Anyone fancy clarifying the requirements for those "retired less than one year". It doesn't make much sense to me. If you retire in Oct 18, and apply Oct 18 then they will take the Nov 18 Income, but thats in the future?@ubonjoe tapatalk_1546857984357.jpeg.d4610dc881c5bc8683334d923ce3088d.jpeg

"That would mean it's valid until May 31, 2018."

 

I presume you mean May 31 2019 ?

Yes, that was a scrivener's error on my part. It should read 31 May 2019. I didn't catch the error in time to edit my original post. The Income Affidavit (e.g., income letter) I received/executed/notarized at the US Embassy on 30 November 2018 was represented to me by an officer to be valid for 6 months and will therefore expire on or about 31 May 2019. I just want to be 100% certain Thai Immigration will still accept this evidentiary document when I make my application for renewal this coming March 2019. My current Retirement Visa expires on 31 March 2019.

Been using Baht Smart for some time now for my AUD transfers. My KBank statements shows these funds coming from a variety of sources. eg.

DUMMY BRANCH

Chang Mia Branch

Head Office

Etc

Nothing actually showing an international transfer.

 

So what now???

You still have to other ways - like 800K in a bank and agent. If you only want to do it your way or highway, you may have to look for other option. TIs not going to entertain your way only. Sorry.

In my earlier post #3, I stated I use money in bank method. The post you replied to is how the money gets to the Thai bank a/c. My last deposit of 800k up was early 2018. 

1 aud approx 26baht. Now its below 23baht. My first post in thread was referring to income methods seems to require monthly transfers. Very costly IMO. Perhaps read the thread.

The way I read it, it only applies for those who can't get the embassy letter to confirm there income. Right?

Yes

That is still shown in the other police order 327/2557.

"(5) Must have an annual earning and funds deposited with a bank totaling no less than Baht 800,0000 as of the filing date."

Not mentioned the police order that has been amended since you still have to prove the income for it.

I go for 1

Well, I guess it could be both.  But 1 is sort of immutable, not much you can do to fix that.  2 would have been a very easy fix.  And if 2 had been taken care of like I believe it should have been then we might have seen less 1. 😉

So the existing "money in Thai bank" 800/400, still continues and the changes only concern expats using "income, combo"?

BTW...personally I use money in the bank. I would not be happy now showing monthly income. Like many others, I have income from rentals, super/shares etc. Do not qualify for pension, because of super fund/assets. Would certainly not like the changes to replace embassy SD.

If you are from USA or Aus, it HAS replaced the SD as you call it. The UK never did SDs.
