is it enough to show monthly income when you want to apply for a marriage visa or do you have to have the 400k in thai bank ?

You only need to show proof of 40k baht income. Not both.

Who is telling that you need both. Perhaps they are refusing to accept your proof of 40k baht income.

Which immigration office do you use.

I have read similar experience to yours in the past.

I am on my 12th extension of stay based upon marriage using the 40k baht income option. I used a income affidavit from my embassy for the first 11 and last year showed proof of 40 baht income going into a Thai bank from abroad for over 12 months.

Sorry to steal the topic, but I just realized has marriage visa in Thailand for foreigners. (Based on my experience in US and EU this kind of thing is almost impossible there I haven't even checked this in TH).

 

So it means I don't have to be employed if I have 400K in the bank, do I? I've just finished my 3 years employment, so if my company wouldn't survive covid and I lose my job, can I apply? Currently I'm on non immigrant working visa.

 

Also do you know, marriage visa I can use to apply later for citizenship without paying tax 3 years?

Sadly, the Kap Choeng, Surin Province office has not been accepting the 40K Baht monthly. The main officer there will Only accept the 400K Baht in the bank. I have not tried this year but for 2 years he said NO! So, now I go to Savannakhet and get the ME marriage extension. Not sure if it has changed at that office.

If you have 400k baht in a Thai bank for 2 months in you name only you could change the reason for your extension for working to one based upon being married to a Thai.

No

You need 3 years of at least 40k baht income from working with a work permit to apply for citizenship.

Doing it yourself is not a hassle and will save a pot of cash.

it all depends on where and who you have to deal with, some easy some a nightmare, as they can do what they feel like? Chon buri can take three days, ''Chock Dee'' lad. 

Please explain---Why do you say 3 days in Chonburi/Jomtien. Max one hour if you have all your documents as required.
