New financial regulations for retirees: Nearly a third of expats may have to leave - but half on Facebook say they're off!

There seems to be a consensus that this will affect only western expats when in fact it affects retirees no matter which country they come from including China, a much bigger picture than most realize.

Chinese numbers are not big yet.  If it becomes huge which IMO is unlikely, the rules will adapt.

I personally know 8 Chinese who are on retirement visas so I guess the numbers are growing,and their media seem to think that retirees from certain countries are the main cause of the pending changes.

I think many COULD come back if they save resources.

 

Never thought there were so many on a shoestring here but 800k baht is not much money if you plan ahead

Depends on where you retire from. For a yankee that might not be much, but from high-income high-taxation country that might be your years pension in net 🙂

Not big? Didn't read the retirement part.
