Hi, today I have learned that,  if I leave Thailand,, I can not come back with a Non-O Retired Visa  with Multiple Re-entry permit. They are going to send me back from the Airport.  They do accep

That's the way I read it as well. I had to go back this November for a wedding. Now not going. I have a retirement visa done on the 800k in a Thai bank. I am married to a Thai so I might get back who

Maybe you can get your money back for this if you can't use it?

If you are married or have a Thai child (With the child I am not 100% sure) then you can come back even with a retirement extension. It's not depending on the Visa/Extension... more of if you have some ties in Thailand, which I think is more accurate as only look on the Visa/extension.

 

But still as I wrote in another thread.. it's sad for the retirement group, that they can't come back.

 

Another big questions would be even you could come back not mean you easily can come back..... as from some countries there are still long lists of people waiting for being able to come back. Even the lists become shorter than for example in July. I heard of some people who had the luck for coming back, they waited on the lists for 3 months!

It is very sad for people on retirement Visa who can't come back here but think of the Australians who can't even get back to their own country and are in terrible plight with no money stuck abroad I believe also some Canadians in the same position and many foreigners from different countries cannot get home because they cannot afford the huge airfares. It seemed that Thailand is doing a lot better than most countries their citizens can get home and those married to Thais

NON-O Retired Visa Is Not Enough To Come Back To Thailand

This situation is clearly known for a long time already. Nothing new at all and it will not change in the near future.

The OP must have slept for a long time if he did not know about it.

No you won't come back I doesn't matter that you are Married You got an Extension Based on Retirement So on Paper you Ain't Married That's the way they see that at Immigration ,Good luck and change back to the Extension based on Marriage.

Let's see how the situation changes. I adopted a retirement extension simply because I was able to accomplish it in one day at CW instead of coming back after 30 days' consideration. I am married to a Thai, both here & in Canada (married twice, must love her!). The big worry for us oldies (I am 70) will be any insurance requirement for re-entry. If this situation changes when I'm due to March, I'll shift back to a "Thai Wife" visa.

Yes, I fully understand the motivation to change from Marriage to Retirement extension. and up of the 800K of money in the bank it's easier in many ways (especially you can become the extension the same day and not need to go again in 30 days. 

 

The other parts with the Insurance, I was thinking at the moment it's only if you had a O-A Visa to begin with. When you started with an ordinary O Visa and then do extensions based on retirement it should not involve the Insurance. (I think the Idea of the Insurance good, but they should accept every Insurance company and not only the cheap overpriced Thai Insurances. Especially as the people who really have in Insurance already not want to change to a bad one if they have a good one already.
... but who know what will happen in a few years even with the marriage extension. We only know when they decided something.

Thanks for that, but I'm not going to do one based on marriage. To many papers to fill out. I much prefer the 1 page + 1 Snap and letter from my bank. Last one took an hour including getting letter, now good for a year +. Simple.

I also like the bit of interest I get on my monies here. Nothing when it's in the UK.

 

Anyway I have no intention of going anywhere at present. Having to do 14 days in a Hotel Cell on my return is something I'll never do. Looks like I'm here till things change. Big thankyou Buddha.
