There are plenty of people with high incomes who do not routinely leave 6,000 euros lying around in a bank account. If the consulate just wants to see 5,000 euros in an account on the date of application, that may not be a big deal. If they want to see a continuous balance of that amount over months, many might not have that.

There are not many Embassy's and consulates that don't apply the 6 months of bank statements rule with a balance not allowed to drop below 6000 Euros, £5000, $7000 etc over the course of 6 months for a METV application
It isn't a new requirement.

I think until the banks start paying at least the inflation rate, it does not follow that people will leave a lot just sitting around. Especially If you don't have a six month look ahead Crystal ball to guess what the next imm. requirement will be.

 

Would be useful to know how much Thai time are they talking about OP? (let us know if they post any more detail) For this SETV issue.  Dad (in the UK) is probably going to get three SETVs a year x59 day trips, as they don"t do non-O ME visa for him anymore in the UK. Just in case this approach spreads there.

Shortest time what i read was a guy who visited last winter asia about 3 months. Mainly most time in Thailand ( without visa) but visits ( real visits, no visaruns) also in Hong Kong, Singapore and philippines.

Not sure how much income is high income but in the USA people making more than 160K per annum have average savings account balance of 50K. Financial planners suggest to keep 5/6 monthly expenses in savings before taking any vacation

Kinda ironic because in the meantime  they are wondering why the tourists have stopped coming.

And of course they would have no idea why?

I think it's a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand does. There clearly isn't enough coordination between different branches of the Thai government. Which has led to quite a mess.
