  1. Driver's License Procedures Chiang Mai

    I renewed my license today and was pleasantly surprised. Previously they wouldn't issue a 5 year license with an elite visa, was specifically told when renewing 2 years ago it had to be a non-imm visa only (oddly enough told it had to be a long term visa to get a 5 year license???) I was expecting another 2 year temporary. Anyways I don't have to go back for 5 years now :) Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect

    As an Australian, does anyone know if a stat-dec from the Australian honorary consul is accepted in lieu of a residence certificate? I have used one before, but maybe 4 years ago and at the time he wasn't sure how much longer it would be accepted as proof of residency for a drivers license.
  3. I've had similar experiences. The visa remains a bit outside of passport controls status quo and I continually get met with confusion. I recon the thaielite meet and greet people are there just as much to assist immigration as they are to assist you.At CNX, I recommend to only go through the Thai only queue (even though it's the furthest from the escalator and the baggage carousel), it has the thaielite placard on the counter and the IOs at that counter seems to be more aware. A few days ago I went through the Thai only queue, and besides the initial confusion because I'm not Thai, the IO was very helpful and was all done correctly. Unlike 6 weeks back, I went through a standard foreigner queue closer to the baggage carousel and the IO wouldn't recognise the visa and began interrogating me about why I had so many stamps and what I was doing in Thailand and that I needed a proper visa blah blah blah. I had to ask to speak to his supervisor, after a few words my passport was stamped.

    sorry to say, they need the original and they keep it. you're going to need to get another cert to purchase a bike.
  5. Who in the airport takes care of your luggage for 20thb lolThis is a troll post... The guy made the username for the sole purpose of trolling thaielite threads.I think he's actually employed by thaielite, he does such a good job of selling the card for them.
  6. ---------------------------------The program is NOT the same program that was started 13 years ago. That program effectively died years ago and went bankrupt, except that a different government and a different group of politicians revived it by pumping more public money into it. I am not opposed to the program, I just think that on the basis of its history anyone depending on the program is walking on very thin ice. I do believe that based on Thailand's spotty political history there is no way to be sure that 5 years from now this new program will have either he funds or the political support needed to keep it going. From what I hear they are having financial problems again keeping it going even with the new "slimmed down" benefits package which is much less than the original package they announced years ago. It is up to you, but based on history, I don't know if this new PE visa program will still be around in 5 years or not. As the Thai bargirls say, "Up to You". "From what I hear they are having financial problems again"Where did you hear that?
