Post by Mudguard » November 9, 2017, 1:23 pm

I RECEIVED IT AFTER 6 DAYS......

TALK ABOUT EASY WHEN COMPARING TO THE RIDICULOUS CONDITIONS IMPOSED BY THAI IMM IN THAILAND...

Are you sure that you got an OA visa, as they last a year so I am puzzled as to why you are getting letters from your embassy confirming your income status..

The information required by Canberra for an OA visa is greater than that required by internal Thai Immigration for a 1 year extension of stay.
Internally Thai Immigration require little apart from income confirmation/money in the bank.
Canberra require that plus an Australian criminal record check, plus a certificate of Health from Australia..

My retirement visa takes less than 1 hour at Udon immigration, 1,900 baht, so so easy, hats off to the staff there, a job well done in my book compared to years earlier.

Udon Immigration accepts the embassy affidavit/proof of income letter on face value without the need for it to be 'notarized' by the MFA in Bangkok?
