Recommended Posts

December isn't far away. No way possible I will ever in Social Security have savings. Am I going to have to go back to visa runs and long stays away from Thailand? 

 

Cheers

As I understand, letters from embassy of income are no longer valid for marriage visa visa as of 1/1/19.  Must have Thai saving savings account o some big amount bigger than my belly.

I routinely transfer that every month starting last month. Are you saying it is an EMBASSY policy not to issue affidavits now, not a Thai no acceptance policy?

Sorry, no more embassy letters for US citizens. Embassy quit issuing them because they would not or could not verify incomes. If you want to get an extension based on retirement, you must transfer a minimum of 65,000 THB per month into a Thai bank from overseas and be able to prove it with a bank book & bank letter or you can use the 800k method. If you can't do either of those two things, then yes, you may have to go back to visa runs and long stays away from Thailand. Or, you can borrow the money to put in the bank or try using an agent. Somehow, I think you probably already knew all of above. Good luck...

It is the embassies not doing them not immigration not accepting them.

This is the last paragraph of the police order allowing proof of income by transferring funds into bank.

Are you here on a visa or 1 year extension?

 

if you only started transfers of money to a Thai bank last month then you should check to see if you will meet the requirements.

I should be more clear. I am here on the misnamed "Marriage Visa". I report every 90 ndays and in December must renew the visa. I can't understated as a USA citizen what to do to show MY SSDI income in a form Thailand will accept. I am 48. 49 in December then 1 more year to the retirement visa. Any help greatly appreciated.

I wrote this before.

You can prove your income by transferring 40k baht into a Thai bank from abroad every month.

Proof of those transfers are the only thin immigration will accept.

When does your current extension end?

Ubonjoe is the TV expert on these matters, but based on what you just wrote, if extending based on marriage, you will need to show 12 mthly xfers of 40k THB per mth or more from overseas into a Thai bank and you would provide immigration with your bank book & bank letter showing those transfers came from overseas. It can be any income, not only SSDI. So, you can set up to xfer your SSDI directly here (ask Ubonjoe how to set up) or you can put your SSDI in a US bank and then make international wire xfers (probably more costly).
