If you want to extend your'll need to check the rules. I thought it was 800K (retirement), 400K (married to Thai), and 500K ( taking care of minor child). However, I'm not a expert. Best to check with your immigration office.

The 500k baht is for being the parent of a foreign child attending school.

For the parent of a Thai child it is 400k baht in the bank.

Anyway the reason I am telling you this is becuase I was told by many she would have been bluffing me, but no they can put holds on you getting in again on a tourist visa/stamp plus even extending. I was luckily granted 20 days and had to book a flight in-front of them (which I never got on).

If you have a Thai son, why did you not ask for a 60-day extension to visit him rather than a tourist extension?

you do understand you cannot work in any way shape or form in Thailand on the Elite Visa right? It falls under the classification of a tourist visa and specifically states this on application/terms and conditions and on their website faq.

I don't care about work.


I thought it had already been clarified upthread that the idea of an Elite Visa (Type PE?) is not that of a Tourist Visa (Type TR) even if it falls under the same category.  One lets you stay full time and one doesn't.  Like others, I wish there were clear rules around Tourist Visa entries/durations of stay, but most of the TR cases refused are clearly too far away from being described as tourists.

Sounds like your upset because of the requirement of keeping 800K in the bank. With the falling pound I realize it more difficult than getting a letter from your embassy

Not no more.....
