Keep money for 3 months after extension


Recommended Posts

 

For retirement extension, there is this requirement

 

,  ฿800,000 in a Thai bank account for 60 days+ before applying for the extension. And ฿800,000 remaining for 3 months after the extension, and ฿400,000 thereafter. 

 

For example

16 December 2021 is expiry date of visa

2 Nov 2021 is date of application and approval (45 days earlier than expiry date).

 

Is it counted from date of approval or date of expiry? Is the date of approval counted as day 1 or day 0?

 

What is the earliest date which I can withdraw money to below 800k baht but above 400k?

 

Anybody know for sure?

Even if you apply 45 or 30 days early, the expiry date of the extension is the same as it originally was? It was in my case.

Your date of extension due remains the same.

The extension is dated from end of your current extension.

The 3 month money thing is unrelated..

Very recent at Pathum Thani office you have to report:

800K 3 months after application date.

400K 6 months after application date.

Application and approval date should be the same, not to be confused with expiry date of extension.

 

Different offices might have different results.

Isn't 'the 3 month money thing' from the day your extension begins?

It's from the day you apply for your extension.

I think some places ask you to return the next day to pick up pp.

In any event your 3 months basically starts from the day you attend immigration to apply for your extension.

Here is my most recent extension.

I attended on Nov 2.

The 3 month money count starts from then.

@KannikaP confused?

You need to maintain the 800k in the bank from the date you obtain your extension.

In my example above, I obtained obtained extension Nov 2.

I need to maintain 800k in bank until Feb 2.

After that I need to maintain minimum level of 400k.

Back up to 800k two months before my next application for extension. 

The 8 Nov date (my permission of stay) has nothing to do with the money in bank dates/requirements.

You have the same application date as me!

 

90 days from Nov 2 is until Jan 31 2022.

 

So I presume that we can drop below 800 k starting from Feb 1 and not Feb 3 like what you mentioned.

The rules state 3 months not 90 days. Three months is February 2nd. That means you can reduce the funds to at least 400k baht on February 3rd.

Really? I always thought 3 months in Thai terminology means 90 days.

I am not confused about the amounts of money needed to be deposited/withdrawn, I seem to remember reading that even if you re-new your extension early, it still applies from the day your previous one expired. hence that's when the three months starts.

You thought wrong. A month is a month. They use months since it easier to count.

Nup.

3 months from date you apply for extension.

An example is Jomtien wanting you to return 90 days after day of application to show bank account.

Stupid requirement but just demonstrates the 3 month gig.

You can have a ATM card for your account if you want to.

Then why do some immig offices require people to return 90 days and not 3 months after application to show the bank balance?

Don't stress about it.

Not important.

Attached is couple of my random 90 days reports.

It's always the 28th.

Of course 90 day multiples will not land on same 28th date.

Same as the 3 month thing being referred to as 90 days by Jomtien.

It's simple. 

Leave money on bank for 3 months minimum post extension approval and do 90 day report according to the due date provided.

I don't know. Maybe they like counting days.

Please Ubon, clarify whether the 800k has to be in the bank for 3 months after application, which could be up to 45 days early,  or the date the extension begins, thanks,

Even if the rule is the application date, I am keeping money in at least until 3 months after the extension date to avoid an unpleasant surprise.

It is 3 months after the day you apply for the extension.

Form the immigration order. It says after the day the permission is granted that would be date of application,

Thanks never had issues before with Maesot,  since Sukhothai has had there own office they keep changing things and move goal posts. 

Just wanted to know it's OK an ordinary atm bank a/c not the fix account a/c in my name is not something he can lay the law down on as not acceptable.

Do not count in days for the 3 months keeping the money ....as 3 months can differ in days .of 90 or more ...dont give them ( I.O.) a gap to refuse your next ext......
