    One step closer to legalisation

    I am sure the only reason any of this is being considered is not for the benefit of the Thai people, although they will benefit almost by accident. I am sure the real reason is some very powerful people realize exporting Thai sticks and Thai weed will be more profitable than rubber, shrimp or rice. Their concern for their citizens just happens to coincide with the legalization in Canada and the States.
  2. The American consulate still issues the income letter and it is needed to get visa. What has changed is that proof of income is required by Chiang Mai immigration. I just did my extension last week and this was my experience.
  3. In Chiang Mai last week i renewed my retirement visa. When I went to the US consulate I had my income statement filled out already from a copy I picked up on my last visit. I was told to fill out new form that has additional sentence added that Thai immigration requested. The sentence says: the U.S. Consulate does not guarantee the contents of the sworn statement. When I submitted my paperwork to immigration the officer highlighted in yellow this sentence and told me I needed additional paperwork. I went home and copied a pension statement and returned to immigration. She glanced at it and said fine. So I said no point in paying the Consulate the $50.00, if this paper is enough. "No" she said you need both. This was last week on Tuesday....things might be different already

    Has anyone done a retirement visa at the new location yet? Is there any sort of queue system? Thanks
