It could be an option

i have to calculate the total cost of the double operation and also

be sure to have at the end the good document as a probe for the IO

it's not going to be easy at all but thank you for the idea.

Moving to Cambodia with or whiteout could also be at a cost ….. and could eventually be done at a later stage if other solutions did not work out good .

Anyway good luck wished .....I am out of TH. May 2022 as no anchors on me....

 Why would you want to get an O visa when you have been extending on an annual basis for many years? Nothing prevents you extending again. 

Because Retirement Extensions based on an O-A original entry now require health insurance.

got it.  thanks.  is there a multi entry permit option at that time or does one just get re-entry permits as one needs, in case they come and go?

You have full choice over this. I rarely leave country more than once so I pay for a single exit re entry at 1000THB. So the max cost for staying a year on year here is 1900THB for the extension and maybe an extra 1000THB for a re - entry. YMMV.

Have I missed something ?

Besides a couple of bogus reports , People are reporting business as usual doing extensions. (no matter what their original Visa entry)

I am yet to see a first hand account of an extension needing to show insurance. On the other hand, I have seen posts saying did an extension today (originial OA) and nobody asked for insurance.

Mods seem to be closing most of the threads as they don't like multiple threads, but I spend time on this board and have not got the impression you have.

I hope you are correct. Do you have a link to a report of a Non-Imm-OA Permission of Stay holder doing a Retirement Extension, after Nov 1st, not requiring insurance?

I read the thread as well, I am one of the first posters to ask the OP for clarification. Its a new poster (3rd post) posting un-substantiated <deleted>. 

 

In my opinion the thread should be deleted.

 

If people were getting extensiones knocked back or asked for insurance for an extension, the Thaivvisa server would be crashed by now.

 

10 days after the changes and not one first hand account.

The second link I added later seems more conclusive. But that thread got locked out.

I don't know how many retirement Extensions Jomtien process each week, I only hear it is well down, and expect it is a small percentage of those who actually started with an O-A (O-Multiples were the easy way to come to live in Thailand many years ago). And how many of those are TV Posters? They may well be busy searching out insurance or going to Laos for a Non-Imm-O!

Yes you can apply for a 90 day non immigrant visa (category O) entry at immigration.

Info here: https://www.immigration.go.th/content/service_80

Many thanks for this Joe.

Could I just confirm then that my link states the requirements for changing reason to one based on being the legal father of a Thai child.

https://www.immigration.go.th/content/service_78

 

I currently reside here on a 12 month permission to stay based on an original Non 'B' visa.

 

When I posed this question to my local immigration office I was told that I must leave the country and apply for a Non "O" and then return to Thailand

If you are thinking about changing from a Non OA to an O to get around the insurance issue.

What are you going to do when they require O's to also have insurance? And you know they will, sooner..not later...🥴

Not sure who you aim the question at, but people will face that problem when they have to, at least a year hence. (It will be the retirement Extension that is incorporated, not the O-Visa).

Yes but it can only be done if you have a tourist visa or visa exempt entry

Dependent upon your local immigration office you should be able to change the reason for your extension from working to one based upon being the parent of a Thai.

I started another thread to try and get some clarification, I would be happy to hear from even one person that has been asked for insurance, doing extension previous OA etc.

They will probably also ask for a letter from your employer stating the date you stopped working.
