It's been explained to you in other threads using quotes from various sources who are dealing with the new proposal, but you still persist in blowing false smoke into the issue to cause confusion and paranoia, because you cannot understand what you read ….. if indeed you've read any of the updated reports clarifying exactly to what and whom the proposal affects, since the original announcement.

Don't tell me, pensioners in UK are starving.

Last time I was in Tesco I was gob-smacked at the amount of brand label goods being bought by pensioners when there are identical generic goods available for half the price. Most seemed to believe that eating meat at least once a day was their god-given right when someone like me on an income significantly greater than the pension is quite healthy and happy on four or five meaty meals a week

Somebody explain to me why the insurance doesn't apply for an extension of stay but only when you get an 0/A visa.   Does not make any sense at all.  I believe you will need the insurance for an extension of stay.  No one has said that those already here are Grandfather in and do not need it if they stay and continue with the extension of stay.   People are playing word games here because they don't want it to apply to them.  I am surprised to experience people here just don't say we don't know until the rules come out by immigration.  

As I said before in other media it was very clear that ALL visa/extensions will have required insurance.

Let me clarify a point here please. I entered Thailand on a multiple entry non O visa on 2005 and have extended it for 365 days ever since then. Do I need health insurance when I next extend this in 2 or 3 months? Due to a stoke 2 years ago, it is unlikely I could get insurance now or if I could, the cost would be prohibitive. Also a friend is visiting Thailand for 4 weeks later this year on a visa exempt basis. He has just been diagnosed with lung cancer. He does not plan on taking out insurance. Could this give him a problem ehen trying to enter the country?

 

Thanks,

 

Alan

As I read in other media everybody applying for visa/extensions has to show insurance. 

So it's good to have a plan B. At last go back to NHS

Of course, if you're over 70 you can't get medical cover anyway!

That's absolutely WRONG!

Found a facebook ad claiming that health insurance will be required for "Thai Retirement Visa". Weexpats.com are selling insurance, so could be "mistaken"(cough).

quotes using terms that do not carry any weight in the immigration act. none of your sources have defined what the word "renewal" refers to. you assume they mean what you want them to mean.  I don't know what they mean.

Well, there is always social welfare. 
Don't tell me, pensioners in UK are starving. 
Nothing to do with that,you have to earn 18600 to be able to take your wife to live there,for her to get a visa

So, what is your plan B???? 

You got a too low income for UK to go with family and also you Can't pay insurance. 

Might be time for a move before it's too late. I read about Bulgaria, Romania or Hungary, where it's not expensive to live with low income. However it will have to have more Research. 

Good Luck

Where you can pay hospital by yourself in EU? 

Come to reality! You will have to pay in Thailand or choose an international insurance. 

One way or another you have to pay.

Plan B (in planning stage) is just across the border into Cambodia, with ! year visa easy, cheap and no income requirement. Other 1/2 can easily visit family, and a lot of Thai spoken/understood.

There are many retirees here on low income. If we spend B500,000/yr, and 10,000 leave, how silly will Thailand look?

Hi Everyone,

 

Thai Visa Health Protect has a number of plans available, underwritten and powered by Pacific Cross Health Insurance.  We currently have an existing product suite though are also able to offer the plan approved for the visa requirement.

 

There also seems to be a lot of confusion as to who this applies to.  I thought it would be courteous to provide some info we have provided to our existing client base and brokers.  We have been inundated with inquiries, I will try to post more as I know, if anyone needs any help please email contact@thaivisaprotect.com.

 

To Business Partners,
The purpose of writing to you is to update you on the status of the above visa requirements for foreigners.  
 
Pacific Cross has approval from the Immigration Department office to provide products in support of a "long stay" visa applicant for both types 1 year O-A, and 10 Year O-X.  However at this stage only the O-X 10 Year Visa minimum insurance requirements have been determined and a copy of these rules are shown below.
 
In line with this Pacific Cross has developed three "Long Stay" insurance plans to support the O-X 10 Year Visa applications.  These plans are know as Platinum 1, Platinum 2, Platinum 3, please note that only these plans from Pacific Cross are accepted by the Immigration Department at this point in time.
 
As previously intimated the insurance requirements for the O-A (1 Year Visa) have not yet been determined therefore please reassure your clients not to panic unnecessarily.  Policy holders may need to upgrade their plans so for us Pacific Cross Health Insurance we are working on how such changes will be accommodated.
 
 
Can you spot the hidden word 'extension'!
