Difference between a None O and a None O -A

Recommended Posts

I am confused, not a rare occurrence for me when I look at visa rules.  Can anyone tell me the difference between getting a None O and a None O-A,  or indeed a None O-X? I have a None O,  with 2 Extensions of Stray, but others in my position (married, Thai wife, retired, over 60) were given None O-A. I have checked the UK Thai Embassy website, but that doesn't help much in explaining the difference.  Can anyone here do that?  Ubonjoe perhaps?  Mine is a extension based upon retirement, but my original None O was based on marriage to a Thai. Immigration changed it at my first extension, no idea why.

This Agent/legal firm contends that a Non-O visa holder will be unofficially grandfathered out of the future insurance requirements...

That sound like a lot on guess work on his side.

As of now Non-O are still being issued to for retirement extensions.

But you would agree that one should get a Non-O sooner rather than later?...

I would agree on anything to steer clear of the Non O-A and the nonsense insurance it now come with.

What is reported here appears to be correct, but, when you go to either the Thai Embassy, Washington DC website or the New York Consulate web site, they both list only two "reasons" for an "O" Visa : Visit to Family and Volunteering, nothing is said about "retirement" as reported here

not sure I understand the question.  I went to Immigration after one year on the O and  got a one year Extension of Stay. During the one year period of the visa, I left the country every 90 days and was then granted another 90 days, after the 12 months, got the extension. Does that answer your question?
