Nothing new here....just more confusion that lends itself to a multitude of interpretations and still gives each office the latitude to interpret it the way that best suits them and not us!

Lots of wittering but
no confusion from immigration. Clarity on requirements.

For income only
The 4 countries have to have transfers in to a Thai bank from abroad every month to a minimum average of over 40,000 or over 65,000 per month for 1 year (probable allowance for a partial year proof in 2019). The banks are working on a document for immigration.

No change on money in the bank 400k or 800k
No change for citizens whose embassies issue documents.

This above is a Rough translation of the Thai under.

the extension rules are a bit more important, as without that quite a few people would have to quit thailand :roll:

The requirements for Marriage Extension/Retirement haven't changed as far as I can see - ie 400/800k.

Are there additional funds now needed to be deposited monthly?
Is this correct?


As I can't grasp why there is over 800 posts on tvf about this.... seems alot of droning on there.

For a lump sum deposit, correct no change

No additional money is needed if you have the lump sum

Moderate to total inability to understand what has changed and doomsayers?

As previously said...
The new rules recently published (depositing 40/65000 monthly into your Thai account) are to facilitate those who used the income/method via the Embassy Letter. Some Embassies did away with this letter so Imm has come up with an alternative to this method. This will also assist if you used or wish to use the combo method (Income + Cash in Bank)
As far as anyone knows the cash in bank (400/800,000) remains the same.

A professional translation of the above Thai documents

The word pension is used, my speculation is that the word pension in Thai may have a different meaning than the English word and so may include other sources of income.

"Income Method" only ... as shown in the heading.

I think sometimewoodworker has tried in vain to communicate this over and over again -- as have others. The method of using the Thai bank account amounts of 400,000 and 800,000 is still in force -- unless they change/eliminate it at some point (which I don't see happening).
US private charity and the US government do more good for people everywhere in the world -- every year -- than any other country. God Bless America.
