  1. Check the Thai embassy in your country for info on financial requirements. You don’t need money deposited in Thailand in order to apply. That comes later. However, you’ll need to show bank statements from your home country to establish that you meet the required threshold of financial stability. Again...check with the embassy for details on this.
  2. Consider buying new...from a reputable builder. I bought in a development built by Land and Houses and it came with a one year guarantee on everything...and a five year guarantee on structure.

All for a tube of ointment that was included in the shipment (from USA) that was ultimately deemed to be medicine and forbidden from entering. The bulk of that time was spent waiting for the actual inspection of goods by the food and drug division. Pre-covid I shipped these types of items regularly with no problem clearing customs......done in a day. I think the volume is now so low that th
