Hi Thaiga,
So a copy of the UK Bank Statement, showing the arrival of a pension for the last 3 months, can be used instead of a deposit of Baht 800,000 in Thailand or an income in Thailand of 65,000 baht monthly. Do I understand you correctly ? Thanks.

Likely they give you the 3 month only without proof of a pension of 65k. For the whole year they probably want to see it

Perhaps this is a no brainer, but I must ask. 

When requiring  financials for a Thai visa obtained in the US, the consulate web site always discusses bank statements as a source document. 

Would they accept a brokerage account statement?

I've checked with several of my associates with immigration, here in Korat, Khon Kaen, and Bangkok.  All of them told me that the rules have NOT changed.  For a Non-O Thai wife visa it's still 400,000 baht in a bank account or 40,000 Baht a month income.  I'm not sure why that embassy in the UK is posting that info, because according to immigration here in Thailand, it is not correct.  the 800,000 / 65,00 baht mo only applies to retirement visas.  Perhaps they are making up their own rules.

The headings refer only to O visas but the document requirements suggest that the rules apply to Thai wife O visas.

Perhaps they made a mistake and quoted the retirement visa financial requirements. I can't see any reason why the amounts should be greater than they are here. In any event, they way around this is to get a standard O visa and change it here to a Thai wife O visa.

The announcement seems to have come only from the Hull Consulate. Birmingham, as another example, also requires a marriage certificate for a straight O visa:

Perhaps the Thai government no longer issues straight Os, only Thai wife Os.

An alien must apply for a non-immigrant visa “code O” at a Thai Embassy or Consulate abroad before entering the Kingdom.
