Renewal non immigrant o visa 3rd year

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I would like to make sure that to renew non o (marriage visa) for 3rd year, how many months that they require 400K to be in account? 

As 1st year, require 2 mths. 2nd year, require 3 mths. So 3rd year, need 3 or 4 mths?

It is 2 months for every application for a extension of stay based upon marriage to a Thai.

It's always 2 months for marriage extensions.

After the extension , do they also need to keep an additional 3 months in the banks?

No

But they may need to keep it in the bank until they get the one year extension stamp near the end of the 30 day under consideration period.

Under the published rules you can withdraw the lot as soon as you’ve applied for the extension. However, some offices insist it stays in the account during the 30 under consideration period. So if you need to withdraw any funds during that 30 days it’s best to ask your local office first. After that you can empty the account anytime, but must top up again at least 2 months before your next application day.

Wow! This is so much more lenient than the 3 months that retirees have to keep in their bank account.

The OP made no mention of requiring an extension, only about renewing his visa. The answer to that if he renews his via in Savannakhet or HMC then he does not need to show evidence of 400,000. There is also no indication of him having applied for an extension before as he is unaware of how long money should be in the bank.

He is applying for a third visa. If he had an extension for his second year he would be aware that the money would not need to be 'on show' for three months. Unless he was misinformed about that at the time, a year ago.

Most people refer to an extension of stay (Permit) as a visa - because it is.

 

The OP is clearly asking about the seasoning required to extend his stay for a third year.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that, because I've read on here over and over again that an extension is not the same as a visa.

It's 2+3 months with 800k in the bank for retirees, and never below 400k.

But it isn't...it offers no right to 'visit' or 'admission'. (An Extension in conjunction with a re-Entry permit is closer). Graying the difference between a Visa and an Extension of Stay when talking of Thailand certainly causes confusion!
