Big Joke: Promises easier, faster and more "watertight" Immigration rules

Recommended Posts

I think a lot of you guys made a mistake by burning bridges back home. Have any of you gave it a 2 second thought that you are moving to a third world country? All I hear from some people how UK, US or whatever is bad because it's a nanny state and you have to pay council tax. Come on, Thailand can be a nice place but it will never be your place. Are people really that naive. Always have a backup plan and only invest in your own country. One of the stupidest advice I hear here is only invest what you can afford to lose. Yeah sure....that's how Warren Buffet got rich, by being stupid.

There is a whole raft of measures coming and particularly for those attempting to live here on tourist visas/visa exempt entry's. People simply don't want to believe it. Why do you think the London Thai Embassy has held off on implementing the new online visa application system until May?  BJ only needs to come up with the measures of stopping what is portrayed on social media on a daily basis, as ways too circumvent the immigration system. That is his job. The Malaysian bond style system has been spoken about at length at committee meetings for the last 18 months. That is very likely to come in to effect over the next 5 years but most likely in stages. 

O please they are in no way trying to improve things....Every change for years now is showing farangs the exit.....Hell the one small positive change the online 90 day reports was not functioning for years and is still not fully functional....

Thailand was ever thus for Cluster B type personalities.

 

The country in which,most assuredly,their ship had come in.

I think that would be "cluster F" personalities.

You know this is piss in the wind the minute you see the word 'new stamps'.

 

Most technically advanced countries dispensed with 'stamps'.

 

But then again, most countries don't track visitors on Win 95

 

Oh well, at least he's trying...

You have 2 choices. Comply with Immigration or leave. People crying and whinging will not change it. The positive changes are good for those can and will comply and for Thailand in it how intends to move forward and to operate it's immigration policy.
It is 2019, not 1981 any longer.

I love these threads, BJ says some ambiguous comment and its interpretation morphs into the imminent deportation of all Falangs. I do notice from this and other thread postings, that most of the doomsayers have since left Thailand or never been long term here anyway. Could it be a touch of jealousy/ resentment that things didn’t work out for them that they want/ wish these self invented scare stories become reality

Where did you get those figures from? They are certainly not in any police order I have seen on TVF.

 

Just read your reply to another poster. You are specifically referring to retirement extensions yet your post implies changes to marriage extensions which hasn't happened. 400k in the bank for marriage extension has not changed.

Yes, but it is an announcement about very near future intended changes, so what is the difference ?

No DETAILS actually  announced but Thaigeezers already going into melt-down over it.

 

Just another day on the Internet folks- why not wait and see what may ACTUALLY occur instead of the ritualistic wiling and beating of chests.

Exactly,

one may will/is able to comply now, but  not necessary with the next amendements of the rules.

 

It is a personal matter what each of us is willing to undergo or/and able to futfill.

Depends when you have to make the choice...just when the "Now you see 'em now you don't" goalposts change once again to make life intolerable and you have to get on the bus.

 

About 50% of the "farangs" in my area have departed.No tourists are coming anymore-and,more to the point, very few have turned up as "reinstoushments" (Aussie military slang) and those who remain are generally over 70 and too old,too tired or too sick to travel.

 

I agree with your glimpse into the future by the way-but without the happy ending which you seem to imply-for how do you know?

Maybe the sham Indian marriages causes this focus on marriage visa requirements and they are not so much looking at the farang population but trying to plug a future hole of South-East Asian/Africans abusing the system....BJs focus was quite explicit about who they want to get out and from which regions.

That bridge will be crossed if  and when it has to be … until then I will keep enjoying life and leave all the worries to all those with nothing to do.

 

While on the subject, have any one of those crying about 'what' might happen, got off their arse and visited the local immigration office and asked directly what is going on or likely to happen -- any yes's out there?  

 

How dare you-that's NOT how Thaigeezers work.😋

 

I echo your comments wholeheartedly.

I'd be more interested in knowing what 50% actually means - there were 2 and now there's 1, or something else?  Where is "my area"?
