Insurance for retirement visa

Recommended Posts

With these new requirements coming into force soon and the prices quoted from Bangkok insurance looking way too high, was wondering if anyone has found any cheaper options..

Is it yet confirmed or otherwise that "insurance" is required for renewal of extension of stay based on retirement?

Unless you are applying for a OA long stay visa at a embassy or consulate in your home country you do not need to worry about the insurance.

Moving you topic to the insurance in Thailand forum.

And probably medical insurance only required for the O-X category. From the embassy web site in the UK it is only indicated as a requirement for the 5 year O-X visa.

if you buy a motorbike you get something in return for your money and it

does not go up in Price by 60% next year and once you pay that is it...paid in full. plus there are more than five motorbikes that you can choose to buy.

the motorbike shop do not dictate to you,,and as I have the money if I have

a problem I can just pay as you go...a bit like a motobike taxi.

You could live in other countries, example: Philippines, Cambodia. Vietnam, etc and come to Thailand for intermittent treatment or maintenance tune up.  If it's ongoing treatment, that's another story. Try Cigna, they give quotes for expats insurance.  However, the problem others identified issues exist with age and preexisting conditions.  Either way, this is NOT looking good.  Likely, this is only the beginning too with restrictions.

Most insurance discussions get removed from here as there is another Forum specifically for it.

It still isn't certain that Health Insurance is a requirement for living in Thailand.

But generally it is better to have it in case of illness or hospitalisation.

I should have written obligatory I guess.
