Does anyone know a good agent for retirement extension of stay?

Recommended Posts

I used the 65K per month before   I do not always transfer that much because I do not need it and, have a few experiences back in the states. A bit late now to transfer the funds since my renewal is in August.   I have never used an agent for anything but not sure if they would be understanding so I feel no choice but to use an agent this time  and then be prepared for the next renewal.  

If anyone could suggest a few that would be great.

Serving what immigration-office?  Some use out-of-area agents, but this adds complexity / issues.

You need to indicate which office you attend for extension.

What do you expect the agent to do for you?

If you started transferring 65k baht from outside the country now you could do your extension based upon income. Chaeng Wattana will accept just a few months of transfers to apply for the extension this year.

Or you could put a 800k baht in the bank for 2 months before the date you apply for the extension.

Or if you have transferred less than 65k baht every month then you could use the combination of what you have transferred in with money in the bank to reach a total of 800k baht. For example if you have been transfering in 50k baht that would be a annual income of 600k baht and then you would need 200k baht in the bank for 2 months.

Save time, speed/smooth the process. At least that's my goal.

 

Still looking for an agent referral (Bangkok/Div. 1-CW: New PP_Stamp XFER + TM-30 + TM-7: Ext Stay/Ret - 65,000 + TM-8/MREEP + TM47); have complete documentation.

 

No desire to spend two or three days schlepping up to CW, back to the bank, back to CW, back home for photos in front of house, more copies. Yes, it was an adventure the first dozen times, when it could be done in one day.

Under the new rules, do we have reports of successful "combination" applications with less than 400K for the "in the bank" portion and/or how the post-seasoning works for these amounts?

A Bangkok agent keeps sending me email. Send me a PM, I will give their email. I have not used them yet.

Seeing as how you have mentioned the Combination I would like to know if this way of extending my visa is still acceptable?

I use the IO at Jomtien and have been using a pension letter plus money in the bank for the last 15 years. I somehow got the impression that they were no longer accepting this way to get your extension. Since February I have been sending over a regular monthly amount of money hoping that ( along with money in the bank to make up the 800k ) I would be able to use a bank statement in place of the embassy pension letter.

I thought that I had read a post that said Jomtien were no longer accepting this.

Can you throw any light on this please?

I have seen a report of Jomtien accepting a application using the combination option.

What you read or heard before were only rumors.

13K, I need to get into this agent business, it's money for old rope. The process is so easy and straight forward that it is a joke for anyone to take money to do it for you.  My advice would be to get to Jomtien immigration and get the most up to date information on your actual situation. After that you can make an informed decision regarding your next step.

In January, a poster was told by Jomtien Immigration that the combination method with a pension would not be accepted. However in April, an extension based on retirement was successful at Jomtien using the combination method and a pension (NO embassy letter was used).  I will link both reports.
