i keep hearing that thai wants foreigners to come back to thailand. have you tried to apply for a long stay visa??its still a nioght mare and it  dont stop.little to no directions as to what is needed.samn check on  back ground thats been used for over 10 years is not a question about it being good enough.over 2  1/2 hours to fill out and down load all the paper work.its just crazy!! so far ive invested over $1,000 usd in my paper work and forms and no visa yet!!!!and this is after july 1st!!!something needs to be done.ive lived in thai over 10 years and never saw such restrictions to get a visa. hope they go back to mail in your visa request to your embassy and stop the e visa mess.im about ready to just give up.i love thai people and thailand but the govt is makeing it to hard  on long timers coming back.even i spend over one million baht each visit. so i hope its  made less troubles getting my visa.
