I doubt a farang living in 3 mill home, truck, and 50k baht a month income is considered bankrupt but you are welcome to your opinion

That is my point.  If you have a 3 mill home get a secured low interest loan and put 800k in the bank.

OP's suggestions are not that outlandish. After the Farang has invested a few millions in property, why not take out a loan to finance Farang-Hubby's retirement visa extension if necessary?

Of course, it would show if "true-love" is present or the marriage was founded on "alternative" reasons.

Interesting post, agree with you and was wondering how many of the farangs who bought house car and other stuff for the ""loving"" wife will be willing to ask the question and not worry about the answer.... maybe we get lucky and some will post a true answer....happy valentine's day 555

That works too.  I was thinking of the married guys who don't want the hassle of the marriage extension rigamarole and use the retirement option.  

 

 

I don't the emphasis on "hassle" for the marriage extension........................ it's not complicated; whilst use the retirement option the paperwork savings are minimal.

I'm glad i'm not alone in observing this.

Aw come on.  Look at my posting history.  That is nor a reasonable idea.  Although why would you try and flame me as opposed to engage in meaningful debate?  Hmmm.  Now there is something to think about.

Sure it is.  Retirement takes 20 minutes and you get the extension then and there and can do it by yourself.  Taking a wife to immigration is an invitation for corrupt behavior and you have to draw maps and there are home visits and you get a conditional approval.  Many more steps and work.

800,000 is not a lot of money when talking about a house and land today in Thailand. 

upon reflection, I think this is a great idea. It should be listed as a unofficial requirement for married Farangs. no joke.

Maybe where you are..... but you are wrong as far as my location is concerned.

 

 

I had to draw a map and have a home visit for a retirement extension. I have had 3 visits in 7 years - new chief of Buriram immigration seemed to be concerned that they didn't know where their Farangs were......

The latter is not unusual...

As with many threads on Thaivisa, it would be interesting to know actual numbers. How many guys have spent all their money and are now short for the 800k/65k.

 

Interested to know what percentage of expats the thread is even relevant to.

 

In my broader circle of friends and acquaintance's, maybe 40 people, maybe 1-2 of them have spent all their money and dont have the 800/65k.
