  1. some of courses up here won't accept a Thai drivers license anymore. It has to either be a pink ID card, a yellow book or your passport with an extension of stay stamped in it.
  2. yes there are. Thai Noise Pollution Laws limit noise to an average of 90 decibels over a 24 hour period. Getting them enforced is the only problem.
  3. Will B Good. We've had our differences of opinion in the past, but there is something that can be done about it. Have your wife complain to the District Office, not the village head, and ask them to come and set up Noise Pollution testing equipment for a 24 hour period non-stop. If the average noise level exceeds 90 decibels, then under Thai Noise Pollution laws the District Office can direct him to move the speakers to somewhere else or take them down or turn the volume down so that it doesn't exceed 90 decibels. If he fails to do so within 15 days, then they can come and legally
  4. I agree with the first part of your post, viz ALL long stay visa/extension types should have mandatory health insurance. However, I disagree with you thinking that the O-A visa has been propping up retirees, and the majority of those retirees will be insulted by your saying they expect the Thai Govt system to treat them for free. What god damned planet are you living on or are you one of those with expectations of free health care and p'd off that you can't get it.
  5. you can't work with too many insurers then, because I've contacted EVERY Thai authorised health insurance company today and only 2 had any knowledge of these alleged changes ( and AXA was not one of them), and 1 will not take on new clients 70 or older and the other has no premiums posted on their web site even though they have already updated their site to show 3 million as the minimum cover for O-A.
  6. The link below is an ad posted by AETNA Insurance recently, and according to AETNA in this advertisement extensions of stay for O-A visas will require 3 million baht cover from Sept 1 2022. How are the Non-Immigrant Visa “O-A” (Long Stay Visa) requirements changing? - Insurance in Thailand - ASEAN NOW - News, Travel & Forum I'm also bewildered by the lack of logic and the discrimination when it comes to money in the bank and health insurance, each for different reasons. #1. I'm at a complete loss why an expat staying by reason of marriage has to only hav
  7. Out of curiosity I've been browsing the web sites of all the approved health insurance companies that I don't have my policy with, and I could only find 2 that currently advertise policies with 3 million baht inpatient cover for O-A visa holders, AETNA & Falcon Insurance. Now here's the thing that got me, AETNA are advertising on ASEAN NOW already about this new minimum cover BUT their website is already displaying it as the minimum O-A cover, with NO premiums displayed, AND it clearly states it only takes new applicants up to age 70. Whereas Falcon has 4 plans with 3m baht cover and will
  8. those rates are for Thais and Thai residents only. They are not for foreigners who are tourists.
  9. don't waste your time at Bhumibol Dam course. You'll most likely walk off of there too. If you want to try a reasonably good, inexpensive 9 hole course, check out Harapunchai G C in Lamphun. Also, ALL the golf courses up here have water everywhere, so be prepared to lose lots of golf balls over the course of your stay. Also if you are a Thai resident, viz. a long term expat, and have proof of that with you, you should only pay Thai rates not foreigner rates in CM & Lamphun.
  10. AETNA posted an advertisement on ASEAN NOW about this and it also stated that this will also apply to extensions of stay for O-A visa holders effective from 1 October 2022. I sent a copy of their ad to my health insurance company to ascertain if they new anything about this and they've heard nothing. I guess we just wait for something official to be published instead of guessing, and posting comments that are not based on facts as is the want with many people in this forum.
  11. Doi Ang Khang has no entry fees to enter the NP and there are a few camp sites where you can rent tents at reasonable prices per night. The only entry fees are to enter the King's Project, and generally speaking over 60's are free in most NP's in Thailand, but there is a minimal fee for cars.
  12. follow the directions in the chart posted by scubascuba. I received teh same chart from THG. I'm getting Moderna as my booster, after 2 AZ shots, and I have to wait 3 months after the 2nd jab before they will administer the Moderna jab.
  13. ever hear of desktop and laptop computers? I do 95% of my banking online and I NEVER use my phone.
  14. Had my first one in 2005 at Phoenix G C in Pattaya. My 2nd and last one was at Riverlands G C in Sydney around 2009. When I was on tour caddying in Australia & Europe I witnessed 4 by pros in tournament play.
