at least indians don´t get caught doing it !

 

 

 

i always wonder how all those indians on nana selling sex toys do it. 

 

like seriously. 

 

i cant even be a tourist here that stays a few more months than the average tourist. 

 

and they can sell illegal pills and sex toys in the capital 

 

There is no doubt an informal system of "alternative work permits", and street trading licences. Cash only, on a regular basis. No bothersome paperwork.

I was out and about last night around pattaya and in all the years I have been here I have never seen the place so empty

 

Indians come here for a 200baht massage and a HJ,  that is it, numbers do not equal income

Well, they can always promote Pattaya to the 'World Hub of HJs'...

Most westies don't need a visa at all, they can come in on a visa waiver. That said, immigration policies are always discriminatory. And they should be. There's no room for PC in immigration policies.

True, but In my opinion when the Chinese economy was going full steam for the last decade. The Thai's saw westerners as a threat to Chinese tourism. And implemented ridiculous immigration rules. Strictly with the intension of eliminating western presence in Thailand basically. Other than westerners with family's, no one in their right mind would want to retire in Thailand now.

This is getting interesting to watch. I am curious to how Thailand will weather this storm.

He then felt sorry about that statement and gave them 5 tonnes of sticky rice and mango.

 

And then they wonder why the Chinese are getting tired of Thailand.

 

Source: Google: Rice and mango banquet no way to show 'we care' - Bangkok Post.

Perhaps he thought, he could appease them with 'exotic Thai food': "They have rice AND mangoes in China too?? Jing lor?"

C'mon Thailand. If you start with free visa do it right. 

Also free for Pakis, Banglas, Nepalis, Afghans, Butanis a.o.

Be a hub for quality nonsense.

They can block that by not issuing non-immigrant visas, which are a requirement for the yearly temporary extensions to the permit to stay. Probably will, I think multi entry non-imm O is already harder to get? Of course they could then apply the restriction across the board as westeners would just be small collateral damage.

I am interested in seeing what will happen in the next few years. My bet is that with the massive Chinese influence in Thailand the restrictions will be lifted for Chinese expats in the future. Time will tell.

Actually with so many Chinese already doing business and living in Thailand. I would imagine it is already very easy for the Chinese expat to live here with no problems and very little out of pocket visa expense.

I'm "babbling" on the whole situation for foreigners who are allowed to spend all their cash, but aren't welcome when they can't show a certain amount of dosh. 

 

     I do not have the feeling anymore that I'm welcome home. That was totally different 17 years ago and all was relaxed. 

 

Now you might reply and tell me that I'm free to leave? Sooner, or later, I will. 

 

 

RE - Now you might reply and tell me that I'm free to leave? Sooner, or later, I will. 

 

* Sooner or later in one way or another we will all leave both Thailand and the Earth as a Whole hopefully to a Place without corruptions, Crackdowns, visa requirements WP rules, 90 day reports, TM-7, TM-8, TM-30, TM-47 .... you name it … :thumbsup:

The reality is that making the Indians and Chinese get a VOA is considered racism when other races (that being you) don't require a VOA.

 

Yet, Thailand lifts the VOA requirement and they are still called racists.

 

The triggered barstool brigade again showing their "superiority" and "prejudice" towards other races....

 

The only racists here are YOU.

VOA for me is not the issue, priority lanes for said nationalities is -> ergo racist  --- sorry for the harsh 1 line lesson.

Nothing surprising. A simple reach to attract and appeal to an easy source of income from the ever  decreasing market. Nothing discriminatory.

Desperation in attempts  to sustain the lucrative  sources of foreign exchange is currently a global preoccupation in face of the stagnation of the global economy.

Quote me not advances in  stock market advances because they will in time prove the futile manipulations.

Global recession will devolve to  depression leading  to  war. The party's  over folks.

Throughout the years Thaivisa has become a complaint forum.

Thai is not racist, it's just jealous of white man.

Thais work 10-12 hours a day white man 7.5 hours a day .. therefore hatred of white man .. Thais can see themselves in Chinese and Indians for them have the same shit as themselves ...

Thailand is good for a vacation. As full-time residency, rubbish.

Yes, a short vacation. Anything more than two weeks can be too much. The hot weather is unbearable in that place. It is like a freaking hell on Earth.

everyone thinks "one coke and 5 straws" is a joke - it isn't

 

and yes they all pile into a single hotel room - must be fun when one of them brings a slapper back from the coconut bar - that would make a great reality tv comedy

Well, the concept of one girl and 5 ***** still applies in that context as well. No joke either
