Thank you for letting me know. No I didn't know that. But the fee for the agent for switching to a new Visa and paying the school a year further seems to be a little bit expensiv for me. However a like for option 2. 

 

No, I'm not married and under 50 years old. So I'm not planning to staying here forever but I would like to study 1-2 years further. In my case I know I will leave sooner or later. But I wouldn't like to pay for a flight in this time and then maybe the flight get canceled. Like it happened to two of my friends.

 

Thank you for all your answers. Please stay polite to each other.

 

How much is the agent requesting to change the visa for you...?

Can you say..?

And what location are you...?

Hello. I am new to the forum, and there is so much here, i wanted to ask to clarify my situation. I have a Non O, from Laos, not been across the border since the 90 day expired 26th April. It runs out January.

 

Am i correct in assuming that, on or before the 26th of September, i can go to immigration and get 60 days, as i have not done this at all since renewing? If so, that will then take me to mid November and either i find a new way for a visa, or an agent, or, the borders may be open (fat chance) .

 

Thank you for your time

Yes

But I think doing it around mid September would be better or you might find crowds of people at immigration closer to Saturday the 26th and it will still start on the 27th.

If you can meet the 400k baht in a Thai bank for 2 months or proof of 40k baht of income you could apply for a one year extension of stay

Yes, you can do as you outlined.

In addition you could after obtaining you 60 day extension obtain an 12 month permission of stay (extension) to non O (marriage).

That has financial requirements. Either min balance in Thai bank 400k baht or monthly income deposits for 2 months. 

If possible to satisfy that it covers you for next 12 months. Would be best to have the financials in place then apply for your 60 day extension.

Personally, I would apply as soon as you have your finances in place. Many folk have switched to non o marriage already.

I keep reminding everyone about the other option.

 

Many farangs have left and still none can enter. This has left many schools without enough foreign teachers. Walk into pretty much any school right now, they'll want you to start teaching immediately, and will get started on your Non-B visa. Don't think you can do it? Sing some songs, play some games, talk about the Premier League. It's better than nothing.

 

Make a difference for the future of Thailand, its children. Reach For The Power, Teach.

The Visa Agent is located in Bangkok and often time recommend here on the forum. I think it's allowed to say it but PM me if you want to know who it is. He would like to have 37K for one year. 

I'm located in the region of Huahin

Not sure what the point is it covers what i want it to cover. I did not want any outpatient i got enough money to cover that. So why would I have to check my policy ?

What Thai or international medical insurance covers the major medical issues when you age? Think million+ baht medical issues? And how much you are paying?

 

Not the same as free insurance, medicare, etc.

Of course its not the same, but if i go to my country it would not be free either. You pay through taxes. Same if when your here you pay through taxes. My coverage is a million $ that is plenty.

Posted (edited)

good afternoon,

 

here my story of personal agony caused by the thai bs recent restrictions. i m married for 25 years to my thai wife both we are 64 years old. i left thailand in january 2020 for medical treatment bound for my home country germany. then covid struck. now i have cannot return to my wife for those useless restrictions barring me from entering the country where i lived on an extension of stay based on marriage to a thai national. my extnsion is becoming invalid on august 4th 2020, thereafter i would need to apply for a non o single entry in hamburg. however given the current restriction nonsense 1. certificate of entry, 2. covid 19 test 3. fit to fly certificate 4. quarantine hotel 14 days. 5. meeting at the embassy 400 km away. 

i got already a flight with klm and rebooked 3 times til 3.11.2020 with return 29.04.2021. why is a covid 19 test and a medical insurance not enough , why a stupid hotel booking for i have my owen residence in thailand.

I agree a covid 19 test and health insurance coverage euro 95000 is necesaary. I found AXA euro 195 6 months , unlimited treatment expenses and letter provided stating covid 19 is not excluded.  I have also sufficient fundsi n a my thai account.

 

cheers

I think I'll just not renew my tenants lease, sell the house , move up north and buy a better house and fund the wife and our daughter coming here.

Better late than never. Evermore onerous hoops to jump through with the UK government and regular price hikes for settlement visas. I assume your daughter is already a British citizen, so one less problem.  Good luck.

Waiting...

 

Meanwhile in Vietnam they are letting people pay and extend up to 3 months (no limit) I've read some who have already extended 3 times already! Why doesn't Thailand want my money?
