  1. How does one get a 2.5% return on such accounts? What currency? Fixed deposits - What terms (in months/years)? Does BK Bank post these rates somewhere?
  2. Wait for 3 months to accumulate (210k) deposit in 9 month fixed account... wait 3 more months to accumulate (210k) deposit in a 6 month fixed account... wait 3 more months to accumulate (210k) deposit in a 3 month fixed account... wait 3 more months to accumulate (210k) and the three prior fixed accounts mature at the same time... Them you can roll them all up (840k plus’s interest) into one fixed term of whatever time period you like... say 24-36 months...
  3. It’s her house legally... So you must convince her to sell... She could keep 100% of the proceeds legally... You have no ownership rights... The only leverage you you have is the lease that allows you to stay in the house for 30 years... This would not be of much leverage to force her to sell if she doesn’t want to sell but could induce her to share the proceeds if you relinquish the lease as part of the sale...
  4. Yeah the place is a wreck at 120 years old...
  5. Did you sign the lease with her before or after you were married?... Are you on amicable terms with her?...
  6. I doubt TI is going to accept anything you can print off from the internet... They are going to want to see either your bank book or a statement and balance letter issued by the bank with their pretty red stamps and such.... Any 14yo with a computer and a bootlegged version of PhotoShop can make something from the internet say whatever you want...
  7. And if that line of thinking doesn’t work they can suggest building a wall across Ireland... That Estonia will pay for!!!...
  8. If I were you I would do the combo method... Move 200k to a bank/account that has a regular passbook that a bank will issue a standard same day letter. Then you will only need to show 50k monthly coming into Thailand (which your pension should cover - if you are transferring it into the country)... Just leave the 200k sit there year round with no need to fuss with the 800k seasoning rules and such...
  9. Within the city check out Stardome & Gym Khana courses both have driving ranges where you can meet other golfer (though here in CM 95% are Thai or Asian so there is language barrier to get to know most locals)... If you have a car check out San Sai New Golf, Hang Dong Golf and Green Valley... These are more local courses that locals frequentl... Also check out M Sport Complex driving range on the east side of town...
  10. Yes they will be accepted but one could read the Phuket’s latest “clarification” to mean that in addition to the embassy letter you will need to submit additional proof being a bank statements/bankbook (Presumably Thai) showing the 65k coming into Thailand... “Of course any financial statements from banks and copies of bankbook records proving this income already being received should be provided” If this is true the affidavit is essentially useless...
  11. This will fail and Trump knows it!... He just want this to be the headline and not the Meuller investigation...
  12. Google maps will work - But not 100%... But a little detour can be fun... learn how how to download the local area maps data on your phone (so you have map is cellular dead spots) and get a earbud so you can hear the voice directions too... Stick to smaller roads and drive defensively... And If you don’t have accident insurance don’t do it!... AA Insurance can give you a nice policy for about 4,000 baht...
  13. Sheryl, I would make another signup attempt using a debit/visa card as your first source of funds (you do not need bank ACH) say for $100 then if this works you know your general account is set up then add a bank ACH... Thst is how I set mine up... Also I would suggest OFX.com as an alternate... I have just set my account up and thru the ACH adding process a real person at their customer service emails me to confirm things!... great customer service...
  14. If you need these transfers to show up as "Foreign" on your Thai bank statement for visa renewal purposes note that people have reported that TransferWise transfers do not show up as foreign on some Thai banks statements... https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1077010-kasikorn-bank-cant-confirm-uk-pension-comes-from-abroad/?do=findComment&comment=13717913
  15. Kudos to the BIBs for their crack detective work!...
