  1. This post is an excerpt of a longer article. How to get a retirement visa for Thailand The first obstacle to entering any country is getting a visa. Fortunately, retiring to Thailand is so popular that there is a specific visa classification for that. The Non-Immigrant O (“Other”) visa covers a number of reasons for entering the Kingdom, as the name suggests, and one of them is retirement. To qualify for a retirement visa, you need to meet two basic requirements: You must be at least 50 years old You must have proof that you can financially support yourself You can either have a monthly income of 65,000 baht Or you must have 800,000 baht in a Thai bank account For the 800k option, you need to be able to prove that the money has been in your account for at least two months before applying for the visa. You must also still have at least 400,000 baht in your account for at least three months after you get the visa. In other words, you need to actually have the money – you can’t just borrow it for a few days to meet the visa requirements. The visa will need to be renewed annually and you’ll still need to meet these requirements each time. Sadly, once you’ve got the visa, your interactions with Thai government officials are only just beginning. You need to add in the requirement to report to an Immigration office every 90 days. The so-called “90-day report” is a bit of a chore, during which you need to wait around a government office for however long it takes you to get to the front of the queue just to hand in a couple of forms to keep the Immigration Department updated on your current address. However, given that you can spend the intervening 89 days sipping beers on a beach in Thailand, four days of hassle per year is a small price to pay. In terms of actual paperwork required, you will need to submit the following: Visa application form, completely filled out Passport or travel document with at least 18 months of validity remaining Recent passport-sized photograph (3.5 x 4.5 cm), taken within the past 6 months Evidence of adequate finances (as stated above) Proof that you have retired Applying for the Non-Immigrant O visa isn’t too difficult and you can find companies in Thailand who are very willing and able do the legwork for you. Given that government business in Thailand is naturally handled in Thai, using one of these services is recommended as they can make communication a lot easier, smoothing any bumps in the process far quicker than you could doing it on your own. They know how to retire in Thailand from having handled the process dozens of times before – potentially hundreds of times. As such, none of it will come as a surprise to them. While the requirement of an income when you’re supposed to be retired does seem a little counter-intuitive, to say the least, this can take the form of a pension or passive income. In fact, since you can’t work on a retirement visa, it can only come in those forms. You’ll therefore need to set up a means of regularly transferring money into the country. Getting money into Thailand Photo by Vitaly Taranov / Unsplash Fortunately, while transferring money out of Thailand can be a challenge, getting it into the country is relatively easy. There are various options available for transferring your pension into the country, starting with the obvious option of getting it paid into a bank in your home country and then getting it wired into Thailand. The quickest and simplest approach is to use a remittance service as the fees are lower, the transfer is instant and the exchange rate is excellent. Using a bank transfer is also possible, but is slower and generally less cost-effective. The downside with either of these options is that you will still be paying tax on your income in your country of origin, despite the fact that you’re not living there. If you’re looking at how to retire in Thailand from the UK, it’s worth looking into QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme), which may enable you to relocate your pension to Thailand so that it pays out directly into your Thai bank account. However, retirees from other countries may have to look into private pension schemes and particularly into the regulations regarding how they pay out. The cost of living in Thailand The good news is that 65,000 baht per month (or an 800,000 baht lump sum) goes a very long way in Thailand, particularly if you pick where to retire to with a degree of care. Bangkok, Phuket and Koh Samui are among the more expensive places to live while Pattaya, Chiang Mai and Hua Hin are among the cheapest. Each has its own distinct environment, as well as its own benefits and attractions. When it comes to figuring out the numbers behind how to retire in Thailand, your exact cost of living will depend very much on how and where you choose to live. However, we can use Bangkok as a general guide: A comfortable one-bedroom apartment = about 10,000 baht per month Utilities (including internet, phone, water and electricity) = about 2,500 per month Food (eating mostly local food) = about 100 baht per day Food (eating mostly foreign food) = about 300 baht per day 1 beer = about 100 baht, depending on the brand and where you buy it Comprehensive medical insurance = about 6,000 baht per month One of the things that’s going to come as a surprise to you is the things that cost a lot of money and the things that don’t. As imported goods are heavily taxed, you might find yourself paying two or three times what you would on something as simple as a potato compared to its cost in your country of origin. On the flip side, goods produced in Thailand are significantly cheaper than they would be overseas. So, for example, you might find that the amount you spend on new clothes is minuscule, but the amount you spend on food skyrockets. The easiest way to reduce the impact of this is to stick to the local stuff which, with Thai food having an amazing reputation for flavourful dishes, isn’t that hard. A further point that’s worth noting here is that, as the baht strengthens, the cost of living relative to your native currency will increase. This can become a problem if you’re planning to live off a pension which is regularly transferred into the country from overseas. Currency fluctuations could result in significant changes to your budget from one month to the next. This post is an excerpt of a longer article from DeeMoney, Thailand’s payment provider.

  7. Turkish Passport Through Citizenship-by-Investment Starts at USD 250,000 Considering the increasing desire of people to grow their mobility possibilities, the world of Citizenship-by-Investment (CBI) is in constant evolution. In the last year or so, Europe has done nothing but follow this trend. New programs were launched to provide individuals around the globe with mobility options. New programs like Moldova (suspended since), Montenegro (October 2019) and the Turkish Citizenship by Investment (TCBI or Turkey CBI) programs have drawn attention to investors from everywhere with Turkey CBI being the most sought after, not only because it is a new – while already tested – program, but also because it is one of the quickest and cost-efficient programs granting citizenship in comparison to its current competitors. Providing access to travel to over 110 destinations visa free and enabling Turkish citizens to apply for the U.S. E-2 visa, the TCBI has seen a significant increase in popularity since its introduction by the Turkish Government with the amendments to the Turkish Citizenship Law in September 2018, where the minimum real estate investment for obtaining citizenship was reduced to USD 250,000. Indeed, according to a report from the Turkish Ministry of Interior’s General Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs, as of June 30th, 2019, a total of 981 main applicants from a large selection of countries, including Canada, U.S., China, Italy and Australia, were successfully granted the Turkish citizenship through investment in the country since the start in 2017. Turkey CBI allows the investor’s spouse and children to qualify automatically. There is no requirement to reside in Turkey or speak Turkish. All applicants shall, among others, have a clean background and a clean criminal record, and never entered or stayed illegally in Turkey. The average processing time is from 3 to 6 months. Why Turkey? A country of sun and history, Turkey occupies a unique and strategic geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe, it is also at the crossroad of Africa. It is among the largest countries of the region in terms of territory and population, and its land area is greater than the one of any other European state. Considering its geographical emplacement, Turkey is the closest country to Asia offering a Citizenship-by-Investment program. In terms of mobility, the Turkish passport grants visa-free access to travel to over 110 destinations, including Japan, Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil and over 25 African countries. It also provides ease of acquiring travel visas to the EU, U.S., Canada and Australia. Furthermore, the Turkish citizenship enables investors to apply for the U.S. E-2 visa limited only to certain countries’ nationals. Indeed, Turkey being one of about 82 countries maintaining a treaty of commerce and navigation with the U.S (a ‘‘treaty country’’) allowing their nationals to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. Turkey is also one of the few treaty countries offering a Citizenship-by-Investment program. In 1987, Turkey applied to join what was then the European Economic Community, and in 1997 it was declared eligible to join the EU; accession negotiations started in 2005. More recently, on June 18th, 2019, the European General Affairs Council adopted conclusions on enlargement and stabilization and association process, covering Turkey. The conclusions were also endorsed by the European Council thereafter. With roughly 80 million inhabitants, Turkey is a modern European country with a picturesque and diverse landscape. Ranked 43rd in the Ease of Doing Business index from The World Bank, Turkey is newly listed as a world-renowned medical tourism destination. While there is no requirement to reside in Turkey or speak Turkish for the citizenship program, as Turks have developed a global reputation of friendliness, being welcoming to strangers and putting emphasis on strong family values and friendship, a journey to Turkey would make a meaningful experience to anyone.

  11. Turkish Passport Through Citizenship-by-Investment Starts at USD 250,000 Considering the increasing desire of people to grow their mobility possibilities, the world of Citizenship-by-Investment (CBI) is in constant evolution. In the last year or so, Europe has done nothing but follow this trend. New programs were launched to provide individuals around the globe with mobility options. New programs like Moldova (suspended since), Montenegro (October 2019) and the Turkish Citizenship by Investment (TCBI or Turkey CBI) programs have drawn attention to investors from everywhere with Turkey CBI being the most sought after, not only because it is a new – while already tested – program, but also because it is one of the quickest and cost-efficient programs granting citizenship in comparison to its current competitors. Providing access to travel to over 110 destinations visa free and enabling Turkish citizens to apply for the U.S. E-2 visa, the TCBI has seen a significant increase in popularity since its introduction by the Turkish Government with the amendments to the Turkish Citizenship Law in September 2018, where the minimum real estate investment for obtaining citizenship was reduced to USD 250,000. Indeed, according to a report from the Turkish Ministry of Interior’s General Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs, as of June 30th, 2019, a total of 981 main applicants from a large selection of countries, including Canada, U.S., China, Italy and Australia, were successfully granted the Turkish citizenship through investment in the country since the start in 2017. Turkey CBI allows the investor’s spouse and children to qualify automatically. There is no requirement to reside in Turkey or speak Turkish. All applicants shall, among others, have a clean background and a clean criminal record, and never entered or stayed illegally in Turkey. The average processing time is from 3 to 6 months. Why Turkey? A country of sun and history, Turkey occupies a unique and strategic geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe, it is also at the crossroad of Africa. It is among the largest countries of the region in terms of territory and population, and its land area is greater than the one of any other European state. Considering its geographical emplacement, Turkey is the closest country to Asia offering a Citizenship-by-Investment program. In terms of mobility, the Turkish passport grants visa-free access to travel to over 110 destinations, including Japan, Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil and over 25 African countries. It also provides ease of acquiring travel visas to the EU, U.S., Canada and Australia. Furthermore, the Turkish citizenship enables investors to apply for the U.S. E-2 visa limited only to certain countries’ nationals. Indeed, Turkey being one of about 82 countries maintaining a treaty of commerce and navigation with the U.S (a ‘‘treaty country’’) allowing their nationals to be admitted to the United States when investing a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. Turkey is also one of the few treaty countries offering a Citizenship-by-Investment program. In 1987, Turkey applied to join what was then the European Economic Community, and in 1997 it was declared eligible to join the EU; accession negotiations started in 2005. More recently, on June 18th, 2019, the European General Affairs Council adopted conclusions on enlargement and stabilization and association process, covering Turkey. The conclusions were also endorsed by the European Council thereafter. With roughly 80 million inhabitants, Turkey is a modern European country with a picturesque and diverse landscape. Ranked 43rd in the Ease of Doing Business index from The World Bank, Turkey is newly listed as a world-renowned medical tourism destination. While there is no requirement to reside in Turkey or speak Turkish for the citizenship program, as Turks have developed a global reputation of friendliness, being welcoming to strangers and putting emphasis on strong family values and friendship, a journey to Turkey would make a meaningful experience to anyone.
