TM7 "Reason of necessity" item (6) & (a)

Recommended Posts

I entered the Kingdom before October 21, 1998. I have been permitted to stay in the Kingdom every year since. However, I stayed on a family visa, "Married to a Thai", not a retirement visa. I changed my status from "married to a Thai" to "retirement" last January, 2019 with 800,000 bt. in a Thai bank. I am 77 years old, I have an annual retirement benefit that exceeds 20,000 bt per month. Does anyone know if I qualify for the 200,000 bt. Thai bank balance?

Attached to the order of the Royal Thai Police no.35/2562 dated January 18, 2019

Yes, a friend of mine managed to reduce the bank holdings from 800K to 200K two months ago - smooth, no issue; so happened at the immigration office of Pattaya on Beach Road, Soi 5
