They will accept it if it is 40k baht or more coming in every month.

I am currently on a retirement extension of stay with more than 65K baht coming in every month. My comment was regarding reports that some immigration offices are not accepting the bank statement methods of proving income.

They will now since the new rules came out last month.

Can you please cite an use case (except this one. The gentleman is able to get his letter) when "income in the bank" method was not accepted

Be nice if by the first quarter the embassies start the letters again. I for one would be happy to show proof of the income stated in the letter. 

I can bet it's not gonna happen.

Sounds fair to me.

Fair enough if that is what T.I. means in their new directives.

 

Or is it an interpretation by one office/officer ?

 

We may read here soon other different interpretations by other offices/officers.

So let's get this straight. If your Embassy will still issue a letter you must go there. If your Embassy WILL NOT issue a letter, your bank and the IO do it. 

They will, If you have pension in Norway the Embassy or Consulate in Thailand make the pension letter.

Would that mean that the monthly transfers of 40/65000 system is only accessible for the 4 countries which can not obtain a L. o. I. anymore?

Or the interpretation of 1 officer? 

 

 

 

Probably the latter.

For those still able to get the income letter from your embassy, use it, but even so start accumelating proof of transferring money from abroad into a Thai bank account.

There seems to be more change in the air, I gather.

Seems to me the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing,,, what’s the use in having the Laws if imagration can just make it up as it goes,,,,bottom line is they want your money in thai banks so the country can use it...letters and pension plans mean nothing to this goverment,,I suggest moving to Vietnam it’s much simpler,,no headaches and they love american money there,,,,Trust me if enough leave here the rules will change and change quickly..

 Hear something funny I think the same papers to immigration to get an extension on my OA retirement visa and they say they won’t give me an extension but is the same papers that I sent to the Thai consulate in Los Angeles to get the visa to start with now explain that to me why the paperwork is good at the Thai consulate out of the country but the same paperwork is not acceptable To imagration here in thailand to extend a retirement visa? The system is crookeded,,,that’s all it is,, I will not put that kind of money in a thai bank account no way,,my bank is much more secure in the states,,changing to a tourist visa and will just make border runs...

O-A Visa that you get in your home country and

Retirement/Marriage Extension that you get in Thailand

are 2 totally different things.

Why should they require the same documents? :unsure:

How many are you thinking of? Do you really believe the exit of a few hundred expats, if that happens, will affect Thai immigration laws? What is Thai immigration concerned about? ANSWER: Tourism.
