Another successful Outreach in KK. 96 customers were served. 2 staff members from ACS made the trip. They started at 0730 and finished at 1130. 5 wardens were in attendance. Thank you ACS for a job well done.

A pair of blue framed reading glasses was left at the KK Outreach. I will bring them to the next Udon Outreach in March.

ACS Outreach 2018 Schedule

Also, from my limited experience the biggest problem was not following the info below:
not accepting cash/baht anymore:

All Bank Drafts must be:

Purchased from Bangkok Bank, Kasikorn Bank, or Siam Commercial Bank (SCB).
You do not need an account at the bank to purchase a bank draft.
Kasikorn Bank calls a “bank draft” a “Bill of Exchange.”
Purchased in advance.
Made out to “American Embassy Bangkok”
In the exact amount of Thai Baht (THB) for your total service.
At the official embassy exchange rate at the time of the outreach.
Fees and exchange rates will be included in individual outreach announcements and posted on our website.

2nd/3rd problems was drafts not being specifically made out to "American Embassy Bangkok" and for the exact amount in baht required.

Move to Nong Khai. They don't accept silly Embassy affidavits. It's like a special "Laws-Don't-Apply-Here" zone. I think the Tourism Authority of Nong Khai should begin a campaign to attract tourism: Our filthy farang visitors are WAY better than Udon and Loei's filthy farang visitors.

And we can prove it!

Amazing Thailand.
