  1. I am arriving in about 5 days on an OA visa I got before Oct 31. I'll let you know how it goes at immigration. To be safe , I got insurance and also got the required certificate signed. On a different note, I keep reading about using an O visa instead of OA. My understanding was you can only get an O visa is you are visiting family or are married to a Thai. Can someone clarify this Visa for me Thanks
  2. I actually never plan on using this policy, as I got it just for satisfying the requirements for the OA visa.
  3. Sigh. I've never felt more stressed about coming back to Thailand than I have since this new order. I am a 56 year old who spends anywhere from 4 to 6 months per year in Thailand for the winter months. I'm not a fan of border runs, so the OA Visa is the best for that length of time. In addition, I'm hearing if you rack up to many runs, you stand a chance of getting rejected I received my OA visa in mid October, prior to the deadline from my consulate in USA. While they did not require insurance at that time, I still purchased a policy from Regency designed specifically for this new requirement. (As a side note, I still get travel insurance). My broker ,who got me the policy, had them fill out the certificate from the website and sign it. I do not think it has any kind of stamp however, which may pose a problem. Who knows I plan on arriving next week, so I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best when I arrive, I'll post my experience here on a new thread
