400,000 pre and post seasoning

Recommended Posts

Got an extension of permission to stay based on marriage this year for the first time. I was planning to leave the 400,00 baht in the bank all year so as not to fall afoul of the confusing seasoning requirements, especially the post extension part. Now I have a short term cash crunch and using 50,000 baht of that would be easier than other options. So, after these few months, do we have clarity on when you need to have the full amount in the bank before applying for your next extension (seems pretty clear it is 3 months, correct?) and also how many months after the extension I need to have the  money in that account. I did the extension in March. Thanks for your help.

Couldn’t find a clear answer on previous threads I looked at, happy to be directed to a thread that covers this.

The requirements for a marriage extension haven't changed lately. 

Proof of 400k baht in the bank for 2 months by way of a letter from your bank and your bank book.or 40k baht income.proven by a income letter from your embassy.

And after the extension is granted is there a requirement to keep all or some of the 400,000 in the bank for a period of time?

When I google the 800k baht requirements...every instance states a requirement to keep the 800k in bank for 3 months after receiving an extension.

 

Can someone point me to the official position today...it must have changed since earlier this year...would love to see evidence of same...👍

The official rule is NO.

However you may see the odd report where someone quotes that their local office wanted to see bank book with 400k when returning to get extension after the 30 day approval period.

Probably more a misunderstanding or confusion with 800k rules.

That only regards extension based on retirement. The OP is asking for the rules for an extension based on marriage. They are different. 

Marriage: 400 000 in bank seasoned 2 month before extension application. Sometimes you will have to show that there are still 400 000 in the same account at the day you pick up your extension. After that you are free to do what you want with the money, until its time for the new application.

Retirement: This extension adds a second requirement after extension has been granted. Here you must keep 800 000 in the bank 3 month after and might have to show that in combination with your first 90 day report. After that you can use half of the money, but can never fall under 400 000 baht during the year of your extension. Same for the next apllication is time to top up to 800 000 again.

I've simplified all this.....I put 800000 in an account and leave it there throughout the year. So no problems at all.
