      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    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.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. There is a small risk but you should be OK. Stating the obvious you should plan a little more carefully next time to avoid such issues.
  2. The approval is from Canberra rather than Bangkok. I don't know why I wrote Bangkok but I have changed it.
  3. Actually you don't have to ask nicely at all. All you need to do is meet the criteria and have the correct documents. If you do you will have no issues although they need to get the approval of the embassy in Canberra before one is issued. They are efficient but very particular about the documentation that is required for all visas.
  4. It is a risk and the other risk is that the airline will not let you board on the outward flight. The risk is small but it does exist.
  5. I think your best option is to get a visa before you leave home. Your holiday should then be hassle free. Incidentally what you call a '30 day visa' is not a visa. It is only permission to stay for 30 days.
  6. I think it might be the same as in Australia. They have restricted which consulates can issue the one year multiple entry visas. I suggest you contact the embassy in London and ask about the one year visa. Each stay will only be 90 days.
  7. Also if she tried to enter the UK with a different visa I would be concerned that they would refuse entry on the basis of what ever reason they applied the 10 year ban.
  8. I suspect getting a water-tight one that will stand up in the west is very difficult to do with a TG. If it is anything other than in Thai any dumb-shit lawyer will be able to get deemed void due to her not understanding what she signed.
  9. Since the UK and Ireland have an agreement on tourist visas they may share information. They may be on the lookout for people trying to abuse the system, as your friend is contemplating. He would need to find if the 10 year ban is real and if it is why it was applied. If it was for something like fraud then he might be throwing his money away by reapplying without having the ban removed first.
  10. From my experience most of them are mostly interested in lining their own pockets. They tend to direct people to schemes that will earn them money through fees and commissions. My advice is to find an independent advisor who charges on a fee per service fee basis and use low cost strategies. If you are going to use managed funds companies like Vanguard Investments and Dimensional Fund Advisors are a good way to go (I don't know if they operate in Ireland). Plan to be a self-funded retiree as there may be no money in the government's kitty by the time you get their.
  11. Yes, but this is about an Australian application. Australia is not as backward as the US.
  12. Translations for most documents are not required for Australian applications lodged in Bangkok. We translated only 3 or 4 documents and just submitted others with no translations done. The Australian embassy uses Thais to help process the applications so they don't need all documents translated.
  13. Actually coming to think of it for a PMV what she does for work is not important as she does not need to provide a reason why she will leave Australia. She could just say that she is unemployed and being supported by you, if that is what you are doing.
  14. You can apply for a tourist visa while a PMV application is being processed. I don't believe that they give Thais stays of any longer than 3 months. Given that she has been in Australia before they may issue her a one year multiple entry visa. She can not be in Australia when the visa is issued if the application is lodged outside of the country. If she is in the country when you expect the result to be known let the embassy know. They will advise her to leave the country for the visa to be issued. Our application was approved in late December and it took 8 and a half months for them to process it. It was a PR visa rather than a PMV but I think the processing times are the same.
