What Facebook poster?  Check it and if fake news have it taken off of Facebook.  Of course I suppose there is some reason that we can't know the name of the Facebook poster?

It is a member of a group that isn't a public group it's a closed group and because of that I'm not disclosing the posters name . I posted it here simply for information for others. Should it turn out to be false information then so be it. As I've posted a second person on that same thread has said that they were given that form as well.

Well, Jomtien is a well populated immigration so I’m sure someone can verify if this is actually happening or an elaborate hoax .

Anyone who read Jomtien's cut/paste of the TM-28 + TM-30 rules, to try to justify making the TM-30 the foreigner's responsibility, would not expect much in terms of documents from them.  

 

And lest we forget the doc the Non-O stamp lady in that office invented and was using for awhile - the one where income-qualifications was entirely absent, and seasoning had been added to the money-in-the-bank option.

 

The OP's experience + document would seem to confirm, in part, what an agent relayed through a member a few weeks back:

Maybe it's all just a bunch of "fake news" for some unexplained reason - but I doubt it.  Qui bono?

What is the difference?  It is fake news on Facebook and you are posting it on Thai Visa.  Forgive me but are you liable in any way for naming the group?

Which bank(s) locked your money that prevented you from making withdrawals, is it because of your bank loans outstanding ?
 
None. Next time read the post you're replying to.

So if this is true, will you have to come in later to show you haven't gone under 400K?

What if you do go under?

Are you instantly deported?

What if you're traveling outside Thailand at report time? 

If any of this is real, this is very disturbing. 

What about people on current extensions trying to LEAVE Thailand? That will be many of us.

Part of the leaving process is getting your money out of Thailand. 

Is our money a prisoner here now? 

Withdraw your money before your visa/extension expires and leave.  How is your money prisoner?

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 did mine today,    [ 2nd attempt. ]  3 copies of everything..

  yep ,90 day bankbook check.   how are the agents going to get around this ?   many worried expats in pattaya.

According to this report, will just cost more for the extra agent-visits to do the post-extension reporting:

... he admitted it will give him and the IO opportunity to charge twice maybe even four times with the 400 too 

he did not know what the fee would be but suggested it might be in line with 90 day ED visa reports

Did they give you a document with the return date stamped? Can you possibly take pic and upload document so everyone can see what is look like? Thanks, kindly...

They are going to have problems unless they have someone inside immigration.

Or unless the agents / IO's find a workaround,,

 Spoke to three agents last week, they said no idea what will happen after march.

If they can do it will certainly cost more money with 90 day checks,,,, no more 12,900 baht retirement visas.

Time will tell.

Not fake news. You are now given a date to return in 3 months to again show your updated bank book and prove the 800k remains untouched.

You ever been to CW? 

3 months to return an report to which desk. For last time 90 day report has ZERO do do with new requirements. Apart from that...what about all those traveling. Not all of us park a## in los 365.
