Let's wait and see what happens

John

It is very interesting to read all the gossip and drama surrounding the new visa rules. I think 'apparently' is the correct word to use during this debate because I think people need to look at this situation realistically.


How will the visa rule changes affect teachers?

Ajarn.com

I'm sure that many of you will have been reading over the past few weeks that there are some major changes on the way regarding visa rules and immigration laws in Thailand.


Byeland to Thailand

Brenda

I've been working at a government college for the last 5 months. While my school has kept good on the salary and pay me on time every month, the paperwork wasn't delivered on time as promised and I have had to do costly visa runs.


Thailand teaching stuff - May 2014

Another picnic basket of tasty blog links

Hi everyone, it's Peter Clarke again, with a selection of my favourite internet blogs and articles that I hope will appeal to teachers in Thailand. Well, actually you don't need to be a teacher, I think anyone who has an interest in all things Thailand will enjoy them.


Teacher mistakes

Avoid falling into any of these teacher traps

Ajarn has put together a list of the most common mistakes that teachers make in Thailand - both new arrivals and those who have been here a while.


Back to reality

The new school term starts - and not without problems

Much of this blog may sound negative (and to some extent, it is), but in all honestly, it's par for the course. I love Thailand, and generally speaking, I love teaching in my Thai school. Even so, there are little things that crop up all of the time, and you just have to take them in your stride.


Getting a 30-day tourist visa extension

A trip to the remarkably efficient Thai immigration office

I must say, I'm highly impressed with the efficiency of the whole process. It's not something I would expect from a Thai government office, and the process is far more efficient than getting a passport or similar document in the States!


A rewarding visa run

How to get a double-entry tourist visa in Savannakhet, Laos

I won't claim to be any kind of expert on the matter, but from everything I've heard from the many people and agencies I've talked to, Laos is the only country you can easily (relatively and without flying) get to from Bangkok that will grant you a double entry tourist visa.


The last exit

A group of teachers wanted to make a last visa run to Laos extra special

Teachers combined business and pleasure to experience a most memorable night in Vientiane. As one teacher said, "When I go to Laos, I shoot two birds with one stone. I get my visa and have a good time as well"


Getting hitched in the Land of Smiles

Continuing the adventure but as a married teacher

Hi, I am Elizabeth (Miss Ellie if you are one of my 5 year old students) and I am a homeroom teacher at an International school in Nonthaburi. I moved here from South Korea where I lived and taught for a year
