In Oz the consulates are the only ones that will issue a Visa. The Embassy in Canberra will not issue a Visa - besides who wants to travel to Canberra. I got a Non-Imm O Visa about 2 years ago and it was very easy. I went to the Thai Consulate in Brisbane with my Passport and a letter from my super fund stipulating my invested funds, thus verifying that I had funds available to support myself for 12 months. I said I wanted to holiday in Thai for 12 months and needed a 12 month, multi entry Visa. 10 minutes and $225 later I had my Visa. I have heard from other people that Melbourne will only give a Visa for 6 months - not sure why. The only downside is that you have to leave the country (usually a bus trip to the Cambodian border) every 3 months. I got sick of this and converted to a Retirement extension after 6 months.
In the Stickman Weekly Column this week there was an interesting article about buying Condo's in Thailand (link beliow) http://www.stickmanweekly.com/StickMarkII/...doInBangkok.htm Worth a read for anybody contemplating the property market in Thailand. My observations over the last 4 months indicate that after the next high season which is forecast to be by far the worst on record due to well publicised reasons there will be a condo glut and thereal prices will plummet. But who knows - TIT.
