Yes. Absolutely needed. 400k on the day with no withdrawals

Not in Uttaradit Imm.

 

Got mine this morning and updated book in preparation. Waste of time as not asked for.

 

In and out in 5 minutes. 🙂

No, for an Ext based on marriage you can start to spend once you get the extension. You will need the 400k seasoned for 2 months prior to next application. 

Exactly, BUT they will make up stuff as they go along. Forget the police order, forget what's there in black and white .................."New rule, new rule." 🙂

1 week after handing my documents in at Buriram immigration for my extension based on marriage my wife had a call from the IO and was asked to bring 1 more photocopy of her ID card and 1 more copy of the kor tor even though we supplied 2 copies of everything, then 1 week later another call asking for a bank statement having now made 3 trips to immigration I have to return again in 2 weeks to obtain the extension it will be a total of 800k driving, I think it will be best to update my bank book on the way there or I could be clocking up 1000k, envious of you guys who live close to your immigration office.

Yeah the last time I went to collect mine at Chang Watthana they asked to see my bank book which I didn't have with me. So they just asked that I get a photocopy of an ATM receipt from the account which was a then few thousand below 400k but they were fine with it.

At CW, it is as described above (several reports, now).  You are using a different office, with a different way to jerk us around for marrying a Thai. 

 

For HH people, it would be good to know what the 2nd bank letter was all about.  You already provided a bank letter with the initial application - correct?  And you were using the 400K "in the bank seasoned 2 months" method?

Yes 1st  letter on application, I'm not sure what the second letter was  for as my Wife did it and shes currently in  Japan, Ill ask her later when I speak to her.I  think it was to confirm who I am and how long  Ive had  the acc how  long  money had been in there and when money went in and  out , all seems  rather stupid as bank  book and previous  letter show everything.

400k seasoned etc

hi there

 

finally I get my VISA extension at CW Immigration; 6 hours door-to-door including commutes !  at the counter L8, one officer, 1 staff and 1 intern, waited 1.5 HOURS for the ticket #6.  in the past it used to be 15 to 20 minutes.

 

the staff said following documents are required :

1) arrival form TM6, shown less than 90 days, otherwise

2) the receipt of the 90-days reporting

3) the ORIGINAL bankbook, updated today

4) photocopy of the bankbook updated, the first and the 'today' pages

 

I asked there were bank letter and bankbook copies in the application; she said 'AGAIN'.

 

after 1.5 HOURS, the VISA Extension was granted on my passport, and my bankbook was tied in between by a rubber bang.  seems they go through it seriously.

 

 

put these in your checklist, and BE PREPARED

A copy of the TM6 departure card has always been required for extension applications.

Not sure what you mean by that.

hi Ubonjoe

 

this is the case that the CW staff asking for above 4 documents 'AGAIN' at PICKING UP the VISA extension; not at the application.

 

staff checks if the TM6 expired the 90 days; otherwise you may need a receipt of the 90-days reporting.

That is fairly new and is only at Chaeng Wattana immigration. 

They have been informing applicants recently about the requirement after the application is accepted.

Just had to do it in Mukdahan for Marriage Extension too

Would it kill Thai Immigration to just have one set of rules, a set everyone follows, this stuff is getting ridiculous!

You should have an entry stamp in your passport that is less than 90 days and a departure card or you should have done a 90 day report in which case you would have a 90 day report notice from immigration stapled in your passport. Did you not have one or the other in your passport when you picked it up?

you are right - either TM6 < 90 days, or 90-days reporting receipt stapled.  after two cases the hotel and myself lost the TM6, then I keep the TM6 together with all the Immigration documents, but not with the passport.

 

not a good idea going to Immigration though.
