Thai media The Bangkok Insight reported that "big developers" were showing an interest in the Elite Card for residence scheme with 20 onboard. 

 

Of these four had confirmed they will join the scheme that will give 5 year residence (extendable up to 20 years) for those investing 10 million baht in condominiums. 

 

They are Saensiri, Nusasiri, Four Seasons and Raimon Land.

 

The media also said that interest among foreigners was increasing with Germans, Chinese and Hong Kong residents at the forefront. 

 

The scheme involves Elite Flexible One that offers five year residence for 500,000 baht extendable up to 20 years. Validity period of application is over the next two years from January 1st to december 31st 2022.

 

With the Elite Flexible Plus scheme the people who run the program will throw in a work permit too. 

 

The Bangkok Insight also reported interest in a real estate project in Koh Larn off Pattaya.

I assume this was determined by the number of likes they got on Facebook? Probably 2 Chinese, 1 Hongkonger and 1 German clicked "Like".

The Elite Card is a 550 million Baht in debt boondoggle.

Who cares? 

Pretty much all government stuff everywhere in the world is just that - debt.

 

 

Still a rather pointless sheme, if you invest 10 mio THB in a condo you can just get the 10 MIO THB Investment visa that is lifetime valid (has to be renewed every year tho), which for me would make it more attractive than an expiring elite sheme.

 

Still, totally not interested in these condo marketing shemes, let me buy land/house and let that be eligible for a LONGTERM visa then we might be talking...

Read just now that Canada accepted 15,000 immigrants in October which was 50% less than last year, but still 15 thousand who will need a place to stay, pay tax (if not income then at least sales tax) and spend money either from money saved or from the sponsors that support them.

you can't fix stupid, even when they have more money than sense. . 

The flexible elite (500k) that’s extendable and you get a work permit?

 

That’s actually a good deal.

You only get the work permit if you invest at least 1 million USD.

I wonder how that will work. WP's are normally attached to a particualar job. Unknowlingly, maybe the TAT intends to employ said foreigners to work full time as their spokespeople for 15K a month😁

Changed years ago, you only have to notify the gov that u changed jobs.

 

Still no clue how this would work in this case...

it completely baffles me why the Thai governement targets and favors well to do expats mostly from other Asian regions and some from farang country who want to invest and do business, over the sexpats and pensioners. According to some ppl belonging to these last focus groups, their pension euro and bargirl money is what keeps Thailand economically afloat.

Confused. lol.

But they don't, that's why all these offers are <deleted>.

 

Can just buy a passport in real countries including the US as an investor; Or the Spanish/PT/greek golden visa, or the malaysian m2h visa or the proper long term singapore visas - this is just bs marketing for condo developers tho.

 

Maybe interesting for people fleeing HK but many of them could get a proper british citizenship, no idea who is even the target market for these <deleted> campains, if i want an elite visa i just buy the 1 mio 20 year one, if i want a new condo i just buy it and apply for the investment visa, there's nothing interesting coming with this visa here.

 elite Card doesn't make much sense when when a retirement Visa costs only BT 1,900 and it is so easy to get. But there seems to be a number of posts with vested interest on this forum who are posting false information here claiming that the retirement Visa is very problematic.

They spend money, unlike the current tightwads. Every satang is prisoner with some of them.
