4-Year Professional Visas Get Green Light in Thai Visas, Residency, and Work Permits Posted December 30, 2017 On 12/25/2017 at 4:54 AM, genericptr said: I'm too poor to be in Thailand I guess. No one I know back in the US has 20k unless they're working hard at their job and not messing around in Thailand like I am. :) I love Thailand but if I had more money I would only be here 3-4 months out of the year (bad driving, pollution, noise affects life quality too much) and in which case just use tourist visas. Just my thoughts. I think any online fivvrr worker or other such bugman worth his salt won't give this 'professional' visa the time of day. Seriously you are going to spend so much money on a visa like that how will you even make ends meet trying to earn money online? Unless you are some international architect or top level consultant liking Thailand enough to partially relocate this is a milking scam. The Elite Visa is probably more their style.
