Re: Smart driver's licences launched

I just got a new driver's licence this week - it does indeed have a QR code on the back. It is also valid for 6 years instead of the 5 I was expecting.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

All the early announcements and reports that I saw, said they would do tourist visa extensions. The sign that they put up - right at the beginning as far as I know, also said that.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Glad you don't have to go too far. However, please lets not get too precious about it. Originally the BluPort office on first opening did not issue extensions. I asked specifically whether they did, and the answer was 'no'. Now that was two and a half months ago. In the meantime it looks like they ...

I could not get past first screen for 90 day reporting. Am using Google Chome. Still have to use Internet Explorer?
As far as I'm aware yes. When I tried it and got as far as I could without actually submitting it, I was using IE11.

Re: New immigration form (TM6) goes into effect in October

I'm sure the TM 6 was never a requirement for Thais but then again the TM6 cannot be the cause of the delays. Thais fill out the departure section of the TM6 card to leave Thailand they don't need to fill out the TM6 card on arrival. They did up until last year, as far as I'm aware. My wife has alw...

Re: Immigration to introduce 90 day reporting online

90-day online reporting is apparently working again, according to reports I've seen of people using it. The website seems to have been re-designed (again) including an English language option and I was able to get to the online 90-day reporting form and start filling it in. I couldn't submit it as I...

Re: 90 day reporting

Just need your passport and filled in form - assuming that's necessary where you'll report. Some offices now just do computerised slips. No need for money, photos or copies of anything. The Immigration Office in the Blúport Mall in Hua Hin is 'paperless' now for 90-day reporting. Just go in with yo...

Re: New immigration form (TM6) goes into effect in October

Seems they're going to scrap the TM6 forms - for Thai nationals only. According to newspaper reports:
Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda said [...] there was talk of scrapping the form entirely but the Tourism Ministry lobbied for its retention for non-Thais.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

It is moving almost stationary :roll: I'm not sure how or from where they get the English language version on the website, but the original Thai language announcement simply says "the storm is slowly moving." Other versions of the announcement issued at different times say the storm is almost stati...

Re: Tourist crackdown: tourist visa holders being asked to show 20,000 baht in cash entering Thailand

I read an article, it may have been on the forum. It was about TAT not being so interested in numbers but who the visitors are. Aussies were favored--they come for short periods, mostly well inside the 30-day limit and they spend over 5000b/person /day. If it was the same article I read (and it sou...

Re: Fibre Optic router for 3BB

When I had a 3BB ADSL subscription I used my own router with it, by copying the settings from the 3BB router. I dare say you could do the same with a fibre optic router. Alternatively, you could try a different service provider. The router currently provided with a True fibre optic subscription is a...

that was a yr. ago, I just checked and there aren't any now. why is there an airport here?
It's used by private planes, and the military also uses it. For instance, when they're conducting parachute training, their planes sometimes (perhaps always?) take off from there.

Re: West Bromwich Albion u16 @ True Arena Hua Hin

However at the game last night, I was told the WBA team won't be playing any more games in Hua Hin. So if there are more games in this 'tournament' they apparently won't involve West Brom.

Re: Vana Nava Hua Hin City 2017

I agree with your comment BB,however how can the referee allow our goalkeeper to stand 30 cm. in front of the player who should put the ball on the spot to take the penalty ,not important in this game ,but if it was standing 0-0 ,I think he should have a yellow card,after a warning first :cheers: :...
