Never burned any bridges can move my company anywhere i want. If tomorrow i decide i want to be back in my country i can be there. (if there were flights). I think its stupid to burn bridges at home. You always need to keep your options open. Medical care is always of importance but if you have money you can afford medical insurance.

 

Ever since i moved here 15 years ago i always had medical insurance. Just gives peace of mind.

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.

I have a non O multi entry visa good till Nov 2020, I left Thailand end of Nov 2019 for medical reasons and then the China virus struck which meant no travel, I have since decided I will not be return

I have not dumped my family, you have little or no idea, they support my decision 100%. Would you pay for second class medical care (Chemo therapy for terminal cancer) when you can get excellent profe

100% agree with you. I'm stuck in the UK, my extension expires in January and I fear that I will not be able to get back with pathetic hoop jumping until way after that.  I own my own house in the UK,

Why would you get 'surprises from hospitals, immigration and insurance'? They all spell out what they offer in advance. 

I've just come out of hospital with a 700k hospital bill that was completely paid by my highly reputable, healthcare provider. No questions asked.

Immigration rules don't change that much. They want to deter those that cannot provide for themselves but if you can, and fit the criteria for retirement etc, apart from a slightly annoying 90 day reporting, it's pretty straight forward.

It seems to me you are hearing reports from people who took out sub-standard cover and when the serious stuff happened (cancer being pretty near the top), they realised you get what you pay for. As I mentioned before, my health cover costs 10k per month BUT I am literally covered for absolutely all expenses for as long as those expenses last. There are plenty of things in the world where it's good to save money; I would venture that health insurance isn't one of them.  

You say that with zero evidence.

 

What insurance company pays 100%?

 

I think we need to verify that for you.

 

Post the company so we can research the facts.

Not sure why you would think I was lying about this and I certainly don't appreciate your tone but for the benefit of other, less rude posters; I work through RBi (broker)   https://www.rbimembership.com/ who in turn work through several insurance companies. My most recent insurer has been https://www.imglobal.com who out of a total bill for 700k charged me an excess of 25k which in turn RBi refunded back to me thus meaning I didn't pay a penny.

Happy?

 Or you could now go to Taiwan for "medical" reasons

Don't act as if this special permit is a gimme. On a Taiwan forum, a person said his wife was denied entrance for a medical permit based on maternity medicine (she is pregnant). I have read it is only for serious medical problems. I have an untreated umbilical hernia from  a failed surgery I had in Taiwan at a hospital where I am a regular patient. I will try to get a permit based on having a new surgery to correct it so i can get back home. If I am denied the permit to enter you will know that it will only be given for serious medical emergencies or problems. They will not be given out for regular check-ups.

You went from loving the country that you were born in, to hating it and moving to Thailand.

That is very common behaviour amongst a certain percentage of longstayers here, specially with the Dutch. Waste of time to reason with them too.

Same same but different as those veerrryy boring expats who did have a 400-800K deposit but otherwise live under a stone. 

 

Actually stopped playing in pool teams due to such guys. Essentially they lived even more bored lives back home so a Junta ordered lifestyyle sounds good to them thus they tell us all is good and never changed. Even the obvious misery as a result is right under their noses, they deny. We can't ruin their fantasy cuz they gave up on life before it started and this is their final station.

There is nothing to do, just wait and we will get a new extension. But I guess that the people who didn't see the 2 first extension coming also can't see the third one ? Aging is something that seems very bad !

I have a 1 year non immigrant ed visa, done on May 2020. I just have to go at immigration every 90 days. I was really bored about tourist visa and going out to the border all the time. Now am very happy in Thailand and I can apply for another ed visa after 1 year as well.

 

I wish good luck for those that are into amensty but I think that if you will leave after will be very difficult to come back in Thailand

this looked great until you read the stories of thai language test regardless of what you are actually studying, but that non-o status gives you options for sure (400k in bank 2 months and marriage, work permit/business visa) life gets a whole lot easier on Non-O

I go to school every week and I like to learn Thai language so no problem for me about getting tested

There is no "free medical care" in Canada. Are you aware that  most provinces have residency requirements?  For example in Ontario;  You must be physically present in Ontario for 153 days in any 12-month period to qualify for OHIP medicare. 

 

 

I am not sure what residence requirements have to do with anything or the cost of healthcare. Of course there are residence requirements as there should be.
