2 Questions re the Marriage Visa Application.

 

1: After the application has been made does Immigration come to inspect your house in every case.

If anyone has any experience of this,and

what exactly happened when they visited ,your feedback will be appreciated.

 

2:After the application has been made

can the 400000 Baht be withdrawn?

OP. maybe mention the office you will be using for specific requirements. In Jomtien my last inspection took all of 48 seconds, then to the condo office to find someone to verify you live there as husband and wife.

Exactly as UJ says, though I would recommend if possible, a visit to the office with which you intend to apply, and clarify their exact requirements.   For example some offices want your witness(es) to be present when you make the application.

 

In my own very recent case, no visit was made during the 'Under Consideration' period.   I was also free to use any/all of my banked funds after the application.   Again, check with your IO.

Never had a visit from 3 different offices.

Samui, Khorat, Khon Kaen.

Always used the bank deposit after application.

You might want to ask about it before you do your next extension. Many offices are telling people to bring their updated bank book when they go back to get their one year extension stamp. Others have been contacted during the 30 days under consideration to bring one in.

I (my wife) was contacted by phone about 23 days after the 30 day stamp ‘under consideration’ was issued for my marriage extension and asked to get my bank book updated and then scan and send it to the main immigration office in Bangkok to check that the money (400k) was still there and not touched/withdrawn. We asked our local office, who we know very well, about this and they said that this was happening a lot more and if I had of withdrawn any of the money leaving less than 400k in the bank the office (Bangkok) would have refused the extension.

So it appears from your comments that for “safety’s sake “, it would be better to not touch the money (400000) UNTIL the 30 Day under consideration period expires and the new Marriage extension is finally stamped in the Passport?

Chiang Mai Immigration:

 

Very First extension 3 years ago. After handing in all the paperwork, 10 days later we had to show up at immigration office with a Thai witness. All 3 of us were being asked questions separately. After the interview the IO followed us home and checked our house.

 

Same goes for a friend who lives in the same area. 

 

That happened only on the first extension, 2nd and 3rd no visits.

In Mukdahan we were visited on two separate occasions, by two different pairs of very serious looking officers- stayed outside the house though. There also had to be a ‘significant ‘ local resident present to vouch for us.

I assume you are asking about an extension of stay based upon marriage.

1. It depends upon the office you apply at. Some do a home visit and others will ask you to bring witnesses to confirm you are living together as husband an wife.

What they do during the home visit depends upon the officers doing it.

2. It is advised to leave the 400k baht in the bank until you get your extension stamp at the end of the 30 day under consideration period you will get.

So to get an extension based upon marriage you need 400k in the bank?  What happens if you don't?
