How many more times must people be told!!

Some people still expect the rules will be adapted to suit them particularly.

I read these threads re visas and think that I must have had an incredibly charmed run in the last few years to have had zero issues renewing a visa and zero problems at immigration offices in general (aside from pushy Chinese trying to shove in line when turning up at 8am). I've found the Chiang Mai immigration people to be getting better rather than worse. 

 

I genuinely do feel sorry for those among us having these issues though, I imagine the stress of wondering if you qualify for next visa or not could be pretty overwhelming.

'A copy of bank statement showing a deposit of the amount equal to and not less than 800,000 Baht or an income certificate (an original copy) with a monthly income of not less than 65,000 Baht, or a deposit account plus a monthly income totalling not less than 800,000 Baht.'

 

To all those who smugly quote the Immigration link (extract above).

 

I cannot keep 800,000 in a Thai bank.

 

I can show more than this with a UK Income tax statement for the year. (Would this pass muster?)

 

I can show a million baht entering Thailand during the course of a year in four or more Transferwise foreign deposits to my Bangkok bank BUT NOT MONTHLY. 

Is this allowed?

I don't need to smugly do anything, you can read as well as anyone else! Comply or seek alternatives.

Hi, yes we’re talking with Immigration just now on a number of issues, not only on regarding retirement visas.

 

We’ll bring you news about it as soon as we can.

 

Your post here is a bit perplexing because just in the past 24 hours, UbonJoe posted, in response to a question, that ThaiVisa had been attempting to set up a meeting with BJ and had received no response to those entreaties...

 

Unless you're talking about the difference between a meeting with BJ himself vs. you talking about being in talks with other Immigration officials of some sort.

 

Can you clarify just what is or isn't going on and at what level?

Almost certainly not. You need to make monthly transfers. Just send your money monthly instead and your problems solved.

Grumpy this morning.  What is wrong with asking the questions I did?  Tax cert - yes or no?  Four transfers instead of 12?

The IO who said that my transfers into Kasikorn from Transferwise were OK, was emphatic about transfers being EVERY month...... so no, you will fall foul of the new system.

Thank you - a civil response at last.

Yes, pre-cuppa. :sorry:

It just seems futile to keep trying to lay down alternatives to the written requirements. Especially in this environment where even those are being wildly interpreted.

If we don't like what we hear, we can arrange a second or third meeting and get a different response the next time since they change each time the same question is asked. 

In other words, not too dissimilar to what some in the UK are currently advocating - with "referendum" being substituted for "meeting", of course!😆

A inflammatory off topic post has been removed.

Since the question the OP asked has already been answered this topic is now :mfr_closed1:
