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?  

 

What makes you think that officers at local immigration offices have any knowledge of immigration rules and regulations?

Please calm down and wait for the new rules/regs. to be officially announced.
You're letting your thoughts/imagination run wild imo

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 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.

Nothing has changed for people married to a Thai.

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.

"the reporter garbled it" - wow, that would be something new, wouldn't it?

Usually they don't, but they apply their personal view of the Immigration regulations. 

So it's very important to know the local point of views, in order to comply with them.

Can you provide the source of this announcement?

Don't have the kink now but it was discussed extensively in one or two threads here a few weeks ago and I have seen the rules in writing. They were more detailed like retirement 800k 3 months before, 800k 3 months after, then 400k for next 6 months. I think you can get these rules already at TM, I will look and get back. This is old news.

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?

You're right. People like the late Tony Kenway could easily slap 10 million in a Thai bank, if that's what Big Joke wants. Will that make them great law abiding citizens? No! Will they get a visa?  Yes!  It's all about money. It always has been. It's just a matter of how much.

But you do.  

Would you like me to arrange for you to brief your local Imm. guys.

Where did you get those figures from? They are certainly not in any police order I have seen on TVF.

 

Just read your reply to another poster. You are specifically referring to retirement extensions yet your post implies changes to marriage extensions which hasn't happened. 400k in the bank for marriage extension has not changed.

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!

^^ This - 100%!!!!

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.

so when are you leaving before the men in white coats come for you?

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.

There is a whole raft of measures coming and particularly for those attempting to live here on tourist visas/visa exempt entry's. People simply don't want to believe it. Why do you think the London Thai Embassy has held off on implementing the new online visa application system until May?  BJ only needs to come up with the measures of stopping what is portrayed on social media on a daily basis, as ways too circumvent the immigration system. That is his job. The Malaysian bond style system has been spoken about at length at committee meetings for the last 18 months. That is very likely to come in to effect over the next 5 years but most likely in stages.

ND, Immigration has already just now announced the new retirement and marriage deposit rules. 800k/6mo and 400h/6mo.

So where did this come from or see it? Like I was thinking for the 400k. Seems only natural they would do it this way
