    Lump sum plus income.

    Being younger than some of you and not in receipt of the UK state pension, I've always used the above route. Is this still available? Thanks for any info, Chas.

    Think you'll find Charley that in the absence of an Embassy letter, for the 'combo' method, you'll need to show monthly transfers/income to your Thai bank account, of the amount necessary to bring the total (bank plus income) to whatever method you're using (Marriage/400K, Retirement 800K). Probably best to speak to whichever office that you use for more specific advice.

    Although using monthly bank transfers in lieu of letters in this period of change, and Immigration offices have been told to use 'leniency' (i.e. not requiring the full 12 months history of transfers that future applications will require), there are reports of some offices failing to do this, and demanding the full 12 months history. Again, best to check with your local IO.

    The best advice. Always check local office for transactions with any gov entity.

    I did and office here will accept last year "average monthly" bank transfers of 65k baht.
    Year total 12 = 65k or more.

    All a bunch of bureaucratic crap but to be expected with govs world wide.

    To clarify (asking) So taking that the applicant needs 400k;
    If he has 200K in the bank for the last 3 months, he needs to show a history of income just under 17k per month? (400k/12 = 34k (rounded up))
    ?

    ^

    Logic says yes, however best to confirm with the actual office to be used before submitting the application.
