Following up on the OPs question: I am currently using an extension based on marriage. And consider moving to an extension based on retirement, in order to simplify the process.
I understand the 800/400/800 THB rule. But I am concerned that I may need to show up at Immigration office several times a year, so they can check my compliance.
Does anybody know how Udon Thani immigration handles this?
I would guess the only way they will handle it is when you apply for your next extension you have to give a copy of your bankbook.
They will then go back through it and check your balance from 3 months after the extension was granted.
You have to give a statement for 3 months prior for your extension from your bank or they may also then ask for a statement for 3 months after your extension was granted.
It is not practical to check when you do your 90 day report as you can do it online.
Just to further clarify my statement.
When my wife was refused her extension (she is not Thai and attached to my Retirement Visa).
I was handed back all my paperwork and advised to see an Agent.
When I handed over the paperwork to the agent and checked it I noticed a copy of all my bankbook pages for the year.
I did not supply these so the Immigration office must have made the copies.
That is probably how they will check the money in your account.
If you do not comply with the rules they will probably tell you go see an Agent and pay the money.
