Retirement extension - Monthly income method
« on: August 09, 2020, 06:42:21 PM »
Has anyone recently done a retirement extension using the monthly income method at KK Immigration?


If so what were the requirements?


Trying to work out options for after 26th September.


Thanks

I hope to get mine this Thursday or Friday. Currently waiting on the transaction report for the last 12 months from Bangkok Bank.

Can someone please help Windy and Savannah with the infor they are asking for regarding extensions? Mine isn't due until December, but I am fuzzy about getting a year of statements from the bank.   Tks!

Windy, Savannah, everybody, please keep us posted.

The following was presented on this Forum under "Retirement Extensions" late last August.  Remember, this was done under a supervisor who is no longer at the KK Imm Office.  We now have a new supervisor.  A compatriot of mine just had his done several weeks ago and it is essentially the same list.

I did the renewal of my retirement extension today at Khon Kaen Immigration.  Other than the fact that IMM was crowded and it took a long time for my number to be called, I spent about 30 minutes once called on.  ALL IS GOOD IN KKC!First, got called by Station #1 I/O.  When I told him I was there to get my retirement extension based upon the monthly income method, he looked like he just got a migraine.  He picked up everything I brought and gave it back to me to go see the I/O supervisor in the enclosed office.Second, after the niceties, she asked if I had any documentation on my previous year's income, such as a letter from the USG, i.e., Social security Admin, a letter from my employer, i.e., Lockheed Martin, and anything thing else to support.  I also had with me my IRS 2018 Form 1040 and some other documentation from my private retirement account from which I withdraw funds.  (She was pleased.)Then she looked at the rest of the material I had to support the monthly income requirements.
  • 1-year Bank Statement.
  • Bank Book and a copy of it. (never opened it.)
  • Even though I had an online copy of my bank statements, she could have cared less.She then said that next year, I needed to provide them a small spread sheet (see attached) to be presented in front of the 1-year bank Statement.  (She penciled one together as we spoke and put it on top of the bank statement to go back to the I/O.So, here is the list of items to be provided:
  • Extension Application with picture.
  • Passport with a copy of the pertinent pages.
  • TM6 and 90-Day Report receipt
  • Proof of residency (Yellow Book) and copy.
  • 1-year Bank Statement, making sure there is an entry in the month that you are submitting the application.  She also suggested to highlight the International Transfers.
  • A small spread sheet of "My Income"(the amounts transferred to my Thai bank, Bangkok Bank.)
  • Bank Book and a copy of the pages for the whole year (they really never looked at the book except to flip the pages quickly, or the copy of the pages I provided.)
  • Once done with the supervisor, went back out with the papers to the I/O.  She yelled out something to him about "not a problem."I paid my fee.  Gave him 2,000 baht (2-1,000 baht bills), and got a receipt for 1,900 baht - enough said!He finished the process and took it back to the supervisor.  A minute of two later, she brought out the package and told him to have me SIGN EVERY DAMN PAGE!  (Guess Bangkok IMM Auditors are sticklers for that.)It was pretty benign.  So, the I/O's don't process the monthly income evaluation, the supervisor does (at least for me.)PS.  The supervisor said to make sure you have equal to or greater than the 65K baht per month, or it would really be a problem.

Thanks Frank and the guy who originally posted the info.

I wish they would think through things before making up rules.  For example,

"1-year Bank Statement, making sure there is an entry in the month that you are submitting the application.  She also suggested to highlight the International Transfers."

The extension for my deadline is 13 Dec.  However, my overseas deposit Usually arrives sometime between the 16th-20th, so impossible to comply with the requirement to show a deposit for the month of Dec.   Moreover, one year there was some question about my application which I filed the day before the deadline. The I/O scolded me for waiting so long, and (intelligently) advised filing early so there would be plenty of time to take care of any questions.  I think you can file as much as 45 days before the deadline.

It is I in the same, Rex.  I am going in on Wednesday next with the information.  I took way more than we needed.  So I killed a tree that did not have to kill!  We will see what has changed with this year's submittal, and you know there will be changes.

By the way, if your December transfer happens in late December then you should go apply after the November transfer to request your next year's extension!

I have a Non 0 multi entry valid until Jan 2021, however my 90 day permission to stay from my last border run, plus a 60 day extension, to visit wife, have both expired and I have been on amnesty for about 7 weeks.


Any idea if KK Immigration would process a yearly Retirement extension when I'm on amnesty?  I have read on Thai Visa some offices will and some won't.
