I only know one bank that accepts " fluids "

Is it the Bank of Wife/Girlfriend/Boyfriend ?  🙂

Obtain by whatever legal means to get the required funds deposited in the bank. A 2/3 month loan wouldn't incur too much interest and can be taken out to repay as soon as the extension is granted. It's not rocket science😨

From a logical point of view,

 

Nah, forget that, I'll have another coffee and start again later.

"fluids", could that be tomato juice?

Joke aside, "Must have an annual earning and fluids deposited with a bank totalling no less than Baht 800,000 as of filing date" can't possibly be the correct translation from Thai, because what it says is that you must have an income and keep 800,000 in the bank.

Sorry but I do not read it like you do, maybe depends on some punctuation. It says that the earnings plus the deposits must total 800k, as most of us understand. It's called the Combination Method.

Sworn declarations were far too easy to abuse. I wouldn't be surprised to find that the original request by TI for greater scrutiny, was aimed at these embassies in particular.

 

The BE however, always required 2 documents to prove income before issuing the income letter. I'm unaware of anyone using forged documents to obtain their BE embassy letters, if there were any, I'm sure that it was a rare occurrence. As a number of other embassies, using similar if not identical means of verification, have continued to issue letters without any change of procedure, it's fair to assume that the BE had no real justification for discontinuing the issue of income letters.

 

As for the US and Australian Embassies, it would have been a fairly simple matter for them to change their requirements for proof of income to match the procedures of the British and other embassies, which would probably have satisfied TI and allowed them to continue issuing the letters.

Wasn't it the British embassy that first pretended that Thai Immigration wanted something new and they could not provide it and the US and Aussies just jumped on board to cut down on work load?

The 800k baht has been a requirement for retirement visas for years...the embassy income letters have been exposed as a farce...put the money in a Thai bank and move on...or just move.

Exactly, the embassy's cannot be expected to research into the honesty of applicants financial affairs and them no longer being part of what, was in many cases fraud, has been brought about by people not telling the truth.

Not a farce at all. We're willing to show income documents to either our embassy or Thai immigration.

Everyone was willing, the problem is many documents were fraudulent showing income people did not truly have.
