I copy the full 12 months just to be on the safe side. Not been asked for it though.

All extensions for retirement are now 800k for two months prior to application. It changed fom three months when they brought in the new regulations on how much for how long with regard to the 800k.

Just get the single-entry re-entry permit. Such a hassle to do it at the airport.

Depends on whether it's your first extension. If it isn't, you will need a full year to show compliance with 800k for 3 months, at least 400k for 7 months and 800k for the last 2 months before renewal.

I copy the whole book. No biggy as I use this account to ring-fence the cash and have very little other activity on it. I took the other account book just in case but they weren't bothered about it

 

They did take a bit longer than normal scrutinising it last month- seems they are making sure people are complying with the 800k and 400k rules.

 

I am confused when you say your first extension- If you have a retirement permit already and you are renewing it it is three months, not 2 for the money in the bank.

 

Its only the first retirement permit that is two months cash in the bank, which enabled people to set up bank accounts and have cash in them long enough to meet the criteria.

Actually I meant to say it's NOT my first extension, it was actually about my 6th !

 

So all went smoothly yesterday at Phuket Immigration, went at 1pm finished by 2pm.

1pm is not the bext time to go as thats when you go back to pickup the passport the next day.

 

I took 3 months photocopy of bankbook showing 800k/400k+ and MrSmiley outside asked me to copy the entire 12 months. No biggy currently as Zero queue at Photocopying currently and I went back twice cos I'd forgotten to copy my TM6 !

 

Will pickup at 1pm ish today and go for the MultipleReEntry whilst I'm at it....

That's one item I personally wouldn't bother with right now!🙂

 

I usually do the same as you but at last renewal didn't have time and decided to leave it until I was going to leave the country. Ended up saving me 3,800 baht!

I went in yesterday to renew my retirement extension of stay based on money in the bank method.  It was my 7th time with original Non-Immigration O-A visa.  No question asked about health insurance.  Kudos to Phuket Immigration for correct interpretation of directive.  In and out under 10 minutes.  The only gripe is the bank statement.  This year, a 12-month bank statement is needed from the bank.  SCB can print out on-the-spot the 12-month transaction statement and they charged a fee of 200THB on top of the 200THB for the confirmation letter!  Previous years, they charged only 200THB for letter of confirmation and the 3-month transaction statement.  Another year of peace and quiet until another curve ball comes along.

Agreed MM, however in the early days I left LOS without a Reentry permit and it was a trip to Singapore or KL to get a new visa a year later etc etc. I was 5050 this year, decided the 3800thb investment was worth it just in case ....
