  1. My first 59 days are up July 4. What are my options: 1 mo, 2 mo, 6 mo, 1 year? Is there a cost advantage one versus the other? At what point must I apply for ACR-1? Can I use a downloaded application form? I understand the copy of passport and the 2 pictures requirement. Beyond that I am lost and nervous about screwing it up. Any step-by-step that my tiny little brain can wrap itself around would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  2. I always found Immigration a pleasure to deal with. Always polite and friendly. Maybe a question or two if one is married or not, and thats it. Can't remember any incident like this reported before. On one of my returns to Ph, I went to the side office at arrival where the high ranking IO is located. I presented my passport and 3000 and asked if it was possible to get a extension to 59 days. Immigration Officer took my passport and went thru page by page. Yearly trips to Thailand for a couple of months, between my PH visas. Also retirement visa for Thailand. That alone should had been a clue of my 'status', as retired. IO: Why you come here so often? Do you have business here? : Sir, I am early retired and have pension from my home country. I do not work here. IO: I think you work here, but you stay on a improper tourist visa. : Sir, I can proof to you that I have pension from my country and don't need to work. Do you like to see my Embassy letter? While I started to take out my documents, I was given a verbal shower about how many who work without the appropiate visa for doing business in the country. This went on for like forever, and I started to worry that they would return me on next flight out. I was now holding out my proof of income, my embassy letter, but the IO did not take it, just continued talking. I was now very uncomfortable. IO: We can deny you entry, and very possibly we will not allow you to enter next time, without a proper visa. With those words, a person was called in, and out went my passport without explanation. After some time, my passport was returned to me. IO: Get the appropriate visa next time. I was then followed out to a IO booth and my passport and doc was handed in. Was stamped in and left the area. Looking back, what did I do wrong? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Normally casually dressed same a typical traveller. Not like a business man, or a tourist on his very last dollars, polite all the way. Never had contact with PNP or any dispute at all, in or outside the country. A totally clean police report from home, as well. To this day, I can't fanthom why I was given this special treatment. 1/2 hour of my life that I will never forget. That younger frequent tourists might get this hassle, I can understand. But that age 50+ with their documents in order get this treatment, was beyond belief. I had extended at airport before, hassle free. Anyway from now I rather go to Immigration in the city, and extend there. Their service are excellent, minus waiting a few hours, of course. Maybe I was the first to experience this, maybe not. Anyway, be prepared to proof your income source, if you are a frequent visitor, and want to extend at airport. I now also bring a print out, of my bank account deposit and withdrawals, from my home country.
