Annual Extension Done on Pension Today

Recommended Posts

" I also asked what would happen if people spent part of the money they are not supposed to … I understand (I hope although I am quite often wrong)  that she said they would be on overstay until it was "

 

You asked this question in the context of those applying for extensions based on lump sum not on the monthly income basis that you were applying for?

 

An example of leniency anyway, encouraging.

You were apparently using the 65k baht income option. For that you need to to prove 65k baht going into an account for 12 months.

The images you posted only show the 800k baht in the bank option.

Did your bank book show the 65k baht transfers?

Yes ... in the context of those applying with lump sum ... previously I have always used lump sum but don't want any problem if I have an emergency demand ... and it is not a problem doing a monthly transfer ....

 

For next year the IO told me that they would want print out etc including my March 2019 pension amount .... I always do extension in April ... last date is early May ... I couldn't have picked a much worse time of the year for annual extension ... in 2007 I wasn't aware that this period was one to be avoided ....

Yes ... I decided in March this year to change to income ... set up with TransferWise to pay direct to my Bangkok Bank account thus showing FTT ...I am British.

 

Did a test transfer ... Then the 65100 transfer in March and April. I also did other transfers of larger amounts ...should not have gone to the Motor Show!!!

 

Before Songram I visited Nonthaburi Immigration and asked if just two transfers would be ok this year ... I was told YES. 

 

This pulling out and listing the FTT's needs sorting with Bangkok Bank ...

 

I see I missed out the word 'replaced' in my 1st post relating to spending the 800k/400k ..sorry

Now if someone would only show those two pieces of Police Orders to the Head Clown at Jomtien Immigration we all may be able to get on with our lives!

Agreed. With only two qualifying transfers (March and April), this is indeed an interesting data point.

 

On the downside, there still seems to be some confusion about acceptable documentation, and potentially getting it in a timely and acceptable format.

 

The Bangkok Bank letter appears similar to the other two I've seen posted here. Can anyone translate which box is ticked on that letter?

 

I'm leaning towards getting such a letter, which links to the Credit Advice/Receipts, for six months (Jan-Jun) in June, along with a six-month statement, and a second letter+CARs for Jul-Sep, along with a three-month statement, showing nine (9) monthly qualifying transfers. Then maybe get a Certification Letter day-of at CW.

 

 But will wait to see what others experience between now and mid-Sep.

Unfortunately each Head at Immigration Office seems to have the power to 'adjust' requirements ... those documents were in a file and she came out to see me ...whilst waiting for my Passport and bank book to be returned... and asked me to sign that I had seen them...guess she realised that earlier she hadn't shown them to me ...

The ticked box says ...received the transfer from another country and sell to the bank  .....an approximate translation ..

Am I wrong in believing that if you use the money in the bank method, it doesn't matter where it comes from, and if using the income method, you can spend every last Satang whenever you want to.

or time consuming and rife with pitfalls such as needing printouts on the latest day. 

Especially when said print-outs are of apparently non-existent bank docs (as per the OP's #2)!
