    I doubt you will have any problems. I did a trip home with my nine and a half year old twins as you know. No problems at all. In fact I never thought about it. It will be quite obvious you are a father and daughter, who I will bet cant stop smiling and laughing. Just have fun mate.

    Best to be safe than sorry though.

    She has an Aussie passport as well, which I found out today expires next June.

    Happy days.

    I've done plenty of trips and never been stopped either. But it can happen, I know a fellow was stopped leaving Bali with his son. For the sake of a piece of paper, not worth the risk of a hassle...

    ^^^ To be honest mate I thought that as well, but let's face it, if you were going to abduct a kid then it would be obvious to book return tickets.

    If she's on a British passport with the same surname then they won't give you a second look.

    It's leaving Thailand on her Thai passport that I'm more concerned about mate. Anyway, it'll give me something to do tomorrow.

    The natural thing to do. Again not a problem. My mom gave me worry gene. It never kicked in with this situation. My kids left on Thai passports with no Thai name at all.

    As I've aged I've turned into a worrier mate. Nothing used to bother me but now I cross the Ts and dot all the Is. I think that international travel has now become so tortuous that you can't be over-prepared.

    Oh, and I just had an acknowlegement email from Lufthansa... explaining the need of time to reply. Apparently they are currently receiving 'unprecedented' communications... I wonder why.

    Emirates had no problem making contact.

    Was going to suggest Flyertalk also. Post it there it will give you bigger Hammer/Hand Grenade.

    I'm the same....with the rules changing as often as they do, a healthy paranoia generally is best.

    You should get that sorted out sharpish. I've just renewed my kids aussie passports and was told I will get them back in 3 months WTF apparently now restrictions are lifted people can't get out of here quick enough.

    ^ I'm only back home for two weeks this time mate and I think trying to squeeze in a passport run would be pushing it. But point taken, thanks.

    I think the daughter's UK passport is also up next June and the UK have been quoting around 10 weeks, but in reality taking a lot longer. I'll get on to all of this early next year.

    Things are really progressing and we'll be oddyseying before you know it. The final potential barrier has been removed.

    After a few day's on my best behaviour, not to mention a bottle of duty free perfume, today the missus went down to the Amphur and obtained this permission form I need to take the daughter out of the country, sans mother.

    I've gotta say, I'm really looking forward to a few weeks alone with the daughter in a completely different environment. I think it will do us both a world of good. It may sound strange but I get very little time alone with her, and the bloody gardener has actually spent more time with her than I... but that's just the way it is I guess.

    Anyway, I like to keep these threads informative and this is the form. As I have no idea which parts are actually sensitive I was a bit over-zealous with the redaction. The cost was '500 Baht', but I take that with a pinch of salt. I think I may have paid for a couple of lunches as well.

    ^ Yeah, knowing my luck the only bit I didn't redact will be my name. I don't even know what it looks like in Thai.

    I'm still hoping that the document's not a parking ticket or a guarantee for a rice cooker... but I think it's probably the genuine article as I suspect the wife would prefer me in the UK rather than at home in Korat. I guess I'll find out at the immigration desk a week on Monday.


    The big oddysey news today is that the Rav4 has come through. The owner wasn't checking caller ID and ignoring my calls after all... he'd had a heart attack and was in hospital. And I don't mean that to sound flippant at all, he's a really lovely guy.

    This doesn't only save me a thousand odd quid in hire car fees, it also means I don't have to spend 5 weeks sitting in Chitty's ejaculate-sodden seats while trying to explain to my 11 year-old daughter what all the stains were caused by.

    An added bonus - I also now have a 5 year supply of wet-wipes that I won't have to pack and can leave at home for my personal use.

    ^ FFS... so you mean this entire thread is spelt wrong?

    WTF couldn't anyone say earlier?

    I've been putting up with 'Oddysey' being underlined by a red squiggly line for weeks now, but assumed it was the American spell check.

    Sorry, but this has pissed me off. I hate bad spelling and always proof read my posts.

    Bollocks, I'm annoyed now. Could a mod please amend the thread title?
