Looks good, might be an alternative to a retirement VISA/extension.

Stay 180 days, extend once (assuming 1,900bht), border hop, rinse and repeat.

Averaging 3,900bht/year.

Around the same cost as a retirement extension with multi re-entry, but 300kbht less in the bank required.

on other threads on this subject i thought it said the extension was also 10,000thb see @humbug at 7.41pm on Tuesday here

It's same old dog and pony. The difference here is age dropped to 20 along with 10k per year renewal.

 

They'll need to be doing something $ productive or creative I expect.

 

I'll bet they will ask for proof of income - more to see wtf the person is engaged in. 500k ok first year perhaps.

 

Will be interesting to see these new arrivals whinging about opening bank accounts. This will be a huge problem for the program.

 

Most people in social media are scraping by, living out of a bag or parents basement. Kids don't have this dosh.

 

As someone mentioned - it's one and done (I'd read). I'd also venture stringing this new visa + education visa may raise eyebrows.

 

Again, it's Thailand having cake and eating it too.

 

I'd be happy if Thailand rid itself of the tiktokers. Really lightweight bs, often clueless and sometimes misinformation is misleading and even dangerous. It is though free *soft power* or at least upbeat promotion.

so more than a re extension using an agent in Pattaya (which  u  dont need show Baht in Bank) 
guess its good for under 50 year olds

 

Doubt

 

If all you are doing is sitting around Pattaya I doubt you'll be renewed. Definitely need to be paying for a school as well, online business, social media platforms.

 

Seems like what's being missed is the person needs to be actively engaged in something. A few questions suss that out quickly.

I think you've misunderstood.

 

It's a multi-entry visa. This means that you get 180 days each time you enter the country whilst the visa remains valid.

 

i think you're correct. It makes no sense to have the right to extend once in 5 years.

I imagine this visa will be very popular amongst the unmarried under 50s. I wonder the price of the agent-assisted fee for those without the financial proof.

 

Or, maybe like with the METV they will allow you to self-declare.

 

I wonder if they'll be any silly restrictions on having to apply in your country of residence. That would be pretty dumb for a visa designed to entice digital nomads, but TIT, right?

It's a multiple entry visa. What do you propose would happen on the second entry?

Example, you entered Thailand 1st Jan on the DTV, permitted to stay until 30th June.

Depart March, re-enter April, permitted to stay until 30th June.

Same as an extension of stay with re-entry permit.

 

It clearly states you can only stay 180 days within a year, with the option of using that one time 180 day extension.

No, extensions are permits, not visas and applied for at Thai Immigration.

The DTV will be applied for at Thai Embassies/Consulates and Somchai can't help you with that.

It says you can extend your stay once for 180 days. Your stay usually starts when you enter the country.

 

Please feel free to point out anywhere where it "clearly states" that you can only stay for 180 days within a year

 

If you can't do that, then let's just wait and see, rather than waste any more time of the good readers of this thread by arguing over interpretations.
