Ask Baan Smile   Retirement Visa   Answer

For Thai retirement visa extension you should file for an extension one month before your visa expires. You must always check with your local  immigration office for further information on when you may request for an extension. As long as you've been granted permission to remain, you may seek for an extension. Even if your application is complete, you should submit it a few days before the expiration date in case you need to supply extra documentation.

As with the Non-Immigrant O visa, you must complete a TM7 Extension of Stay form to achieve this. This time, you must establish that you have at least 800,000 Thai Baht in your Thai bank account (or in your country of residency if you apply in that country), 65,000 Thai Baht each month in your bank account, or a combination of the two that totals at least 800,000 Thai Baht.

"The team at Baan smile were so professional the customer service was excellent. I first called to get help with extending my tourist visa. Miss P was so honest on the phone she advised me if I wanted I could do extension myself and would only be 1,900 baht. I appreciated her honesty and advised her I prefer a company that has experience and would relieve my headache trying to figure on my own. Her team took over and completed all necessary paperwork and got all my information from me that was needed. They scheduled a day to meet at Immigration and I was met by Miss P and her assistant Sophia. They walked me through process and it was so simple. I am happy to have met the team at BAAN SMILE. I will be calling them for all my needs and services in Thailand."
