  1. I assume you are not on any of the facebook help forums. It is acceptable for the flight to upload a screenshot of your intended booking. Start a booking process and take it as far as you can without paying, screenshot that and upload to the visa site. ensure it shows flight number. For accomodation screenshot your intended ASQ booking or as UJ suggested your wifes address.

  2. Looks like you are just making excuses. Many ways for you get be able to get your money to your partner without relying on the bank book. More to the point, why are you also making excuses for not coming to Thailand. It is relatively easy to come to Thailand even on a Tourist visa. Granted its a bit expensive with the quarantine and insurance. I have been in and out twice now in the past 18 months. It depends what your priorities are and seeing your partner is obviously not one of them.

    Thank you Ubonjoe, If I change my visa base on retirement for one base on Marriage, will it be better?  I am 70, the one year Insurance will cost $700...


    Thank you

    As UJ has said. Just use family ie Spouse as the reason to get your COE. I am on an extension of stay based on retirement and use the spouse option to get my COE. No 40k/400k insurance required only the $100k Covid insurance.

    OP, you may might keep an eye on the situation in reverse.

    Labor Party for example urging borders with Thailand to be closed. 

    Reported in Taiger and other news sources.

    That report was about 4 weeks ago. Also it was not saying borders should be closed, just suggesting Thailand should be added to the UK Red list. Since then there has been a further UK review and Thailand stayed Amber.

    Any one of the existing ones that will suit: retirement, study, elite, work, monkhood, taking care of a family member, .. 

    They are not visa's. Retirement and family member are extensions of stay, not Visa's. Not sure about the others, as far as I know you only get a visa outside Thailand.

    No vaccine is required but then you would have to enter quarantine. When they allow travel to the UK from Amber list countries then you would require to be fully vaccinated to avoid quarantine. The Chinese vaccine is excluded for entry in to the EU and I cannot find any info anywhere that it is OK for entry in to the UK

    Its only a proposal by the media at this stage. Nothing been announced

    last application was denied because of another missing form...


    my understanding is that the application must be in the same place you reside, and i want to reside in bangkok

    Dont know what your issue is. 90 day Non O based on Retirement from your own country. 40k outpatient and 400k inpatient plus $100k Covid insurance is whats required. Forget any past visas they are long gone. You can convert to an extension of stay in Thailand meeting the financial requitements if you wish

    The $100,000 covid 19 insurance only needs to be valid for the length of stay you get when you enter the country.

    Look here for the covid 19 insurance. https://www.tipinsure.com/CovidRegional/product_detail

    You wife does not have to have the covid 19 insurance.

    You could get a single entry non-o visa based upon marriage to a Thai that will allow one 90 day entry.

    How long do you plan on staying here?


    I think that now Thais cannot stay in free state quarantine the requirement for Thais to have $100k Covid is changing as well. I am not 100% sure but I have heard rumours and this infographic from the RTE London re the Phuket Sandbox, seems to confirm that Thais need insurance as well.

    Sounds like your standards are as grubby as the bars you frequent. 

    You are just so jealous that you cant come here. By the way pal the bars have been closed for 2 months now. Those grubby little bars you mention are desperate to open to survive. I just enjoy sitting on the veranda a few times a week enjoying the peace and quiet of our gated secure village, with my wife. See you got that wrong pal. You must be great company, I have looked back on many of your posts and they are all angry and judgemental, I hope you dont have a heart condition. Calm down man.

    Can you use Line to call a foreign landline?

    Download Vyke




    You put credit on and away you go. I put $2.5 (they charge in $) and it lasts forever. When you call the UK your Thailand number shows up but you are calling via VYKE. You can also get an extra telephone number even a UK number if you wish. This is great if you want to make people think you are calling from the UK

    Nobody here to go to the bars anyway.

    Maybe a few of the upscale bars will be ok but not these grubby little bars full of bar girls begging for drinks.

    Stay in the fields growing rice girls, your prince charmings have gone.

    Sounds like your lust for life and your libido has gone as well
