Retirement visa

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

When you get a 1 year extension ( retirement), do you need to stay at least 6 months and one day into Thailand ?

Thanks for reply.

No. You can stay in or out of the country for as long as you want within the year. If you leave you need a re-entry permit to keep the extension alive for when you return.

You can get the reentry permit at same time as extension or at airport. If in thailand for 90 days continuous you need to report.

Not trying to be pedantic to Jack , but you get your Re-entry Permit ( Single or Multi) after you get your Extension done , as you need a signed photocopy of your new Retirement Extension stamp to 'apply' for the Permit.

That depends on which Immigration office you go to.

After moving from Phuket and having made 9 retirement extensions there with all the hassle, I now live in Sisaket.

When I made my retirement extension in october last year at the Immigration office in Sisaket town, the nice and helpful ladies in that office made retirement extension, 90 days report and re-entry permit all in one time and they even made all the photocopies for 20 baht, photos they took with the webcam to the PC. In and out of the office in less than 20 minutes.
