Thinking about making the move!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i am new here! I am a UK citizen currently living in Spain. I have been to Thailand many many times and i think in the next year i am going to move over there. Now this question may not be appropriate for this sub forum as i have a few but if any one can point me in the right direction i would massively appreciate it!

 

So my current situation is i work remotely for a UK company so income is stable and meets the minimum requirements for entry to thailand. 

What would be the best option regarding visa? As i would plan on being there for a fair bit of time. Most people have suggested doing visa runs but i am worried about that incase for whatever reason i don't get let back in.

 

also with regards to property what would a letting agent or home owner look for in regards to documentation (visa? proof of earnings? work contracts, bank statements etc?) And could any one direct me to a good website where i can view property for rent?

 

How easy is it to set up a bank account in Thailand? What would i need to bring to open one up.

 

Sorry if the questions are too broad but i would appreciate any answers Thanks!

I will have a crack at few of your questions. Thai visa forum is a good start. Always listen to the experts such as ubonjoe and others. The important thing  is your age. If over 50 then I would personally apply for a non O-A visa. You will get 2 years out of that and can look at options. Many threads on obtain non o based on retirement and then apply for annual extensions. 

Also threads on opening bank ac.

With the O-A you can show funds in UK bank. Nice deal. Welcome to Thailand retire. 

If under 50 there is pretty much only couple of options. Good but not cheap

Hi thanks for your response. I am still only the tender age of 29 haha and i would technically be working as a one of those "digital nomad" s i don't mind leaving the country every 30 or 60 days to get a new stamp but if there are other options...

Visa runs are not an option anymore. Opening a bank account is usually easy. Renting places is easy. There may be 6 month visa available.  Group your seperate questions in the relevant forums.

Watch out for streets...you are a target, your life has less value than a bug when it hits the windshield.   Good luck with immigrations.
