Who? Show us on this forum one person who's bragging about lying to their Embassy.kubotatim wrote: And have they ever bothered, so many brag about it??????? Immigration now want proof, good on them.
I'm not accusing anyone of lying (as you seem to be) But it certainly is possible. A UK citizen could create a false document as evidence of income and have no fear of any legal action (as far as I'm aware of). They state on the website that they do not verify your income:kubotatim wrote:We cannot falsify in UK consulate as we have to prove our income, and so should everyone else, UK do not come to Udon, we have to go to Bangkok, you lot can lie as much as you want and immigration has finally cottoned on, good in my opinion we all know the rules.
The tone of your post sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder or are suffering from "green eye" because the reality is the US process to get a income verification letter is easier, cheaper and the US Embassy provides better service to its citizens. I know of no American that would get an affidavit under false pretenses as the threat of committing perjury carries penalties that are sever.· Completed form as below.

From the other thread on this subject:
The problem I see with this new requirement of the Nong Khai office is they are not just verifying your income, they are requiring you have that money in Thailand and you then cannot leave that money in your home country bank, drawing out funds as required.I was asked to sign 2 separate papers stating that for my next extension I will need to provide evidence that at least 65,000 baht of my 'pension' was deposited each month in the Thai bank system.

With the income letter, you are just verifying that you make over 800K per year. With their new requirement they are asking for a Thai bankbook or bank statement so you have to actually have that 800K in a thai bank. Not everyone wants to do that or needs to spend that much every year. Now you will have no choice.
