There used to be a place near Central. Don't turn left into Central but go down that small road which eventually reaches Central.
Alternatively, has good reviews

If they had of asked me I would have told them that I know where Kajornsak was. He was down at Kiang Supermarket hiding behind his mother drinking all the bloody wine and he left none for me.

lol, so you did go down. I hope you told them to order some more.

Regarding the 5 baht a page photocopying. This is more than any other government office. I say let's expose them for racial discrimination. I'm serious, it disgusting.

Getting to and from Khon Kaen / Re: Parking Changes at Khon Kaen Airport
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:49:49 AM »
Im in KK soon and was wanting a update to the Airport parking as i will be leaving my car in there when i use the Airport for flights. Is the 180 baht for 24hrs as i read elsewere its 180 for 12hrs. Can you leave your car over night and pay by the day when you return to your car. Is there 24hr security at the airport car park. any info will be great .

I've left my car there for a few days recently. 24 hours open. I thought it was 150 baht a day.

The one on Lao Nadi road is where you go to get tax refunds.

Would be interesting to know if the OP had any success. It good netiquette to thank people for their suggestions too.

Walk in with a bag of fruit and say something funny in the Isarn dialect. Never had to pay the fine.

My mother buys it sometimes from Kiang Supermarket and Sri Jan Road. However, last month they didn't have any. They'd be your best bet though.

I always keep the blue book in the car. Who's going to steal it?

As for the DL, the original must be carried, by law. The whole point is that the police can keep it.

Police stop woman drivers all the time. My advice is for the foreigner to be in the driver's seat.

Silliness!  A mortgage for what, a condo? As I think about it, that might actually be a real benefit for some falang who might like to own a condo but can't pay cash.

As to the TM30, presumably as the owner, you would have to fill out a TM30 to report that a foreigner was staying in your home!  And also a TM28 to report that you, a foreigner, have traveled away form home.   roll

Although we might (want to) assume that PR would relieve you of the TM30-TM28 obligation, I have not see it explicitly so stated anywhere.

Yes, it's ridiculous!!!

The last thing we want is people voluntarily giving this information, giving immigration ideas to screw even more money out  of foreigners.

A former Finance Minister, Korn Chatikavanij, sent a team to investigate a tip box there.

On his Thai facebook site, there were many disgusted comments. Any govt. office is no place for a tip box.

How any stupid foreigner could give a tip is beyond my comprehension.

Even now, they charge 5 baht for a photocopy.

Pretty impossible for most of us.
No job, no work permit and no record of tax payments.

Most of us?

If you're retired, it's still possible but harder.

This is the first time I have head any first-hand evidence that citizenship was nearly impossible.

Actually, I'm saying contrary -  it's quite simple - not what many seem to think, it's what they say in Thai, riap ngai dtae yaak  เรียบง่ายแต่ยาก[/size][size=78%].[/size]

Rex -  a brief reply to your questions.

Personally, I believe PR to be a waste of time and money these days. There are very few benefits, and still need to report to the police every 5 years, still need a re-entry permit, work permit etc. Can't own land, vote, work in many jobs etc. Never heard of it being revoked. Thais don't need a re-entry permit.

Citizenship is a much better AND easier, if married to a Thai, and a hell of a lot cheaper, only 5,000 baht. There are many foreigners who get it - seems to be a barstool myth that it's nearly impossible to get.

I applied for citizenship last month. I've already had the National Intelligence Agency interview. The next step is an interview with the Ministry of the Interior. I know someone who got citizenship a couple of months ago, it took him 2 years and 1 month -  the names are printed in the Royal Gazette.

I think mine might take longer, but who knows, I'll keep you posted. Under the present government, things like this are going much faster.

One must get 50/100 points to qualify. These are awarded for length of stay in Thailand, qualifications, salary, knowledge of Thailand and Thai language, age. I met one guy at the interview who couldn't speak Thai. In the past one needed to pass the Prathom 6 exam but now, not essential. Singing the national anthem เพลงชาติ and the royal anthem เพลงสรรเสริญพระบารมี are NOT required anymore.The Special Branch officer in Khon Kaen said it was but he has never done the process before, told me I am the guinea pig!!

Total rip-off. Even have to continue with the 90 day reporting!!!!!!!!!

If possible, the best  thing is to get Permanent Residency or Citizenship, which is actually pretty simple these days.

Ignore it. Don't go asking immigration questions about it too.
