Good news for holders of UK, USA, Japan, Germany, France, Canada and Italy

When the dust settles it would be nice to have a list of crossings where it can be confirmed that people have actually received 30 days as reality and rule changes do not always go hand in hand.

What about the Commonwealth of Australia? Home to the most civilised and cultured people on the planet!

It's their way of saying that you should have been happy being a more civilsed and better cultured penal colony instead, of an independent one.

Yes, well, if you're Dutch you have to understand that helping them for FREE with advice and a master plan for flooding (which they have not implemented yet) during last year's flood puts you at a disadvantage....cheesy.gif .I say and keep repeating: An eye for an eye. If they don't allow long term visas here for your country, do the same in your country. If you are not allowed to buy land or houses here, do the same in your country. That'd help I am sure, what, with toxin investing abroad.... biggrin.pngclap2.gifcheesy.gif

Must be the first positive change in the visa law in ages. I hope other countries will follw as I'm not a citizen of any of the mentioned above...

Remember it's going to cost 500 baht to cover your 'medical expenses'!

That's positive, good news!

Now, if they could just extend the 90 day visa check in to 6 months or a year so it wouldn't feel like a visit to your probation officer!

I would not know how that feels, can you tell me.

Funny how they leave out Aust & NZ.

Wikipedia: "ASEAN stated that it aims to complete all its free trade agreements with China, Japan, South Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand by 2013, in line with the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASEAN

Australia one of the few countries with a "free trade agreement, at least it is "under investigation" since Barnaby Joyce bought up the Thai - Aust agreement 2 weeks ago as an example of how not to make a Fre Trade Agreement and used it as an example how some countries can not be trusted on ABC Q&A show while discussing the Chinese free trade agreement that the libs are trying to get done. He specificly mentioned how the Thais went against the spirit of it by manipulating CC engine sizes of vehicles to abuse it and it is all one sided due to this.

I am dutch, damned

So am I. Hope the privilege will soon be extended to citizens of the smaller countries.

No worries smile.png I heard from very high sources that all other countries (except the ones above) will get 60 days. The good people from The Netherlands will even get 90 days.

Yes, I still have dreams tongue.png

Don't give them any ideas! Next thing we might have to do is provide a urine specimen with the 90 report! And then, what are the most 'civilized' people in the world going to do?

That is along the lines of a post I put up. An eye for an eye.

What is Thailand getting in return from these counties.

I bet it is still just as hard for me to take my Thai wife on a holiday in the States.

What about them ? I could perhaps understand this preferential treatment likewise being afforded to the indigenous tribes in Australia but to open it up to what is in fact a majority of decendants from convicted criminals then perhaps your question is answered

I like your answer, I agree totally.

I love TV. No matter what the thread is, there is always a large degree of bigotry, if it's not the Thai's, it's someone else. You people need to find a hobby.
