  1. Why not give them a call yourself? In the first instance I called on an unrelated thing and just asked, “no sorry sir, marriage visa is limited to one account, retired or WP as many as you like” So far I have asked at 2 branches even suggesting to the manager it’s his discretion to wether or not he can open another account for me. Both said, bank of Thailand rules, sorry. I called Kasikorn today, with the intention of getting a fixed deposit account, no, marriage visas are restricted to one account, but apply to the bank in person and the manager can apply for special consideration on your behalf. I will just need to keep trucking round the branches. Give them a call .. and can I ask the number of accounts you have? What bank are they with? Might be helpful.
  2. Kasikorn - but the rules are from bank of Thailand - marriage visa = one account. I used to have bank of Bangkok, thEy refused to allow me to use internet banking, and when I lost my atm card I had to fly to Bkk to a get a replacement. So .. Yup! Retirement visa = no problems, as many as you want.
  3. That’s just as much of a headache to open another account by walking in off the street down here. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. I’m currently applying for my first extension of stay based up marriage, although we have been married for 9 years, I have always had either a work based extension or savannakhet ME visa. I currently have around 1M baht in a single savings account with an ATM card - the same account that I use to buy goods from the internet, which is slightly worrying. I asked the bank for another account without an atm card to store surplus funds - Sorry, sir, cannot. Does anyone else have any suggestions on how to approach the bank? it seems if I’m on a retirement visa I can have as many accounts as I want, but by marriage, I’m restricted to one account. Seems absurd, considering all the upheaval in the retirement visa and seasoning rules.
  5. Just thinking back, I used to have an android box. Have you thought of plugging in your drive to your laptop? Then either download the files directly to the drive or setup utorrent to move the files to the esata drive. Then you would plug your zidoo into the tv with hdmi. Open Kodi (a media player) on your zidoo box, you will see the drive appear on the network, then steam over wifi. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  6. You have a windows laptop? Can you see the tv box on your network? Is your zidoo box within a cable reach of your laptop / router? Your esata drive is a USB drive? I’m not too familiar with your box, you can simply unplug the drive and plug it to your laptop, transfer and then connect to your tv box. If you can see the drive on your network, then it’s a matter of dragging the files over and then deleting the original. I do something a little similar with my Synology NAS and an old windows laptop that I use to download and seed files. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  7. Are you confusing “work permit” with “extension to stay” WPs are issued by labour office - savannakhet consulate issues visas.
  8. Exactly. I left this post to the naysayers - down our way, if you have a valid reason to work, your employer applies for a WP, when I have been to the labour office it’s full of construction workers and (less and less) oil workers. Its only immigration that seem to making the process of staying here to use the permit difficult.
