2 options yes but only 1 is easy as the conversation option has the requirement of a foreign currency transfer of 800,000 Baht

Other nationalities have the option of providing income proof to make up the total but not the British as they cannot get an embassy letter. 
 

Some offices may not necessarily insist on 5.3, just the money.

Correct. I choose to opt for non o at Vientiane several years ago because I was concerned about proof money came from o/s. I fly in with it in folding aud. Anyway both options available. Thinking if folk can afford it best to lock away 800k in an FD account using money in bank method is best option.

OP, one part of your post mentions that you refuse to provide onward flight prior to obtaining visa. That won't work.

Immigration has not updated their website to allow for proof of foreign transfers instead of a embassy letter. They will accept a at least one transfer for applications. But of course more is better.

Treetops and Woodworker. Thanks for your response.

However having posted three letters. Made several attempts to register online with the Embassy and failing resulting in being blocked from the site. The phone when eventually answered is then left hanging. I have given up. I have a return air ticket dated 86 days after my arrival BKK. So I have no choice but to arrive with tourist visa exemption and hit a border crossing. Staying in Surin Cheong Chom is the nearest, but they will extend visa for 14 days.

Can anyone confirm whether Aranyaprathet IMO can issue a 30 day extension and do it twice.

Looking forward to replies before arriving BKK in Jan.

You apply for extensions at a immigration office. If in Surin you could apply for a 30 day extension of your 30 day visa exempt entry at Kap Choeng immigration for a fee of 1900 baht.

If you do a border hop a Chong Chom you would get a 30 day visa exempt entry.

Any immigration office will do a 30 day extension. Same for any border crossing that would get you a new 30 day visa exempt entry.

 

Edit: Forgot to mention you visa problem. You could apply for a single entry tourist visa at one of the honorary consulate in the UK. Most will do it while you wait when you make an appointment to get it.

When details of a flight booking are requested, I would instead give a "travel itinerary, subject to timely receipt of the visa" with an accompanying letter explaining the reason why I cannot supply a flight booking.

I have posted three letters to date to the Embassy in London without a reply.

Thanks Ubonjoe, I do happen to have met a few people earlier this year who were refused 30 day extensions at Kap Chong and even crossing over at Chong Chom failed to provide same. A fortnight was all that was provided. I did spend 11 years doing the 90 day visits to Kap Chong with previous annual retirement visas. Hence my asking about Aranyaprathet and 30 day extension. 

Regards, and thanks again for responding.

I would at least try at Kap Choeng immigration for the 30 day extension.

You must of done the border hop at Chong Chom over 3 years ago when you got a 15 day entry since that rule was revoked about 3 years ago. You will get a 30 day entry there.

That crossing is the worst crossing to try and do a border hop for a new 30 day visa exempt entry.
