    - Non-immigrant Visa-ED
    - Non-immigrant Visa-O-A (Long Stay)
    - Non-immigrant Visa O-X (Long Stay)
    - Non-immigrant Visa-O (Thai Spouse)
    - SMART Visa
    - Tourist MT Visa (Medical Treatment)
    - Elite Visa
    Following the example of another member, for my next trip I have a Non-Immigrant O, with no requirement for Thai spouse. Thankfully. 90 days.

    Last year I did not spot that option, so got a tourist visa (60 days) and had to waste a little time going to Jomtien immigration to get an extra 30 days.

    As @StevieWonders pointed out, no income requirement in Thailand. Only new item is the proof of medical insurance when you apply.

    You guys worry way too much about this whole VISA and immigration thing. I lived in Thailand for 8 years without paying a single fee or visit to the immigration department.

    No doubt that's one reason you were deported and have been stuck in Canada for years unable to return! Not the best idea for those considering a move to Thailand.

    That was my own fault for trusting Leo that it's a good idea to move to Vientiane.

    Nowadays, I can't get back due to Covid ravaging Laos. They've been at over 1000 cases everyday for a while now, and are back into strict lockdown by district. I'll be crying tears of joy once I finally get there and am able to give my guy a hug and tell him everything will be alright.

    I have a feeling he'll be crying too.

    How about you put me back on ignore, and kindly [Deleted text]? That would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I'm 40 now, I'm old, tired, and simply do not have the time or patience for folks like you. If you can't manage to muster up the common decency required to treat your fellow human with a bit of respect, then you can kindly [Deleted text] out of my life.

    Thanks in advance for your participation in this matter.

    Some text in this post was deleted under rule 4.7.

    I can't tell you how little I give a shit. If you haven't noticed, the world is fucked.

    I'll give you a very small example. Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada went and created a new national holiday called the day of reconciliation or something for the indengenious.

    Want to know how he spent the holiday that he created? He partied with his billionaire friends in Tofino (northeren part of Vancouver Island) who ended up in the Pandora Papers, because of course that's who Trudeau's friends are. And you actually expect me to give a shit about things like tax and immigration law?

    The people who write the laws don't follow them, so why would I?

    Because nothing, or nothing serious, ever seems to happen to those people, but people like us are the ones who get penalized and end up suffering the consequences.
