    The application site.

    Thailand Smart Visa - 4 Year Smart Visa Application ? Interactive Associates

    As usual, the fine print makes it a questionable way to go. Suppose ok for someone currently employed at 200k baht per month or 20mil baht to invest.

    The 20M investment in Business here could be OK if you can have shares in a company and are getting a reasonable return in dividends, its wait and see how it works out for people who can afford to do it IMO

    as usual, they try to hype it with all kind of silly claims to attract suckers, only to have fine prints restricting every usage
