Re: Advise requirements needed for oa visa

You can't get an OA visa within Thailand, only in your home country, but you also need to get criminal record and health checks. To convert a single entry tourist visa to a non-o in Hua Hin, before the last 15 day days remaining (sooner is better) you need to go to immigration with 2 copies of these...

Re: Clean Hua Hin's Beaches Movement

For me Trash Hero is tackling the problem from the wrong end. Deal with the problem at it's root not at it's result. You will clean your little patch of sand for 100 years and the next day it will be just as bad as the cause is not addressed. I agree with this. Let the beach fill up with trash and ...

Re: Aspirin availability

A possible alternative to aspirin for its anti-inflammatory properties is Turmeric which can be easily bought in capsules. There are limitations with its bioavailability - needs to be taken at the same time as food with fat content and black pepper can increase the effect.

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

What do you mean "in some way". Do a simple search on google and educate yourself on when the funeral will take place. This will be one of the biggest and most important event for the Thai population so expect heavy restrictions.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

You will be better asking in the other popular forum which cannot be mentioned but I think an option will be to go to Laos to get a new non o based on marriage and then reapply for a new retirement extension.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

You can only get your UK marriage certificate legalised in the UK now. The details are here https://www.gov.uk/get-document-legalised This has to be done before it is Thai legalised. I did this part in the Thai embassy in London. Sorry, don't know if or where it can be done in Thailand. http://thaie...

He's even tried cigarettes, but even they don't give him the right buzz anymore. We've been to top flo...

Re: Police corruption

Just try and forget about it. They were obviously after a bribe but you did the correct things and scared them off when you mentioned the lawyer. If you really did want to pursue it there is an anti corruption hotline but as they released you without charges and you are only here a few weeks I don't...

Re: HELP - VISA HELP NEEDED!!!!!!

Yes, you can convert a tourist visa to non O (if you have at least 21 days left, I think). Not all offices do it so you might have to go to Bangkok. I would avoid to agent route imo. I've read that this can cause problems in the future when you want to renew the visa and you could be stuck using an ...
