Nonthaburi Immigration - Non O - warning!

Recommended Posts

You could apply for a 60 day extension to visit your to have a enough time to have the 400k baht in the bank for 2 months.

Unless you are from a country that can only apply for a visa in their home country you could get a single entry non-o visa from a nearby embassy or consulate.

They apparently gave you the correct information a proving the 40k baht income by doing transfers into the country. But was there a problem with showing the source of it when you went to immigration?

Thank you for you reply ubonjoe...the 60 day extension is mentioned in the post above. And, no they didn’t give the correct information because as also explained above, more or less, they won’t accept 40k a month...only 400K. (the 40k or more has to be a “proven income” from your home country, or a pension of over 40k, “proven”. Nothing else will be accepted...

 

PS. What good is leaving the country for a NON O if you have to eventually repeat the process of providing income, photographs of your house, inside and out, personal life, bank statements etc, eventually, all of which would cost more money that I would not have needed to spend if immigration didn’t provide the wrong advice, not to mention a flight to a “nearby embassy”. I have 3 children in 3 schools in Thailand, each child costing me 40k or more per term, I really cant afford to be traveling every 3 months due to the incompetence of a few individuals at immigration. The one year marriage visa I have been using for the past 6 years is convenient as we only need to report not leave the country. 

 

btw, I have spent 4 million baht for our home, plus car, kids education for 12 years, this is not a consideration for immigration NONTHABURI, and that provides us with an indication of the true nature of immigration in Thailand, whereas in other more “ENLIGHTENED” countries these financial details would be a consideration.

 

Anyway, this is something we all should be aware of if we want to continue staying here, as it is getting much more difficult for farang in Thailand. But thank you anyway and I appreciate your advice.

PSS...they knew who the “source” was, the initial immigration officer that gave me this spurious advice was sitting around the corner from us, at a desk less than 30 or so feet away. When my wife questioned him as we were leaving as to why he gave us the wrong advise, and, does he realise what he has done to our family, he replied, “I’m Sorry they should not be so strict”.

I don't believe in God so I can't help you. Now if you believed in a caring person donating money I could help elevate your stress.

I have nothing to add here...this has nothing to do with money...please read the post carefully to fully understand the gravity of the situation

OP thank you for your information, I might start putting the 40k/m in the bank, as a possible back-up, the more stories like yours that I read, reminded me that nothing can be relied on now (not my previous view a few years ago). If I put 40k/m in the bank they would probably want 45k, if I actually applied, knowing  my luck. Anyway we shall avoid dealing with those people as long as practically possible. Thank you for your post...

I wrote single entry non-o not a multiple entry non-o visa. You could apply for the extension based upon marriage near the end of the 90 day entry from it.

You can travel overland to get the single entry non-o visa at the embassy in Vientiane or the consulate Savannakhet in Laos without showing financial proof. You would only need your marriage certificate, and copies of your wife's house book registry and ID card signed by her.

Brother, thank you for your kind response...however, please be aware that placing 40k in a “Thai bank account” may not suffice, our 45k as you mentioned, I did that...but they want it to be a proven income from your home country. I live in Thailand and am retired, so I just send money I have saved from Australia plus pension. But if you are placing more than 40K from your home country and it is work related I don’t think you will have a problem.

This is exactly the reason my wife and I have learned to NEVER ASK THEM ANYTHING as we have been given the wrong advice many times in the past only to show up again and be told that "we did not say that".  It seems to be some sort of game that they are fond of.

 

 

Thank you...the thing is this time they were aware of their mistake and admitted it. We confronted the guy that gave the wrong information. Also remember the only source of info we have is immigration, their websites are precarious at best, so if they can’t get it together we have no choice but to continue to depend upon an unprofessional immigration system in Thailand.
