      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. Do they kiss on your first date?
  2. I haven't had the Buffet for many years but at that time they fried the eggs specially for you.
  3. I went this morning for my Retirement Visa and did not have to wait. A lady outside the desk with the three assistants, checked my documents; decided i needed a copy of another page from my passport (pages 1 and 2) and did it on the spot. No asking me to go and get a copy. Did not ask me for my Lease Document which i had with me but asked for 'proof of address' and i had a receipt from 3BB which i handed over and everything Ok. She then handed me two forms and a pen and i started to fill in my name etc and she said no need, just sign the two forms, Evidently they were forms setting out penalties for overstay and you sign to understand and agree to them. Got a number and told to pick up passport tomorrow after 10.00am, Was in and out in 10 minutes although the place was busy. Will get a Re-entry permit tomorrow and in the past have always had to get a copy of the new Visa page to add to the others as i always understood that as well as Form TM8 you always need copies of your passport. I think this is requires at Jomtien but perhaps not in Bangkok if you can do both at one go
  4. For the Re-entry Visa do you just need the Form TM 8 and copy of passport. And once you get your Passport back (usually next day) you have to go and get a copy of the new 'Retirement Visa' page and then go and get the Re-entry. Did i read somewhere that someone said he got the Retirement Visa and the Re-entry Visa together. I don't see how this is possible.
  5. See Post #40. 46 baht/£ and the cost still £52. And the money was taken without them requiring the 3 password numbers on the back of the card.. To be clear you do not pay the Embassy the £52 but you authorise them to take whatever the current fee (depending on the exchange rate) is at the time they deal with your application But that is not to say Immigration will use that rate when they check to see if your income in £s is more than 65,000 Baht per month.
  6. I sent off (Express) my details of Pension to British Embassy on 31st Jan, letter was signed 2nd Feb and I got it back today Sunday 5th Feb. Well done the Embassy.
  7. I did my 90 day Report a week ago at Jomtien and just handed over my passport as usual. In and out in one minute. Online reporting is off-line just now.
  8. Can we assume that these were people with Retirement Visas or marriage visas? Ie staying more or less permanently in Thailand.
  9. And you can barely see the '5' amongst all the other signs
  10. This is a recent photo posted by another BM still showing the sign as "Pattaya Immigration."
  11. I can "View Statement" (give the dates) without having to get a TOP number. I only need to use it as Confirmation when i transfer money to a poor Thai girl. I checked just now in case there had been a change.
  12. I use KTB and noticed the requirement to put in a TOP which i get on my Mobile to confirm the transaction. I did not have to do any special registering of my mobile.
