    God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

    Malaysia vs Thailand. Just get your jobby done in Malaysia, and travel to Thailand at will. Cheaper too.

      What's a 'jobby'?

      Serious question.

        To be specific, the M2H visa mate. This allows you unlimited, visa free travel to and from plus residency in Malaysia for a period of 5 years, renewable. So you could set up base in Penang or Langkawi- both just a short hop from the Thai border (Langkawi a short ferry ride), and use Visitors visas for your Thai jaunts.

        Compared to the hoops they make you jump through for Permanent residency in Thailand, it's a doddle. And even on that Elite card, you've still got that 90 day reporting bullshit, plus whatever changes the capricious Thai government might choose to make at the drop of a hat.

          Well, that does sound attractive although the Non-Imm-O based on the Retirement Extension is no big deal. In moi's case, the Immigration Office is a 1/4 mile from a big mall with a Tops Market and all the bells & whistles so it's a piece of piss to kill two birds with one stone every 90 days.

            Well, if I had a crystal ball that is the way I'd have gone. Then again, I'd have left a couple of rental apartments in Oz too, and seen my money well over double while earning a decent income. But of course I invested in Thailand, instead. Guess crystal balls are as rare as face masks in Thailand, or bog roll in Australia.

              Increasingly, over the years, become much more convoluted and unnecessary complex than it needs to be.


              The growing, and attached, authoritarian xenophobia is firmly in order.

                That doesn't take into account the bird-brained fokers introducing their two land border entries per year rule.

                  Penang has airport + Thai consulate. And do you believe anything the Thai gov't says? The economy of Had Yai basically relies on Malaysians coming over for a cheap shag. I really don't see it happening.

                    I don't think the rule applies to Malaysians and other ASEANs.

                      It has been, for two years already.

                        Bingo. So how is it that so many visa runners that I both know and know of, continue coming to and from Thailand apparently unimpeded, including some TEFLers obviously working under the radar? Never believe or trust Thai gov't b/s.

                          They won't be if they're using land borders.

                            Oh yes they are- you can take that as Gospel! One trick of the trade is to enter thru' a different land border than you exited. I don't know how many expats are doing it, but it would run into thousands. Some have been carrying it on for years. Another useful trick is to have two passports. Another is the standard bank account scam, which has been going on for many years. I have no idea how many millions of baht corrupt senior Imm officials make from that scam- but they all drive nice cars, and usually own the expensive photocopy shop to be found close to large immigration offices.

                            Now stop boring me smeggle- this has been going on for years (well over a decade) and I am well aware of it, including people that are doing it.
