Newbie Q & A Getting settled in KKC / Re: Residence Certificate
« on: March 05, 2019, 09:49:39 PM »
I asked at the Amphur office about 9 months ago when we bought the house about a yellow house book and I was told that I needed a residence certificate. With the change that Windy listed I will have to go and find out if I need a letter from the Amphur office to give to immigration to get the residence certificate


Rex, I know what it is like with those on ThaiVisa but before you go any further I think that you should check this out. This is a link to Thai Immigration Bureau and this is the NEW regulations that you are talking about possibly being a hoax. It is the original written in Thai so you will have to get it translated but if you look at page 3 and look at item 4 in the right hand column it is saying about 2 months and 3 months before it says anything about 800,000 and then it mentions 3 months after the 800,000 and then it is saying something about 400,000.

I have that form Frank, But you missed the point when I was asking whether I would have to go to the Amphur office and get a letter to give to immigration requesting a residence certificate. When I got my license I only had to go to immigration and request the certificate but Windy had to go to the Land Transport office first and get a letter for immigration requesting a residence certificate. It looks like what ever we need a residence certificate for now we are going to have to go to whoever we need the certificate for and get a letter off them before we go to immigration for the certificate.

I wonder if I need a letter from the Amphur Office to get the Residence Certificate to be able to get my Yellow Tambien

Sorry Rex but I think that you misunderstood what it was. The wording on the police notice is that the 800,000 must be seasoned for 2 months before the extension application and remain there for 3 months after the application is approved which is a total of 5 months for the 800,000 and then for the remainder of the year the account is not allowed to fall below 400,000 or your next extension application will be denied. Some of the things that I have read claim that the 800,000 must be seasoned as it was in the old regulations which is 2 months before for your first application but then 3 months before for any renewals. So first application is 800,000 for 2 months before plus 3 months after which is 800,000 for 5 months then 400,000 for 6 months then back to 800,000 for the next 6 months then the 400,000 for the next 6 months and it continues like that.

Windy, my suggestion would be for you to enter the bus station from the ring road and go up to the back and go around the shop fronts and come down behind the buses in the first bus parking and go to the end and you should be able to get parking there. The mistake that I made was I turned across the front of Terminal 2 and there was no parking available there but there was empty parking in the next row but you can only access it by going past the turn across the front of the terminal. The big problem is that if you do what I did you cannot reverse back to go down to the next row because you could end up with a bus going over the top of you because it is their exit road.

Rex, I still call them Internet Cafes and there are several out in the area where I live. They are shops that have maybe 8 or 9 computers set up and the young ones go there and pay by the hour to use the computers on the internet and they can print off anything they want.
Henry, there is also a place on the north eastern corner of the old bus station that does photographing that also has the copier and scanner, printer set up

It looks like you are looking for an Internet Cafe if you want to use their computers to access your emails and print off what documents you want.
As it appears that you already have a computer, why not open the documents on your computer and transfer them to a USB stick and then take that to the print shop
As for the scanning take your document and the USB stick to the print shop and have the document scanned onto the USB stick.
Where abouts are you located at?

Thanks Kajornsak but Lazada and Kaidee do not have what we want and most of the other massage bed places we have dealt with are located down in the Bangkok, Chon Buri area. We were look to see if someone who lives in the Northeast had seen any beds suitable for oil massage in their local area buy and sells. There has been a couple listed in the Khon Kaen Buy and Sell on Facebook but they had already been sold.

Has anybody happened to see any massage tables for sale around the Khon Kaen, Udon Thani, Korat, Nong Bua Lamphu, Nong Khai areas? At the moment I am searching for a metal framed bed which is about 175cm x 90cm and about 75cm high which is padded on the top for use as a Thai Oil massage table. All information is much appreciated

It is quite easy Rex, A person could have an income from overseas which he could have 400,000 deposited into his Thai bank account and still have plenty of money to live on. He could work offshore for 6 months and live here with his Thai wife for 6 months. Even being retired I had a good payout when I finished work and I have my 400,000 permanently in the bank and I live on my pension with no problems. Remember we are talking MARRIAGE extensions not retirement

Yes, Henry, we are like old cars and we do have a few quirks that only we know about and know how to operate. Have a Happy New Year

One other thing that I would suggest Henry is to also buy an external drive and keep all your files backed up on it so that if anything does happen with your laptop then you will not lose any of your files and folders and it is just simply copy all your files and folders from the external drive to your laptop

Henry, first off I have 2 laptops here with me, one is a Compaq Preserio which had Windows 7 on it but it was upgraded to Windows 10 back in Australia when Windows 10 was first released as an update and it is about 10 years old and the other is a HP 250 with Windows 10 and it is about 6 years old. Both of these laptops were bought in Australia before I moved to Thailand over 5 years ago, The only problem that I have had with both these laptops has been with the internet connection which was not actually the laptop but the service provider problem, so before you go racing off and buying a new laptop I would suggest that you go to a service centre and have your laptop looked at.
As for your windows disc, I am not sure about that as I cannot remember how many computers you can use that disc and license for. I do not know about here in Thailand but in Australia when I did the upgrade to windows 10 I think it was a license for 2 computers but I am not sure.
Good luck, Henry.
