Does anyone publish a list showing the number of applicants from each country over the years?    It would be useful to determine whether it's worth going through the application process.  Fo

Unless you're Indian or Chinese it's likely below 100 each year. In my case I was the first one ever, and apparently nobody else applied after me from same country.

I can imaging the flood of posts on this one, although more details will be helpful no doubt... is there a catch i wonder...

No

For example, if there were 8000 applicants from my home country and only 100 selected, that's one thing. 

I doubt the total applications each year would ever total that much. The chance of you not being able to get it due to your country's quota being reached is very small I would say.

3 years of work permit and paying tax on a ME-O doesn't work, in case anyone asks.

Must be 12 month extensions.

Yes, it needs to be annual extensions from immigration inside Thailand.

Joe, this is what I had always understood, but reading the document it does nto seem to be so for (1) investors and (2) spouses over age 50 (they are required to show proof of income of 65k a year for prior 3 years but no mention of working in Thailand, presumably this could be pension or investment income?)

You probably are reading this outdated document from 2003 that no longer applies. https://bangkokimmigration.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/1.2.2-Notification-of-Immigration-Commissionมีครุฑ.pdf

They stopped accepting applications under this "2.3 Humanitarian reasons as follows:" in it in 2009 or before. I am not sure anybody ever got PR under that category. Not sure why immigration still has it on their website.

Look at this and you will see it requires working for 3 years for marriage and does not list the others. Permanent Residency Requirements June 2019.pdf

It  was the older document which the news article linked to, which is indeed older.   But not under Humanitarian reasons. It was  described under Investment category 2.1.

 

Not that I have 10 million  baht to invest...just curious.

Under humanitarian reasons :

 

3.3.2.  One party or both parties must earn much enough to provide patronage or having annual income of at least Baht 30,000 per month in average, for at least 2 consecutive years before the date of application submission and evidence of tax return is required.

 

was a time this would have interested me but as I'll probably be leaving Thailand next year not worth bothering with now.

The investment category now requires a work permit. The one from 2003 has probably been rescinded but immigration for some reason has not posted the new one.

In that case, that seems to be another benefit of the newly announced (and much snubbed on TVF) TAT program that would offer Elite Card holders a WP if they buy a condo/ invest $1MM USD?  It can put them on a 3 year path to PR that's not available to anyone without a WP...

 

Or am I interpreting it wrong and giving TAT too much credit?

I only know what has been in the news about it.

But I doubt it will result in them getting PR.
