Firstly, I cannot leave Oz - until they open flights - and then, I'd hope to wait until they don't require Quarantine anymore? ...... and certainly, I don't want to have to stomp-up another 3 Mill.

 

You can leave Oz easily given your situation. The 3 mil is a red herring and irrelevant to you. The quarantine sucks.

Farookin' ridiculous! Three million Baht earning 0.1% in a Thai bank plus another half million doing nothing in your home country - just how anxious do they think people are? Expect a lot more co

So punters drop eg 5 to 15 million baht on a home and now need to show 3 million to use it   Sounds fair 

Let's face it...this is just another step on the road to clearing out foreigners (apart from their brothers and sisters in China).......It is all part of going down the (silk) road to become the next

My suggestion would be to come back when retirement visa/extension holders are allowed back, rather than this 3 mill baht requirement for property owners. It’s probably not far away. However if you are like me, your OA visa/extension may have expired by then.

Yes, my (old) Retirement Visa had expired. My Plan was (prior Covid) .... to just go up on a 30 day Tourist Visa and then apply again for a Retirement Visa. But the (normal) 30 Day Visa may not come back in use - for a long time?

Unfortunately, flights out from Oz are NOT possible at present - maybe by the end of 2020 - or early 2021? I am NOT in a desperate hurry - so hope to wait until NO more Quarantine.

They are, things have loosened since October. I see now your extension to stay has expired; that's a pain in the <deleted> but at least they've stared issuing Non-O again, be a few months before they reinstate visa exempt I reckon. 

 

With you on the quarantine issue though, until they open a "travel bubble" without quarantine and ditch the $25K in the bank for 6 months not rushing either.

I don't buy property for investment...I buy to live in.

Exactly - because you chose this country to live in and buy a property .  Way ahead of Vietnam (for the moment anyway)!

They are now. From the Thai embassy in Aus.

 

Certain airlines are now permitted to operate semi-commercial flights to Thailand, such as, Emirates (EK384), Etihad (EY406), EVA (BR211), Qatar Airways (QR 826, QR830, QR832, QR834, QR836, QR980), Singapore Airline (SQ976), Cathay Pacific (CX653), Lufthansa  (LH772), Austrian Airlines (OS25), Swiss Air (LX180), KLM (KL873, KL875, KL887, KL847, KL811, KL843, KL815, KL803) and Air France (AF253, AF168).

Just checked - and the prices are ...... HIGH, will WAIT until Sanity has returned and (hopefully) Quarantine might also be .... gone?

I found Singapore Airlines was the only flight out of Brisbane for $900 one-way. Another problem is SQ has a 19 hour stop over in Singapore, so a long time stuck at the airport.

Singapore airport has rooms for transit passengers - basic but bed, shower etc - good enough for your layover

While I had a Retirement Visa, One-Way tickets was my preference. But now, with my Retirement Visa expired - I would NOT be allowed to travel on a ONE WAY, so have to book a RETURN ticket - and they are very HIGh in price now. Looking at Skyscanner for February, the prices seem to be ok again - including the Non-stop flights. And hopefully by then, the Quarantine requirements would have also been lifted?
