Love it when people don't read I'm NOT the OP

Yeah sorry about that. Maybe I had beer goggles on. 

While I'm here perhaps you can explain. How easy is it to change which imm office you obtain your extension. Meaning say you live in bkk and staying for a period in Pattaya. Wanting to do extension there. What do you need to do?

The OP implied visiting Pattaya for few months. Did not mention where normally does his extension. Perhaps it's the first.

depends on what you need.  local branches only have limited access to the databases.  not sure if it's 90 days or six months.  older transaction info has to be provided by the branch maintaining the account.

 

for example if you're at CW and need a statement showing funds brought in from outside of thailand, but your account is at silom and the funds came in outside that limited window.....

 

maybe they could fax that to your local branch, but would not be immediate.

I walked over to my nearest branch and they said no problemo for my particular needs. The lady told me no need for advance notice or anything. We shall see Monday or Tuesday morning when I actually try to lay hands on it.

Thanks for trying to help! I'm sure you meant well.

I did my extension a few weeks ago at Jomtien. The Bangkok Bank branch where I opened my account (Pattaya) could only go back six months for statements. They had to order the twelve months of statements from HQ in Bangkok and was asked to come back in a week. I have in the past got the letter from a different branch to my 'home' branch so I doubt the OP will have a problem getting the letter here in Pattaya.

Great! Thanks

 

for monthly income they all told me only from home branch, opened 5 years earlier in Chiang Mai. I think a couple of responders touched on the bigger and more critical question of if a BKK resident normally serviced from coming CW  can do their extension in another IO Province, ie Jomtien while only staying there for a short time?? I don't think so from what I have read previously but will defer to those with far more expertise than me or the Immigration staff where you plan to do it. I can imagine it would be frustrating to get thru the bank obstacle only to run into the "no can do" gate at immigration.

As I've said before on a thread similar to this my bank is BKK my branch is in Pattaya has been for all the time I've lived in Thailand.

I haven't lived in Pattaya for 13 years now. If I need a bank letter I go to my local branch were I now live. I get them to phone my branch and get them to send a statement to my local branch they print and sign it. No issue whatsoever

Where do you get a new bank book when it's full? Normally you visit the branch where it's issued.

You can not extend your stay in another province during a short stay. You have to officially move using the TM28 and the TM30. Some provinces just want the TM30. Then you can extend your stay and do the 90 days reports at the new local immigration office.

False information with Bangkok bank.

I have gone to several different branches for my letter in fact never to the branch where I filed for the account.  

Everything is in their computer system so does not make sense some have limited databases...

never say "false information" in thailand.

what works in one district or city, may not work in others.  YKMV.

application of any rule or regulation is up to the bureaucrat's fengshui that day.

it doesn't have to make sense.  it is what it is.

 

bangkok bank at CW will provide the standard bank guarantee letter anytime as that simply states the balance at the time.  when it comes to confirming foreign source of deposits, they can NOT (per manager on duty) if the deposit was too far back.  i think it's 90 days, could be six months.  i had transferred 800K to my silom account shortly before converting from visa waiver to non-O.

Where did you previously do your extensions. Meaning which imm office.

That's where you need apply for your 12 month extension.

Also the guy you replied to, he "lives in Nong Khai" but obtained an extension Pattaya?

I'm confused.

 

he said he got a letter from the bank in Pattaya go read the post again  !!!

No,it depends on the bank. There's a reason for having an account at a certain branch. An ATM-card and a bank book are issued by a certain branch. Branches belongs to regions. At Kasikorn Bank for example, depending on branch and region you can't get a simple bank statement from a branch other than your own.
