    I'm surprised they go for that... if you don't look or sound Thai, why would they go along with it?

    Embarrassment. As a farang/outsider it's quite easy to twist the whole face thing to your advantage, at these kind of petty levels anyway.

    I used mine yesterday at the bank instead of using my passport. One up for the 'Pink Card'.

    Bored so going through older threads.
    Pink ID card gets me into the national parks around here, hotels etc no problem, most have never seen one, also on planes domestic.

    Kids think it's weird as it says resident alien in Thai, ask any kid anywhere, where do aliens come from, outer space.

    Other benifits seem limited, but it is taken as ID when getting a multi O spouse visa from a consulate.

    The number is of more importance than the card, it's like the UK national insurance number, you can pay into the pension scheme, not that most here are young enough to worry about that.

    So I say get it if you can, tomorrow the rules may change, but the more ID you have, the better chance they change in your favour.

    Are you supposed to have a yellow book if you own a condo in your own name?

    I got a title deed and a blue book, but no yellow book

    Thanks
