Mistake with the 800K - went to 799K for 3 days

when I had missed 90-day report, and thus technically on overstay, I pointed out my error to the passport officer when leaving BKK, and explained how that could happen, and asked his advice. He concluded: "no overstay". 
Same tactic may work here. 
if male officer blame the guilty in a joke, if female blame yourself, language problem.

When I did last renewal a few months back, I was advised that it would be wise to put a few Baht extra on the account because there had been cases where bank charges caused a low balance, and this office was refusing the extension.

That was my intention but after placing a few thousand over 800K on account the exchange rate become even worse, so I have been waiting for a slight improvement before sending over more, as a buffer.  Mistake.  I have now transferred more,  but it hurts at this rate of exchange.

Started bad and wrong.....90 day reports and your permission to stay date are independent.

You have to show a monthly income of about 100 Bahts a month...

I assume you mean the combination method? Why not indeed, I believe the lump sum doesn't have to be seasoned in that case.

It depends upon how pedant the officer approving your application is.

One baht under for 3 days out of 3 months or more shouldn't really be a problem.

It's 1K Baht...… but maybe Imm will gloss over that. OP needs to speak to them.

I'm not that stupid. I'll send her an e mail.  😃

So taking her name off the account is a non-starter then?

Pilotman is going to explain to Mrs. P she is in error? A braver man than I am.

Get Mrs P to talk to the Immigration Officer to explain HER mistake - they may be more sympathetic to a fellow citizen.

Better still, go to an agent. No new regulations with them. Business as normal

she is not on the account, she just has an ATM card for it, as do I.  We use the account for day to day expenses.  I will now split off the 800K into a separate account.  Joking apart, It was a genuine mistake on her part as she knows how important the 800K is.

My last renewal was in December, before the new rules went into effect.  When does the 800k rule kick in for me?

Stay, stand and fight like a man, running away never solved anything.

Leaving Thailand isn’t running away, it’s upgrading.

 

Unless you’re going to Cambodia, then it’s a downgrade.
