Cambodia is currently my alternative choice of venue

Siem Reap of you're a Chiang Mai sort of person, Phnom Penh if you're a Pattaya/Bangkok sort of person, Kep/Kampot for Hua Hin lovers. Just under $300 for a 1 year multi entry ES VISA, no hoops if you're over 55.

And 50 cent beers and Happy Pizza

Well.....It was only November last year when I jumped through the hoops to obtain my retirement visa. Then a few months ago I cleared the jump bars to ensure I had the 800k. Now....they want me to be insured in case I injure myself on all these hurdles.

what next!!!!!

If you break your leg don't come running to me !:cheesy:

So whats the end game with endless visa crackdowns year after year?

 

All this started in 2009 with the crackdowns on the 30 day border runners....

 

And each year sense 2009 there has been tightening going on....

 

So 2009 to 2019 is 10 years of visa tightening.....The majority of expats will not survive another 10 years of tightening.... 

 

Retired expats only one tightening in 20 years.  I can take that.

Maybe we can get some sort of clarification from@ubonjoe ?

He wrote about 54 minutes ago, "only for OA long stay visas applied for at a embassy or official consulate in you home country.

All information we have is that it does not apply to extensions of stay based upon retirement or any other extension."

 

No one wants to believe him as it's not to exciting.

I would love to see some stats on insurance rates before/after. Would it nit stand to reason rates rise when people are compelled to buy a product?

A health insurance from abroad covers a year or the shorter period u pay for. That period does not correlate with the visa period. How do they mean to solve this. As usual decisions are made without thinking and proper research of facts and how it actually works.
