    O-A visa extension

    If you do not renew your passport when you go to Immigration to further extend they will only give you an extension to the expiry date of your current passport.

    UK pensions

    Exactly - Remember Steve Webb (Lib Dem) when in opposition spoke no less than 4 times condemning this unjust rule and urged government to do the right thing and stop this unjust freezing of pensions....move onto the coalition Steve Webb Pension Minister....This rule hasnt been changed in decades and I see no need to change it now!!
  3. Well I know that but whats wrong with looking at alternatives and sending ideas to the BE, they can negotiate we cant. Try and look for a positive outcome instead of being a defeatist, slagging off the Embassy will achieve nothing, Ive complained bitterly to them now Im looking for them to find a compromise only they can speak to TI on our behalf we cant!!
  4. As the Embassy Letter is no longer an option and that the BE website suggest bank statements showing income deposits into a Thai Bank I thought this would be a reasonable solution that would meet the income needs of Thai Imm, would show the income deposited into your bank and easily verified by a Bank letter supported by the Bank Book or statements.
  5. If they want to go down the road of 40/65 deposits a month into a Thai account, this is easily verified by a bank letter similar to the 400/800k letter stating that Mr Expat has deposited 400/800k Thai Baht into his account over the last 12 mths which equates to 40/65k per month. (divided by 12 or the months you have been in Thailand) Backed up as they do now with with seasoned cash showing your Bank Book. One has to wonder why this hasnt been suggested by the BE (though I dont think they understand the process of gaining an extension) or even by Immigration then this will alleviate all needs for embassy letters and meet the requirements to show an average income over the year which equates to the sums required by Immigration.

  8. Add up the total deposits over the year and divide by 12. Immaterial where they come from. Surely even a bank can do that. It can be every month every other, every quarter, twice a year, from 1, 2, 5, 10 different sources as long as over the year it totals up to 800k it will equate on average to 65k per month. So a letter by the bank stating this and backed up by your bank book, how much more verifying do they need. I dont bring 65k every month I bring in more or less to meet my needs or the value of the pound. I was suggesting if they wanted to see the income arrive in a Thai Bank.

    USA income affidavit

    and she said that this will be acceptable to Immigration?
  11. Care to share how this is possible & acceptable to Immigration? With the withdrawal of the Embassy Letter this is what most of us have been waiting for.
  12. here is the email to complain about the consular service or in this case lack of it. http://[email protected]
  13. <deleted> what a question I have been complaining bitterly to the Embassy. Deny, I have made several representations complaining about the withdrawal of the service and when I get a reply from the embassy I post the response. I have written to the FCO, Embassy and complained about the service or lack of it...what have you done? I am a retired Brit living in Udon Thani, If you read it properly the post reads My latest reply from our helpful Embassy
  14. The email to complain about Consular services.. http://[email protected]
  15. As per this so called meeting I have heard two different versions, the official one from Sarah Penn that they were asked to verify income, another that I read was that the Imm asked them to scrutinise the income docs more closely before issuing the letter and if in doubt make further enquiries. Another version of course is the so called FCO Audit, where the auditor asked if there was another way British Nationals could prove their income and the reply was Yes through Bank Statements hence the removal of the Embassy letter.... All comes down to what is the correct version of events.
