Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

I've just read the original notice from the Embassy (in the other thread). I understand now. It's a pro-forma that you fill in yourself.
How is that verification? Seems quite pointless.

2 years left on mine. Everything could change.

Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

The original story was that you had to get verification from the British Embassy. Is this the same letter that comes with the passport and 'They actually had the same letters to hand out at hua hin immigration' as that doesn't sound like a verification. I'm a little confused!

Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

I believe the need for the letter only applies if you get your new passport in Thailand. I renewed my British passport just over a year ago when I was temporarily working in Abu Dhabi and renewed the passport using the UAE visa agents nominated by the British Embassy. When I left Abu Dhabi I made s...

Re: Great service at immigration

Isn't this the service where you need a letter from the originating embassy to prove the passport is genuine? Surprised nobody has mentioned this. I found this on the net: Thai Immigration Office now requires Verification Letter issued by Home Country Embassies/Consulates to process Thai Visa trans...

Didn't somebody (maybe me :oops: ) post artists impressions of the new station?
That artist's impression was some time ago which shows the new station to be in Hua Hin. I was never aware of a plan to build it outside.

Re: The Chicken Bone Man

I've seen matlots in Plymouth trying to shock people by sifting through somebody's sick and eating the carrots, but this was totally different. That reminded me of a particular show of friendship when coming back after a run ashore in Guz. One matelot puked along with his denture. "I'm not putting ...

Re: MSG inThai food

I think the problem is the fact that msg as an additive is synthetic and carries all the problems relating to 'synthetic copies'. If it was in the form of a natural extract there wouldn't be a problem. It's found naturally in a large variety of foods. i.e. Ocean vegetables, especially kombu seaweed ...

Re: MSG inThai food

Well food additives in Oz have to be approved by the Food Authority. Don't know who did the tests. I was quite surprised that MSG appears naturally in some foods. Glutamic acid is naturally present in our bodies, and in many foods and food additives. MSG occurs naturally in many foods, such as tomat...

Re: The bikers thread; trips, news, chat, all things motorcycle

Trump wants American products to be made in America while encouraging foreign manufacturers to make their products in America. The guy's an idiot.

I don't think he'll Triumph on this one. It's a Matchless effort but a Bonnie idea!!

Re: Electrical installation advice.

I'm sure some time ago that a regulation was brought in requiring that all new builds had to have 3 wire (earth) installation. I remember one project that failed inspection because it was a 2 wire set-up and they had to rewire the whole project before they got certification. But this being Thailand,...
