Time Requirement, Post Extension, for 800K in Bank

Post by parrot » August 11, 2019, 1:12 pm

Looking for first-hand feedback from people who have extended under the ?new? 800k in the bank rules. How is the Udon office handling the alleged requirement to keep 800k in the bank after you extend? And for how long (if applicable)?
Please, I'm not interested in other immigration offices or heard-it-through-the-grapevine accounts

They never mentioned it at all. This was about a month ago for me.

Going this week for the first 90 day report after extension granted. Will report back after but still believe I/O when asked said only passport required. Have not heard or seen anyone posting that they had to show 800K in bank after 3 months.

Wish there was a 'like' button on U.M. instead of the "maybe' 'probably' 'I am never wrong' posts that sometimes appear.

this 800.000 baht 3 months after requirement is not the big question , big question is, are they implying the not touch 400.000 baht new rule ? i have done 12 years extension based on marriage, and changed it later to retirement when i became 50 ,(more easy ) now i will have to get back to stupid marriage extension based , as i do not want immigration start controlling what i can do with my own money , all about principles.... :(

So, you're saying that if immigration doesn't have a 3 month rule after a retirement extension but they do have a 3 month rule after a marriage extension, you'll revert back to a retirement extension?

To those who chimed in with their own recent personal experience, thanks for the feedback.
