Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I am told by my other half that it has a Chinese name, not Thai and Wenshidi is there or thereabouts as my other half came up with 'Jek Bier' but that second word is long with a rising tonal accent. That seems about right. The name is given on Google Maps with Chinese and English characters as: 正盛 ...

Tetanus shot

Any recommendations for getting a tetanus booster? I know they'd be available at any of the main hospitals but was looking for something a little quicker/easier but still reputable.

Re: The best pharmacy in Hua Hin?

There are literally dozens of pharmacies in Hua Hin. If you're looking for a 'big' one, various major pharmacies are represented in the Market Village and BluPort Malls, where in addition to Fascino which was already mentioned, there are Boots and Watsons pharmacies as well. As for talking to a phar...

Re: Smart driver's licences launched

I just got a new driver's licence this week - it does indeed have a QR code on the back. It is also valid for 6 years instead of the 5 I was expecting.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

All the early announcements and reports that I saw, said they would do tourist visa extensions. The sign that they put up - right at the beginning as far as I know, also said that.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Glad you don't have to go too far. However, please lets not get too precious about it. Originally the BluPort office on first opening did not issue extensions. I asked specifically whether they did, and the answer was 'no'. Now that was two and a half months ago. In the meantime it looks like they ...

I could not get past first screen for 90 day reporting. Am using Google Chome. Still have to use Internet Explorer?
As far as I'm aware yes. When I tried it and got as far as I could without actually submitting it, I was using IE11.

Re: New immigration form (TM6) goes into effect in October

I'm sure the TM 6 was never a requirement for Thais but then again the TM6 cannot be the cause of the delays. Thais fill out the departure section of the TM6 card to leave Thailand they don't need to fill out the TM6 card on arrival. They did up until last year, as far as I'm aware. My wife has alw...

Re: Immigration to introduce 90 day reporting online

90-day online reporting is apparently working again, according to reports I've seen of people using it. The website seems to have been re-designed (again) including an English language option and I was able to get to the online 90-day reporting form and start filling it in. I couldn't submit it as I...

Re: 90 day reporting

Just need your passport and filled in form - assuming that's necessary where you'll report. Some offices now just do computerised slips. No need for money, photos or copies of anything. The Immigration Office in the Blúport Mall in Hua Hin is 'paperless' now for 90-day reporting. Just go in with yo...

Re: New immigration form (TM6) goes into effect in October

Seems they're going to scrap the TM6 forms - for Thai nationals only. According to newspaper reports:
Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda said [...] there was talk of scrapping the form entirely but the Tourism Ministry lobbied for its retention for non-Thais.

Other versions of the announcement issued at different times say the storm is almost stati...
