The money needs to be in an account in your name only. Go with your wife to the bank where she has an account. You should not have a problem opening an account.

For the change from a tourist visa to non-o you will need a TM 86 form.

After the money is in the bank for 2 months you would go back and use the TM 7 for the extension.

I think you will find that the "bahts in the bank" route can no longer be used by new applicants for a one-year extension of the non-immigrant O visa to support Thai national wife. The 40,000 baht monthly income now seems to be the only way. If, like me, your income comes from employment or investments outside Thailand, then you will need to obtain a certificate of income from your Embassy in Bangkok - at least this was my experience last November. Good luck and best wishes for your marriage.

Since 25 Nov. 2008 you can again use the money in the bank route. What did change is that the money now has to be the foreign husbands only, both for income and money in the bank.

You can apply anytime within the last 30 days of your permision to stay. Always a good idea to do early rather than late in case of any problems.

You can even do it on a Tourist Visa if need be, but it has to be done with at least 21 days left on your stay. Easier to do with the Non O Visa.

Just my luck! I applied for the one-year extension on 24 November and had gone to no end of trouble (and expense) in getting a certificate of income from my embassy. The real worry about all of this is how frequently important regulations change, and how difficult it is to get reliable information. In September last year before coming here again in November to join my wife, I confirmed with the Thai Embassy in New Zealand that the 'money-in-the bank' route still applied. I gave them full details of my situation so they could not have assumed that I had already been granted a one-year extension on that basis. Then, only because I have learned never to rely on what I am told by a Thai official, I read the posts on TV, and in October found that I could only use the monthly income route. After many hours attached to my PC, I eventually found that if the income came from outside Thailand, I needed to obtain a certificate of income from my embassy in Bangkok.

Moral of all this - stay tuned to Thai visa - and for heavens sake, don't assume that what applies today will be still OK tomorrow.
