Greetings Thai visa members

 

In December 2019, I posted a similar request. Here I am with a new request on the same topic

 

I have a Non O - A visa with an expiry date of 28th December 2020. I have the required health insurance as mandated by Thai Immigration. I have one year of income stats coming from USA to a Thai bank. More than the required 65,000 baht per month. These are International wire transfers

 

My queries are:

 

1. Are there any advantages from changing O - A to a Non Imm. O visa. As stated earlier, I already have the health insurance.

 

2. If you suggest that I stay with the O - A visa, what are the forms required to perform this..Could I download the forms on line. Without going to the Chiang Mai Immigration to pick up the forms

 

3. When can I do this..my expiry date is 28 December 2020

 

I hope that the aforementioned is clearly stated by me.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Respectfully

 

James

It appears he hasn't has an extension at all yet, it is the permission to stay that expires 28/12.  

its your extension that expires on 28th December not your visa that expired on June 2020, its the terminology that can lead to confusion your extension is based on a Non imm 'O''A' visa, that can

Yearly O retirement visa has no insurance requirements. I paid 1900 baht and think that agents are for dummies.

1.  If you have Health Insurance and can renew the policy in the future then I do not see an advantage to change to an Non O(others will disagree).

 

2.  TM -7 and probably an updated TM-30.  Proof of International Transfers for the 65,000 or Baht coming into the country. Just use the “Google” to find the forms.

 

3.  For CNX I have extended up to 45 days before my expiration date(don’t know if this is still true or not).

what expires on the 28th December. the actual visa you obtained in another country, or the permission to stay stamp you got at a border on your last entry, or is it an extension you got at local immigration, that you are calling a 'O' 'A' visa

The permission to stay in Thailand was extended to 28 December. 

 

I got the O A visa in another country in June 2019. Good until June 2020.  I left Thailand in December 2019. I re-entered Thailand in December 2019. At the Bangkok suvarnabhumi, the visa was extended to December 28 2020

 

So now my visa expiration is  28 December 2020. That is the date that I am dealing with. Thanks

your extension is based on a Non imm 'O''A' visa, that can not be changed to a non imm 'O' visa without leaving the country and re-entering

I have an O with a 12 month extension expiring in Feb 2021.

I’m stuck in Australia.

The Embassy here tells me and others that the 0 is no longer accepted for entry...

And now we retirees have to apply for an O-A to get back.

Just FYI..

I am literally in the exact same place you are as far as time of visa and all that for my OA visa, I used an agent. Cost was 13,000bht for extension, 3,000bht for ins and 1,000 for single entry total was 17,000hbht..... I went to immigration to have pic taken for like 2 minutes. 

 

This was my first extension and using an agent was so stress free.

This is about O-As not Os.   

For people in Thailand who hold an O-A entry permit or extension, obtained before the insurance requirement was introduced, it's not possible to change to an O as that requires travel out of the country and back.

For some, an agent is the only answer as the fee allows you to obtain the unobtainable as if by magic.
