When I come to Thailand in the future it would be for 60 days maximum, so won't need long term visa - 60 day exte...

Re: best way for short extension

There is also the red stamp at the bottom of your extension of stay which I do not have on mine and I have no idea of its exact meaning. Do you know when it was put there? Not sure when the red at the bottom was put there.... Anyway unfortunately you will need to start the extension of stay procedu...

Re: best way for short extension

Entry stamp 13 July attached (the crossing out and date under the box was done at airport on arrival (not local office). ...and yes...all I have read here and elsewhere also leads me to believe they have made a mistake. Not sure how - they saw the entry stamp and scrutinised my departure card that a...

Re: best way for short extension

Thanks for the reply. 1) do you currently have a Non-O multi entry visa or a Non-OA visa which expires in November? >>>> Think Non-OA 2) or before you left had your visa expired or been used so last November you got an extension of stay valid until November? >>>> NOT expired or used. 3) when you cam...

Short Term Car Insurance

Nissan Almera - Our car insurance is due for renewal on 10th August. We are going back to France on 15th September, and the car will be off the road. Our insurance company says we cannot renew just for the six weeks - we would have to pay a full year's premium, then cancel and claim a refund in late...

Car Covers

Car covers for long term parking, so needs to stop rain/dirt but also be breathable.
Anyone know who sells the best quality car covers? I know outside Big C entrance etc does but what's the quality like? For Nissan Almera.

Re: best way for short extension

I will ask at UT Immigration when I get back there. Unfortunately going over the Friendship Bridge is only valid for 15 days (overland) and cannot keep going over there and back as I have found out in the past. SO one trip over the bridge and 1900 baht for1- 2 week extension still leaves me short .....

Road Repairs

Anyone know who to contact about the state of the road approaching the roadworks from the airport. It's full of (dangerous) potholes to the extent that traffic is avoiding it by turning inside, right by the shopfronts.

The Head Teacher gave him some co-ordination tests (eg playing with farm animals) but at no stage was his complete lack of T...
