    Ken,

    How is Mahasarakham treating you?

    I worked there for a year whilst living in Kalasin and loved it.

    Brick wall

    Another thing to consider would be inflation, at present the UK is about 2% Thailand is nearer 4% normally that would cancel out by the Ex rate dropping but it hasn't happened at all so even if your income goes up with UK inflation your spending power would still decrease. Is his making any sense? Also for me, my forces pension is increasing by a massive 1% this coming year, (I'll try not to spend it all at once). Thai inflation 4% I fall further behind each year.

    Wonderful. Check out Scott's bar in Kalasin (if you haven't already) plus a great Som Tum restaurant just opened run by a great French lad and his wife.

    Glad you enjoy it there. Great people, a world away from the bunch I encountered in places such as Pattaya and Chonburi.

    If you want to extend a single entry non-O, you'll need to do one of two things ....

    1. About 1 month before your non-O expires, send your previous 3 months UK bank statements (with the equivalent of 40,000 baht per month or more being paid in) to the British Embassy to get a "proof of income" letter from them.

    2. ... or, open a Thai bank account in your sole name as soon as you land in Thailand and immediately transfer 400,000 baht into it. Shortly before your 90 days is up, you'll then need to get a certified and signed statement from the bank on the same morning you apply for your extension.

    I like option 2 best!

    What paperwork is required for a 90 day single entry Non-immigrant "O" visa apart form the application form?

    Regards Tim

    I did mine by post via the embassy in London a year ago. I think you may also need a passport size photo, the fee (paid by a postal order) and a stamped addressed envelope for the return of your passport.

    My wife is here on a 29 month spouse visa which expires in December this year, if we decided to return to the UK after it has expired, will she have to start that whole process from BKK VFS again? I.e 29 month spouse visa or can she apply for the next visa which is Indefinate Right to Remain?

    Can I go to London and open a Thai bank account? For transferring funds before September should the rate go above 50thb to the £?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Regards Nitro (Tim & Kan)

    What work will you do?
    Or Re you just going to retire and live of your pension?
