Getting Father Home from Thailand

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Looking for some help or ideas. My father has been living in Pattaya for the last 15 years, owns his own apartment and has been on a retirement visa. However over the last year it seems that he has been developing dementia and is now unable to manage his daily finances etc. I flew out in March as he was constantly on the phone saying he had no money even though he has over £2,000 going into his account monthly. After arriving in Thailand, first thing I had to do was sort out an issue with the police as he's been involved in a bump in his pick up and that had been seized by the police. With other things it cost over £1500 to sort the mess out.

After looking at his finances it seems that he has spent over £55,000 in the last year, so all of his income and all of his savings. I'm not sure due to his dementia that he's being taken advantage of etc. I have  stopped the big payments going into his account and now send him a weekly allowance. He would not return with me to the UK and gets very cross when it's mentioned. I'm now having emails from his apartment manager saying that he is asking for money from other residents and can be come abusive with them.

 

What I'm trying to find out is how would I get him deported for his own safety etc. There is a ticket in his passport that states he was granted a 90 day extension till 4th May 2019, he doesn't have the funds to support himself. Any ideas.

 

MAny thanks

You don't want to get him deported. That process could kill him.

If the imigration take him in, he will be detained before transferred out. You do not want that to happen to him. 

Any suggestion on how to get him out then??

I had this exact situation with a friend of mine. He developed dementia (88 years old) and we found him a nurse and he moved in house in UBON paying for her services around the clock . After a year or so due to his deterioration she could no longer take care of him so she dropped him off at the US embassy and drove off

 

Embassy paid for a short stay in a nursing home and paid for his flight home including having a contact meet him at the airport and he is now in a nursing home US

 

Very Impressive.

Problem is he still has capacity to know what's going on and refused to even think about coming back with me. He won't go anywhere to be looked after

But is he sufficiently compos mentis to realise that he is now on overstay, if this statement in your OP is to be believed?

And is he fully aware of the consequences of overstaying, as spelt out in detail in the following link?

That's a lovely story but I very seriously doubt most such situations have such a "happy" ending.
