Retirement visas can be got from inside Thailand , no one is getting kicked out . It just the people who were pushing their luck and hoping to get a free visa amnesty extension who are having to

With one hand the government is buzy to make small entry visa for high spenders, which maybe will not work at all, with the other hand they are buzy to kick a lot of middle spenders, covid free farran

The Thai economy has already been thrown from a balcony but the elites think everything is fine because they have not yet hit the ground. Very simply: Every Westerner in Thailand is adding somethin

The Philippines and Cambodia, just in the region.  More if you include all of Latin America and the Caribbean.

 

ASK their landlords, and the shop-owners where they spend their money, if they want that income gone.  Those foreigners have an income well over that of the average Thai - are supporting Thais by staying.

Philippines and Cambodia have an absolutely horrible infrastructure starting with the most basic things such as internet. I could never live in these countries.

 

A lot if not the majority of the Thai landlords don't even declare their rental income so why would the government care?

 

In this country one hand shakes the other and the regular people are in many cases just as corrupt and two faced as the government agencies are.

A lot of speculation in this post and who told you this fantasy that Thai women go husband shopping overseas and then said man returns to Thailand with her? 😂

I strongly believe that what FINKS is saying is absolutely incorrect and this must be refuted. The Thai government is NOT, repeat NOT, kicking out people who are legally here, or meet criteria set by laws. I don't know where you come from, but show me a country in the world, that allows foreigners to stay in their countries illegally. I would like to point out that Farangs like you, I am referring to FINKS, are responsible for the Thai people doubting the value of having even decent foreigners. The way you refer to some Thai people, Thai ladies, shows your ignorance and arrogance.

There was a post on one of the threads that rang the most true to me. I can't find it now. It made it clear that this isn't something the government is doing to foreigners, it's to their own people. They want lots of businesses to fail so the elites can buy up their properties cheap. I find that incredibly sad.

 

From what I can understand $1000 USD per agent visa is going in the pocket of an immigration chief. I'm told they're all millionaires. If I was asked to give that money to the poor or to help the environment of this country I would have been fighting to be the first to sign up. It is a shame that to be an expat here means having to check your moral compass at the border.

 I thought agent assisted visas were <30K baht. How then can the TI chief be getting $1000 US /visa. You have zero credibility. You're just making things up from you bar stool.

BTW I don't know the true cost because I do things myself, I only read thing about agents on TVF.

An Elite visa is reported to cost 500K and is good for 5 years.  That's about $15k dollars. Divided by 5 years is about $3k/year (US dollars). I don't know if a yearly fee is on top of this on top of this. I don't know the details, but if someone needs to stay it's a possibility. 

Maybe if you research it you'll find out something different, but this is my understanding.

I think your missing something and are just replying to make your point about some people that can't afford an elite visa . The numbers that are talked about here 50.000×30.000×12 are the OP's fake numbers about the money that thailand is alledgedly missing out on .

It's not 50,000 visa holders that are affected. Maybe a couple hundred. Then assuming that they spend an average 30K/month is pure speculation. Is buying a few pints of beer really helping the Thai economy? 

They don't all need to get an elite visa and can go the way of asking an agent to help.

Seems like the things you read are not being picked up by your own brains and seems like you are just here to bash on other people's replies . I think you should go find a hobby . Or is this your hobby ?? The checkered flag has been waved for you better stop replying because your replies don't make any sence and everything after the checkered flag doesn't count anymore 😁

I don't want the same hobby as you. I guess you can't understand that your preferred options are gone and you need a plan B. Their are only 5 working days left to plan. Good luck.

Depends on the visa-type.  If you aren't retired, you may need a district-level sign-off - and that guy wants 10K+ Baht per-signature - whether to "overlook" the faked money - or even more for Non-B cases of "Have to go out for a new visa" (no such law).

 

It also depends what office - CW-Bangkok can be 10K more expensive per-type than Jomtien, for instance.

Pretty simple story. I have lived and worked in China, Myanmar and then for the last 2 1/2 years in Cambodia. Thailand is where I went to the beach, the doctor, the dentist and made major purchases, like a computer. I came here for two weeks in March on a 30 day, and then the border to Cambodia was closed to US citizens. Now, due to the pandemic, my job in Cambodia is finished. I planned on retiring in December here anyway, so it was no great loss. I tried to start the retirement visa process in the Koh Samui IO and was pretty much laughed out of the place. "You have to leave the country to do that." Ha, ha, ha. They, of course, knew full well that I wouldn't be able to get back into Thailand. I tried to show financials, etc., and they were having none of it. I don't know how to bribe people on my own and wouldn't even begin to attempt it. I'm on an embassy letter extension, and yes, much to my chagrin, an agent is next.
