Many travelers see Thailand as a place for wintering and longer stays. Among the reasons to stay longer in the land of smiles are the following: summer for a whole year, moderate prices for housing and food, amazing nature and the atmosphere of an eternal holiday.
But permission for a long stay in Thailand is not so easy to get. An interesting option is provided for foreign citizens who have reached the age of 50 years, due to the opportunity to open a Retirement Visa.
A retirement visa is issued for a period of 1 year after receiving a Non O visa for 3 months. Total you can stay in Thailand for 15 months with the possibility of re-renewal of the retirement visa.
A retirement visa is available for persons over 50 years old. If one of the spouses has opened a retirement visa, and the second has not yet reached the required age, he can open a Non O visa for 3 or 12 months.
The second important condition for obtaining a retirement visa is the solvency of the applicant. Therefore, an extract from a Thai bank confirming the presence of 800,000 baht in the account is considered one of the main documents when you apply for a retirement visa.
You can open a retirement visa only after receiving a Non O visa. If you have a stamp on arrival or a tourist visa is open, you need to take care of opening a Non O visa in advance, since its registration period is about 3 weeks, if you need to register without leaving Thailand (sometimes this service is not available, about the possibility of registration at the moment Non O visas for the purpose of obtaining a retirement visa, without leaving Thailand must be specified).
Independently obtaining a retirement visa is troublesome, requiring a lot of time, effort and patience. You will have to collect all the information yourself, fill out questionnaires in English and spend more than one hour in the general line at the immigration office. Not everyone has the opportunity to deposit 800,000 baht in a Thai bank account.
