Re: 800k, When Does Three Month Period Start?

So, an extension is due on 1 Nov, but you renew 30 days prior on 2 Oct. The IO tells you to keep 800k in your account for 3 months. Does the 3 month period start on 1 Nov or on 2 Oct? The requirement is 3 months from issue of extension , as far as i'm aware the extension date never changes (except ...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

[background=] If I remember what I read a while back the account, be it 400k or 800k, can not be a joint account. If this is correct and the owner dies how does the Thai spouse get access to the funds? She goes to the bank with death certificate. Or you could simply keep simply keep the account in j...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

I feel the same way about them freezing 400,000; but there's not much anyone can do other than do what you plan to do: go back to the marriage extension requirements. As you correctly pointed out, it's probably going to create more work for the IOs. Do you know if you can withdraw any of the 400,00...
