Friend of mine went to do his normal 90 day at Nong Khai yesterday and they demanded to see his bank book had 800000 baht in it, not just one person but two. So yes they can ask for whatever the hell they want.

can one assume this was on his first 90 days after extension, or was it just a random anytime thing? 🙂

It would have been nice to see 'Queen's English' being used instead of the pidgeon translations. I would have helped them if they had asked nicely.

What! Without a work permit! I think not sir, I think not.  🙂

maybe some farang needs to sit down with their IT guy and explain the problems and issues.

Obviously they are not aware of how bad it is ... 

We can sit here and complain until the cows come home but that ain't gonna fix it.

The 'face' issue here would prevent anything remotely like your suggestion from ever happening. 

 

If the designers were aware of their incompetence they would have sought advice before they started. If they are aware of it now they won't willingly admit it. If they are not aware of how bad it is then they are truly incompetent. 

 

I have yet to see a Thai website that is easy to navigate and works properly. Even the Bangkok Bank website is only minimally functional.

 

This is just not a strength here. The Thai IT infrastructure is in its infancy. 

 

The typical Thai citizen does not reach for a web browser in daily life. Until that changes there is no impetus (money) for web development to grow.

If this is any indication of the quality of websites produced by domestic Computer Science grads from Thai universities, than this country is well and truly *****ed technologically. 

My 13 yo niece could put together something better using Wix.
Actually, this looks like something a 13 yo put together with Wix.

This page can't load Google Maps correctly.

 

GM doesn't load on my browser either when viewing their page...

 

And, if they're gonna have a supposedly EN version of their webpage with the directory of Immigration offices, why is all the Immigration Office address info still showing up only in TH? And the same with the News, Announcement and Procurement headlines?

 

Well, all I can say is, it certainly is more modern looking than its predecessor site in terms of web design. But it would be nice if it was also actually functional.

Wow, with website design like this it is no wonder that Somkid was pressing the US Ambassador to help turn the Thailand into another Silicon Valley. Truly great work guys all the tech giants will come running to Thailand once they see this site.

Seriously I bet if they hired some 15-yr old kid they would get better results.

Wow, I really wonder how they decided on who makes the page. Theres way too much scroll events for no reason. Elements are being moved by Javascript instead of just being fixed with CSS. Google Maps doesn't work. Some text is placed half outside the viewport, text hasn't been tested on mobile devices because as soon as it breaks, the line height is way too small and the lines are overlapping.

 

Looking at the markup, the whole page seems like it has just been pieced together by separate code snippets/library that full-filled the requirement for certain features (like the flipping cards). The performance is probably one of the worst I have ever seen on a onepager homepage.

 

If someone can hook me up with whoever is in charge for that homepage, I will gladly program them a professional one for a 1 year extension.

Of course, being able to use IOS is still not on their map.....maybe they don't know that Apple make computers!

As somebody with a background in web design, all I can say is: "Wow.  Just wow."

 

Thais seem to like seizure-inducing flashing and moving parts on a web page.  Kind of the visual equivalent of kazoo sounds on TV dramas. I get so distracted trying to navigate some Thai web sites, I just give up.  I'm more of a "Just the facts, ma'am" kind of guy, especially when looking for information on a government web site.
