  1. The staff at Chiang Mai immigration have always treated me with the utmost curtesy and respect, some times the waiting for 90 day and tm 30 can be a bit tedious, but that may be improved in the near future hopefully. The frontline staff do a good job.
  2. A very rough guide ,,,, rough being the operative word comments on a postcard please
  3. How many UK citizens have actually registered their presence in Thailand with the UK embassy, this would give the the embassy a more realistic number of UK expats living here and maybe with a more realistic number of UK expats living here will give the embassy more leverage in their request to negotiate with Thai authorities on our behalf.
  4. Retirement visa extension. Normally I usually for fill the financial requirements by a 50 / 50 split 400 k in the bank and 400k income supported by UK embassy letter. My plan now is to have monies from the uk paid directly into my Bangkok bank account, for example 400 k spread over a 10 moth period, and 400k on deposit in Bangkok bank. Will this method be acceptable to Thai immigration?

    Is Thai bottled water safer than tap water

    Floride in bottled water. Read if you have an adverse reaction to fluoride . Within guidelines but never the less interesting. http://www.tm.mahidol.ac.th/seameo/2016-47-5/27-691223-1112.pdf

    Hottest electric shower unit available in CM

    Ensure your electrical system is sized correctly for anything above 5.5 kw , mainly the wiring. Would strongly advise posting on the Electrical the electrical forum to get advice on the correct sized breaker and cables. many good electrical experts on there.

    Sodium Hypochlorite

  13. https://www.acro.police.uk/Police_Certificates_Online.aspx 45- 80 pounds depend on service ie express or otherwise. GP depends on practice mine cost 35 but some charge as much as 240.pounds. notarization of every document submitted approx 30 pounds each document. Can all be done in one week as mine did. You might think that is hard try bringing a dog over as well???
  14. Absolutely not a problem to obtain police criminal check in the UK takes about a week, if you pay a bit extra, Medical just go to your GP again a matter of days, the biggest pain is to get everything notarized, again not insurmountable but does cost. But all this depends on your budget. Good luck with your endevour.
