If male you can extend stay one year with proof of marriage, the wife, and meeting the financial requirements of 400k in your name bank account for two month or have proof of 40k per month income.

I assume you applied for a non-o visa at embassy or consulate that allowed a 90 entry to the country.

You can apply for a one year extension of stay based upon marriage during the last 30 days of the 90 days.

You will need 400k baht in a Thai bank in your name only for 2 months on the day you apply.

You can also apply for a 60 day extension to visit your wife to get more time to apply for the one year extension.

hi im confused , so basically i can get a 60 days  + 1 year extension ? 

so its only 2 mths , not 3 mths right ? as when  I come in i need to have 14 days ASQ before i come out ..

When you enter the country you will get stamped in for 90 days on your arrival stamp.

Then after quarantine you will need to put 400k baht into aThai bank so that you can apply for the one year extension when it has been in bank for 2 months. Or if your home country embassy will issue proof of 40k baht income.

If you need more time to prepare for the one year extension you can apply for a 60 day extension to visit your wife.

It is 2 months not 3 months. It has been 2 months for over a decade.

Perhaps confusion from before when retirement extensions required 3 months.

Does one need to prove that the 400K came from abroad?
I understand it does (800k) for the retirement visa.

Not for a one year extension of stay application. It is only required to apply for a non-o visa at immigration.

I think you misread my post.

The extension of stay based upon marriage requires 400k baht in the bank.

A extension for retirement requires 800k baht.

Three months, including the month while waiting for approval. Some offices may vary.

It is three months, if the immigration office demands that the money remains there during the month the application is under consideration - so another source of confusion. That is what my IO demanded, anyway. Two months before the application and one further month during the approval process. The OP would need to check what his particular office requires, so he would need to be prepared to tie up the money for three months and not two. Mine changed the rule one week before I applied.

It is still 2 months before the date of application and that is what was being the discussed.

Keeping it in the bank during the under consideration period is a different requirement and it is not required by all immigration offices.

Which is why I wrote, but you didn't include in quoting me, that he should check with his own particular office.

you sure as heck can't get a visa to visit someone else's wife which kind of infers that you're married. 🤨

Don't forget Ubonjoe - 2 months when you apply but then it is 4-5 weeks "under consideration" and when you revisit on the date on given on that stamp you need to show by photo of your bank-book that the 400k is still there as a minimum for that period too, so effectively by the time you get your stamp it has been 3 months plus. Got my extension on the 5th at CW where as usual I have to give an entire rain-forest in paperwork, most of which they get every year, and in some cases every 90 days as well!

That depends upon the office where you apply for the extension. Not all offices are asking to see the bank book when you return to get the extension stamp.

Ubonjoe - sorry - saw that others made the same point. Your point was 2 months on day of application, but Bangkok still want that final month or no stamp!

 

But while writing, it has been said that the one year extension is available only to males, husbands of Thai wives.; Is that correct or is it available to farang wives with Thai husbands too? Just curious is all!

Foreign women can apply for citizenship after being married to a Thai male for 1 year,  no need for extensions, no need to work. Their skin colour isn't relevant, all ethnic backgrounds welcome.

They do need to extension to stay in the country until  Thai nationality is applied for and approved.

No need for them to show money in the bank or proof of income for the extension. The husband can be asked to prove income at many offices and many want it be at least 15k baht a month.
