What number desk does one take the 800,000 bank book to?  I am talking about 90 days AFTER obtaining the year's visa/extension. 

The same desk where you applied for the extension at.

For those who have been granted  extensions since the new rules have come into effect it  would seem reasonably obvious that come next application is when a check on keeping the 800k for 3 months  after will be the acid  test. That Jomtien has been asking for  verification at that 3 month point is irrelevant to the next annual round of the game.

the bank book next time around will show if funds have stayed within the limits .. but the extension is granted with rules . so may be we could have it taken away if not stuck to the rules .. but how come some people don't have any funds at all .. how do they get a 90 day  showing funds ? think the funds are agood idea means always got a back up for  a major operation ..  then get a flight home ..

Desk 8 at Jomtien Immigration. No number needed.

You can get around every official requirement if using an agent.

You need a 12 months bank statement as proof of the 800k 90 days after the extension and never below 400k until next application.

If you refer to those who maybe use agents, I believe they are never asked to return after 90  days.

so we are saying the people who use agents don't have to do a 90 day stamp ????? so in effect they have a 1 year extension  with no rules.

Agent can do 90 day report for you but still shows your pp.

Returning with bankbook 90 days was only stupid requirement at Jomtien and couple of other im office. Recent reports stating that the "form" is now not being handed out and those that do return are having io just glance at it. No record. Nothing. Was a crook from the start.

As for agent reference above, I only see one issue with this. If in future you decide to obtain the extensions yourself, then you would need start afresh with new non o.

They have to do the 90 day 'address report' but not the Jomtiem special show the money 90 days after renewal.

A 90 days check for the 800k still in the bank is not same as the 90 days report. You don't seem to understand that agents don't work for free. The 90 days report is free and you can report in person, via mail or online. So if a person pay let's say 1000 baht per year for an agent to take care of his 90 days reports, he still has to hand over his passport to the agent and then somehow get it back. 4 times a year. So,you tell me,does this seem like less work than doing it yourself?

There are people using agents to do the 90 days reports as well. Imo totally crazy. They pay for something that's free.

From the various reports above there seems to be no clarity on this issue.

That was my thought, not bother, they don't seem to be logging it anyplace so who is to know different. After March they may well start checking all renewals (retirement based on money in the bank) for compliance during the previous year anyhow... making this redundant. 

I have to go get a Re-Entry Permit soon so will take the updated bank book at the same time and see if anyone is interested. 

From the posts so far there still seems to be no clarity on this issue.

Can I ask where did you get the info - 'After March they may well start checking all renewals......'

I will go ask at the 'retirement' desk today as I have to do the 90 day.
