Successful Extension with new proof of income rules

Recommended Posts

For a recent successful ext/stay/ret (income:65k) at CW I was able to use:

 

BBL account ownership letter (name, account, balance) from the pevious day

BBL Foreign Transfer Statement + Credit Advice/Receipts from ~ three days earlier

BBL same day pass book BF (done at the kiosk in the basement level at CW)

 

Made logistics relatively straightforward, was able to queue at 06:15, re-queue at 08:00 and get something like L7.

 

I was not asked for any proof of origin of the funds, although I did have the relevant documentation (Annuity) in hand.

There you go again! At some IOs you have to get there early or risk not beeing seen to on that day, either that or have a long long wait. Some banks (my branch doesn't open until 10.30am) don't open until mid-morning. If we were all perfect like you this wouldn't be a problem, unfortunately we're not. We all manage, somtimes with difficulty to comply with these rules in order to stay here, but it'd be a better experience if people like you wouldn't keep making smart alec comments. You're just a WUM in my opinion and I've now blocked you.

First, you will not need to visit your branch where you opened the account. I am pretty sure there is an branch of your bank close enough that opens 08.30.

Also most people that say there is so much problem are retired. That baffles me. How can this be the part of the expat community that always seems to be most stressed, need everything quickly and never have time? retired must stand for something. I sincerely hope I will get more time when retired, then I have now. 🙂

However, I can understand that we sometimes have to struggle but that´s how life is. Nobody ever told you everything would be easy. Sometimed it´s just to take the bad with the good. Because, of course there are good things in Thailand, otherwise it would be a misstake for so many to retire here, right?

That sounds more like a very smart plan and something that everbody should be able to do. Congratulations to another year in paradise.

I am considering showing income for a marriage extension soon. 

Did any of these offices ask for proof of origin , or where the money comes from?  like a pension or dividends, work etc. Or is the bank letter showing the FTT transfers for one year and letter showing balance of that day enough?

I was asked for it. I used my pension statement for last year and letter stating the amount. I gave them copies of them and showed the originals mailed to me.

I just used a one year and one month bank statement, my bank book that showed over 2 years of monthly transfers and a standard letter from the bank.

Nah, logistics would not be such a big things, due to that a branch of the bank probably will exist in almost the same area.

Not to put you down, but it can not be a reason to complain just because you can not be the first in line.

Thailand... logistics... "probably"... bah, humbug!

 

Not every applicant lives in a town with multiple bank branch options and for some living in deepest bahn nork, even the trip to immigration itself probably triggers the TM30 malarkey.

 

Maybe ask the bank to post-date the letter and just make sure you don't touch the money in the interim?

Yes in Ayuttahya if you are with BBL, ... Luckily ! LUCKLIY .... the bank is just 200m up the road ! but well, once you know what they need, then you go to the bank first, get the lot and then go back to the I Dept.

Yeah, that sounds perfect. Anyway, I would assume that if the bank would be like 1-3 km from the I-Office. That would not pose such a big problem.

This is something that has to be done once a year with the application, and matbe see to that you can show money in account at every or a few 90 day checks. With a little bit of unluck, that would make it about maximum 5 times a year. Maybe it´s just me, but to me that sounds totally manageble without complaining.

Happy to hear that you do not have a problem and it works fine for you, though. Have a great time.

400k if possible, that´s the easiest way. no monthly printouts. Just a bankbook showing the money been there for 2 month before application.

In july I got a bank statement for 6 months feb-July then next January I will get the remaining 6 month balance aug-Jan. 

Would this be ok? It will still show 1 deposit every month for 12 months accompanied by the bank letter snowing the account is still active. 

 

I did this last July for the 6 months because Bangkok bank can make the statement same day for 100bht 

Last year after I knew that I had to do this, I printed out a 6 month statement from BLK, all that is available on line , and took it to my local immigration office, Nakhon Sawan. and ask if two 5 month statements from the internet was okay and she told me NO!  She said that I have to get an "official" 12 month bank statement from the bank.  My branch requires that you fill out a request form and it takes 4-5 business days as it comes from Bangkok.  The branch can only issue the bank balance letter on the same day.  SO as I said earlier I got the statement and went to immigration and they told me that I also needed the bank letter sowing the current balance that day.  This was their current policy and I got the bank statement at a local branch near immigration.  The lady at the bank said that it happens "all of the time". This what Nakhon Sawan required 2 sdays ago.

The letter is to confirm it is your account and is still valid not the balance in your case.

No need for it to be same day at most offices.

I showed one from the day before along with a one month statement to show my most recent transfer since my one year statement was done weeks before it was credited when I did my extension in August.

In Samui they allow the letter to be a week old.

Where are you working? If here and you have a work permit you can show tax payments on your income to prove the 40k income. If not you have transfer at least 40k into a Thai bank from abroad unless you can get proof of income your embassy.

I get a private pension also  but they won't deposit it into a foreign bank even if they have a branch in the US.

There is no reason you can not deposit yourself from the US account to your Thai account using Transferwise or SWIFT or another service.  Immigration accepts multiple deposits for monthly 65k total.
