Retirement Visa Renewal

That's why I've asserted that the recent onerous rule changes towards super seasoning on steroids is in EFFECT a crafty way to RAISE the financial requirements. 

Others have pushed back saying there was no raise in financial requirements, mostly people that have always just kept a static 800K anyway.

But I feel they're totally wrong. They were already meeting these crafty HIGHER levels. 

Also keep in mind for the rest of the year you aren't allowed to go one baht under 400K baht. That's part of the scheme to virtually RAISE the financial requirements.

This represents a MAJOR change, a major NEGATIVE change from the POV of retired expats using the 800K method. 

The 800K is basically a fixed, long term bank deposit used as a continuous financial  'Bond' for immigration extensions only,  it can't really be considered as a liquid fund available for day to day living expenses, where clearly, additional income/deposits are required.

Thank you for the info. Motdaeng it seems from your post that 2 months is the official position. I wonder if anyone has tested this recently?

Some offices are requiring Three months unless this is the first extension than two months

Three weeks ago I was told at CR TI that three months was the requirement.  First visa and subsequent extensions.

Perhaps is closer to that now.
Not before the changes!

Also the law says you can not spend down below 400k in the non seasoning months

I withdrew all 800k after renewing my extention last month, as the new regulation isn’t in force at my immigration.

That was risky. It may be in effect when you go in for your next one meaning at the very least that you'd be ineligible for your next extension.

 

Would that be unfair?

 

So what else is new?

Huh?
He was obviously talking about an 800k based application. Not income based. Nothing to to do with embassy letters.
