    The Prime Minster has not send a message that the process is open? Immigration has closed down all section on this topic. You can not get any application forms to complete. Immigration sometimes do not answer their phone either. If urgent, you might ring 1111 for help?

    Thank you

    This is incorrect. I started the application process at CW in Aug.

    Speaking Thai is maybe half of the points they count. But they just seem happy with very informal conversational Thai.

    This might have changed now 😕

    When I applied for PR in August, IO asked most questions in formal Thai.

    Probably the actual interview as well...

    Thanks Joe... I thought that was the case as well... and yes, I've apparently been asking the wrong people.  However, that would include the Royal Police Dept. in BKK too.  They're the ones who came up with the highest salary figure... go figure. 555

    I run a small tour company and though it is successful, I ain't paying myself a big salary. I don't need it or want it.  It seems to me, the fact that I pay my crew top wages should be more important to the authorities.

    I'll keep checking.  Thanks a LOT for your input, sir.  😉 🙏

    I am currently finalizing my PR application at CW, based on supporting a Thai national (my wife).

    No need to pay an agent, just me and my wife. Costs THB 7.600 application fee and THB 95,700 once PR has been granted.  Cost for translation, verification by embassy, etc. on top.    

    Details at http://bangkok.immigration.go.th

     

    Maybe its worth to see the IO handling PR at CW. Very friendly and helpful.

    My impression is that Immigration looking to help PR applicants not frustrate them.If you have the right salary/tax/visa backgroundand are reasonably riaproi, have a degree and speak basic Thai - you're probably going to get PR.

    I have the same impression. 
    IO was friendly, helpful, even assisted to keep the costs to a minimum.

    This link explains all requirements http://bangkok.immigration.go.th/en/base.php?page=residence 

     

    Very helpful team at CW are guiding me through. 

    Met the "big guy" who's office is literally upstairs, who suggested to improve my Thai skills for the actual interview in front of the panel. Conversation with IO and senior officer was in in Thai only. 

     

    Overall very friendly, understanding and without any pressure.  

     

    Successful candidates advised patience is of the essence, so confident all will be good.

  6. Hi guys,

    After shopping around I finally got a deal from Toyota Buzz, Bkg, financed through Thanachart Bank.

    30 % down and installments over 3 yrs WITHOUT any Thai guarantor.

    Just had to provide WP, Visa, salary slip, bank statement and a map of the location of my house.

    I'd would like to thank all of you who helped me with their advise.

    :o


  7. Hi Benny.

    Check out Bara Windsor. They have a number of locations around Bangkok. I found their staff to be extremely helpful. Ask them to give you information regarding financing from Toyota Leasing Thailand (TLT) and from other finance companies that they work with. One or more may not require or have a lower threshold for a guarantor.

    Enjoy your wheels.

    Hi ongcuunon,

    Thanks for your advise. I'll check with Bara Windsor.

  8. Toyota will give you finance with no garantor if you put down 25%. Or that was the case a few months back when I purchased my Hilux.

    Choppy

    Great news. Could you please give me the name/address of the dealer and name of the finace comapny? I shopped around here in the Pattaya region, and they all asked for a thai guarantor, when putting 30 % down.

    Thanks

    Hi benny,

    I done it through the main Toyota dealership in Chumpon. Maybe better you check out Bangkok - am sure you will have more luck there.

    Hi choppy,

    Thanks for your advise. At least I know it can be done. I'll shop at Bangkok.

  10. ^^ What makes you think he has one; a missus i mean?

    Thanks rixalex,

    You made the point. I don't want to aks any misses to co-sign. I try to avoid relying on a GF's help, I mean financial wise. What happens after a possible split off? I saw so many farangs getting in trouble after separting with their Thai wife/GF. So I try to keep finacial matters and personal issues separated.

  11. I just bought a Toyota Vios for 30% down with finance through TISCO at 2.75%. They wanted passport, WP, and 6 months of payslips. No guarantor needed, but at the last minute they asked my Thai wife (who doesn't work) to co-sign the loan.

    It's a bit like a person with a tourist visa trying to open a bank account - if one Honda dealer won't give you reasonable financing, just try another.

    Thank you for your professional feedback, which is very useful for myself.

    I highly appreciate people like you, who really focus on the question asked, as I am not interested in exchange rates of the US dollar, etc.

    Thanks again

  12. I plan to buy a new Toyota Vigo for around 610,000 baht, pay 25 % deposit, 36 months installments. All shops told me that I need to have a Thai guarantor, to get the credit approved. But I don't know any Thais in the Pattaya region, who would guarantee for that, even I have a good job here, plus decent income, work permit, work contract, etc.

    How can I find a Thai guarantor, or maybe a finance company that doesn't insist on that.

    The installments will be about 14,000 baht per month, how can a Thai with a monthly income of 8 - 10,000 baht guarantee for that anyway.

    Thanks for any professional advise.
