In addition, this is for our IO

 

- They want that the KR2 is a max of 1 day old

- Bank letter has to be done on the same day as going to Immigration

- Copy Bank Book, first page and last page

- They also wants to see (sometimes that is) the original Marriage Certificate, so best is if you take it with you just in case.

I think you have everything covered, however, these are the (official) requirements for Samui Immigration.

I'm aware you will be using Chang Wattana and not Samui, but it may be worth looking through to check you have everything you need.

(For Samui everything needs to be in duplicate).

@walailak be aware that if you overlook anything there is photocopy stall etc at CW on lower level where the banks are.

 

Very useful if you update and get bank letter on lower level as can get copy of last passbook updated page made and any others you need - on my last visit the shops were at North-West end so a bit away from most banks/immigration.  

 

Edit:  Have been using Google maps for last 3 or 4 years at Bangkok Immigration for home location.

Think I have been lucky with Kasikorn. When I attend bank I give clerk 100baht for bank letter and 100for deposit into account to show 'activity'.

I ask the lady if possible to photocopy last transaction page to show this deposit. They do that free (unless recent change).

Submitted my extension 2 weeks ago, still took 3 hours to wait and submit.

 

Documents submiited same as in the previous 5 years.

 

The immigration officer kindly did an update of the 90 day report and saved me a special trip to MTT.

 

Was informed that on return after the 30 day under consideration must bring a photopcopy and original updated book bank showing the 400000 baht in the bank account.

That is two ( 2 ) copies of everything, including the TM7. 

 

I have to say that sometimes I am very tempted to get something wrong, or deliberately forget a document, just so they can tell me what is missing, not in a way that necessitates me returning another day, but something I can pull out of my folder.

NOT with Krungsri, no photocopy possible, they even have a written sign "no copy" lol.

Even though I got money in the account, 4 credit cards (1 platinum) with them, wife got her own account with millions in it, they still refuse to do it, oh well TIT.

    After dealing with the Thai immigration for 5 years now you would think you would have it together enough to know and remember what documents you need to accomplish getting your yearly visa renewal. Make and keep extra copy's of every document you have given to immigration for referance for your following year visa renewal. Then you might will have more confidence that you are going to be prepared for your yearly visa renewal.

Ha that is true and you would think that until you visited my IO office on a yearly basis! Something always seems to change what they want almost if the wind is blowing north to south on the day you go but next year the wind is blowing south to north look out!!

That is true with the new Sukhothai immigration office never had much trouble when we had to go the Maesot immigration office before.

After only few years going to the new Sukhothai immigration office there is always something that want different they are pain in the <deleted> but thankfully only once a year.

I like the sign in there office "We are here to help".????

 

It should read, " We will find something wrong with your application to stay no matter what lengths you have gone to make it be approved by us first ".

It can vary year by year. 

 

I use the Kamphaeng Phet office and they need 2 copies of everything. 1 for them and 1 for region 5 (their head office) in Chiang Mai.

 

Last year some of my photocopies were in colour. This year only originals are coloured, copies MUST be in black and white.

 

I made a small spread sheet of Wise transfers to BBK bank, with dates, amounts and forex rates with monthly totals, nice and neat and easy to read. She didn't want that but ploughed through my KBank yearly statement (7 highlighted pages) and added them up on the calculator.

 

Last year 6 photos of us around the house. This year 8 and then she threw 2 away.

 

Never assume that this year will be the same as last year.

 

Use last years as a guide.

 

The lady IO told my wife at the next extension bring all the stuff in about a month early and she will check it over for missing or wrong bits.

 

She also said do not sign anything until she has stamped and then sign in the stamp box.

 

TBF she did extend ny extension by an extra month and last year she gave me 2 months extra.

Believe it is one copy in Bangkok - although I use retirement these days.

It depends on the office.

 

If it is a regional office only 1 copy, if it only a district office 2 copies are needed.

 

There must be warehouses all over Thailand stuffed with extensions from decades ago.

The thread is about CW Bangkok.

OK whatever you say,

Being confidet or not it's still an unexpected experience each time. 

 

Since you are the master,

 why don't they give us a permanent extension let's say valid for 5years like Thais would get in my country ??????????????????

Go figure

Only one copy required at CW. 

 

I renewed my marriage extension of stay a few weeks ago at CW.  Although I went with two copies I only handed the immigration officer one copy "and I specifically asked the immigration officer how many copies are now required since I had heard two copies may be required--the immigration officer's answer was only one copy is now required. 

 

I asked the question since last year when I switched from a retirement to marriage extension of stay I had heard two copies were required for a marriage extension (for a retirement extension I has always just provided one copy) so I went with two copies in hand.   The immigration seemed to only really need one copy but when I showed I had two copies the officer used about half of other copy and gave me the rest back. Maybe the officer was preparing a mini-package for some purpose since I was switching from retirement to marriage extension...don't know. 

 

But as mentioned earlier I do know a few weeks ago I only submitted one copy for my marriage extension renewal and when asking the immigration how many copies are required the answer was one.
