A tax return form accepted by the IR, regarding an income on which tax has been paid should be sufficient. The the British Embassy staff are the worst in the world.

Yes, but a tax return is from the past, and is no guarantee of future income.  The person may have sold all their stock or equities, or properties.  I am sure the original intent of the incomes from a Thai point of view, while simplistic was meant for something such as a Pension.  Obviously there are many types of other income sources.

Let us know when all three countries Embassy's reverse their position.

But you’ve categorically stated they will never be provided again.

It was and is. They are expecting the person to have a monthly guaranteed income from a pension or investment.

Hello,

 

As an American Citizen I have felt the same pain that now U.K. Citizens and Australian Citizens are experiencing , The elimination of Income Verification letters not being able to share Pension Databases with Thailand.

Hopefully at minimum these Countries can at least do what American Embassy did for American Citizens in Thailand.

1. Allow Direct Electronic Bank Deposit of your Pension.p into Thai Bank Account.

2. Give a Grace period for one more year of Income Verification Letter for VISA with Thai Immigration to allow time during the adjustment of the change.

3. Thai Immigration does allow either lump sum of 400,000 or 800,000 THB in A Thai Bank Account 60 Days prior to Visa and must stay in the Bank 90 Days after Visa Approval , Or monthly proof of either 40,000 or 65,000 THB in a Thai Bank Account with a letter from Bank with 1 Years proof of copies of Bank Statements with the monthly deposit being made into your Thai Bank Account.

 

Best Of Luck To All 🙂

The Dutch, at least, better hope they can fake their income letters, because it looks like they're about to get a reduction in their pension.  

Quote

Speaking to the Financial Times, the Dutch pension federation chair, Shaktie Rambaran Mishre, predicted that pension contributions may have to increase by up to 30 per cent over the next few years. “As things stand, around 2 million people are facing cuts from next year,” she said.  https://www.europeanpensions.net/ep/Dutch-govt-expected-to-act-against-looming-pension-crisis.php
