I was in Chiang Mai Immigration today to do my 90 report form. They posted in a number of places that now in order to get a Residency Certificate (which is needed for bike purchase or license); A: You must have a ONE YEAR VISA. B: Show a copy of your rental or lease agreement for residence; b1. Have a letter from the lease holder verifying the agreement. b2. Have a copy of the lease holders ID Card. If you own a home (which only applies to a few) you must show proof of that also. I ASSUME that getting the proof of residency from your own consulate and presenting that when you register your bike or get your license is acceptible (again ASSUME!), but there may be a change there also. Dave Early Ever notice that "What the Heck!" is usually the right answer?
