You are under consideration until your application is approved or refused, regardless of the original renewal date.

So a person is allowed to stay until his application is approved, what happens if it is refused wrt permission to stay. Obviously the past one is  history now.

If it is not approved a person would be granted 7 days to leave the country.

Very few are disapproved since if there is a problem they contact the applicant to get it sorted out..

Transferwise does not always show in your statement or bank book as international transfer. Be careful.

No one I know has been able to find a bank or credit union in America that will do ACH transfers in IAT format. I think SSA can do it. Otherwise you have to use SWIFT wire to BKKNY in order to get it here. Don’t convert the money to baht before you send it if using international swift. It costs a lot more.

Many discussions on this topic.

Can confirm teetersb's comment about  Kap Choeng tried for marriage extension based on income and got the same response. No 400k no get. Full proof of income over 40k per month was provided in the form of bank statements and letter from the bank, all deposits were from outside Thailand and clearly marked as such on the statements and were a pension but they were just not interested as far as they are concerned it is 400k only. Very frustrating that even when you do it the right way you can still get shafted.

Perhaps they need to be shown the amendment to the police order allowing it. Or somebody needs to call 1178 about the problem.

I assume you are from a country that cannot get proof of income from your embassy now.

The IO pointed me to a document at the front door that showed the first page of the Thai Police order, but I didn't see the 2nd page. the first page says 400 k Baht, the 2nd page shows the 40 kB. I printed  the order out that you provided in another thread, to take but have decided the IO would lose face if I tried now, so I will go to Savanakhet next Tuesday. I will try again in 6 months or so.

   Ubonjoe could you please provide a link to the thread about Savanakhet? I have been searching everywhere, but can only find excerpts. I need to plan it now, because I am going to Khorat on Sunday.

Showing them the amendment to the police order is for the braver than me and to be honest I think  it would be of little use because of the loss of face issue..

 

I am from a country which no longer provides proof of income and I also made sure I had a full 12 months worth of statements backed up by proof of the source of the pension, they are just not interested in looking.

 

I will use another route but as I said before it just sits uncomfortably when you know you meet the requirements in full and others can get what they want by using agents while not meeting the legal requirements. But as has been said many times before we choose to live here and have to play by their rules.

Have they given the same response to retirement extensions based on income?

They may not be aware of the amendment, or they just can't, or don't know, or be bothered to check bank statements.

 

I total agree with Joe, sometimes you have to make a stand.

Ring the advice line on 1178 or the Hotline on 1155.

Then ring 1178 or 1155 (English speaking).

They'll speak to the office.

 

Actually if you challenge them without belittling or embarrassing them, they show greater respect.

   Well, yesterday i went to Korat immigration and talked to them about the Kap Choeng Immigration office situation and as others here on TV have said, they were very helpful. They told me that if I bring them a 1 year Bank report showing my International transfers they will verify it and call the Kap Choeng office and tell them they must process the Visa.

   RE; gregsmithy. I don't have time to do that now and I am on my way to Savannakhet today to do the ME Visa tomorrow. I will let you know how that goes when I return to Surin on Friday.

Thanks for the info from Korat it's good to know. Good luck at Savanakhet sounds easy, but looks like long queues because of so many getting tourist visas.
