Retirement Extension Renewal.


Recommended Posts

Today I went and done my renewal for my retirement visa as it was due early next month and I had some free time.

First up...headed to the Bank for letter to confirm funds in Bank. This took about an 1 hr at bank due to it being busy. Total cost here 200baht for all what was needed.

Second up to a photo copy shop to get what I needed. ...

Photo copy of front and second page of page of yellow book.

Photo copy of pages used in passport along with a copy of departure card that is put in passport on arrival.

Photo copy of bank book

I signed all the pages here before heading off to Immigration.

I already had a photo from last year so I did not need a new one that they stick on the application form.

Total cost here...41baht.

By now it was near Mid day so had lunch and then headed to Immigration getting there at 1:15pm

3rd up.....Arrived at 1:15pm and filled in some paperwork at front desk. Put this with all the other paperwork I had and along with passport handed it to Immigration Officer. He checked it.... said wait over there and you will be called. At 1:50pm called to another desk...photo taken for their computer...... over to the next desk......paid the princely sum of 1900baht...told my next report was 24 May 22 and out the door I went just before 2pm. All up total time at Immigration was approx 45 minutes along with good efficient service by the staff there. 

Total cost was 2141 baht and I am right to go for another year.

cheers

Add on for those interested...nothing was asked for of vaccination status or Insurance.

May i ask which Immigration office you use Roo  ???

I had a similar experience a couple of months ago at the Chaiyaphum Immigration, they were most obliging.

Renewed my Retirement visa and registered my new address, plus they done my 90 day, even though it was not due for another 3 weeks, but as the chap said 'it will save me a 100klm trip in two/three weeks time, so may as well do it now'.

The one I use now is Roiet. 

Usually when I do my report it usually takes 15 minutes at most.

Immigration get a lot of negatives but my experience with them have overall been good.

Ever since being here...if I have a question on anything....I go to the Immigration Office and ask them directly and each time they are happy to help out. 

cheers

For me (I use the Maptaphut office) it's a two day process, though it doesn't have to be.  Day one I a make a transfer so there's a same day listing in the book then go to a mall that has a branch of my bank for the letter.  Kasikornbank charges 100Baht for that.  Then grab  lunch in the mall and do some shopping.

That evening scan any new pages from the bank book, print those.  Update my forms from last year to my new age and the date and print those, along with the scans of my passport pages.  Sign all copies.

The next day head to immigration, it seldom takes as much as a half hour and we're out with another year stamp.  Then lunch Old Germany restaurant near there.

I've had good luck with the online 90 day reports, so I just do that.
