  3. Thai Visa Choices

    Before moving to Thailand on a permanent or semi permanent basis, best to sort out your health insurance possibilities beforehand. After 70, things do start to go down hill for most people. Mac
  4. can i just leave?

    "If you are not registered as married in your own country then no problem.." Wrong! Married is married, married in Thailand, and you're married in the U.S. at least. No U.S. "registration" necessary, or even possible. Mac

    Great find, got a url for it?? Mac
  12. Someone should suggest to them that they also need to keep their Immigration "permission to stay" paperwork up to date. Being under a court order is one of the reasons for an extension. Mac

  16. Dentistry

    I've been going to various Thai dentists for lots of years, settled on one in the Rangsit Market. Here's a note I sent to my sister yesterday. Mac Noticed a broken tooth, upper left, 4th in, a couple days ago, no pain, zip, facing of the tooth MIA. Worried a bit about cost, perhaps extraction, then a fake tooth or bridge of some sort. Alternatively, a cap/crown, both costly. Hit the dentist this morning, in and out in 35 minutes. Looks like he treated it more like a filling, cleaned out the interior, then built it up in layers to where it was before. Seems to have worked, looks OK. Cost? Baht 1,500, about $48. Not too bad, I figure. Mac

  20. Parking at Nong Khai Border

    I parked there last week, five days-four nights, baht 400 total. Have been parking there for 20 years, never a problem. And, yes, park in back. Mac
  21. New TM 6 forms

    Went to Laos from Nong Khai last week, the older version TM6 departure card quite acceptable, as was the new version for a couple of folks who'd obtained it on arrival at Swampy in January. Old version for arrival at Nong Khai acceptable, I had a number of blank ones available filled out ahead of time. I did ask the Nong Khai IO folks about the new TM6, told they'd not yet arrived.... Mac
  22. Must say, the only "stupid question" is really the one you don't ask! If in doubt about an issue, ask. Mac

    Guys Two cantankerous posts have been removed, please keep it civil. Mac
  24. Photocopies?

    I was at Pathum Immigration this afternoon with my B&W copies. The gal wanted color for several pages, but happily for me, she went and did the copies herself on the govt's machine. Mac
  25. FYI, I was just over to Pathum Thani Immigration for my annual extension, 49 km one way. The gal checking docs said I need the TM30, and of course, I didn't have my wife's tambien ban or ID card with me. Back home now, debating whether or not to go this afternoon, or tomorrow. Mac
