Looks like that only applies to the Cambodian check points... pretty sure it's still business as usually everywhere else.
Mmm, yeah, I almost got turned away from the very quiet Tha lii friendship bridge to Laos almost a year ago as I mentioned before. But then is was just an issue of doing four in a row. Not too hard to make it to Vientiane if you live in the north, we just got lazy when we were taking care of the baby. I'll never try that again. 55

From what I understand Vientiane is or was starting to get a bit uppity with the paperwork (three months ago)... Savannahket was still lenient... but not sure about post-bombing though.

Well, not an issue for me for a decade at least. :D

Nice thing about having a Luuk Krung is you get can extend the tourist visa 60 days, then another 30. Maybe 2.5 time a year wouldn't be too much.

Last time I was there, the wife asked after I turned in the paperwork about a Marriage visa and they indicated they would have given me one without any extras normally needed. I didn't trust her answer, but she was a clerk there. Probably depends on who gets your paperwork.

No, that was last year when I had no work, so I was in country over a year.

I don't remember exactly what I had to show. We always has the baby with us. So I just held her up and pointed, let the wife did the talking. 555

I know it was the birth cert and the house book the kid is in and a couple other things, like maybe my Thai address.

555, my kid was pretty Obviously mine.

They knew me pretty well, it is a very small office in Leoi Province, it's up in Chian Khan.

The first time I went I didn't the paperwork I need to prove my Thai address and they wanted me to drive the 3 hour round trip to get what I needed. They ended up filling everything out and let us sign the landlords name, we had a copy of her house book and ID anyway. It was nice of them to bend the rules for me. That most likely would not happen in the Phuket office.

Something like that, we filled out a form that was supposed to be filled out by the landlord. What I got was a slip of paper I was was to keep in my passport. But it wasn't a normal blue book . They blue book we had to show was the one my daughter was in, the in-laws house. I had to have that slip of paper and whatever they had in their records.

So very confusing.

I think having kids and being of a similar age to your wife helps a lot, I have never had any problems getting an extension or visits from them.
