Jomtien: Latest requirements for Non-O visa extension of stay based on retirement ?


Recommended Posts

For the 1st time I will extend my non-o mariage for a 50yo extension in Jomtien (it looks much easier when you dont have a kid with your wife).

 

I did some research on the forum, someone can confirm the "special requirements" for Jomtien:

1 - Draw manually a map of your location

2 - Print some photos of your house/condo. For a house what kind of photos do they want ?

 

And about health nothing special ? No health certificate done in a clinic, no covid test, no health insurance for non-o ?

 I always did my extentions based on my mariage.
Because I'm 50 yo now, I want to switch on extention based on > 50 yo. I've read on the forum than now in Jomtien, they also want some photos for this kind of extention.

I have done retirement extensions based on O visa at Jomtien for over a decade.

 

Never have needed a map or photos of my residence or anything medical.

 

I do always submit a copy of my phone bill as proof of my address.

 

 

Likewise for me.  The Pattaya City Expats Club has checklists available on their website under the Thai Immigration topic - hover cursor over the topic and select checklists from the drop down menu. They only apply to Chonburi (Pattaya) Immigration requirements and are based on the latest reports from their members and other expats. In my case, I use a copy of my lease as proof of residence.

I changed my 3 years ago...no extra requirements, just keep in mind, Jomtien will renew and change your extension to retirement from date of application and not from when your marriage extension ends...

I used to use photocopies of utility bills as my "proof of address", then found out I could just use a photocopy of my (Thai) driver's licence (front and back). 

From a post I made about renewing my Retirement Extension (on a Non-O visa) last year (May 2020):

Passport
TM.7 (completed, signed and phone number written in beside signature).
Passport Photo
Photocopies (all signed):
  Passport (Face Page, page with Visa Transfer stamps, Page with current Extension Stamp, Page with last Entry Stamp)
  Photocopy of last TM.6 Departure Card
  Photocopy of Drivers License (front and back) as proof of address
  Photocopy of Bank Book (page with name/account number and page with latest balance update)
Bank letter (I used the "money in bank" method).
STM.2 (Acknowledgement of Terms and Conditions for Permit of Temporary Stay) - the only copies I can find online are .pdfs that I can't fill out on the computer.
Plus the (locally produced) "The Acknowledgement of Penalties for a Visa Overstay" form.
1,900 baht fee

(If you use the "money in bank" method they will give you a photocopy of the regulations concerning the requirement to keep money in the bank for certain periods and a date when you are supposed to return with photocopies of your updated bank book to prove you've kept the money in the account long enough.)

No maps, health checks or insurance requirements. Keep in mind the "seasoning" periods if you are using the "money in bank" method to meet the financial requirement.

A far a I know they do not want 1 and 2 in your post for an extension based upon retirement.

No medical certificate is required or any kind of insurance.

Did my extension of stay based on retirement, a couple of day ago. in Chiang Mai.  GPS  map coordinate is needed.  With a agent, in and out in 3 min.  No questions or papers to sign, just photo.  I sill don't know if I am on a 65,000 monthly income or a 800,000 bank balance

Just thought that you might like to know that it might be advisable to pick up a couple of TM7 forms from Soi 7 Jomtien. I downloaded a couple from their website and they wouldn't accept them. They made me go and get two forms from the foyer and fill them in. Both sets of forms were identical except for the fonts and paper quality.

I did mine last June. Either a copy of your rental agreement, a copy of your drivers license, or a copy of any bill in your name worked for Jomtien Immigration (arguably the best in all of Thailand).

If I understand well, if my extension ends 28th ferbruary 2021, and if I do my extentions 5th february 2021 => my new extension will end 5th february 2022 (not 28th ferbruary 2022) ?

Only Drivers Licence and not bring a photocopy of your TM30 ? (that looks so easy 🙂 )

About the balance for all the past year:

1 - Your method: only photocopy your updated Bank Book. But if you wait for more that 3 months, they will update your book with only 2 lines: total debit / total credit

For sure if for instance, balance 1 year - total debit for 1 year > 800k then you are good. Do they compute that way ?

2 - Method "The Pattaya City Expats Club" (thank you @soisanuk https://pcec.club/CHECKLISTS-Extensions-of-Stay

Does it means that if you dont update your bank book every 3 months then you have to ask your bank to print a statment for 1 year ?

I think the confusion is about people who are doing the "monthly deposit" method and have to show 12 consecutive months of deposits of at least 65,000 per month.

I update my bankbook once a year, the day before I go to Immigration. Usually the only new entry will be deposit of the annual interest payment (less tax) and the new balance.
Never had a problem.

Keep in mind that this is using the Jomtien Immigration office and they do some things differently than other offices. 
Like how they decided (a long time ago in fact) that people on yearly visas/Extensions who travelled somewhere, even out of the country, didn't need to report their address to Immigration (within 24 hours of returning) so long as they were returning to the same address that was on record at Immigration.

While some other offices expected you to report in even if you went to a neighbouring province for just a day.

I use a form I downloaded and had no problem with it at Jomtien Immigration.  I do recall that a couple of years ago, they made a slight change in the form - I did find the updated form and it was the one I downloaded - but I don't recall now if it was from Immigration website or another location.

Yes.  The PCEC on their webpage for retiree requirements when using the 800k in the bank notes for renewal of extension  (https://pcec.club/Chonburi-Immigration):   

 

Quote

Note: If the Passbook has not been kept updated and contains "net" entries (a combination of deposits & withdrawals), then Bank certified statements for the preceding 12 months will be needed.
