Things you need to know about the Long Term Thai retirement visa:
5 Year Retirement Visa Application Process
It is required that you apply for a 90-day initial non-immigrant visa from the Thai embassy or consulate in your home country prior to your application for a retirement visa in Thailand.
You will have to wait for 60 days to be in Thailand before you can file your retirement visa application at the immigration office or you must be on the last 30 days of your current permit to stay.
Note: The visa extension may be revoked if the sum of money in the bank account is less than 3 million Baht at the end of the first year of stay period in Thailand OR the sum of money in the bank account is less than 1.5 million Baht at the end of the second year of stay period in Thailand, and/or the money in said account was spent outside Thailand.
Foreigners must report, in person, to the immigration officer every 1 year for the examination of the qualifications and supporting documents.
The foreigner on a visa exemption stamp or a tourist visa can still apply for a retirement visa given that the foreigner has already met the requirements for the non-immigrant O visa and for the five- year extension visa applications. This can be done at the immigration office in Thailand.
