Maybe Trat not accept the Income Letter from the Consul-General for Austria and Germany in Pattaya.

Maybe only accepted by Immigrations Chonburi, or maybe only the one in Jomtien. 

You are really Lucky Luke😄

I heard 3 months before and 12 months of 400k afterwards...

I am wondering why your post got the mocking reactions it did. In another similar thread I just found this out also.  I have heard 2 and 3 months before so did 3 to be safe but the 400k for a year was a total curveball. Can't imagine why a 400k deposit is mandatory to stay in a bank when the income method is used. According to Ubon Joe it's been in effect since March 2019. Wish Immigration woulda told me that when they gave me my extension.

It is not required if you are using the income option.

The police order allowing transfers into a Thai bank for the income option went into effect in December of 2018.

The order stating 800k baht for 2 months, then for 3 months after the date of application and then 400k baht in bank until you top it up for the next extension went into effect on March 1st of 2019.

The Austrians, Belgians, Dutch, French, Germans who use the services of the Consul-General of Austria/Germany in Pattaya and go to Immigration Jomtien are all lucky.

So far.

2 months before and 3 months after since March 1 2019. Then never below 400k until 2 months before next extension when you have to top it up to 800k again. This is old news.

Yes he could, however in the past, the only thing that worked was a letter from the embassy or consulate.

On the other hand, he does not have access to his bank account, that is managed by his daughter.

Go with the flow, i.e. let him ask his daughter to make a PDF-print of this german bank-account showing the monthly income he receives, and mail that to him.

Alternatively, he could politely but firmly request the not-so-bright volunteer to let your friend talk to an officer in charge.  When refused take out a note-book and ask for the Volunteers name and start writing it down, if that doesn't get him access to a 'real' immigration officer, take out mobile phone and call the IO Helpline 1178 to explain the rogue situation.
