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.  

No you are missing the point entirely like most other members here on TV.

 

It is not about filtering good from bad.

 

It is about complete removal.

800k needed for marriage extensions may split up some couples next, as they probably won't be gradndfathered in at old 400k rate. This guy just does not let up.

Hate to say I told you so.  But...I told you so.  

 

Anyone want to continue mocking me now?

What visa changes happen or dont happen remains to be seen..But pretty much every visa change for years now has been for the worst.....And to make matters worse the word ''Grandfathering'' seems to be as extinct as the DoDo bird...The real question is what is how far do they really want to take all this?

Many of the ones who can still obtain a L.o.I. from their embassy, aren't at all. 

 

Addendum :

So far. 

 

LOL. The income method!  Why on earth do you think that will be maintained? It now requires actually work on behalf of immigration to check the details.  So for that reason alone it will be done away with.

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:
 

 

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

 

the hits keep on coming..

 

 

400,000 baht to 800,00 baht increase is ridiculous and preposterous. This is like handing down a death sentence for most in the married or based on children or family.

 

So based on the translation below I would say they got the 800k wrong and it is 400k not being increased. And I would think the bank funds they will just make it so you can't touch it like the retirees have at the moment. For that, it is no problem for me. But if that is truly the increase, then we are eating some more than foul crow by this out of control guy. 

 

It translate to something like this from a good online translator.

 

The proposed amendment of the 1979 Act has three important ways: screening people who enter the country. Especially requesting to stay For raising children, spouses or even doing business In the past, there was a problem with the brokerage system and there was no fixed deposit in the account according to the 6-month condition. The credit limit was 800,000 baht. Without notifying your stay In the past, officials only warned, but in the revised edition of the Immigration Act There will be an increase in penalties for the shelter without notice.

Big Joke seems to equate poor = bad and rich = good.  I guess it never occurred to him that a successful criminal might have no trouble showing enough money!

Wonder if Police clearance from home country is coming next for in country extensions.

You haven't been getting my memos have you?

 

The end point is your removal.

 

They can't just tell us to leave.  Too much bad publicity.

 

What they can do is make is logistically impossible for any of us to stay.

Easier, faster and more watertight =

 

  • 30 day reporting with full finger printing and facial scan on each occasion

Well you just forgot the urine and blood samples, with goes together with a mandatory drug test.

The medical history of the past 25 years.

A police record notarized by your embassy no older than 6 months.

A full list of all your social media accounts and e-mail adresses which will be verified at the spot.

In case of travelling, keeping all receipts of bus/boat/plane and taxis, as well as accommodation receipts for at least the length of your current visa. To facilitate the progress Tuk-Tuk and Songteaw are excluded if you can prove there was none of the other transport facilities available at time of travel.

 

Oh I could go on, but I'm too busy packing, Saturday morning I'm out. 🤣

Yes.  That is their intention.

If you think otherwise you are entirely deluded.

I'm sure they will nail the regional exeption way of 'no show money' method for marriage visas that is known soon as well. That consulate seems to be getting deluged by applicants of all sorts now as a side effect of Vientiane's online booking system being tied up by those consulate agents. Queues were cleared there after the first hour before, just walk up to the window....not now by the looks of things.

and after 800k for marriage, will it be 1.6 and 3.0 down the line as there is no correlation for inflation...a doubling overnight ?

My prediction is that they will increase the 800k to 3m at some point beyond the current changes. Why? This is what was the investment visa requirement was until they scrapped it. It was presumably felt to be too low and was a threshold literally anybody in EU/US who sold a house could qualify for. SO by the same token 3m is a threshold for non 'falang kii nok'  retirees.

 

Why did they lower age from 65 to 5t5/50?My guess is because they realised those who retire on big pensions (e.g US govt service) can/do retire at 50/55 and those who retire at 65 are on SS. So lowering the age was to get better  retirees not necessarily more retirees.
