Renewing extension of stay based on marriage

Recommended Posts

My extension of stay based on marriage is due to expire 29th of March 2019. 

 

I thought that the requirement was to have 400K for 2 months before applying. Someone told me that it is actually 3 months. I've been searching for this on Google and many websites are saying 2 months for the renewal, some sites say 3 months. I don't know what to believe.

 

How soon do I need to topup my account with my extension expiring late March? Can I wait until January or do I need to do it now?

 

Thank you

It is 2 months.

 

There have been reports in the past of some offices insisting on 3 months, but the standard is 2.

 

It’s 3 months for a retirement extension.

I have to renew my visa extension in Bangkok based on marriage shortly and I have a list of documents that I think I need (from immigration site with a few documents I added from other sources) although Im still unsure and I would appreciate any help to clarify..

 

List of documents:

 

1. Application form TM 7
2. Copy of applicant’s passport
3. Copy of marriage certificate, household registration certificate, kor ror 2 (dated within 6 months)
4. Copy of Thai spouse national ID card, copy of household registration certificate
5. Bank Statement certified by the bank in Thailand on the day of application and a copy of a bankbook showing 400k in bank for 2 months.
6. An affidavit must also be submitted confirming the alien’s marital status
7. Kor Ror 2 (dated within 6 months) from ampur in province where married
8. Photos in living room, bedroom, in front of house with house number 

9. Hand drawn map to house not a Google map)

10. 1 x Passport photo (to glue to the application form with those glue sticks similar to those used at school)

 

I noticed that the immigration website doesn't ask for photos and kor ror 2 dated within 6 months or a map, are these required for extension based on marriage?

 

I have a small business overseas and also a small business in Thailand with my wife but if I mention the Thai business I assume they will ask for all the additional documents that go along with that also which is just more work to get copies for..

 

..I have 400,000 baht in an account for 3 months already to be sure although will I be OK to say that I bring money with me from overseas from my business overseas and not mention my Thai business or will I need to mention both? 

 

I suppose this will depend whether immigration ask if I work in Thailand or not and so should I prepare documents to show the 400k AND to prove that I work in Thailand also t save multiple journeys to immigration? Or should just showing the 400k suffice?

 

Also it mentions an affidavit must also be submitted confirming the alien’s
marital or status with a Thai national. Do I need to pay a lawyer for this or is there a basic letter/template that is used maybe? 

 

Any information shared to confirm the above would be appreciated.

The will not ask where your 400k baht in the bank came from.

You will need to hold the the 400k baht in the bank during the 30 day under consideration period you will have after your application is accepted that is new requirement at Chaeng Wattana. You will be asked to show your update bank book when you go back to get your one year extensions stamp.

That will be done at immigration as statement when you submit your application. Your wife will need to complete it and then you both sign it.

The immigration website only lists the requirements shown in the police orders.

Most of the rest is mostly to prove you are living together as husband and wife and other local requirements.

You can look at my general list of paperwork and etc. Marriage Extension Requirements 2.pdf
