'm going to start doing it myself. I'm on a marriage visa but I am actually retired I'm just a few years to young to qualify for a retirement visa. My wife is a Thai citizen so we retired here. If you need an agent TSL should be able to help you regardless of whether or not it's a retirement or a marriage visa. Either way you said that you were looking for an agent.

    Apply for US social security

    She's already had all her exams done and she was certified disabled. I don't care I make more than enough and next year when she's 62 they'll have to pay her. Once she's of age next year they can't deny it.
  9. That's the cell phone number for the guy who actually does the work he's probably busy call him back later or Google them and call the number on Google. They are located in the Sindhorn building across the street from the U.S. Embassy by the Starbucks. I don't know how much better I can tell you I don't have the boss's phone number in my contacts. The guy who runs the place is David Lam you should talk to him. They have another office in Bangkok that I've never been to before their number is 02-168-7734. They will definitely answer if you call that number I just tried it. Last time I was in their office it was in the Sindhorn building by the embassy unless they have moved. I do know that they have 2 offices. These guys are the best.
  10. I don't know I googled that city and it says that it's way north of Bangkok maybe I'm googling the wrong place. I don't know the name of the immigration office in Bangkok I just like show up for about 5 minutes a year.
  11. Yes I agree Korat immigration is awesome but I am saving a month because it normally takes 30 days to complete the marriage visa extension process. When I use the agent in Bangkok I get it done in only 2 days. I'm on a marriage visa not a retirement visa. Although when I turn 50 I'm going to switch to a retirement visa because I am in fact retired and then I'll probably just do it myself when I'm 50. I just learned that you can get a retirement visa extension done in only one day so I'm switching from a marriage visa to a retirement visa in 5 years as soon as I can. If I was on a retirement visa now then you would be right I would actually be waisting time and money. On a marriage visa I'm saving myself 30 days so it's worth it.
  12. Yeah I read that and that's not them. What was the name of the person you spoke with. I'm pretty sure you're not talking to TSL at least not the people who I deal with anyway try calling 089-819-9930 and they're a lot more helpful in person than what they sound on the phone trust me they're awesome. Keep in mind that they only deal with the main immigration office in downtown Bangkok as far as I know anyway. If they do deal with any other immigration offices I'm not aware of it but it's possible maybe they do. I'm pretty sure they only deal with the main immigration office in downtown Bangkok only. That maybe why you're having an issue but I don't know. I know that every time I've dealt with them it's been absolutely wonderful I didn't have to do anything except show up for a few minutes one day.
  13. Yeah that doesn't sound like the same TSL. Are you actually in downtown Bangkok actually using the main Bangkok immigration office? They only communicate via email or phone. I just posted this below when I read your exact location: Wait you're using the Chaengwattana immigration office no wonder that's not the right office they only handle Bangkok immigration downtown only. You can still use TSL at Bangkok immigration I live in Korat and I do it and Korat immigration is okay with it. I do my 90 day report in Korat with no issues and I get my extensions in Bangkok through TSL. I got asked about that once at Korat immigration but it wasn't a problem I just called my agent and had him talk to them about it. The TSL agents are only going to do it all for you only if you're actually using the immigration office in downtown Bangkok only. I'm sorry I forgot to tell you that part, it has to be at the main immigration office only for them to walk you through the process. They won't go outside of Bangkok downtown but they're totally worth it if you're using them in downtown Bangkok at the main immigration office. I just read your location I thought you were in downtown Bangkok. Just do it downtown at the main immigration office it'll be fine I live in Korat and I've been doing it for 4 years.
