  1. Yes... and it is in fact what Ubonjoe kept on saying.. Have a nice day
  2. Good morning, Apparently Jomtien immigration told one person who came to enquire for his extension in November, that the insurance condition only applies to new OA visas issued after October 31st and subsequent extensions.. People already here with visas or extensions don t need the insurance I go tomorrow for my 90 days and will check myself and revert Have a nice day
  3. Hello To clarify what I said before I was talking about a sheet of paper some members had put on the forum which they said was in Chiang Mai immigration office.. A friend who went friday afternoon told me this sheet of paper was no more there.. But now, reading one comment I come to know finally this sheet of paper had never been there.. which is conforted by this friend who did not see it friday afternoon.. For the flight from NZ, this other friend was coming back with a one way ticket and when he registered they checked his passport due to the one way ticket only and they asked for the insurance.. He also showed his re entry permit.. and after apparently calling one higher rank person they finally registered him on the flight.. Have a nice sunday
  4. Hello I do think it is important to get things clarified urgently and to obtain that not only local insurances are admitted but also the foreign ones offering same or better coverage than they are asking for.. In Chiang Mai yesterday afternoon the pannel announcing the health insurance policy has been removed.. A friend coming back from Australia with a re entry permit had a lot of difficulties to register on this flight to BGK because he did not have a proof of insurance.. Again as for the other subjects, every one will handle the matter his own way leading to problems for a lot of us Have a nice sunday
  5. Good afternoon, We need 2 painters to come and make quotations to fully repaint our 3 floors condo (20 units) Any recomendation for serious people offering reasonale rate and good quality job would be appreciared Thank you Have a nice weekend
  6. Hello A friend reading and speaking thai sent me this link.. https://www.immigration.go.th/read?content_id=5d9c3b074d8a8f318362a8aa&fbclid=IwAR3223GDWc91tNYr5U1_h6Kn5vfX6LM-_qhMgzWrXFmKv30cf7iqSRrA6uc In this link you will find this part พยาบาลในกรณีผู้ป่วยนอกไม่น้อยกว่า 40,000 บาท กรณีผู้ป่วยในไม่น้อยกว่า 400,000 บาท โดยซื้อกรมธรรม์แบบออนไลน์ผ่าน longstay.tgia.org สำหรับผู้ที่ซื้อประกันสุขภาพของบริษัทต่างประเทศ จะต้องมีจำนวนเงินเอาประกันภัยไม่น้อยกว่า การทำประกันสุขภาพของไทยตามที่กำหนดด้วยเช่นกันโดยมีผลใช้บังคับตั้งแต่วันที่ 31 ต.ค.62 เป็นไป รวม 3 ฉบับ which says that foreign insurances are accepted as far as they offer the minimum 400 + 40 K warantee I think we should all contact the embassies and local consulates to ask them to intervene with the highest thai authorities and clear that matter Have a nice day
  7. Hello If their idea is to have a 440.000 bahts warantee from farangs, why not ask them to deposit 440.000 bahts more into one account.. ?? at least this money would be here and not subject to disclaimer of waranties.. At least the money would be here and would not be spent in a low warantee insurance duplicating with your home country insurance Have a nice day
  8. Hello I have seen on the link a certificate which can be signed by a foreign insurance BUT I imagine it is only to get the first OA visa, as the text states that for 1st year you can have a foreign insurance but no more for extension.. I think they found this idea to squeeze a little more retirees, forcing them to invest in local insurance companies.. Have a nice evening
  9. Hello Anybody has a rough idea of the cost of those insurances ?? I pay an insurance in my home country and won t cancel it.. so I imagine I will have to go from here if this second insurance is expensive.. Another thing they don t point out is the fact that those insurances won t cover for a lot of preexisting pathologies.. so, what will they do against that as your major chances are to be in hospital for preexsiting pathologies.. for which the hospital won t get a cent from the insurance.. Have a nice evening..
  10. Hello One guy from Cha Am went to immigration today to extend his OA visa finishing on Nov 14th They told him he needs a thai insurance to extend his visa, otherwise NO EXTENSION.. They gave a list of insurances which are allowed.. you can find it in this link http://longstay.tgia.org/home/companiesoa NO FOREIGN insurance allowed.. Have a nice day
  11. Hello As a very nice spa for massage I would recommend Healthland.. They have excellent therapeutic massages (also of course a lot of others).. For one hour therapeutic massage is 450 bahts which is very reasonable as it is performed by a qualified person with university diploma.. There are 2 centers one on Pattaya Nua road when you come from Sukhumvit on the right hand side around 200 meters from Sukhumvit.. Another center is on Sukhumvit just on your left after Pattaya Tai when you go towards North.. Here for therapeutic massage I would recommend Dr Sukunya.. Receptionist speaks basic english.. It opens at 10 morning.. ph 038412995 Regarding restaurant, english people often like indian food and to eat something different from thai or european restaurants, I would recomend Indian by nature 306/64-68 Thappraya Rd phone after 5.30 pm 038 364 656 They have genuine fine dining indian food (indian cook, manager and owner) great cosy atmosphere and service .. They have a special Diwali dinner on november 9th with Bolliwood dance performance and set menu.. Big Buddha on the hill and the sanctuary of truth have to be seen.. Show her also some markets (Naklua pattaya Tai for example or Sattahip has a great market on saturdays) Have a nice day
