I have problem with visa, described it with details but I recive message that my account is too young
I am trying to go to Bangkok by Mumbai from Abu Zabi with change of airline.
To avoid spam, Nomadlist blocks certain message from new people until at least 7 days.
itโ€™s likely because your post contained links
Does it matter if I registered Thai Pass to go to BKK but I end up going to HKT (Phuket)? Do they check that?
I doubt they even look at it. Theyโ€™re dropping it in a few days.
๐Ÿ›ฌ zjxbjvqo just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‡ Bangkok, #thailand
Thanks!
Unlikely to be a problem
bcchdnyspd I don't know how, but I missed your replyโ€ฆ explored the options you described though. But I ended up with punspace coworking, liked the vibe there. And also, despite the nomads recommendations, I liked it inside the square much more over the Nimman area โ€“ calm streets and all the infrastructure I needed. Except for suitable accommodation with gym, etc :)
yes old city is great. Much more walkable and lots of good places.
Can't recommend anything specifically, but I can share some experience. Vibration as well as heat from the sun can be an issue, making the mount less useful a lot of time. Some of the delivery guys have something to shade their phones, as it can get very hot.
I'll usually put navigations on in my phone and put the phone in the cup holder, or use an earbud to hear the directions.
You can try searching Lazada for a suitable mount though
Mine wasn't scanned, looked liked they just wanted to see that I had it
> Thailand officially drops mask mandate with immediate effect


โ€ข effective immediately
โ€ข all public places
โ€ข private businesses and events have the ability and right to make mask wearing at their establishments and venues required
Nice!! rips mask off
Finally
Anyone know of an equivalent procedure for AIS?
I just googled โ€œunsubscribe spam TrueMoveโ€.
Thailand about to get a lot more busy.
Yep.. Unfortunately..
"You can only scan QR codes at stores that accept GrabPay Wallet or PromptPay QR code. QR codes from other wallets (e.g. LinePay, TrueMoney, etc) are not supported"
Based on GrabPay faq page. So maybe it is possible to pay in these places with grab app. I am going to try it soon.
Does anyone know of any job sites websites in Thailand? Mostly looking to hire a Chef, receptionist etcโ€ฆ
Would also love to know if anyone has any suggestions!
Is that an official confirmation message from true?
> SPAM SMS will be cancelled...
so the basically just allow Spam by default unless you cancel it
Your only real bet is Patpong, taipan bar, haremโ€™s, love Pumpui, then patong bay hill til morning
patong
Lol they call it spam even, so honest
Yeah it's so funny. Not even sure if they know! ๐Ÿ˜‚
genius, they use Spam as a service
Hi guys, I'm coming back to Thailand next week after more than a year with covid extensions visa and just 3 months abroad. Do you think it could be a problem to get a new tourist visa on arrival? They dropped the Thai pass right?
I heard the new M2 Chip Macbook Pro 13" arrived in stores today. I'll be checking out the Apple store at Icon Siam tomorrow but guessing will take longer to arrive here n Thailand. Has anyone else checked on this?
I was at the store at Central this evening and they had no M2 Airs in store.

They said maybe next month.

The didn't mention the M2 13โ€.
Like a personal chef and receptionist?
Do you run in to this problem with every country you go to?
๐Ÿ˜‚ haha sorry good point, my question is lacking context! I'm starting a holiday resort with a friend ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Thanks for the update. Yea from what I heard today online is the 13" Macbook Pro arrived but the M2 Air will be next month. I can also update tomorrow.
Thailand is usually a bit behind on releases from Apple, but I doubt demand for the 13โ€ Pro M2 will be that high, so they might get it quickly. But honestly unless you do A LOT of sustained workflows on the processor where the fan might help, or you love the TouchBar and can't live without it, I'd wait for the M2 Air - much better for most people IMO
Keep in mind that most stores usually have only the Thai keyboard version in stock. So the best way might be to order online imo.
Thanks all

๐Ÿ›ฌ hnuzkasepmd just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‡ Bangkok, #thailand
I've ordered online last week with estimated delivery July 5th
Curious to here your case once you do it :)
eknsapl weren't you able to re-enter after many COVID extensions?
Anyone been to the new coffee shops yet since the legal lift on marijuana. Heading to Bangkok next week
Heading to BKK + Phuket mid July to travel/wfh + forget about breakup
Where's a good place to settle down for 1-2 years, I'm doing Thai Elite visa
Considering Phaya Thai or Thong Lo in Bangkok
Quick question:
With the 30 day exemption for visa do we need to carry a proof of return flight and our accommodations booking?
Thank you ๐Ÿ™
Ive got an M1 mac from the paragon mac store, the thai keyboard works fine, the only issues I have had with it is that there is no little squiggle ~ key, does anyone know how to do this button? its usually the one which sits to the right of the shift button left side.
Isn't it below the ESC key?
Also ~ is called a โ€œtildeโ€
~~~~~~~
Amaziiing!
Cant believe its been there this whole time ๐Ÿ˜† im such a dumbas
First time on US/Thai layout keyboard?
Haha yeahโ€ฆ for English keyboaeds its next to the left shift, so I have to relearn the muscle memoryโ€ฆ I can now switch windows again ๐Ÿ™Œ
๐Ÿ‘Œ
Oh cool, where are you starting it?
You don't need proof of accommodation with the visa exemption scheme but you will need proof of onward travel. You could also be asked to show proof of funds as well but that seems to be up to the discretion of the guy at the desk
Its on the Island of Kho Phyam, a more chilled small island, we are actually renovating it/ rebranding it as its been around for a while but got quite degraded since covid.
onwards flight => yes
accommodation => no
I didn't need an onward flight ticket. But I had to write down where I live in Thailand. Lenght of the stay in a Hotel wasn't necessary.
I didn't make it to the Apple store today so no update on inventory sorry. As someone mentioned above though either way would most likly have to order online first to get the English keyboard either way.
Hey everyone! I'm in Bangkok at the moment and coming to CM next week for a little bit. I don't know anyone there and would love to meet ppl! Anyone around?
qnpckpg yea I agree most would be better off with the air. I do Video Editing and Motion Graphics and don't do any coding so I need something a little stronger. I'm still on the 16in 2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 w/ 32GB ram that came out right before the pandemic hit. With all the upgrades this thing cost me over 5K USD at the time and I am seeing anything even M1 blows this thing out of the water for way way less, it's kinda sad really but for me I'm going for the new M2 pro with upgrades.
If you're there till 20th sure, I'm waiting for visa ๐Ÿคž ucqiafil
You'll be about 20th July you mean?
Yeah I land on 15th, then I'm going to Phuket with a few local friends, would you like to join us there?
They're all women you won't feel awkward
Anyone with experience on bringing two pieces of carry-on bags on Thai Smile airlines? I have a backpack, and a 21in carry-on luggage, would they allow it or Iโ€™ll have to check them?
I didn't have any issues Re-entering after being in Cambodia for 2 months. I was not on COVID extensions though, I had 2 long term visas (6 month and 12 month). There was some extra flipping around of pages in my passport looking at the stamps though :)

I did have a exit flight booked for 30 days later, but was not asked about that at all. I re-entered on a 30 day visa exemption entry (Canadian passport).

This was back in mid-April.
Might depend on size of backpack. ie 10L VS 40L
There's a nomadlist meetup in BKK. 30.June
Ya that's a bummer on the money invested there. Kind of either have to sell it now and get what you can or use it till it dies. I'd grab a M and sell the Intel for what you can. The workflow time savings should be able to make up for it.

Have you seen any M1 vs M1 Pro tests for your workflow? I wonder if the 14โ€ Pro might be a better choice if your going to get a 13โ€ Pro with bumped ram etc?

Yes maybe! Thank you :) I'll be in chiang mai on Monday so working out my plan for after this :) thank you!
What's the 6 month visa? Multi entry?
so who is going to be the first to pick this up? home.kpmg/xx/en/home/insights/2022/06/flash-alert-2022-127.html
That current employer requirement is โ€ฆinteresting
It was a education visa from Insight school in Hua Hin (again during Covid times fall 2020)
TrueMove seems to be fine with one of the unlimited plans. They just erroneously told me I was out of data for the day.
27L
A bit balky but US airlines were ok with it
Any quick laundry recommendations in Patong area?
Current employer must be a public company on a stock exchange or a private company in operation for at least three years with combined revenues of at least USD 150 million in the last three years;
the way it is written i wonder if that is required only for the < 80k yearly income
Hi all, just arrived in Koh Tao (aka murder island) and will be here for a while. Hit me up if you're around
I didn't need to provide any proof of return flight (because I didn't have one anyway lol) And as cupsuprvdx said you do need to show where you will be staying
I'll be here for couple of weeks. Happy to meet up at some point, I'm based in the south of the island
Why would anyone take this over the cheaper Thai elite visas
Lmfao
So your options are:
1 be a millionaire
2 be over 50
3 work for a massive corporate company who would probably been able to issue you a visa without this law as they are so big
โ€œWill be here for a while/weeksโ€
Love the optimism for murder island visitors
