Visa on arrival


Recommended Posts

I am a UK national I want to stay in Thailand for about 4months and whilst there,apply for a ‘Retirement “ visa. I believe this is an O visa with extension of stay for 12 months?

I am 71 years old . And already have the 800K baht in a bank in Thailand.

I thought I could enter ‘Visa exempt” and then convert to an O visa,but reading the thai gov website it states that visa exempt entry cannot be extended except in exceptional circumstances,like illness, also the UK citizens do not appear to be eligible?.

I am aware that I could apply for a tourist visa but really wanted to avoid the insurance aspect.

I would be grateful for advice.  My thanks in advance.

My grateful thanks for the reply’s. I did indeed make a mistake….I read the “advice” from TVS global, not the thai embassy itself. 
One further question if I may….. if I come in “visa exempt” for less than 30 days….do I need to buy insurance for this period? 
my thanks for your advice and assistance.

Yes

The airline can ask to see ticket out of the country with 30 days. It can be a one way ticket to anywhere.
