Non O Visa change requirements

Recommended Posts

I'm living in Hua Hin. I have the next appointment to renew my non-o visa (not married) in December and would like to switch from the 800k Baht scheme to the monthly income scheme. My pension has been coming into my Thai bank account every month for 4 years now. How do I have to proceed?

It will not be a problem to it if you have followed the rules that you had 800k baht in the bank for 3 months after you applied and then 400k baht until you apply for the extension using the 65k baht income option.

You will need a 12 month statement showing the transfers of at least 65k baht and proof they came from abroad if not shown on them when you apply. You also need the standard bank letter confirming your account.

Thank you, Ubonjoe. I have around 62k Baht/Month, so its possible to compensate the difference with the 200k Baht i have in my fixed bank account constantly?

The 200k baht would be enough to reach the required 800k baht total of annual income and money in the bank for 2 months to use the combination option.

Best to total your income 2 months before and guess your income for the remaining 2 months based upon the current exchange rates.

Maybe I'm a little complicated, but: Do I need a Statement from my Swiss Embassy for my Pension, if yes: When I have to do this; 2 Months before I renew the Visa or when I renew the visa in december?

Not sure they will ask for the pension statement. If they do it would not need to be dated 2 months before you apply.

OK, I'm prepared now, thanks!

Normally they would ask for an income letter from your embassy showing your monthly pension,but now during the Covid-19, maybe not. But who knows?

His does not do them. They will only provide a statement that immigration will not accept for proof of income.

I thought the Swiss income letters were nearly ironclad, as they are based on govt pensions, the proof of which has to be submitted thru vetted channels. And all this can be done by mail, no physical need to go to the embassy. I would think, then, that covid has not interfered with this procedure....

I have seen reports of the Swiss embassy not doing them.
