Just got a 25 thousand baht quote from an Aussie Real Estate agent on NOn Immigrant O . visa

Recommended Posts

He said he was trying to help me out for a "friend". ( I know the "friend" from the intenet, a 50 year old Chinese-Thai woman, who gave me his phone number.

He tried to put the "Rush" on me by saying that all visa agencies would be "illegal' by October. He made it clear, though, 'that he had a "friend" at immigration who could get it for me for 25K. Wot a bargain. i could barely contain myself as I told him that might be a good price for HIM......but not for me. He seemed completely ignorant of the existence of this forum.  This is what is being done every day in the name of Thailand and it's perfectly legal. Lives in Pattaya, naturally. Why do I waste my time???

My Chinese friend only paid 1k direct for them to ignore the cash not being in the bank long enough, quite a bargain I thought.

You may regret not taking that as people in Bangkok are being quoted double that price and agency prices are quickly increasing everywhere.

Good luck!

But what's the point of paying 25,000 / 50,000Baht 'fees' when it's going to come around again within 12 months and very possibly the 'fee' route not possible? 

 

 

Good point.....
