Re: covid-19 mask

My feeling is that unless one is sick there is no reason to wear a mask. The problem is that one may be infected, asymptomatic and not realize they are spreading the virus so a mask might help. In certain situations I intend to wear a mask in order to, hopefully, make other folks more comfortable in...

Re: Covit-19 local fatality?

Panic buying due to rumors or panic buying in anticipation. I guess it's how you look at it. If other countries were to mirror the Chinese way of quarantine, then panic buying IMO would not necessarily be a bad thing. Back in the daze of living in Okinawa during typhoon season, I was advised to sto...

Re: Visa Extension

A friend had his extension of stay turned down today in Udon. The IO wanted to know the "source of income". He was using the 65k/month method. He had a letter from BBL showing 12 months of foreign deposits plus his Passbook. The IO said it was a new requirement. Yesterday I went to immigration to a...

Three things I do. Pour into a container with lid and put in trash bin. Use as a substitute for lighter fluid for charcoal BBQ. Sometimes mix into compost bin.

Re: Coronavirus Now in Thailand !!

Something to consider. This is an excerpt from npr.org dated 29 Jan. 2020. Another important reminder: The CDC recommends a pneumococcal vaccine for children under 2, for adults who are 65 or older, for people who smoke and for those who have certain medical conditions. It's not that this vaccine wi...

Re: TM30 Clarification Received from Udonthani Immigration

Saw this testimonial on the Facebook page of Expat Info Udon Thani regarding one man's recent experience with the TM 30 at Udon Immigration. It's encouraging news! I went to Udon Immigration to report back that I'd been away overseas briefly. They were not really interested, they said "no change" a...

Re: New license plates needed

They are 4 years from new but the black has truly bleached out, both front and back. What transport offi...

Re: Udon Thani Retirement Extension - what do they need?

I will be renewing my retirement extension at Udon Immigration Office later this week so doing a quick check on what is needed. Based on Immigration saying income letters having a 6-month validity, I don't recall reading of any other impact from the income letter changes. So how does this look? Me....

Re: FBAR Report

Unless your retirement plan is held by or administered by a foreign bank then you have to report funds in that bank via FBAR if those funds exceed 10,000 dollars. I am assuming that the Thai bank in which you have your money deposited is NOT a part of your retirement plan so you have to file a FBAR....
