      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is not down - just running very slowly due to the task of reindexing the millions of posts in the database due to an upgrade of the server software. Unfortunately it is difficult to predict how long this will take to complete so all BM's are implored to be patient. You can all help to speed this process by refraining from posting pointless stuff and please avoid uploading photos till it is finished.    Sometimes users are experiencing very slow page reads or error pages and this is caused by server load.    Please note that many of the old features are not available atm but this because they cannot be reinstated until the reindex is complete - so don't be too concerned about missing bits as yet. However .... please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.   Current Progress as of 8pm Bangkok time 20 March 2017     Current Progress as of 2:30pm Bangkok time 21 March 2017     Current Progress as of 1:00pm Bangkok time 22 March 2017     Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. I stopped to the visa shop mentioned above. They claim they can still provide service for an extension. 4,000 all in. I'll pop in another day to see if if get the same answer.
  2. I'm confused, 1400 for an LK property seems about right. 750 is pretty low end especially at peak season. Sandy Spring is showing availablity Try China Garden. If the new place is open, they may have availability.
  3. The TT exchange at this location has lock boxes. It's map is too old to show it. But if you stroll by here you'll see it. https://goo.gl/maps/56sWeS58sGJ2
  4. I don't recall seeing a visa shop in that spot. Guess I'll pay more attention next time.
  5. What was the name of the agent who was on Lk? He advertised on here for a while.
  6. Last time I used the paid invoice for the hotel. Seemed to work fine. I ran into a problem at Surin though. My hotel was in Burriram. They said I needed an address in Surin. I checked into a local hotel for the night and used that address the next day. You're right guys I'm probably making more of this then I need to. I'll look for the Visa service next door. Last year they were using the number system at Jomtien,, but they just had a bucket of numbers. it wasn't in any sequential order. I got #173, the next guy got #2. It was a cluster from beginning to end.
  7. I suspect it's luck of the draw on being busy or not. Last year I spent most of the day at Jomtien. The year before I spent all day at Surin. I guess I just need to suck it up along with a thousand other guys. Back to the original questions. What is that third form we need ?
  8. Oh ya forgot about the camera. Guess I'll just bring a book and lunch.
  9. Well, being the person I am, I like to fill them out and print them before I leave home. Striderman, do you know if it's possible to have the paperwork carried in for me?
  10. Last year I went to Jomtien for my 30 day extension with a 60 day tourist visa stamp. I had the TM7 & Photo. Got it checked by one of the guys at the copy shop. Got in side and was promptly turned back to fill out an additional form. I can't remember what that additional form was. What should I have with me when I go this year? Also, is it possible to have one of the copy shop guys carry my application in for me. (for a fee) Last time I spent half the day inside, standing room only. Elbow to elbow with a bunch of surly, sweaty guys. There must be a better way.
  11. I recall somebody posting this was a problem. Couldn't remember who. Could have been AJ. I sent an email to the Consulate straight away. Have not gotten a response. I doubt I will. It's not likely the same guys who put it there are going to admit it was a mistake. The brain trust on Thaivisa think it shouldn't be a problem. But I'll try to get confirmation from the Consulate.
  12. I just got my passport back from the Chicago Consulate, They put my Visa stamp on an Endorsement page not on a Visa page. Am I going to have problems when I enter through Bangkok?
  13. Sandy spring would be an excellent choice. https://goo.gl/Aswnwq
