Why on earth do you think that will be maintained?

I only hope, I used it personally for the last 15 years. 

But I am conscious everything can change here, 400 can become 500000, 800 can become 1000000 and many other things. 

But one can't live permanently in the state of being afraid of something which may eventually happen. 

However I transfer already for 15+ years monthly 2000 Euro from Belgium to Thailand as I "need" so much. 

Will see what will happen, in the meantime I did my extension last January, so I am OK for another year. 

I hope.

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 ?

Hell quit screwing around just make it 20 or 50 million  and Big Joke could finally get rid of all the pesky farang all at once...

Easier, faster and more watertight =

 

  • 1.6 million baht on deposit for 12 months for retirement extension
  • 800K baht on deposit for 12 months for wedding extension
  • 30 day reporting with full finger printing and facial scan on each occassion
  • 10K baht fine for not doing TM30 report (payable by foreigner on next extension application)
  • Compulsory medical insurance payable to agent at each immigration office. No choice of providers
  • New stamps that will burn a full page in your passport, not just half a page like the previous ones.

 

How do you know ? you have no proof of it ; " Kaeng mak " ! are you sure ?

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.

I stated this before, in a previous thread......but you're spot on, its better to push us out, not throw us out.

You're never gonna convince me that people on retirement and marriage visas present a substantial risk of criminal behavior to Thailand. But Big Joke keeps acting otherwise.

 

The older people generally become, the less likely they are to be engaged in criminal behavior . Married people commit fewer crimes than unmarried people. Don't they teach this in Thailand's police academies?

Yes.  That is their intention.

If you think otherwise you are entirely deluded.

Well..Khaeng Mak you are certainly laying it on the line..however,I agree with you.

 

It's been perfectly obvious since a certain event in 2014 and It is gathering momentum now...

 

I watch it from afar having departed with my savings relatively intact,communicate with my friends who still reside there as "guests", and watch 'em play "Let's move the goalposts" on a weekly basis.

 

My conclusion has always been that those who are "farang"-or posing as such-and repetitively state that all is well have skin in the game.

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.

 

Yes but, be wary - this is a very short summary of a meeting (?) by an anonymous Chan 7 news writer. AND, Immigration has already just now announced the new retirement and marriage deposit rules. 800k/6mo and 400h/6mo. So I would wait for real rules to be published before I get divorced. He my well be talking about the existing new rules and the reporter garbled it.

Wait and see. On some part I wouldn't put it past him/them to level the building blocks for all foreigner as it may be seen as just that, a business thing, and a win win for the banks as it gives them free capital to work with on our expense.

 

But on the most it would seem like a mistake as an increase of 100% as the amount is a lot of money by anyone's standards especially for the Thai who it is a k**** ransom.

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

 

That bridge will be crossed if  and when it has to be … until then I will keep enjoying life and leave all the worries to all those with nothing to do.

 

While on the subject, have any one of those crying about 'what' might happen, got off their arse and visited the local immigration office and asked directly what is going on or likely to happen -- any yes's out there?

Actually it seems many have asked and it is a case of the desk staff not knowing or interpretations varying depending on which IO is asked/which office asked at. HTH
