Report: Successful retirement extension using monthly income, no consul letter

Recommended Posts

Assuming each transfer was at least 65k baht correct? Good info about the need for a bank letter in this instance. You had records going back 12 months. Many applicants this year won't because they are transitioning and imports were never required before for income method. Also of course this was not a combo application sans embassy letter.

 

Cheers.

Would it have made any difference if it WAS the combination method, eg 12 x 40k = 480k plus 320k in the bank?

You say you provided pension income documents... Do you think the Immigration officer wanted these?...

 

Was proof of pension docs required?

Theoretically not but this is new territory in enforcement as far as income based applications without embassy letters.

I failed to mention in my post that I also provided a copy of my yellow book (aka tabien baan). It's not listed as a requirement, but I threw it in the mix to document my "bona fides." The IO did not comment on it, and I probably won't bother including it next year.

In Pattaya we use the yellow book as proof of residence, did you include any other proof in your application?

No. Everything I submitted has now been listed above.
