  1. Well! I have also used them many many times over a number of years. What a shame, also found them great to deal with?
  2. Thanks for that Jacko.. I think I may well get a 60 day visa, then go to the Immigration office in Jomtien, to apply for the 30 day renewal. I will book a hotel for a few days ..about a week or so before the visa expires...then go to the Jomtien office! Im sure, back in the 80s, when I used to spend most of the winters in Thailand...I used to get a double entry 90 day visa...which Im sure just meant you had to leave after 90 days, go to a land crossing (I was in Samui..so I went to Malaysia).... Ah the good old days!
  3. I will be in Thailand for a total of 82 days...so I "assume" the 0-Visa should be fine? I went onto the thai-visa forum...Im not so "worried"! now...it looks like, I can look into the option of a non imm O-visa for 90 days...failing that, get a 60 day visa, then apply for a 30 day extension in Jomtien (I could book an hotel for the time I actually make the application?...........seeing as it may well be "easier" with the T 30 forms etc? or! failing that......just do a days visa run to cambodia!? For whatever reason! I "thought"! that if one was to do a "land crossing"..that only a week or two weeks would be added ..apparently its 30 days........so problem solved! hopefully! Apparently though, only 2 land crossings are permitted each year....which is all Id need.......Ideally though, a trip to the immigration office in Jomtien is the preferred option! A days trip on the minibus to Cambodia, is ? OK! Though a trip to the immigration office is more comfortable!
  4. Many thanks for that. Hmmn! When I got my 60 day visa, from the Cardiff offive in January...they told me the longest visa I could get was 60 days........Ive just looked on their website....it appears you can now get a 90 day one?! I will have to phone them tomorrow!
  5. i was thinking....if its going to be a "pain" to get a 30 day extension...to just get a cheap flight to ..say....Malaysia. Laos, etc..stay there a day or two, then come back and get a 30 day visa on arrival in BKK? A bit of a faff..I know!
  6. I will be staying in a house? Would that make any difference as opposed to a hotel, do you know? As for the forms (TM7 and TM6) I assume they can be had from the immigration office ? I will bring some passport photos with me form the U.K.! The last time I stayed over 60 days was back in the 80s! Back then, it was possible to get a 90 day "double entry", visa from the U.K. Back then, I used to spend the winter in Koh Samui.........to use the visa, I just used to travel down to the Thai/Malaysian border...walk through into Malaysia and then walk back into Thailand! I wish it was still that easy! Thanks very much for the information. Im "sure" Ive read somewhere...its best to get to the immigration office "early" in the morning?
  7. Good afternoon all....... Im going to Pattaya for 80 odd days in September this year. I will get a 60 day visa in the U.K. I understand , you can go to immigration in Jomtien, Soi 5? to get another 30 days extension? My question is! WHEN! can I apply for the 30 day extension? I mean anytime? or after 30 days? 40 days ? etc etc.( I mean of course! after 30 days or 40 days or whatever when Im in Thailand!) Thanks in anticipation.
  8. Thanks for that. Its the Cardiff office I use as it goes! I "usually", go for 4 weeks, so the free 30 day visa is what I nornally get. Ive gone for 6 weeks or more a few times over the last few years though...sure it was £25 then?! From this winter time..I plan on getting a 60 day visa, then either getting a 30 day extension in Pattaya, or else just flying somewhere nearby..then getting another 30 day visa on arrival? I will be spending about 3 months at a time in Thailand from next Winter...so I figured that would be the easiest way to do it?
  9. "Slightly"! on topic...I just phoned the local Thai Consulate, in the U.K. To book my 60 day visa for later this month...Im "sure"! it used to be £25? I was told today it is now £40? Seem to be more difficult and more expensive to get visas now? Later this year, I will finish work..I then intend to get a 60 day visa , and extend that for another 30 days in Patts....seems like its getting to be a pain to do it now though?!
  10. it would be great for people living "oop North"...but I though Thai was losing millions?
  11. Sounds like a great price! Ive never flown with Lufthansa, heard lots of good things about them though. I fly from Heathrow..so its about 3 hours by trains to get there....Dont drive there as parking is expensive! Seems like a great option for those who live in the north-west.
  12. yes Thai still use 3-3-3 on their 777. I flew it out to Bkk in september, Depending on the time of the year though, thai use the A380 on their mid-day flight out of Heathrow.
  13. In January, I will be getting internet for my house in Pattaya, Any recomendations as to which provider offers the best deal? I live over on the darkside if that makes any difference! Also, what do you guys use for tv? I mean! Do you get I.P.T.V or similar? Any info will be gratefully recevied,. P.M. s are fine too! Thanks in advance!
  14. I also much prefer T.3 to T.2 Alas though! Thai use T.2. so I have to put up with it!
