Re: Renew marriage visa

Applied for my Non-immigrant O based on marriage yesterday. Turned in 2 copies of everything when I sat down. Went pretty well, except the letter from Bangkok Bank that I got first thing in the morning was not the right letter. Had to go back to the bank and get a different letter. Back to Immigrati...

FREE Science Books! *NO LONGER AVAILABLE*

I'm recently retired, and I have 18 science textbooks I'd like to donate to a needy school. These are mostly upper and a few lower secondary level, many are Cambridge or Oxford Press. They are hardly used, have been in storage, and are in excellent shape. You'ld have to pick them up, I'm on Soi Nong...

I remember, I don't run into many people from Wisconsin! If you haven't seen the website, here's a link:

Re: Flying Bugs

It's actually a longhorn beetle (not a bug), called the Mango-tree Longicorn Borer.

Re: US Passport Renewal

I renewed my US passport by mail earlier this year, just followed the directions on the website. Mailed my passport and a return envelope to the office in Bangkok. I had my new passport in hand in two weeks, no problems.

Re: House and Lake 17 Rai For Sale Ban Tat

The total property is 17 rai. These are rough estimates, based on Google satellite photos... I haven't actually measured these features: The land currently under cultivation (rice) is 6 rai. The lake occupies 3 rai . Two ponds occupy 2 rai. The remaining land is occupied by the garage, house, patio,...

Re: Sourcing a few blank recordable DVDs

To answer your question, I recently bought a few at a small computer repair\cell phone shop on Soi Nongbua, it's two doors down (south) of the 7-11, same side of the street.

(I tried all the electronics shops at Central, none carried them.)

Re: One year(marriage) in Savanakhet

Unfortunately a Lao visa on entry would still be required, I don't know about Cambodia.
As I understand it, a reentry permit is not required, but I'm in the process of trying to verify that.

Re: One year(marriage) in Savanakhet

Thanks. I am admitted to stay for 3 months (no more 90 day checkins). Within 3 months I have to do a border run, when I return I'll get another 90 days before I have to do another one. The visa is good for one year.

Fortunately a border run to Nong Khai is no big deal.

One minor hitch, however, you might want to take note of: Turned in my visa ap...

Re: Exchange Rate Used at Immigration???

I was there two days ago, they used the "Sight Bill" rate from this Bank of Thailand website: https://www.bot.or.th/english/_layouts/application/exchangerate/exchangerate.aspx They even gave me a printout (in Thai) of these rates. Currently 31.7558 for US$. This was very different from my XE calcula...

Cataract Surgery

Lots of posts here, but does anyone have any experience with recent cataract surgery here in Udon (also prices)? I was at the opthamology clinic at AEK yesterday, met with Dr. Chantamoon. She seemed very professional and competent, and spoke good English.

Did you think like as alternative to rent the property on very long term ? As I can see there is still a lot to do for living there so a renting can be a posibility to have some more money for investing in property . Just now I am in Sweden and had not planed to come to Thailand so very soon. I int...

Victor: It is still available, if you have Thai family here you could have them arrange to see it with my wife if they don't speak English (she's Thai).
