Retirement extension via monthly B65K rejected in Khon Kaen

Recommended Posts

I am admin for an expat forum in Khon Kaen. There have been three disturbing reports recently about failures to obtain retirement extensions via the monthly B65K method.

The first involved a person who had his 12 B65K deposits, but on his bank statement, only 11 of them showed as foreign transfers even though he was able to prove that the 12th deposit was from offshore using something other than his bank book.  He was eventually allowed after making special arrangements with the I/O.  

Just the past week two applicants were flatly refused the B65K method even though they claim they complied with all the regulations and that their paperwork was in order.  The I/O insisted that they use the B800K method instead.  One guy happened to have the B800K, and so was able to get his extension after regrouping and sorting out things with his bank.  The other guy had to revise his plans and go to another Imm office and apply for an extension based on marriage.

This is disturbing as for the past year, these threads have made it quite clear that B800K or B65K monthly were both acceptable options so long as you complied with all the regulations.

Anyone else have similar experiences?

Is it indeed possible to 'shop around' for friendly IOs to apply for an extension of stay?

That would be interesting to know when there are differences between provinces in how the OA health-insurance requirement is interpreted.

Technically not. However, in practice it happens, so I have heard. I am not sure, but possibly the wife of they guy I mentioned owns a house in the other jurisdiction.  Although, nothing would stop him from returning to Khon Kaen to apply for marriage. Again, I dunno, but assume it has someting to do with the fact that he can come up witht he B400K, but not B800K.
