    Hello Folks I have been in Europe for last 8 month returning soon,, I hope as I am having serious problems getting a proper VISA ,,I cant do marriage visa as i have problems with my wife ,she is being difficult ,, I ,cant do retirement as I dont want to keep big assets in Thailand banks anymore,,, i have lost faith and trust ,,, cant get a multi entry non O from any Embassy in europe as they no longer issue tham ,, they tell me i must get one in Vietnam,,,, They wont issue me a Multi entry Tourist visa either as I have too many stamps in my passport ,, they will issue me a Single entry tourist visa , but thats not much use if I get called away on an offshore job which is very likely ,, i have the funds in Europe ,, and property in Thailand so its all a bit stressful,, i just want to come for 4 or 5 months and ride and relax,, ,,

    once i arrive a will probably move my Bike and tools to my mate alex;s house ,, I fix his bikes and he has a spare room,, from that base i want to chill and travel ,, and see what transpires..,,need to give the Ducati a good check over , before i travel to far

    plan is to go to Chiang mai and north ,, maybe cambo again ,

    The visa worry is biggest concern ,, I will speak to an agent once i arrive see what can be done ,, I am not spending so much time in LOS anymore due to work and my old dad in UK he is 90,, plus my Thai daughter Kat is in UK pursuing her career as a horse trainer ,show jumper , and casino croupier and most of my work is now based in europe ,, i am semi retired {retarded} ha ha


    another worry is that due to age and pre existing conditions I cant get decent medical insurance that is not eye waterinly expensive ..

    are there any new rules regulations i need to know about ???
    cheers

    I would have thought that new O-A visa wouid be the best way to go. Do they have them available in the UK.?

    Hi David The O/A one was not mentioned to me when I have been applying in london ,, and now its too late as to get CRC check would take about 6-8 weeks according to Sussex l police ,, the medical is not a problem.but medical insurance is ,a potential problem , lots of pre=existing conditiomns or prior medical history even though i can pass offshore medicals means many companies wont give me a quote or when they do its too expensive,,, when im working corporate insurance for mariners covers me.

    I have been through this before when in Thailand have spoken to AA in Pattaya and brokers in UK

    Maybe next year that might be worth pursuing ,, I can get an NON IMM O Multi entry in Ho ch Mihn .
    can u take bike into vietnam now ??

    Just had my application for METV tourist visa refused ,, reason ,, My employers are not a UK company ,,,,,,,they are Norweigan ,,,, to get any long term visa even tourist visa from london embassy you must show minimum £5k in UK bank which i have and a UK employer ,,,thats the 3rd application I have made to london embassy under the NEW RULES and have now lost £375 in visa fees for nothing ,,, Im not the only one ,, my mate Russell who goes to Thailand every year as a MuaiThai training is having same bullshit problems ,,,

    Pattaya reliable VISA agents KEY visa have told me Im going to have to do a side trip to savanaket or Hochiminh to get a Multi entry O visa based on marriage ,, currently they can do them there , no medical or employment papers needed and less stringent finacials ,,,but London and most EU embassies are now aweful ,, apparently its the new Evisa system rolled out in europe by the Thais .

    its ridiculous
