I have a non Imm O visa applied for and recieved here in Thailand 2018. It will be coming up for renewal in 5 months. I have been using “search” function, but not getting all the information I need. This is for the straight renewal of an extension made for retirement in 2018 (not based on marriage). Trying to get my ducks in a row and hope someone could comment on my points ... thanks
A) The 800k does NOT need to be sent in from out of the country. Or a verified source, from outside Thailand. I could use transfer wise, all I need is 800 K in the account for the proper seasoning time. (I would want a wire, or swift transfer from foreign bank only to help wire money OUT of Thailand when at some future date I want to close out the account/visa.)
B) seasoning time, only 2 months before the time I make my application for extension at IO. NOW I am doing my extension at Chiang Mai and according to expats they want it 3 months ahead of application time. Given the information so far I assume that this is the prudent course of action.
C) I have an account at Krungthai bank that I use for expenses (ATM transfer for Condo rent etc) do I just dump the money in there OR should I take out a 2nd account and have that for just my retirement money? I guess that is more an opinion questions
D) I need to have a letter written by my bank within 7 days of application stating balance. I need to have an updated account balance. Making a deposit or withdrawal on the day of application. That is to show an updated passbook (?) or do I need a print out of it too? Can I do this at ATM or is this a Bank Office operation?
E) No questions a regarding the keeping of 800K in account afterwards for a couple months or the 400 k balance after that.
Thanks in advance for any responses, just trying to get my head around it all.
