Stricter requirements, new application forms for ED visa extensions


Recommended Posts

I don't think so. You will be fine. Sent from my GT-I9190 using Thaivisa Connect Thailand mobile app

I'm studying at walen pattaya (and i'm regular at thai classes) and i have a lot of tourist visas . So at ed visa extension in jomtien i would have to get some proof of income/bank balance or it won't be needed?

At this moment no. But in a short period of time you may need proof of income or money in the bank from outside Thailand.

Let's hope it would not come to that i need proof of income at ed visa extension when i go to jomtien. I don't work here or anything illegal but my money is staying on my thai girlfriend bank account so we use it together(and it's not a lot).So i can support myself by not working but of course it's a not exactly my bank account

Agakure, we have not tested it yet but it seems people with a lot of tourist visas may find it difficult to obtain an ED visa. Sent from my GT-I9190 using Thaivisa Connect Thailand mobile app

Wrong.You can't say that for everyone,don't generalize.I have a lot of tourist visas but i actually have never missed a thai school lesson on my ed visa,and i'm eager to learn thai language.

It would be better to have some sort of test based upon how much months/years did you learn thai.Those who have ed visa for several years but can't speak even a word,those are the real problem.

Hotrod, just in case you needed one in the future you might change your opinion. Requirements are reasonable for those who do not abuse the system. Rules for retirement visas might change, increasing age to 55, then so many critics that are just a little over 50 might all of a sudden praise this kind of visa for those learning Thai. Never say never. The same might happen if immigration required more money in the bank and tricks of not depositing your own money might not work any longer. The best is not to break a good system by abusing it.

Some people use it for work illegal.But MOST of the people use it to stay here on the long term without doing anything illegal.That's not a scam.

May be wrong but doesnt the price of Visas stay the same for Old Hands.?. Feel sure my Chum only had to show 200 in the Bank, then it went to 400,yet he only had to show a seasoned 200 for his Wed to Thai Visa because he had been here a long time. Am i Right. or not?. Ed Visas have allways been abused as far as us Old Hands generally see it, but as for Mac, i doubt hes part of it,the louts are giving him a hard time. Hence the Jobsworth Thais wake Up.

There's going to be a lot of people resorting to 'overstays'.

If the Tourist Visa runners can't get Ed visas, and there's hassle getting Tourist Visas in nearby countries without getting redstamps etc. Then I think many will jut think F it, keep 20k cash nearby and give up on the visa nonsense.

Trouble will start if they raise the max overstay fine from 20k to 50k.

They're scamming their selves if they're living here on less than 40k p/m and refusing or cannot work to add to it. rolleyes.gif

But in that case you'll do not much travel anymore. Almost on every bus ride your passport will be checked, and as well in border areas.

Of course you could be checked anywhere, but the above is where I get checked on a regular basis, for the rest never in over 10 years.
