Excellent summary and clarifications!  I don’t need to renew my retirement extension until the end of January 2020 but I started my monthly transfers this month so I should be set for next year. I already confirmed with my bank that they can provide the needed letter since the US Embassy doesn’t issue income letters.

My extension is also not due until the end of January 2020. Which bank do have your account with and is it necessary to provide a bank statement, or would a passbook be sufficient?

800,000 for 2 months before and three after total 5.

3 months before following renewel would total 8 months and leave 4 months at 400,000.  For subsequent years it would be 3 before and 3 after plus 3 before the next so 9 months at 800,000 and 3 at 400,000. You would have to have income for living during the 800,000 baht months obviously.

 The THB 8oo K

First year 2 months before applying and 3 months after  =  5 months 

next and years after 3 months before applying and 3 months after  = 6 months 

where do you get 8 and or 9 months from ? pulled them out off you're hat??

Depends if your passbook is updated regularly and the codes clearly reflect an overseas deposit. 

Even a local bank statement may not clearly define deposits as from a foreign source, because most transfers go through a separate channel before hitting your local account.

Immigration advised to get statements from the HQ of your branch.

 

This is something everyone is going to have to check with their own bank/branch.

4 weekly is fine, for one month you'll have 2 monthly deposits.

The UK pay the state pensions every 4 weeks.

But for 11 of the months the deposits could be less than 65K.

Read the thread, not just one post and you will see where I said oops.

It still means that on your first application and moving on to your second spreads over 14 months, not just 12.

2 before 3 after approval then 3 before your 2nd, with 6 months at 400,000, then for subsequent extensions it fits 6 and 6.

No, a minimum of 65K per month throughout the year.

Most Chinese aren't on retirement or marriage extensions.

Not yet... My guess is the rule changes we are seeing are preventative measure to the sunami of creative Chinese visa agents Thailand will see in the near future... :coffee1:

Thank you. That clears it up for the – unnamed – immigration office to whose officials you talked. Let's hope that the officials at other immigration offices have an equally good understanding and interpretation of the new procedures.

Excellent post, but I do not think that there will ever be a time when all Thai immigration offices

go by the same rules or interpretation of the rules.

It still isn’t consistent for retirees because by stipulating promises there are bound to be some IOs who will use that as reason to check that the promise has been kept during the period of the extension. Some posters have already suggested that this should be the case!
To be consistent every requirement should be something which can be proved. Immigration accepts that you had an income during the previous twelve months and grants an extension, there is no promise that you will continue to have it. Hitherto Immigration has accepted that you have had 800,000 Bt before and at the time of requesting an extension. If monthly nausea is to be avoided the extension should be maintained on that. Subsequent extensions are then still subject to past performance.
I know that this is logical but it has to be stated because it is not the logic that everybody will use.

If you mean an extension renewal this year, then leniency and discretion will be used, but I think there expecting the word to get around and would at least expect you to show some effort towards meeting the full requirement for 2020 renewals.

You still be required to show 800K in your Thai bank account for 3 months prior to your application this year anyway, unless your a first time applicant.

Discretion from a Thai IO can mean anything, absolutely anything.
