I came to Thailand 18 yes. ago for a 3 day convention at the age of 51. Loved the place...went back home,... sold my house, gave up my job and moved here within 3 months. Have been here ever since.

   My motto in life .."Keep it simple".

Hello Dotpoom,

😀 Thank you!  I appreciate your input. I am ready to slow down to smell the roses. 

 I am moving back to Thailand with 2 farang friends. They will need my help with the visa. They are also retirement age with nursing background hoping to be useful here in Thailand where we will be making our home. 

 

Maybe you could give me more guidance about getting their visa to stay. 

 

Thanks again,

Jimlim

Dear Steve187,

I have a Thai I'd card, but I don't understand what you meant, " are you in a house book?"

 

Maybe you meant, do I have registered my address in a family household? Yes, last year when I got my Thai i.d. card, I had to have a registered resident address.

 

I appreciate you questions, and thank you!

Be sure to enter Thailand using your Thai passport.  I have a dual national Thai friend who made the mistake of presenting his U.S. passport when entering the country and kept doing retirement extensions for several years.  He was denied access to the Thai medical system even though he had a Thai I.D. and was listed in the house book of his sister.  He had to make a short trip to out of Thailand and switch passports in order to be accepted by medical providers and save himself a fortune for his kidney dialysis.

Great advice. I believe that one has to fly out and back into the Thailand in order to switch passports - it cannot be done via ground based border runs.

Yes, I believe that's right.  My friend flew to KL.

Dear Nancy,

Thank you for your advice. I was wondering about that, since I just got my Thai I.d. this last year November 2018. I came into Thailand with a US passport, and have not got yet a Thai passport. 

 

Now, I have to think about contacting the Thai embassy in Los Angeles, California about acquiring the Thai passport before moving back to Thailand. 

 

Thank you so much! Such a super helpful advice. I can feel such kindness in this forum.

Silly person thinking about moving to Thailand in the first place. Vietnam is now THE place to opt for.

Thank you Steve187,

Lipflipper didn't read all my comments like you did Steve187.  My reasons to move to thailand are much more personal than just countries hopping.
