    Can't say I've heard that. Some people say they imm officers stay a couple of hours and take photos of your house. They stayed no more than 30 minutes. The last 15 minutes just general chit chat and time wasting. They never entered my house. Never asked for petrol money. Quite informal really and a total bollix.

    I can understand if it was a first time application ( I had to go to my local Police Station 13 years ago with my wife ,In-laws and the Village head to be interviewed before I was given my Marriage extension, so being checked out is nothing new ! ) but when you have been doing your extension there for years it just seems pointless.
    My Friend has been here 8 years and has just gone for his yearly marriage extension and has been told he needs a visit.He said to them" I've been coming to the Office for 8 years,been staying at the same address and has a yellow House Book so why be checked again and why are no other Immigration Offices doing the same thing!!"...They came out with the same rubbish about the Bangkok Bombings bla bla .....he lives at the Northern end of Surin Province and he told them " it's going to be a nice 270k+ round trip,but up to them " .....lets see if they try to sting him for petrol money

    ^ On top of the new shit we are getting from KCI we, in the Amphur I live, get an annual police visit on top. That I can accept.

    Sorry if I misunderstood but the way you phrased it that was not clear. In either case, medical certificates are not a requirement.

    Here's a good thing for a change..

    Normally when you apply for a Non-Immigrant Type-O visa at Chaengwattana for the purpose of later extending it for a year based on marriage, being old, or raising kids, AND you're using the embassy letter as proof of sufficient income, you have to go to the embassy get the letter twice. Once when you apply for the Non-O and then again when you apply for the year's extension. That's because those are different areas and each needs an original letter.

    Yesterday I was with someone who was applying for the Non-O using the embassy letter (Canadian, not that it makes a difference). The officer had me go make a copy of it. She then stamped it and noted on the copy that we'd provided the original for the Non-O and that the copy she'd stamped was approved to be used for the yearly extension process in 2 more months.

    I'd never seen that happen but with notaries at embassies running anywhere from 600 to a 2000+baht a pop, this new stamping deal, saves both time and money.

    Anyway, that's it..
