Re: FINALLY! It's Official! Immigration WILL accept proof of income for the retirement visa

This still seems to present problems for some. Someone who has used income verification in the past may, like me, only have brought lump sums over once or twice a year. The requirement to have a 12 month history of monthly transfers becomes problematic for someone who has not hitherto had a pension ...

Actually, I was the most beautiful boy in the world. My mother told me (and everyone else) so.

Re: Thailand approves medical marijuana

Interesting list. I never imagined that I might, one day, find some benefit in having Crohn's! That'll be a first.

Re: Certificate of Residency...Change

I have a house yellow book which can, in Chiang Mai, be used instead of a certificate of residence for most purposes. You can even get a pink ID card with it if you want (I never have). The exception is purchase or sale of motor vehicles. You could once use a yellow book for this and this use was st...

Re: Immigration and money - in a nutshell

Now I'm going to make a GUESS : If you can put 800,000 into a Thai bank account, but it won't have been in the account for three months prior to your visa expiring, my guess is shortly before your retirement visa expires, or if you are a new retirement visa applicant, you can leave Thailand, obtain...

Re: Planning trip in February / March ? Beware

I was here for the 2011 election, which was held on a Sunday. At the time, I was in Dansai in Loei for the Phi Ta Khon (Ghost Festival). This usually takes place over a weekend, with proceedings starting very early (about 3.00 am) on the Saturday with the retrieval of a magic crystal from the local ...

Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

It's not only Asian countries: https://www.citylab.com/life/2018/06/barcelona-finds-a-way-to-control-its-airbnb-market/562187/ My own condo management actually introduced a rule against short term lets at the last AGM. Really, it shouldn't be be necessary to make rules against breaking the law - we ...

Re: True proof-of-income now required in Chiang Mai

I was under the impression that you can renew the retirement visa as much as three months in advance. One of my friends insists you can renew only up to one month in advance. Do you know which it is? That was several years ago. For the past few years, it has been no more than 30 days with the excep...

Re: Something some wish not to discuss Prostate Cancer

This is the British NHS web page explaining their policy on the PSA test.

Seems pretty balanced to me. Testing is not without risk - unless you plan on ignoring the results of the test!

Re: Brits Behaving Badly....

They aren't measuring the same thing. The 2013/14 figures (906,312 visitors) are based on "Figures from individual country authorities/governments". That will, presumably be based on entries into Thailand from wherever - including third countries. The 2014/5 and 2015/6 figures are provided...
