Deposit 800k in bank but less than 2 months until visa expires. Options pls?

Recommended Posts

Looking for options... my Non 0 ME expires late May and I'm working on the assumption... if I leave the country, I may not be able to return. Retirement with 800k in the bank is one but I can't meet the seasoning requirement of 2 months before applying. What can I do?

What is your multiple entry non-o visa based upon.

How many days after your current 90 day entry ends would you be able to have 800k baht in the bank for 2 months?

Thanks.

 

Non-0 based on UK state pension. Both the visa and my current 90 days ends last week in May. Original plan was to do a border run mid may but that's looking very unlikely. I can get the money in a Thai bank next week but that will only be about 6 weeks seasoning, not the 2 months required.

I'm in a similar situation, and must try for a Non-immigrant visa family basis to give my money time to season.

I suggest you transfer the 800k baht as soon as possible.

I am sure there will still be the availability for short extensions in late May you could get. Under the current memorandum there is even an allowance to request the requirements for a extension to be waived. Or in the worst case doing the the extension late and paying a overstay fine.

Thanks for your help. I can do a bank transfer this week.

 

Is the seasoning time 8 weeks or 2 months? If it's 8 weeks I'll only be a day or two adrift. When should I go to immigration to apply?

It is 2 months. If you transferred it and it was credited to you account today March 31st you could apply on May 31st.

It is not three month before extension anymore?

Thank you Sir, this is what I thought I understood, but it is something that we must be absolutely certain 100% this is why I allowed myself to ask YOU the questionthis. I wonder besides what would happen in case of error ... but I prefer not to know, so thank you again😊

Ubon Joe is right. Should be OK. Things may be loosened up a bit if borders are closed.

Move the money ASAP
