if your in chang mai immigration knows your birthday and if it falls on the day of a visa extension you can expect an announcement over the loudspeaker. The ladies will do the rest with singing happy birthday and a cake.   https://www.sanook.com/news/7665426/

Hi roger, i thought the order is from 1st march effective - were not there yet :rclxs0

Hello Thaiga. Re. the 2 months before filing, changing to 3 months on subsequent filings - that certainly wasn't in that last Police Order you posted and it's suggested elsewhere that the 'thailandlife' report was written before the last PO. Time will tell I guess  :)

So its B800K 2 months before 'extension' and 3 months after, then B400K for 7 months then back to B800K for 2 months before next 'extension'. Or is it ?   ;)

Johnnie F - 'Income Letters' will still be provided by Norway too in addition to Germany and Austria.

This one will run and run  :(   Thanks for all the help . . .

The letter from the bank has always been accepted the following day by me. according to some it has a 3 day life or did have. some good points in the link, of course it could change as we know

thethailandlife.com/the-thailand-retirement-visa-guide

money must be in the bank for at least 2 months before your visa application. For consecutive visas (so the second and third year) the money has to be in the bank 3 months before you apply for the visa

you can renew your visa up to 45 days before it expires

I got my non Imm "O" changed to a non Imm "O-A" on the 15th of last month.

That's interesting, KC! But couldn't it be, that you got a 1-year extension to your "Non-O"? To my knowledge the "Non-O-A" gets issued only by the Thai embassies and very few consulates general abroad and is basically a "Non-O" with an already approved 1 year period of stay instead of the 90 days of a "Non-O", when entering Thailand. Also you don't need a re-entry permit when leaving and re-entering Thailand within this visa's 1 year validity, as it is always for multiple entries; and at each entry you'll get a 1 year stay permit again, so you can stay here for almost two years (with one re-entry like a border run), before you need to extend it at the Immigration Office like the "Non-O". Before issuing that Non-O-A" the Thai embassy in your home country will also check that you have the funds to stay in Thailand for 1 year, but they don't ask for a certification by your country's embassy or your bank in Thailand; they'll be happy with the original documents about your pension.

So for some it might be better now visiting their home country once every 2 years and making a border run before that 1 year visa validity of the "Non-Immigrant O-A" has run out than going through the hassle with their embassies in Thailand or Thai banks and Immigration Office.

I had all the paper work that the officer had said I needed, the bank book was useless (Kasikorn Bank) as it skips some transactions so we got a statement instead (I did take my bank books  with me though), The only thing the officer complained about was the statement was dated the previous day, She wanted it dated the same day. I don't think the bank will change that. (We went to the bank in the mall as soon as it opened got the letter & statement then straight to Imm Korat).

To my knowledge they always ask for (copies of every page of) the bankbook and the statement by the bank. They check that the balances match etc. Therefore not only the bank statement needs to be very recent, also the bank book has to be updated recently and match the balance given on the statement. If they're not matching and not at least one of them is of a very recent date, they might have doubts.

I think that Officer was being difficult as IME ImmiG usually accept the document if it is dated the previous day. However I usually try to get to the Bank at opening time for the Statement and then direct to ImmiG.

Most banks update the book in summary these days so a statement copy is needed. For B65K pm qualifiers, that'll be a statement covering 12 months I suppose. Fun and games  :spin

Talking about having the money in the bank.
I got my non Imm "O" changed to a non Imm "O-A" on the 15th of last month.

Does any one know if other banks do this or would be able to have a statement dated the same day?
I am thinking of switching banks if I can find one that is able to comply with Imm' wishes.

We had another Snake visitor yesterday afternoon in the garden ( about 3pm - thought they would be sleeping! )
 
I touched it's tail end, it got a shock, and raced up through the bushes......
 
It was approx 2.0 metres long...

No, TT, for my computer, Stereo etc. I use a UPS Power Inverter and an 80 Ah pickup battery, already as preparation for a planned solar power system. Works a 1,000% better than those UPS they sell for computers. The voltage is kept steady for all appliances in the house by the step-up transformer and the AVR already. But blackouts are also something we suffer from.

Hi Johnnie, that transformer is pretty good for high power items, but maybe consider a UPS for more delicate items like computers:- This one has input range from 140-300 V and gives good stable output. I hope you have KF running on one of these!
