New Visa-O rules on Health Insurance

Recommended Posts

Hello expats.

I am wondering about the new rules in regards of the one year Visa-O. It seems to me there is still a lot of confusions as so many times here in Phuket immigration.

 

Someone I know from Australia just did the extension for another year and he did not had a health Insurance. Apparently they made him pay 30'000thb. to make it go away (basically making a health insurance in the office was my thought but don't know if this is true).

 

It says ( where to find this information is unknown to me) that the new Visas-O holders must have a health insurance covered 400'000 Thb. as a minimum coverage. Some say all expats must have an health insurance and some others say no, only if you arrive as a first time applicant to the visa -0. Another info I hear yesterday that some European citizens like Germany, Switzerland and Austria do not ned a health insurance, if they already have one and need to extend for another year.

 

I am really confused what is true and would be happy if the immigration or someone who really knows, can shed some light into this and post this on the Thai immigration website.

Dear Ubonjoe.

May I ask, where you got this information from?

Orders and plenty of reports in the forum. One of the hot topics of the last monts.

Maybe my last post may be of interest:

https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1136904-getting-rid-of-non-o-a-specific-case/?do=findComment&comment=14864241

And that's consistent with other reports.

Even the immigration officers suggest to get a standard Non O visa.

 

If you have 100% watertight proof that Phuket immigration required health insurance on a Non O, then post it.

A mate was offered a solution for his Non O-A debacle for less at Jomtien (meeting other requirements).

Hey everyone this is just another fake topic posted just for the purpose of confusing people

Dumb it down for me...For what purpose?    

Confusing people seems to be much effort without reason.
