    Wrong in every particular.  It's only Part B that has the 10% penalty if you sign up later.  Expats can and do sign up for Part B.  For every other part we are not eligible, i.e. we can only buy it if we fraudulently and foolishly claim to reside in the US.  

     

    Are you thinking any Medicare benefits are available  to a US citizen living outside the USA?

    I have a few friends that retired to Dumaguete from Vegas USA to The Philippines and are telling me it is better then Thailand as it is cheaper and Visas are easier for retired...

     

    Two cities could not be more polar opposite.   They only thing more quiet than Dumaguete is a graveyard.  

     

    Philippines,  wonderful people and horrible food.

    Excuse me but Baguio its a very busy town on a mountain top.

    Yes its cool climate barely needs an aircon running.

    place is crowded with local tourists from Manila and has several universities.

     

    I agree it has much of the usual congestion found in many PI cities.     I didn't find it appealing in terms of things/activities to do.

     

    I admit my statement was prejudiced in as much as I overall didn't care so much for Baguio.

     

    To each his own.

    She should reapply for the visa. You are a US citizen and you have right to take your family with you. There is no set requirements for foreign spouses to get visa. It all depends on the visa agent at the embassy. But again you have right to take your spouse and child with you to visit US.

     

    I  understand your feelings of how it seems you should be able to take your wife and child to the states  but I think you've been correctly   advised by many here with experience that that simply isn't the  case.  

     

    If you don't mind,  is your post based on how you think it should be or did you read somewhere that you  have a right to  take a wife and child with you?

    My experience years back did not show that to be the case.

    I have used an agency since retirement arrival in Chiang Mai on an O-A 8 years ago. This year a little rocky as they were not sure what I migration would do as one out of the 12 months required fell below the 65,000 baht. All went through OK for another year’s extension of stay. Just figure the agency deals with immigration every day and thus knows the twists and turns. This year 8000 baht without a re-entry permit (told them I was not going to pay for that should Thailand tell me I am unwanted). 

     

    Just remember to get the 1,000 THB stamp if you should decide to leave the country sometime  during the next year.
