    aliexpress shoe size

    at a price of 600-1000 Baht for a pair of shoes it is worth a try. He can still make somebody else happy if he is not satisfied with the shoes

    in Thailand, I would buy Crocs from the Online Shop lazada. You can pay the bill with the postman at your doorstep. Order one pair to get a hang of their size. Be aware at a price of 1000 THB these are probably copis, not an original. Yet easy to achieve. Crocs are perfect for Thai weather conditions and they protect the toenails from harm on Thai sidewalks fulla bumpers https://www.lazada.co.th/catalog/?q=Crocs+Shoes&_keyori=ss&from=input&spm=..search.go. or those: https://www.lazada.co.th/products/wako-i165372173-s201502022.html? https://www.lazada.co.th/products/solid-i140031415-s160096013.html?

    Rotten dolphin carcass washes up on Samui beach

    "Irrawaddy" dolphins ? The species found at the burmese rivermouth ? Aren't they a sweetwater species? A little bit further south from Ko Samui there is Khanom Beach. All along the waterfront one can rent boats to go out for dolphin watching. They are rather numerous & familar to this area. Wouldn't take a dolphin very long to swim from there a few miles up north an "Irrawadyy" dolphin would have to swim all the way from the Irrawaddy River to Singapore before it entered the Gulf of Thailand

    Visa transfer & Entry question

    thanxxs a lot for your reply! I will do as you advised
  8. I’ve got a Permit of Stay based on Retirement, valid until January 4 th, 2019, along with a Single Re-Entry Permit. I have just received a new passport and I am still in possession of the old passport with all the relevant stamps. I am planning a visit to Thailand for 29 days, from June 5 th thru July 3rd. My question: Would it make sense to enter by a 30-day-Visa-Exempt Entry in order to keep the Single Re-Entry valid ? A few days after my entry, I am planning to visit the Sisaket Immigration (my location) to transfer the stamps from the old to the new passport. Will it be a problem if they see the 30-day Exempt Entry in my new passport? Am I supposed to use the Single Re-entry on any visit to Thailand, no matter how long or short I plan to stay?
  9. a Multi-Entry Tourist Visa from either the Thai Embassy or a consulate in their homeland UK. It gives them a headache-free stay of a minimum of six months. A border run must be made before the expiration of the first 60 days, though. They can check the website of the Thai Embassy London for the requirements to meet when applying for a METV The Fee for this visa is Pound Sterling 125.oo **For application in person, visa fees are payable in pound sterling (£) in cash only.** **For application by post, visa fees are payable in pound sterling (£) in cash or postal order made payable to the Royal Thai Embassy.** Multiple Entry Tourist Visa : Multiple Entry Tourist Visa will be valid for 6 months from the date of issue. You must enter Thailand within the validity of visa. Travellers with this type of visa will be permitted to stay in Thailand not exceeding 60 days for each entry within the period of 6 months from the date of arrival in Thailand. Please check the immigration stamp in the passport regarding the exact length of stay. Required Documents For Multiple Entries (stay up to 60 days for each entry within the period of 6 months) A current passport with validity of over 6 months beyond the date of application and at least 2 blank pages Visa application form completely filled out Two (2) recent photos of the applicant Original bank statement of the applicant showing a balance of at least £5,000 (for 6 months) or a print out with official stamp of the bank A letter from the applicant's employer (in the UK and addressed to the Royal Thai Embassy) If you are self-employed, you self-assessment and a company registration document are required. A photocopy of the confirmed air ticket to Thailand A photocopy of the hotel reservation confirmation in Thailand http://www.thaiembassy.org/london/en/services/7742/84451-Tourist-Visa.html
  10. this is another possibility and he had in mind to do exactly that! Thanks for mentioning it! Yet now he changed his plans completely and will stay in Thailand first for a prolonged holiday before he leaves for Cambodia, thus receiving the full expenditure on his 60 days SETV
  11. the topic took a new turn, another friend said that not only can you get a Single Re-Entry permit for a 60-days Single Entry Tourist Visa, but you can also get a Multi-Re-Entry Permit. Said it only is a matter of the costs, the Single Re-Entry permit costing 1100 THB and the Multi-Re-Entry permit would be 3800 THB. Is that true, can you get a Multi-Re-Entry permit for a 60-day SETV ?
  12. that's what I told him as well . . . now he has decided to change his travel plans completely . . . first off a long stay in Thailand and the trip to Cambodia afterwards . . . . just fine He was happy for being informed of the flaws and possible fails of his initial plans and forwarded a thank you !. . better safe than sorry
  13. Hi, and friend of me is planning to travel to India, Thailand and Cambodia. He plans to apply for a Single Entry Tourist Visa at the Thai Embassy in Germany. After his entry into Thailand he plans to stay only 14 days and then subsequently travel on to Cambodia. 2 months later he wants to re-enter Thailand again. He asked me if it is possible to buy a re-entry permit on the Single Entry Tourist Visa , so he can use it for another entry when he is coming from Cambodia I told him that the wording "Single Entry" means that he is actually just entitled to ONE entry, and that leaving Thailand before the initial 60 days are over, voids the Visa. As the wording tells! I also told him he could easily return by air or land border and receive a 30-day visa exempt entry (he is German) which he can extend on any immigration office inside Thailand for a fee of 1900 THB for 30 more days. Yet he insists he can get a re-entry permit on the SETV as he claims to have read this information on a few Thailand Travel Blogs
  14. so what's the problem? Landlords could rent out their condo for two weeks, but actually write a one-month-contract for the renter. All they need to do is adjust the price. If the rent would be 1500 THB per day for 14 days, just write in the contract 750 THB per day for 30 days.
  15. it has never been allowed to work holding a Non-O married visa or extension. It already could be constituted illegal work if you are helping your wife in any kind of commercial business
