I have to go back on 4 June with my bankbook to show that the funds remain intact. A document they give you states that this is a requirement and only 3 months after your extension is issued can you touch the money!

I can’t beleive they are insisting on this. Ridiculous!

 

It implies that extensions will be cancelled if the balance drops below the 800K minimum.

Just extra admin for them when they could do it yearly instead. Maybe they are looking for tip opportunities if someone drops below 800k

Agreed, it does sound ridiculous, not being able touch your own money. But this is that the tactic that BJ has introduced to tackle the dubious and probably illegal activity of the agents. And their clients of course.
 
Maybe it will be withdrawn once they've all been dealt with.
 
 
Agents are just laying low for a little while, apparently

Just did my yearly visa extension at Immigration in Jomtien. Everything was in order but I have to go back on 4 June with my bankbook to show that the funds remain intact. A document they give you states that this is a requirement and only 3 months after your extension is issued can you touch the money!

Did they actually tell you that you had to come back? Or, are you assuming that based on the document they gave you? You stated that the document they gave you states that you have to come back in 3 mths to show them you still have the 800k in bank. Would you be so kind as to please upload the document they gave you for everyone's benefit.

Let's wait until OP responds to my question on whether they actually told him that he needed to come back on June 4 (in 3 mths) or whether he is interpreting that he does from the document they gave him. I asked him to please upload the document so it will benefit everyone.

Ubonjoe,

A report of someone saying they have to go back in 3 mths to show bank book showing 800k still in bank. I asked if Immigration told him he has to come back or whether he is just interpreting that from the document they gave him. No response yet... It would be nice to see the document if it indeed states you have to go back in 3 mths to show bank book. Kindly...

He didn't actually say they told him to come back, only that he has to go back on June 4 since the document says he has to have the money in the bank for 3 mths. Let's see if the OP will clear up the matter on whether they actually told him to come back and whether the document actually states he has to come back in 3 mths. I travel a lot myself and rarely have to do 90-day reports, so what will they do, check my bank book at the airport. Kindly...

Just curious @hereforgood... where did you get bigblubber's report document? Or, is this your report document? Was this for a first-time extension or a renewal?

Anybody notice he didn't post a copy of the document they gave him requiring him to come back.

 

I don't believe it.

From a Facebook page poster claimed this was given to him along with his extension and asked to return on the date at the bottom.
