Absolute latest from Immigration on Insurance...

Recommended Posts

I think I would trust the Police Order rather than some idiot Immigration Officer who has no clue.
Actually the specific enforcement policy at your office is more important.

Example combo retirement applications without embassy letter. Police order say yes. Some offices say no.

Too much speculation for me, I am over it, when immigration tells me I cant renew my extension in December because I need health insurance, then I will act. I just reported for my 90 days this week, no signs up in the office and nobody informing me that when I renew my extension of stay I may be required to have health insurance. Who knows in this place, one day something new , next day changes and from office to office they change the rules that suits them.
It would be too early for there to be a sign even if there ever is a sign. I suggest you pay attention to reports after 31 October about your office.

So would  you think waving  a copy of the Police Order is going to be successful in convincing a so called  idiot Immigration Officer?

And here lies the problem that no matter what the police rules or laws are it still boils down to how each immigration office or immigration officer interprets the police order and how they want to apply it. Also what happens when the insurance companies decline a claim which is  well known trade mark of insurance companies, could be some interesting times ahead.

Those who came here on a Non immigrant class B visa and live on an extension for years are not mentioned. What is the factual difference between them and an O-A, when by today both live on extensions based on retirement?

You are right at the moment

but if we analyse the mindset of the rule

it's clear for them, and they do not mystery about it,  every retiree over 50 yo is ''at risk''

so why someone with a OA visa (Or his extension) is more ''at risk'' than someone with

a O visa (Or his extension) ?

For me its just a matter of time before everybody will be impacted

particularly when they are going to see all the OA (Or extension based on) holder

swift on a O visa (And extensions). 

 

Exactly! Because the medical risk/Liability Thailand is seeking to avoid exists equally across all visa types.

As that states it is for entries to the country using a OA visa issued after the 31st of October.

Every time you enter the country you must have insurance valid for one year or they will do the entry to the date the insurance expires instead of one year.

To get a one year entry shortly before your visa expires you must have to have valid insurance for one year on the date you enter the country.

With all this hassle, O-A will be a dead option for me!

And the Answer to that question was...NO! not required...Non OA only....and they are only obtained OUT of Thailand...Anything applied for INSIDE Thailand is exempt.

 

Excellent post WeeGee, my wife took me to Phichit immigration, and they told her the only time you need to bother about the TM30 is when you return after leaving the country.

All well and good, but this being Thailand, and IO bosses and staff change all the time, this could change anytime.

I still say Thai immigration cannot be trusted in the long term.

Because when people really don't  know what's going on, they speculate.

When they know a little bit, then they fabricate.
