Thai Medical Insurance for Immigration

Post by Bread Man » January 2, 2019, 3:03 pm

Does anyone know if the Immigration Office in Udon Thani will require compulsory Medical Insurance when renewing their yearly visa? I am a Diabetic and cannot find cover here in Thailand. I have lived here for 16 years and have regular check ups at the hospital. My home country offers Insurance at sky high prices but I would have to live there to qualify for this. Talk about a Bummer!
Thanks in advance....

Bread Man, this is only a tentative government proposal and is far from being formerly authorized. Besides that, the interpretation thus far is that the medical insurance will only be a requirement for those requesting a new Non 0-A visa from outside the country, and it hasn't specifically mentioned those who are already in Thailand and on an annual extension of stay. You should be okay!

there is a new Police order due very very soon about income proof, there may be something else as well, if there is nothing in it about insurance (nobody has suggested there will be) then you are safe
