  1. That's what I wanted...a fixed term acct...old-school Then I saw the word 'securities' in a questionaire and balked out Need more time to investigate. I put the money in my current account for the time being. Zero English spoken by the two young-ish bank clerks btw
  2. Just deposited some money (1mil) at KTB yesterday I was always using current accounts over the years here and abroad (never had any serious money ) The clerk (zero English) suggested some type of account with 1.5% interest. I agreed and later was given a bilingual survey form to fill. At some point it said 'Are you new to SECURITIES investment'? I said that I don't want to invest in 'securities' I proceeded to switch to an ordinary account.(for the time being) Anyone knows what this thing is about? btw...I know what 'securities' are but how does it play with my account?
  3. Gary...what papers exactly did you have to take to Immigration? I live in my Mrs house but we are not married. Should the tabian baan and her ID copy suffice?

  7. Hi all Just talked to an agent in Penang in order to get a Non-O visa (ret) Among the usual requirements he asked for proof of retirement (from my embassy) Is it a new rule?
