Visas, et al / Full day notary services, US Embassy, Bangkok, 20 Dec 18
« on: December 14, 2018, 07:08:00 PM »
In case you have been living under a rock, 31 Dec 2018 will be the last opportunity you have to obtain an income affidavit from the U.S. Embassy (as well as from embassies of some other countries).  The U.S. Embassy, Bangkok is setting aside an entire day to obtain income affidavits. Do your own math, but as you can apply for your extension 45 days early, if you obtain an affidavit now, you can probably use it if your  extension expires before 1 Aug 2019

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok is pleased to offer a full-day of notarial services.

Date:  December 20, 2018.
Time:  0730-1400
Place: US Embassy Bangkok 95 Wireless Road, Bangkok

There will be approximately 400 notarial appointments available. All services will be provided by appointment only.  Please visit us here to make an appointment. 

Fees for notary services are $50.00 USD or 1700 Thai Baht per notarial stamp.

To expedite your service, please bring exact change or consider paying by credit card to facilitate the movement of people through their appointments.

Please arrive with your passport, a copy of your passport and documents filled-out completely, correctly, and NOT signed. Documents can be accessed through these links =>

Internet restored a little while ago.  As promised, AIS sent me an SMS advising the service was back.

My AIS fiber went down about an hour ago.  I called the service center expecting to have a typically witless conversation with them.  However, a robo voice came on and identified my account number and said internet down due to a problem with the telephone exchange and estimated service would be restored around 20:30 this evening.  Or something to that effect.

Just having reassurance that AIS is aware of the problem and that it is not something on my end takes the uncertainty out of it and lets me deal with the problem more rationally.

Pretty cool!

Aren't two-wheel bicycles cheaper as they only have two wheels?

Tks for this Martin.  Important information although it probably raises more questions than it answers.

One question.  How did the Imm officer know to remind you about the TM30?  Because she and your wife talk and she knew you had been out of the country?

They didn't ask for the TM30, but were quite attentive to it.  It was a little bit complicated.  Fon was with me and took care of the TM30 for me.  My landlord lives out of town, and in order to spare him the chore of going to Imm, Fon had to obtain power of attorney in order to file on his behalf. Not as big a deal as it sounds, but still one more chore on top of a chore that makes no sense and accomplishes nothing.

No, I didn't.  I figure that probably everyone is asking them and that they are probably tired of the question.  The answer will emerge in due course over the next several weeks,  but I reckon it will be a process of getting the entire story straight rather than one final announcement that makes everything crystal clear.

Did my retirement extension yesterday.  Arrived at 8:27 am, got number 4. Walked out the door with extension in hand at 9:15. We had all the paperwork in order including--for the first time in 15 years--the TM30.  Everything was in order and all was pleasant.  The only reason it took 45 minutes was that the printer ran out of toner, and it took quite a bit of futzing around to install a new cartridge until the BIG BOSS came to the rescue and sorted it.

No discussion about any new procedures for documenting income.

Have had two dealings with Mr. Roj, both very satisfying.  First, he replaced the faucet in a bathroom basin.  Only took 20 min, and the fee was minimal.  Today, he looked at our pump for the water tank which has been periodically switching on for no reason.  Apparently, a part of the pump mechanism will eventually have to be replaced.  The estimate he gave us for new part was less than what we paid last time it was replaced.  We were grateful for the information and he didn't want to take B100 for his trouble. 

Good guy.  Apparently can do most handy-man type maintenance.

Mr. Roj,
Sawaroj Sirichan
