Somebody without the proverbial pot to p!ss in?

It's not just about putting it in, thats the easy part. Try getting it out. It was a nightmare trying to get 500,000 baht out.

Why would you want Immigration Officers verify this insurance when you arrive in Thailand ?? :blink:

No need. far easier to verify it in their foreign embassies or their local immigration offices.

yes but what about when O-A holders does a border run to come back in and stay for a second year?

Id say they will want to verify the insurance policy is still goes for 2nd year?

 

So will they check the paperwork at all borders?

 

or maybe they excuse us from doing the border runs and just show your paperwork at offices such as CW?

555

 

or everyone just end up getting 1 year of cover and thats it?

Thanks but this does not answer my question . My friend obtained his first type 0 based on retirement in Bangkok last year. Is he eligible to get a re-entry permit before expiration date which would give him a second year without applying for extension of stay ?

You friend is now in possession of a Non-Immigrant O visa which has not yet expired. On i it says number of entries. If it is 'M' this means multiple within expiration date.

With this in hand he can not apply for re-entry permit as he already has this permit.

 

If your friend is here on his 2nd year after Non-Immigrant O visa with en extension of permission to stay for RETIREMENT (which is not a visa) he can apply for re-entry permit but the given permit will expire the same date as the permission to stay.

So a re-entry permit can not 'give a second year'

A post containing a link to a foreign language site has been removed as this is an English language forum. English is the only acceptable language anywhere on ThaiVisa including Classifieds, except within the Thai language forum, where of course using Thai is allowed.

I don't think it will apply as activating a 2nd year is still with the original OA visa. When the visa expires and you apply for a new one (the misnamed "renewal") in your home country you will insurance.

As i understand you can exit before the first year is up and come back in through IMMs at a land border to start the second year.

 

Im asking how and when they will verify you have the insurance for a 2nd year?

when you go through that border?

How will some somchai at Cambodian border read/ identify French or whatever insurance policys?

I bet they won't. Not worth it.

BTW if you managed to get an Insurance to get your O-A Visa, why wouldn't you keep it for the second year? It's important to have one, mainly in a foreign country.

So as usual, the rules are not yet in application that some people are already trying to find a loophole to pay less, to pay half, ... :ermm:

From what I hear the Story is based on a leak and there's been no official statement so better just wait a bit.

There will be thousands of policies in different languages and the Thais being mental giants won't even know where to start.
