      Maybe a lot of retirees are moving out due to the new rules, so they might have abolished it secretly after Big Jok left.

    I live in Miami. Have been to Thailand two times. Looking to retire there. How do I deposit 800k bhat in Thai bank ninety days before applying for visa. I need to have a Thai bank account to deposit the money but I can’t understand. I can’t open a Thai bank account from the USA. Do I need to fly to Thailand just to open an account. Confused? Any help will be appreciated.

      In order to open a bank account in Thailand you have to be in Thailand, now the tricky situation is if you are in Thailand and want to open a bank account the bank will ask for a Non O visa and/or work permit and letter from the immigration but, there is always a but to apply for a Non O visa you need a bank account. Good Luck

      I would get a one-year multi-entry visa in the US before arriving in Thailand. You don’t need the money then in a Thai bank account. This is also a 2-year visa because you are given one year everytime you arrive. You will need to find a place to stay first though for 6 months. The Thai embassy needs that.

      I don’t know if any situation where immigration would accept an account held in a foreign country. Even if a Thai bank.

      If you are entering thailand on an O visa from home, you have 90 days to open an account and funds in bank for 60 days (1st extension).
