    Interesting Situation

    Just another lazy day here in rural Chiang Rai...........come 4pm and were sitting on the front verandah/alfresco having a few drinks, myself, Paer, her sister & a girl from nearby, next thing Police arrive at the gate, he's invited to sit with us and alot of talk exchanged. Next thing is he wants Paers id and my passport and fills in some form, meanwhile he gets a beer poured and sits talking with the girls for half hour, he even gets a tour through the house. I asked if we have problems and Paer said no he see you on motorcycle and want to check who you 555


    While he's here the tut tut delivery of Chang arrives and he joins us for a drink, then the Police leave and say goodbye, as we continue drinking, no problem is the best answer I get at the moment 555

    Not unusual to register with your local police, particularly in the boonies.
    Also she is required to notify the presence of an Alien at her premises 555!

    I had a visit a year or so back, same thing, no problem and just checking. The house owner registering/notifying of foreign guest is interesting. Last time I entered via BKK I asked immigration about it and after 3 officials I was told that since I had notified nothing else had to be done. When I was checked on that occassion a year or two back they were also not interested in an 80yo making a notification. It seems that even though it appears to be a rule, it is enforced differently depending on circumstances etc.

    Old joke.......

    I saw these three rather large ladies in the bar and they were talking in a strange accent.
    So I went up to them and said 'are you three lovely ladies from Scotland???"
    Wales the one sneered...
    "Sorry, are you three lovely whales from Scotland"

    And that's the last thing I remember 555

    That immigration and the border police around here are still a law unto themselves and a lot of weird stuff happens with them. I know they can give the retirement visa guys a very hard time.

    Police officer to Paer. "Sorry to trouble you miss, but after the Bangkok bombing we are just going around to check on fake marriages in the district".

    Paer "Fake marriages....pffft. We've been together years but do you think my old man will marry me?".

    Police "Well what would you like us to do? We could have him arrested and banged up?".

    Paer "Ohhh....no need for any of that. I have plans for him...muahahahaha....".

    Couldn't happen could it...555

    a mate of mine lives out near Khun 7....when it is his time to do a Visa Renewal he calls immigration in Sissaket and a local immigration guy turns up on his doorstep a day or two later and helps him fill out his forms...the immigration guy then takes these and his passport into work and brings the stamped passport back a day later...same for his 90 day reports

    I think he may be a friend of my mates wife and comes from nearby....but its not bad service...555

    I was drinking with some immigration officers lastweek at our house party, ill have to stay friends 555............after the copper filled some forms the other day he did ask for a photo, I dont know if it was official as he put his arm around me and had the thumbs up, he finished his beer, got on his motorbike(without a helmet 555) and rode off.


    What gets me is the girls I was with, I asked what police want, only response was no problem 555........and that was from all 3 of them, no one seemed phased except me 555

    I wouldn't worry about it, as I have never heard anything actually happening after the visits. Seems more like, a "have to do", as someone big in Bangkok wants sort of thing.

    me and stew were caught out after closing time in phitsanulok. the whole town had shut down and we needed to get 20 k's to our hotel.
    unmarked pickup came down the road and stopped. a couple of thai guys in plain clothes telling us in thai that everything was closed,taxi finished and they'd take us to our hotel...insisted....and said they were cops. bit suss...but no other alternative.
    was a bit worried about them but the ride went ok. with some laughing and joking. pulled up right at the front foyer of the hotel and insisted we pose for pics with them. very grateful and thanked us heaps,laughs and smiles all round and wouldn't take any money for the ride 5555
