Visa Docs - Criminal Record - How Clean?

Recommended Posts

Bangkok Immigration is at Jaengwattana now - almost in Nonthaburi. It's in a huge new building in a sprawling government compound, part of Thaksin's Hitler-like "improvements" to his capital city. (There is a shopping centre in the basement - naturally - with bank branches if you need them.)

 

The NZ Thai Embassy says the following

 

(15) One Stop Service Center for Visas and Work Permits

A One Stop Service Center for visas and work permits visas extensions re-entry permits and work permits is located at

 

207 Rachadapisek Road,

Krisda Plaza,

Dindaeng,

Bangkok 10310,

Tel 662-693-9333-9,

Fax. 662-693-9340

 

 

Any idea anyone, if this is still the case?

Look out the window in Nongkhai and you can probably see Laos. Used to be fun taking the boat across the Mekong, but now you just drive across a bridge. Bet the Mekong is high right now!

Arrived in VT today, hot as hot, a shower, and the Mekong appears to be only half full.

You cannot convert to a Retirement Visa until your allotted time has almost expired.

I tires to do this.

 

I had the non-Immi 0ne year visa (O-A), entered LOS 01 May 2011, I could stay in LOS for 90 days. After being in LOS for 60 days I went to the Immi office with all the copies and paperwork and asked to convert to the Retirement Visa, they said "no" must wait to like one week before my 90 days was up.

 

Did what they said and I was given the "O" visa in 15 minutes! but had to wait about 1 hour to get the multi-entry stamp and then another hour to get the "I am a reside" letter, which they mailed to me in three weeks. With the resident letter, costs 100 Baht for the mailing otherwise free, you can buy/own a car/motorbike. You must specify car, bike or both (I specified both, why not?).

 

A one year OA visa gives you 1 year from the date of entry.
