Savannakhet non-O (retirement) document question

Recommended Posts

Hi all.


I'll be heading to Savannakhet after the first of the year to pick up a new non-O (retirement) visa. I have looked at all the requirements and have all but one squared away. As noted below, item 5 is not particularly clear. Even with ubonjoe's good translation, it is still not clear what document is needed. Is is merely a form I fill out swearing I am retired and then the consulate stamps it? Is there some standard form that is used? Has anyone done a non-O (retirement) visa at Savannakhet recently who can enlighten me on what they are actually looking for? 


Many thanks

There is no standard from for the proof of retirement. 

A simple affidavit stating you are retired would work. I think they would accept about anything with a embassy stamp on it.

Perhaps a certified copy of your SSA statement if getting it would work (check with embassy to see if they would do it). Or a affidavit attached to it stating it is true and correct.
