    You must be a bit dumb, then.

    Both Malaysians and Singaporeans can travel to Europe visa free for 90 days (out of 180 days), 90 days no visa required, as you put it.


    Nationals from the poorer countries you mentioned cannot, and thus need visas.

    Some countries allow Thais to enter for 90 days without a visa, such as Brazil, and thus Brazilians can enter Thailand for 90 days without a visa too.

    Who'd a thunk it could work like that, eh.

    Not always so. Japanese Koreans and Taiwanese have long been free to enter Thailand freely but have only recently been offered it themselves, so it's not all about reciprocal arrangements.

    You really are one dim mofo.

    Note anything about Japanese, Koreans and Taiwanese that might make them more attractive to Thailand? A reason why they might break from the pattern of reciprocity that mao mentioned?








    Clue: $

    I was actually interested in your response for once cy, so I read it. I needn't have bothered because it's typically numbskulled and illogical. I won't make that mistake again.

    If North Asian tourist money is so important to Thais they they'll act unilaterally, it goes against the logic of why Vietnam or Brazil for example requires visas for many visitors of wealthy countries.

    Precisely why I knew you wouldn't be able to resist responding to it!




    And you're reading this too, but won't respond beyond another tedious load of shite about your ignore list.

    Shit smeggly, could you be any more transparent?

    It is in all the countries that you 'never understand' about and named - Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar.

    I think living near easy access to leaving a foreign country is always a sensible consideration... so proximity to borders, ports, and airports.
    A coastal border region with low traffic density and an airport is thus a prime location.
    I am under 50 and not married and need to live in Thailand. So what else was I supposed to do? Anyway he the OP didn't say cheapest he said easiest and I don't think it can be argued that there is any easier visa than that.
    You just off the boat?

    Ahem, you opened that door yourself? I know of two, very different farangs, who've purchased that TE ticket, and with relative financial ease to their purses. However, but they're certainly not boasting about it, or offering to "prove" it, especially on an open internet debate platform, eh?

    Indonesia does not require proof of income for retirement visa. After 5 single year retirement visas one can get a 5 year one. First one is expensive as it has to be done through an agent after that it looks OK cost wise.

    Not Myanmar! Overpriced and while in theory owning a condo is possible getting the paperwork together is very hard and will involve some money under the table. I still think living in Thailand rivals most of its neighbors in terms of quality of life and house prices. I'd be looking at that 5 year visa if I was in the OPs position.

    Na,

    I thought it was a shit pit the first time i went, only going bak to show the Handbag Angkor Wat and the fact Airfares were piss cheap and scored a top hotel at half price.

    I'm sure the Infrastructure has improved ( had to Eh, people are OK but it just will never achieve all the good stuff Thailand has.

    So why do you not go live there ?

    You can then report back on what it's really like.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    China is very difficult.. and if you want to talk about which country is easiest to get a visa to teach in.. I can definitely say that China, South Korea and the Middle East (Kuwait) all have a lot of paperwork. China and SK by far are not easy countries to get a work visa!!! China has made it so difficult this year not only for new teachers to the country, but for people who move to a different city already living in China.

    I think Trump has not helped the situation!!
