Phuket Immigration says help coming for expats caught in permit-to-stay crisis

By The Phuket News




PHUKET:-- The Phuket Immigration Office is asking any foreigners staying on a non-immigrant B (Business) visa who cannot satisfy the minimum income requirement for a one-year permit-to-stay to delay filing their annual application pending a “possible” temporary reprieve issued by officials in Bangkok.


The news comes only after the issue was brought to the attention of The Phuket News, whereby foreigners legally living and working on the island are no longer earning the same income as before the outbreak, and now face having their usual application for a one-year permit to stay being refused.


The ‘visa amnesty’ issued by Cabinet approval allows such foreigners to stay until Sept 26, yet the Immigration Bureau has urged foreigners to start filing their usual applications early to avoid a crush in the run-up to the amnesty expiring.

Haven't seen one of these "You aren't rich like what I am, you shouldn't be here" posts for a while. They're almost as bad as "If you don't like it here, go back to where you came from".

This money thing often crops up in forums... 800k is a paltry amount of money to keep in an account to ensure one can remain in the country.  If people ares truggling to follow this, then surely

20,000 pounds or $25,000 is a paltry amount of money?
