400,000 baht for marriage visa

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, My Thai  wife is in the process of selling her home. she is giving me half the proceeds. I don't quite understand if the 400,000 in my Thai bank account must come from outside of Thailand or  can I take the 400,000 and deposit it into my Thai bank account and use it for my Marriage extension or must i send it out of the country and send it back into Thailand.

Unless you've earned it in Thailand it is supposed to come from abroad; however, they will not ask or check where it came from.

How can Thai baht fall and become a lesser amount as a domestic currency in Thailand? Really?

To: OP. Yes you can make the deposit of money in Thailand. They do not interest themself about where the money comes from as it is right now.

For my "O" extension I've had 400K in the bank 3 months in advance for years because I was told some immigration officers don't accept the 2 months. Did anyone had a problem with holding it only 2 months in Bank?

Only at 1 or 2 rogue offices that wanted it in the bank for 3 months since the were using the old rules for retirement extensions.

Not sure they are still doing that or not since it is now since is now 2 months for them as well.

I think you meant that a couple of rogue offices wanted three months?

The IO at chiang mai immigration said the 400000 has to come from abroad yesterday. Now I am really confused .

I just show a Thai bank book with 400K+ in there and a letter from the bank stating the amount in my account, dated 2 days before I visit immigration. Than on the day I visit immigration I transfer 100 baht from another account into my 400K account and update the bank book. I make a photo copy of the updated book and they never asked where the money originated from

There is no requirement to prove the 400k baht came from abroad in any rule.

But of course that is Chiang Mai immigration that makes up their own rules.
