I just got one from Glasgow, they never asked for bank statements, only application form, my passport, wife's ID card and passport and marriage certificate, waited 2 days then told to come and collect it

That's good, I hope it stays that way. That will be the plan for next year then, when my ME runs out.

I'll only get a week in Scotland at the end Jan 2020, as I'll have to turn right round to get back for one last entry from it, before starting the SE applications every time I'm back to the UK (which I'll adopt as my sole strategy now I think).

Where is the Op getting their information from?!?!?

 

Multiple Entry Visa :

  • Multiple Entry Tourist Visa will be valid for 6 months from the date of issue. Travellers must enter Thailand within the validity of visa, and they will be permitted to stay in Thailand not exceeding 60 days for each entry within the period of 6 months from the date of arrival in Thailand. 

Multiple Entry Non-Immigrant Visa will be valid for 1 year from the date of issue. Travellers must enter Thailand within the validity of visa.  However, the permitted length of stay is up to 1 year from the date of arrival in Thailand."

That is just general information.

For the non-o multiple entry non-o visa the specific requirements are here. http://www.thaiembassy.org/london/en/services/7742/84508-Non-Immigrant-visas.html#6

A friend of mine has a NoN O Multi Entry issued by London, based on 'pensioner over 65 with government pension.' He is aware he will not get another multi entry from UK.. He is doing a visa run in August and will get another 90 days that will take him to November. His visa runs out on September 2nd and he says he will have to leave Thailand before that date because his visa runs out on that date.  

 

1. Is that correct.?

 

2. Could he do another  visa run on 1st September and get another 90 days to take him to December.?

Interesting really. The UK offers and we apply for 5 year multiple entry tourist visas for my wife that we rarely use but handy to have and do pay for.

 

I know it's off topic never thought Thailand would start making what I call visas of convenience ie the the Multi o based on marriage harder or impossible to get in the UK.

His visas expiration date is not the last day he can stay in the country. It is only the last day he can use it to get a new 90 day entry.

1. No

2. He probably getting one in August since that is when his current 90 day entry ends. He could do a another entry on the 1st or 2nd of September to get another 90 days.

Where does it say anywhere that a multiple entry tourist visa is no longer available at the London embassy.

It only mentions multiple entry non-o visas. 

 

You’re correct. I read multiple entry and SETV and my brain immediately thought METV.

Perplexing that the SETV is requiring..

Proof of financial support e.g. bank statements, proof of earnings, sponsorship letter

This is very unspecific as to amounts.

Why are they changing rules for tourists, surely they want them. And anyone planning on over 30 days would feel better having a Visa.

These rules have been in force in Paris for about four years now.  I go to the bank and get a statement from them saying that I have 1000 euros (the sum that I was required to have). The bank however gives the amount that I have actually in my account and at what date. Of course at that moment it's not a bad sum - it's before I take it all out to bring in cash.

So let me get this right. You have to book a flight before you apply for a 60 day Visa? If for any reason your Visa is denied then your flight is wasted. That seems really fair. I stay at a guesthouse which I book with the Thai owner on my line app. I can see the Thai embassy accepting that as conformation, not.

I just get my GH owner to send an EM saying that Mrs...... has booked from the ......to the......  It doesn't matter much if the last date is not too correct.  When I go to Imm. for the 30 days my GH is on the security list so I don't have to provide anything from them.
