Recommended Posts

Well, that's a relief if you can still apply by post.

 

Hopefully will be as trouble free as in the past.

You do not actually do the application by post. You do it online and then send your passport and the documents mentioned in the info about it.

I can't see the exact requirements/documents necessary for a 12 month Non O based on being over 65 and with a state pension. I was led to believe that all you needed was the UK pension statement, Passport and application form, and fee of course!! This would give you a 12 month stay, 90 day border run accepted and if you go back to the UK every year you can just get another year with a fresh application....is this still available?

That was my immediate question. I guess we must wait until someone submits the documents necessary in the past to apply for the multiple Non O state pension, and see if the application is accepted.

Hi, yep saw that thanks, but it doesn't clarify if its for 12 months, usually for over 50's it's only for 3 months and has to be extended by immigration inside Thailand, UK's always had a 12 month for over 65's which I believe other countries don't have.

, and (3 months bank statement showing monthly income of more than £1,500.) I wonder if they enforce that now (still in brackets) , and in case could it be on a joint account?

Would that be the last 3 statements, 1 from each month, each showing £10,000?

 

Or 1 statement showing the balance in each of the last 3 months?

A multiple entry would be 12 months validity, each entry being 90 days. Giving a total stay of 18 months. To get a 12 month entry/ permission, you would need to look at the Non-Imm OA. Potentially 2 years stay.

I guess either, just showing 10,000 maintained over 3 months.

Sounds great EXCEPT when the postal service loses your passport!! Happened to me in Australia, they delivered to the wrong address and the passport was never seen again. $450 to replace (no compensation from Australia Post). Never again, I'd rather deliver and collect on my own thanks! Saves A LOT of hassle.

No; i used to get a one year Non O when i was in my 50's, as i had taken an early pension from one of my providers and could provide pension statements. Those were the good old days when every year you went in to the Embassy and they recognised you, brought you a Cuppa and did the job in 15 minutes.  The other option has always been a Tourist Visa valid for two months with a one month extension available for 1,900 Baht.
