  1. I had previously thought that in the case of a single entry 90 day non immigrant visa you could buy a re entry permit if you needed to travel overseas during the 90 day visa validity. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  2. I would suggest waiting 3 - 4 months before applying for a new visa. Issues to consider would include the frequency and length of trips under her previous visa, (just 1 or 2 trips of a few weeks each or long stays?). (Your understanding of the 'no further stay' condition is correct...it is to prevent stays longer than 90 days each on the current visa).
  3. The new look website was online yesterday when I logged on. Looked very different and quite an improvement.

    IPTV with Australian Channels

    Thanks Worgeordie, that’s a great recommendation. It has all the Aussie channels that I lost when Thai Expat TV went offline. regards Mark Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Retirement Visa Scam?

    You mention ‘investment’ above so was this in relation to a visa agent wanting to assist you with a visa extension etc or something else. I visited (unsolicited) one of the visa agents mentioned earlier in this thread at their own office. They didn’t seem pushy or unprofessional and request payment after they have successfully completed the visa formalities (case didn’t seem to be a scam).

  6. I agree with post #3 regarding the Daytona Cosmograph. However, you must ensure that you have the original box and papers (not just the watch), otherwise resale for a profit at a later date would be difficult. I have previously re-sold a tridor day/date president, datejust and explorer 2, however, took a bath on the day/date president as it lacked the original ownership papers going back 25 years.

    Register with Embassy?

    There aren't any social benefits for registering with the Australian Embassy. For that, I would recommend registering your email address for regular updates on events organized by the Australia-Thailand Chamber of Commerce, they have social events every month (at a subsidised cost). https://www.austchamthailand.com/subscribe

    Where to buy house hold items

    Index Living Mall also stock such items Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  9. AFAIK the directors continue to incur fines (not substantial) for non-lodgement of annual filings etc. Notice of the fines are mailed to the company's last known registered address and the directors' addresses. Unlike some other countries, Thailand no longer strikes off dormant companies are many years of no filings, so the fines will snow-ball.

    Marriage visa - work

    I'm on an Annual Extension of Non-Immi O Visa based on marriage, and have no problem obtaining a Work Permit to legally work (with the proper supporting business documents & based on marriage to a Thai citizen). A Non-Immi B Visa was not required, the Non-Immi O was good enough.
  11. Working fine for me, did an online transaction early this morning without any problems, and just checked the site again and no problem with login.

    I buy my cigars from Famous-Smoke. I see that they also stock Backwoods Honey cigars. Their website currently shows Backwood Honey box of 27 for $34. The negative about purchasing from Famous Smoke is the high shipping cost, which generally doubles the cost of the cigars. So the all-in cost would be about $65 plus 1,000 baht duty payable at Thai Post. They send the tracking number so you can trace the status of the shipment which usually takes about 4 days and then you should receive a notice in the mail from Thai Post asking you to come to their designated branch to collect. Bring your passport to the Post Office and be prepared to pay about 1,000 baht duty to collect your cigars. (The post office is usually not the most convenient, eg, the closest Thai Post to me is Sukhumvit Soi 23 however, I have to visit Phrakanong Post Office to collect the cigars and pay duty).

    Cheapest Atorvastatin brand

    Thanks for your concern, however, as mentioned I buy from the pharmacy, and don't bother with the Thai doctor/hospital. Lesson was learned already.

    Cheapest Atorvastatin brand

    I hadn't tried substituting Atorvastatin with Simvastatin, since at the time (9 years ago) I was looking for a generic that was more or less identical to Lipitor, Atorvastatin seemed the best match then at about half the cost. However, I didn't bother checking this with a doctor as a Thai doctor would no doubt just recommend/dispense the pill with the higher profit margin for him/the hospital.

    Cheapest Atorvastatin brand

    I buy Sandoz brand Atorvastatin, and a box of 30 x 10mg pills costs 900 baht at pharmacies in Bangkok. It's made in Slovenia and imported into Thailand by Novartis.
