They said the chief had promised to make doing business in Thailand easier.

Right, such as burdening foreign residents with long-stay, non-tourist visas with reporting each and every time they leave and enter the country. 

 

Has it not occurred to K. BJ's Wizard IT team that they have that information already from customs/border control?

The Thai Visa member who posts as 'Love Thailande Lite' got into a spat with Ubon Joe a few days ago regarding just such a proposal.  LTL said that a new 'law' would be announced on 22nd April (I think that was the date he stated),Joe suggested that he felt there was no change in the works.... and now this.  Maybe LTL was right, I hope not.

wife gave me a rough translation regarding marriage and business visas/extension of stay:

800K in the bank for 6 months before application

 

quote from channel 7:

การเสนอแก้ พ.ร.บ.ตม. 2522 มีสาระสำคัญ 3 แนวทาง คือ การคัดกรองบุคคลที่จะเข้าประเทศ โดยเฉพาะการขออยู่ต่อ เพื่อเลี้ยงดูบุตร คู่สมรส หรือแม้แต่การทำธุรกิจ ซึ่งที่ผ่านมาเกิดปัญหาระบบนายหน้าและไม่ได้มีการคงเงินค้ำประกันในบัญชีตามเงื่อนไข 6 เดือน วงเงิน 800,000 บาท และยังมีความพยายามที่จะให้คนต่างด้าวอยู่อาศัย โดยไม่แจ้งการเข้าพัก ซึ่งที่ผ่านมาเจ้าหน้าที่แค่ตักเตือน แต่ใน พ.ร.บ.ตม.ฉบับแก้ไข จะมีการเพิ่มโทษผู้ให้แหล่งพักพิงโดยไม่แจ้งด้วย

 

i guess that will stem the flow of retirees to marriage visas.

 

the hits keep on coming..

There are also changes to business visas and extensions of stay based on people who have children or who are married to Thais. 

OK, get ready as now he is barking in my territory! Got a bad feeling about this.

I have been saying for months that long stay expats in Thailand are currently under siege. 

 

Most were mocking my comments.

 

But anyone that can't see what is afoot here is entirely deluded.

Well I've been here for nearly 20 years, never any problems, an occasional hic-up with paperwork but always easily sorted out to everyone's satisfaction. 

So what is under siege if you go with the flow. - - - start being a smart arse, try and pull a swifty you will rightfully have a problem.

Says absolutely nothing other than a load of waffle about doing "something" while reinforcing the blatant racism Thailand has towards black people.

With all due respect sir to your opinions and the black people in Thailand, so far most of the times when you hear about a nasty scams perpetrated by foreigners on both foreigners and Thai people , black people were somehow involved and big time, so black people in thailand has not endeared themselves in the eyes of the law nor the people of this country...

Maybe I'm deluded but at least I don't suffer from chronic paranoia. BJ is just trying to eradicate all the expats who acquire their extensions illegally or through the back door. The problem is in doing so they are  inadvertently going to tread on the toes of the expats who's applications are legal and above board.  

 

Its naughty school kid syndrome. One kid misbehaves and doesn't own up so the whole class gets punished.

That's what every group says just before their method of staying tightens up...

also mentioned an extra stamp on the extension with the officer's initials to trace the officer if things go bad but i think they have that already they just get an extra box to tick

Yep.  More crap to burn up even more pages in my passport.
