I don't think that they look at it hour by hour, minute by minute. I think it's based upon the balance at the end of each day.

No, In my opinion that would not be a problem, but as always it will depend on the IO and probably differ from office to office.

My question is, how a withdrawal can be accidental. There are three ways:

 

* Go to ATM, punch in the card, give your code and the amount.

* Take out money by the counter, which is a bigger procedure.

* Log in to your Internet or phone bank and initiate as well as approve a payment or transfer.

No one of those can be accidental.

Never mind. I wish you good luck.

All this is simple to avoid by using 2 bank accounts and keep the important one in safe place ...so can not be used accidently …… and put a higher than needed sum on it just incase of bank fees or sms fees who both could be automatic wit drawn 

That is how I do 

yeah it was a foolish mistake and i will definitely utilise two bank accounts from now on.

Yes as it can be simple used by mistake by example Thai wife or Live in GF as the card could be looking same , and they are not always aware about their I.O. compatriot's rules for us

They look back through the bank book and if they see the balance dropping below 400K during the past three months they can deny the extension. They don't just look at closing daily balances.

I had exactly this experience. Balance dropped by 3500 THB under requirement (very short time).

Extension denied

But as other posters already mentioned, depending on the IO

when you get the passbook updated, you will have two transactions showing on the same day when you withdrew/deposited the 9000 baht.  one of them will show a balance below the required minimum.

 

either get a fixed account, or a savings account without ATM card.

How about a standing order, or a direct debit. I have one for my credit card as an example. (Although I do usually get a warning that one is going to happen). It is pre-approved. I also automatically transfer money to my partner... and yes it occasionally surprises me. Another month over.

I do think it may be a concern, particularly if one gets a pedantic Immigration Officer. They usually want to see an updated bankbook, it shows ALL transactions and the balance after them, hence going below the limit will be clear.

The requirement is 2 months. Has it been 400k baht that long?

If not then it will up to your local  immigration office accepting it.

If not accepted you could apply for a 60 day extension to visit your wife to get more time for it to be in the bank for 2 months. 

 

What is this 60 day extension visa called? Tourist visa?
