Have any of the Brits out there had any experience with Key Visa Company or Thai Visa Express ?Or any other company offering Passport Renewal services.I'm considering their use as I'm getting too long in the tooth for trips to Grung Thep.Pity the Brits do not have the outreach program that the Americans have.Darren has influential friends. I've got  4 renewals from him in the l...
Re: Faded ATM receipts !!!
by russell17au | July 20, 2019, 09:24:15 PM
Rex, these things and the electricity and water receipts are printed with a thermal printer and not an ink printer and there is no way that I know of that will stop them from fading until you end up with a blank piece of paper. Maybe the only way is to keep them cool because the paper is treated to show the writing when the heat is applied and then if they get warm or hot the printing will disappe...
Wire transfers from Kasikorn Mobile to Bank of America U.S.
by admin | July 18, 2019, 07:34:47 PM
I think I posted some of this previously, but here is a little update:1. It's true! You can make intl wire transfers out of Thailand using the Kasikorn mobile app. Quite high limites and (relatively) cheap at around B400.2. They were offering free transfers up until the 15 July. Unfortunately, due to a stupid goof on my part, I only got to take advantage of this one time this month.3. CAUTION...
Re: Change to Deposit Procedure to Bangkok Bank New York

Rex, to which transfer was the receipt tied.  The way you have written it, looks like the first Jul 15 transfer arrived first even before your 11 Jul transfer receipt which has not happened as of yet.  See below you message in big print.That is correct, Frank.  The one on 15 Jul for $850 arrived first.  The other two have not arrived yet.  ...

Thanks, I'm so careful about what I open, I wouldn't open a birthday greeting from my cousin on my birthday. Something just didn't look right....

Does anyone know if these items are  arriving or lost?  Is it just the tracking that is screwed up, or are they never delivered?...

BOOOPA--I guess one of the most commonly used by falang--doesn't make it easier by describing benefit payout per day rather than total coverage as was specified in the Imm announcements.  ...
Re: Have you used DeeMoney? Know anyone who has?
by kowpot | July 09, 2019, 09:27:46 AM
Dee Money is controlled by the Bank of Thailand. I suspect, with no proof. Just my suspicion that the BOT is holding these funds on purpose. I think they are afraid there may be a run on the banks with Farangs sending their money out of the country.   Like I said, Just my suspicion.  But, to me. It just doesn't make sense that only these countries are involved. Three major currencie...
Re: Bangkok Bank Withholding Tax
by russell17au | July 05, 2019, 03:56:58 PM
On a bit of a different issue. I went and updated my Bangkok Bank passbook at the machine at Central Plaza and it overwrote my existing banking details and I went in and saw them inside the bank and all they would do was to give me a printout of the transactions on a plain piece of paper. Would this be accepted by Immigration with anyone who uses the income system for their visa extensions. Be war...
