Apparently it wasn't Mr John's actual birthday

 Wonder what they actually know. They know where I live (after all the 90 day reports I've made) but still needs a new report every 90 days,why is that?

what a blatant attempt at damage control by immigration after yesterdays, monthly shifting of the goal posts and bureaucracy expansion with relation to retirement visa's. Thaivisa is being used as a propaganda arm for the immigration department, daily news of immigration round ups, crime reporting, trying to shape falang perception. The immigration offices are not much better than meat processing centers. Anyone else here had someone smile at them at immigration recently, let alone sing you a song? <deleted> this is. Thaivisa has become a propaganda distribution and intelligence gathering organization for the Thai military

great post mike, most people who still believe they are being savvy when living on this land have their eyes closed and think of fairer rules of law societies, without thinking of the huge intelligence gathering of the junta in all aspects of society. Internet and social media and free to access forums have become easy fodder for propaganda, its the battleground of control that they been learning from their partners the chinese state

It's genuine concern about you and your health. They do worry about you and need to know you're well.

No other reason has ever occurred to me.

My fellow Norwegian doesn't look too convinced in the picture, maybe he was expecting a deportation instead. Now he can relax for another year. And wait for another birthday cake,

I am beginning to think that all of immigration are as mad as a box of frogs. Nice enough gesture, but really? 

 It's not how you expect such things to be at home, but it is the Thai way of doing things.

 

Is it wrong? NO!!!

 

I for one don't want everything to look the same as my original country.

I read about all the problems with immigration but I have to say that I find them all to be crap. 

 

Maybe  pathum thani is in the twilight zone  but I had never in 9 years had any issues with them 

 

Just did my annual extension  in 45 minutes including my new residence and 90day.

 

The only thing different was they kept maybankkimeng statement and my letter

It was a nice gesture. Now, if they would only stop picking on ex-pats, by continually raising the bar, in terms of their requirements for marriage and retirement visas. Perhaps this was a PR stunt, to make up for the increasingly draconian rules and regulations. Keep money in the bank 90 days AFTER the visa is approved. Give me a break. Do you really want us all to leave/ Really? Are you guys really that dim witted? No ability to see the big picture on any level?

Forgive me, but all that I need and want from IOs is for them to be efficient in getting  me through and out the door,  know their own rules and apply them consistently and not take back handers. Exhibitions like this one leave me cold.

Ask what the people in the queue thought.

Great birthday gift for a diabetic though, or at least encouraging the creation of one.  Why not buy him a pint or a marine plankton smoothie?

What a nice gesture, bit different to Khonkaen, they only want a photo..... Not of me but my catheter bag.😲

You're lucky. I never get asked for photos at KK. Next time I have to visit, I'll complain.
