5 YEAR MULTIPLE ENTRY VISA - "PE VISA" - Is it real or just more "vaporware"?

 
Hi ForumMates! 

Just got this ThaiVisa Newsletter with a promo about the "Thailand Elite Card."  It doesn't apply to me, so I don't care one way or the other personally.  It might, however, be important to others . . . except that I seem to recall a LOT of controversy about this or about something similar in the past.  You have to e-mail them to get the poop. So I hope some of yooze guys will respond, get the poop, and get us advised of any developments.  Thanks, lah!

If this is really valid and recognized by Thai Immigration, why can you not find this 5-year Multiple Entry PE Visa on the Thai Immigration web site?

No one is talking about the cost of the Elite Membership so I went on Google and found this web page.  If the prices are real, then it is an expensive approach to getting a Visa!

As it doesn't apply to nor benefit me, I have only paid attention "out of the corner of my eye."  However, wasn't there some controversy about this the last time it was promoted several years ago?  If I am remembering correctly--and correct me if I am wrong--people invested all this money in the card, but then it wasn't being honored or they couldn't use it or something???  No?

My experience is that probably half of so called "information" you read on ThaiVisa.com is rubbish and highly unreliable. I recall most of the information on what documents would be required for my type of visa was wrong and never asked for at the immigration office. It was from that I realized that local rules were the key issue when dealing with immigration. What happens in Phuket or Bangkok is almost irrelevant or quite likely different to what will be required in the north east offices. Ask there first, forget about the sages in Thaivisa.

I agree that you should contact the local office for what they require.  Not just for immigration.
I also know that the 'sages' you are so quick to discount offer a lot of good advice, and encourage you to do just that.

Total rip-off. Even have to continue with the 90 day reporting!!!!!!!!!

If possible, the best  thing is to get Permanent Residency or Citizenship, which is actually pretty simple these days.

... if you've worked and paid income tax in Thailand for 3 years (if I remember correctly) immediately prior to application and continue to do so during the course of the application.


Otherwise forget it.


Those among us who use an overseas income to help support our Thai spouse, Thai family count for nothing (except to our families).
