Jomtien says extensions need to show Insurance

Recommended Posts

Sitting at the pool in my complex a guy that had just returned from Immigration inquired about the Medical Insurance requirements. He was told by the staff at desk 8 that he not need this time but he WOULD have to provide the insurance when he extended next year. He said he questioned them and he said they simply told him yes need boss say need. Taqke it for what it's worth.

Supposedly these new rules (whatever their interpretation which as usual is clear as muddy mud) go into effect at the end of this October. 

 

I wouldn't assume that this officer said is the final word on this, but I wouldn't assume that it isn't either.

 

Stay tuned.

The gentleman that told us the story at the pool I don't know personally I can vouch for him. But I do know that he had just came back from immigration with that story like I said I'm not trying to convince people it's true or untrue just repeating what was told to me by somebody who was actually at immigration. But if this is the case and I don't doubt it for a second just another example of different offices reading into the rules differently

What to expect? Big headlines on TVF: BREAKING NEWS Long Term stayers required to have health insurance ...

 

... of course there is going to be a lot of discussions about it. First the need to fiddle out what exact visas etc.

 

Everybody here knows and sees how things are drilled down and is getting more enforced over the years. 

 

There is nothing too crazy when people think ahead and can see this coming for extensions, too. 

I certainly would not be surprised.

 

But we will see ... for now it's not. Ok ...!

It's all part of culling the farang herd. Bringing in this mandatory insurance will absolutely get rid of a large percentage of retirees. 

No they want them to stay to continue to bleed them dry.
