Sorry, forgot to mention.  You'll need your passport of course.

A tad early, but has anybody heard of  a hotel/restaurant doing a Christmas dinner this year?  (except the Pullman, I'm a poor farang this year)

Open discussion / Change of ATM card
« on: November 20, 2018, 06:11:32 PM »
When I used my Kasikorn Thai ATM card  a couple of days ago I  received a message on the ATM screen that said all cards with 4 digit PIN numbers must be changed for the new chip 'n' pin 6 digit PIN  by 31st December.  So today  my good lady wife and I went to Tesco/Lotus on Mittrapharp to go to my bank.  First surprise, Lotus have introduced a parking scheme.  You get a card on entry which you give back when you leave.  First 3 hours parking is free.  They were so slow handing out the cards that on a quiet morning well before lunch there was a queue back out onto Mittrapharp.  That'll be fun the next weekend when everybody's been paid.  There was also a bemused queue jockeying for position to hand back your card when you left. 

Kasikorn bank was busy.  It must be all those small businesses on site. When we got to the customer service desk it took about 15 minutes per card to get the new one. At a cost.  I did have to have a cheaper ATM card because at my age they will not insure me.  And we have three accounts.  6 or 7 sheets of A4 per card, with multiple signatures.  Both sets of signatures for a joint account.  Then the girls serving us has to get a counter-signature from the  girl next to her.  Paperless office?  I should cocoa. The only good news was that they could do your new card even if the account was held at another branch, which one of ours was.  A member of staff followed us outside and showed us how to change the PIN from that provided on the security paper provided with the new card to the PIN we wanted.  My wife and I had sorted the three new PINs out beforehand.
My passbooks were also updated but just gave a total of all debits and credits, no individual items. 

So if you only use your card infrequently you must change it before the end of the year.

Paul, will that be your last delivery before Christmas?

And banks then wonder why companies like Transferwise have such inroads into their lucrative international transfers business.

Visas, et al / Re: Extension renewal
« on: September 05, 2018, 12:27:03 PM »
Wrong form number Rex.  TM30 is the form confirming your address which up to very recently has not been enforced in Khon Kaen.  The 90 day form is TM47.

I did my retirement extension today, Thursday 30th August.  We arrived at 10.15am and the place was empty bar us and we were seen to immediately, I didn't even need to take a number. The extension went without a hitch, but I was surprised she used a conversion rate of baht to the pound of just 41.  After that she spent ages filling in what looked like a complete database entry about me, obviously name, passport number, landing card number, date I last entered the Kingdom, address, phone number, my wife's phone number and  virtually everything that's in my passport plus a photo.  There was also a new form to sign, all in Thai. Then to my surprise she also asked for a copy of my wife's ID card and  then printed out a TM30 form and stapled that into my passport along with the  new 90 day slip and the landing card.
So it looks like the TM30 regulations are being enforced here now.  How strictly I don't know, ie do you re-report when you've been out of the country or even out of the changwat?
A good experience today so 'er indoors is stuck with me for another year.

The Thai expression for registered is "Long tabien".

Open discussion / 3BB plastic payment card
« on: August 22, 2018, 05:35:45 PM »
A couple of months ago we received a card  from 3BB that could be used to pay  our monthly internet bill.  It worked no problem, so last month and this month I paid the bill on the 11th, as stated on the card.But this month, 10 days after paying, we received a bill, as we used to. We happened to be going to Central yesterday so we popped into their office there and asked what did they want us to do, pay on the 11th with the card, or wait for the bill.  Wait for the bill they said. 
So what was the point of sending out all those cards?

I suspect that each branch makes their own rules up as they go along. I've never had a problemwith Kasikorn Thai Bank, back to even when they were the Thai Farmers Bank.  I have an accountat the Nah Muang Branch in town which I use just to pay standing orders for our water and electricity,
and another Kasikorn  one at Tesco/Lotus next to the new conference centre on Mittrapharp.
But I suggest you just keep trying.  Perhaps the next one with just say, "No problem, sign here".

Rex, for me it happens twice.  Once as you enter the site, and once after you have input your username/password.  After that the session is OK.    And thank heavens it's not just me!

Thank you Rex.  I am fairly sure I don't have malware  as i have just run full scans by Avast, Malwarebytes and Adwarecleaner, none of which found anything untoward.
