Change Retirement to Family Extension, anyone do this?

Recommended Posts

I have been here the last 13 years on retirement extensions,

but due to all the red tape and unknown future rules,

I am thinking of changing to Over 50 Family Dependent on Thai Son Resident.

Seems there are no other requirements than listed below.

Anyone having done this have information or know of any other requirements ?

 

Family Extension
2.19 In the case of being a family member
of a Thai resident (applicable only to
parents, spouse, children, adopted
children, or spouse’s children):
Each permission shall be granted for no
more than one year.

(1) The alien must have been granted a non-immigrant visa (NON-IM).
(2) The alien must have proof of relationship.
(3) In the case of spouse, the relationship must be de jure and de facto: or
(4) In the case of children, adopted children, or spouse’s children, said children,
adopted children, or spouse's children must not be married, must live with the alien as
part of the family, and must not be over 20 years of age except in case of the person
hereof is of illness or disability and cannot live without support of father or mother: or
(5) In the case of parents, the father or mother must be 50 years of age or over.

Does your son have permanent residence or is he Thai.

If he is Thai you would apply under clause 2.18 for being his parent.

He is Thai, but over 21, and I will be his Dependent Father living in His House.

 

(5) In the case of parents, the father or mother must be 50 years of age or over.

Clause 5 seems a little ambiguous, as in who is the parent? Is the Alien caring for a Thai spouses parent or in your case Whatup, you are the parent?? Good luck with this and hopefully you will be better informed after meeting with the immigration boffins. There is always a way and maybe this is one of them.

This from the required documents for an an extension under clause 2.19.

"4. Copy of residence permit and copy of alien residence certificate"

 

Clause 2.18.

"2.18 In the case of being a family member of a Thai national (applicable only to parents, spouse, children, adopted children, or spouse’s children):"

"(5) In the case of parents, the father or mother must maintain an average annual income of no less than Baht 40,000 per month throughout the year or must have deposited funds of no less than Baht 400,000 to cover expenses for one year.
In case the father of mother requests to be under maintenance of children, the age of father or mother must be 50 years of age or over.
For other necessary cases, the Commissioner or Deputy Commissioner of Immigration Bureau is granted the authority to make decisions regarding approval on a case-by-case basis."

This is interesting. we have my wife's 17 yo daughter living with us. One of the problems with a marriage extension (if you need to travel out of Thailand) is the time for it to be approved while it is sent to Bangkok.

 

Does anyone know if similar rules are applied to a family extension
