Refused 1st Retirement extension

I bet this will be pretty common.

I just used the letter to get my extension and asked the guy what the new rules were.

Not one mention of the combo method. 65K / month 40K / month or 400K / 800K seasoned only was his reply.

Hopefully he just did not know about it yet.

Same message in Udon.

I have a friend in Phimai, he uses the Kasikorn as well, he was told by Korat immigration a couple of weeks ago while doing his 90 days, that the combination method wasn't an option and had to either have 800k seasoned or 65k a month going into his account every month, he will be reverting to a marriage visa as well, I did post that on here on another thread to inform people.  

Although that wasn’t an issue in my post thanks for reiterating that. Korat is one of the more amenable and friendly offices and your post just goes to further illustrate what a total mess this new income fiasco is going to become with confusion and misunderstanding all around. Totally predictable from the outset.

Thanks for reporting what happened and where.

Seems regulations 101 is needed for all locations to be on the same page.

The police rule and reports coming in are all fine and dandy.

I would not totally rely on it however and do not assume anything.

My suggestion is if you have an extension coming up this year go to your Imm. office prior and ask for a supervisor and tell them to explain what they will require.

As some have said there will be a lot of confusion by Immigration (and us) on this and offices may interpret things differently.

I had the same experience on Tuesday when I went to IO.

 

Ubonjoe have a look at my previous thread on IOs only using income letter once.

 

Agree it seems like there is some confusion of old and new rules.

I have already looked at it. I think it will all get sorted out shorley. I think they don't really understand the new rules yet.

Until all offices get it straight confusion will be the order of the day. Until all this is sorted those applying for extensions will get the brunt of the confusion
