My name is Jim Davis from Johannesburg South Africa. I will shortly be retiring to Thailand. I am a computer scientist by profession, and in a long term relationship with a Thai lady who currently lives with me in my home country.
I can speak some Thai, and have a townhouse in Bangkok. I visit Thailand regularly. (2/4 times each year).
While I am fairly familiar with Thai conditions, spending short periods in a country is not the same a permanently residing there. I also wish to immigrate my two Dachshunds.
I would appreciate it if a retired expat would advise me of the the pitfalls that I may encounter.
