  1. Yes I was referring to the photo's. For adult passports a countersignature is only needed if you can't be recognised from your previous photo, or for lost/stolen applications.
  2. A countersignature is not required for a normal passport renewal.
  3. I wouldn't sweat the address too much, the requirement is proof of address and/or residence and for residence it has been reported that a simple copy of an extension of stay will suffice. I really can't imagine that the UK care for one moment where anyone actually lives.
  4. China Air: JFK to BKK via PEK

    According to "Sleeping in Airports"; "Free WiFi is available at Beijing Airport. Connect to the “AIRPORT-FREE-WiFi” network. You will need a Chinese mobile phone number in order to receive your User ID and password via SMS, or you can scan your passport information at any information desk in order to receive your User ID and password. Boingo account holders should be able to automatically access Boingo hotspots in the airport. "
  5. You can for a UK passport.
  6. UK immigration at Heathrow

    She can enter with you through the UK/EU line.
  7. 1 or 2 Day Overstay?

    2 days over will get you 2 days fine, i e., 1000thb. I just went out 2 days over through BKK. Not even a hint of a frown from the IO, I think he was glad to have something slightly different to deal with.
  8. Worth noting that it does not have to be an "agent", anyone can submit your application for you and pick up the new passport. Useful if you have friends who might be going to Bangkok around the same time. I applied myself and a friend's girlfriend picked mine up.
  9. How wheelchair friendly is Dubai?

    This site rates it pretty well; https://wheelchairtravel.org/dubai/public-transportation/
  10. Non O multiple and divorce

    I've entered twice this year on a non-O marriage after divorce in December last year. No problems.
  11. Residency Certificate for Passport renewal

    Yes, my UK bank statement has my Thai address on it. I am sure that the bank letter would be fine albeit most likely not really needed, but if easily obtained will do no harm!
  12. Re-entry permit

    1) 10-15 mins. 2) After security, before immigration. See here;
  13. Holidays without rain ?

    What time of year? Hong Kong and Phuket hardly qualify as not having rainy seasons (or cheap for that matter).
  14. Visa question

    If Doha will do it and what they will want to see is an unknown, at least to me! As for the money, it would need to be in an account in your name.
