I have learned from Pacific Cross that they will now consider applicants to age 80.

 

For O-A compliant health insurance policies.

He is doing an extension of stay. My understanding is that the financial requirements for money in the bank are the same for extending from a non OA as they are for a non O, ie. 800,000 for 2 months prior, 800,000 for 3 months after and not allowed to drop below 400,000. The problem appears to be that if you are extending from a non OA immigration are requiring health insurance. The original new rule as I remember only stated that insurance was needed when applying for the non OA but immigration seem to be applying it to extensions from a non OA as well.

Agree it’s important to many, myself and all my Ozzie mates have extensions of OA. I asked an agent last week who was unsure at this stage regarding the insurance at extension time. Surely someone would have extended by now?

I have been living in Thailand for almost 10 years now. Each year I have returned to the US for my annual physical, taxes, and to visit family. Each time I obtained a Non-OA long stay VISA at the Royal Thai Consulate in Los Angles. I am now 75 going on 76 (May) and cannot find any health insurance for my age in Thailand. I am planning another trip to the US in March 2020. I am looking at a Non-O VISA married to Thai this time and apply for extended stay based on marriage once I get back in Thailand. I have a documented retirement income in excess of 165,000 Baht per month but don’t have the 400,000 in the bank.  My wife has house book, Thai ID and Passport. Additionally, I have an adopted Thai son. What are my best options? Does anyone have some suggestions for me? Thanks in advance.

I am 74. O A visa extended 5 times for retirement. Just took out Pacific Cross. 90 000 baht premium and many exclusions including first 300 000 baht per year for three years for cardiac and other issues. It is a 90 000 baht ticket to get retirement extension.  Immigration laws give me no choice. I go today for next extension. Should be OK.

Did IO advise you Insurance was required please?
