  1. Yes, but the one quoted in the article is behind the one you are talking about.
  2. DO NOT get a STV. I had one and it was a huge pain in the rear to get. At the time, it was the only viable option there was. As the others in this thread have said, you cannot change to a non-O and then get the retirement 1 year extension.
  3. ubonjoe is correct in regards to Jomtien Immigration anyway. They did ask for a TM 30 for where I was staying (my house). I didn't have one, so I paid a fine, filled out a TM30 and all was good. Extension granted.
  4. Ok, I was not implying that a person cannot do so. I was simply stating what was stamped in my passport.

As soon as I landed in Suvarnaphumbi, my first task was to cancel the booking and get a refund which went through with no problems. I have a condo in Bangkok and tried to use it as a residence for after I left quarantine but the Embassy insisted on me submitting my landlord's Tax ID number. My landlord refused to provide it and I don't blame him one bit. That is why I chose the Agoda route. Ques

  9. As far as I know, natural causes have nothing to do with it. If a Farang dies outside a hospital, their body is automatically sent to the police hospital in Bangkok for an autopsy. That occurred with two of my friends who passed on.
