    if this hasn't been mentioned yet, here it is . . it is no big deal:  

     

    He can get a 1-year permit of Stay by applying for a multi entry Non-Imm-O visa based on the marriage to a Thai,  on the consulates in Savannakhet, Laos, or in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam,

     

    WITHOUT any proof of finances.

     

    All he has to do on this visa, is a border run every 90 days

     

    end of story

    Using a M/E visa gives 90 day stays NOT a "one year permit to stay" --

    No idea what you're talking about. Phuket immigration accepts proof of income from abroad. Your statement ' It is a fact that Phuket immigration will only accept 400K Baht in a Thai bank, income from employment(verified by Thai tax records) or an embassy letter which is no longer available to Australians, Americans  or Brits. ' is simply not correct.

    Do you live in Phuket and have you secured an extension based on marriage using monthly income from abroad? -- If not keep quiet 


  3. Mmm  - It sounds as 'tho this American guy was attempting to renew his marriage extension based on 40K+/month income from abroad. It is a fact that Phuket immigration will only accept 400K Baht in a Thai bank, income from employment(verified by Thai tax records) or an embassy letter which is no longer available to Australians, Americans  or Brits.

    If I apply for extension to visa on arrival,

    You do not qualify for a VOA but will be able to get a Visa Exempt entry which can only be extended at an immigration office. You will need a completed form + copies of your passport ID page, entry stamp and departure card. The cost is 1900 baht.

    I've been advised by a friend that all I need to do is go on holiday as normal and before the first 30 days is up just do a visa run to get the second 30 days, does that sound sensible?

    That would work but probably more expensive than 1900 Bht for an extension from an immigration office.
