So according to this poster all comps yes including all the multinationals can no longer have foreign directors? You do of course realise how insane that sounds and all will be packing up.  But welcome to believe an annonymous poster of what he thought he heard or understood 👍

Spelt anonymous BTW, anonymous how? what do you want, a written introduction? Also it seems my hearing is suspect as is my understanding. Not sure exactly where I mentioned multinationals, I was told this was Companies that own land, believe what I was told or not, I couldn't care less.

If i wanted a lesson in spelling, rest assured i would not be asking you.As clearly your reading is just as bad as your comprehension.

 

If you actually bothered to follow the discussion, i clearly said this rule would apply ONLY to companies that exist to own houses, not only i i said it once, but twice if not 3 times.

 

Now you just confirmed what i said but with an attitude.

 

If this is how well you read, i seriously doubt you "hear" any better, so safe to assume what you heard or did not hear is just as useless as your response, but do not let that stop you from misguiding others

Digital nomads aren't really tourist, that's called 'working online' and the real purpose should be conveyed to immigration .

Old discussion, if you move around only for a few months and get back to your home country, a tourist visa or any visa that permit your stay is sufficient. Several immigration officials been asked about this and they are not going to arrest DN's as long as they do not live here permanently. And I am not talking about a big group of them renting office space, but individuals on international contracts , paying their taxes at home. 
But we've had this discussion before.

Interesting too is the banks not refusing transfers into Thailand on the grounds that you send or receive money too often or the money may not have been honestly obtained. Why is the junta not taking measures to limit or reject transfers to one's spouse, say? 

Yeah, remember lots of stories about too many transfers, alleged money laundering or whatever.  Now they want transfers, even though they have no proof the money is from "legitimate" origins.

An interesting take on what I actually wrote, which bears little relation to your response.

The Thai junta wants free movement of capital in their direction. They do not want the freedom of movement of humans which goes with the said capital.

They do, however, insist that Thai capital should not have any such restrictions. That Thai capital should be allowed to take any advantage it wants and the profits sent back and kept in Thailand.

If men just come for sex, the sex is still there , but if men come to Thailand for a holiday and not just sex, then Thailand not such a pleasant place anymore and there are other more enjoyable Countries to go too 

 

I was referring more to semi-retired individuals or couples who have their grandchildren etc. over at some stage during their stay… after xmas and Songkran for example. 5-6 months in Thai and the remainder working in Europe or travelling in it/elsewhere. Lose a 'couple' and that could essentially mean a dozen or more. Not strange or unusual for such things happen as we can reflect on historical data from when other 'places' have has the army in charge. To a large extent it's the same with corporations running things... different outcome but the logic is the same.

Times will keep changing. Thailand has the right to choose — just like Europe. Contrary to popular belief, they do not need every single person’s money. When the new requirements of retirement visas broke out, a minority of the 75,000 retirees in Thailand thought the country was going down the drain because of their threat to go elsewhere.  Seriously? All they are asking for is BE a proper tourist. Or BE a proper retiree. Just BE. No, really.

 

I know literally hundreds of people who want to come here on holiday but they have no other choice than to get a tourist visa.

should obtain elite visa

which only give a 5  year minimum and  that they can change their rules at any time, so you spend 500k then next week they announce compulsory insurance from their own over inflated  insurers ( of  course) and despite you maybe having your own or a lump sum contingency.

I would imagine very soon these airlines are going to get <deleted> off with the Thai immigration the amount on a daily basis they are rejecting,

One way around this would be dont fly long haul into Thailand maybe to Malaysia at least it's a short flight and spend your money there

Flying back from Manchester last Thursday & the (Qatar) Check-in staff were a lot more thorough in checking for Visas than I remember them being in the past, both I (entering on an extension to a Non-O > 50 Visa) & my mate (Works in Thailand & has a Non-B / BOI VIsa) were asked for proof that we were entitled to stay in Thailand [I actually had to point out my extension & how it was valid to Sept 2020, so I'm not sure if the check-in staff are used to checking for these things yet].

 

I'm used to it when returning to Singapore (always have my Employment Pass ready to show) & it's happened to me a couple of times when travelling to the Philippines (flying back from a different airport with a different carrier) but this is only the 2nd time I've been asked for it for Thailand (1st time was Scoot Airlines at Changi, I find the budget airlines there are a lot keener on checking these things that the premium ones)

Whether immigration will create another visa category for 'working digital nomads' is another story.

Yes they have nothing better to do than sit around working out new and creative ways to allow foreigners to live in Thailand! But first let them finish the job of reducing them.

Elite visa might be useful for people who want to live in Thailand full time. I don't have any interest in that but I am able and willing to spend 4 to 6 months there during winters. METV would be ideal for that but if it's not respected because of an individual IO's feelings, what the **** am I supposed to do?

Immigration does not want us to spend 4-6 months in a row here on a tourist visa regularly. They do not need our money. We have to accept that.
