I read that fine print.  What happens if, for whatever reason, they do decide to cancel the program.  Is there a refund? Is the PE visa at least kept in-tact?  Or are they, 100% within their legal rights, to accept the payment of 1M THB and then cancel the program 1 or 2 years later (for whatever reason) and offer no form of compensation to the purchasers?

Any subscription program, membership, club that one would join where you pay upfront for a long period of time, and note a cancellation policy with no compensation would cause one to pause and inquire such a question.

The visa has to be renewed every 5 years so if the scheme was cancelled the remainder of the existing 5 years visa would be honoured. The privileges for the remainder of the 20 years, however, could be lost. The scheme is obliged to make a refund dependant on the reason for termination.

  • 90 day reporting is still required.
  • They will do the 90 day report for you, but I believe you need to deliver/collect the passport from their office.

If you don't want to do it online or go yourself, drop your passport to the people at TE and they will go for you.....And you never ever get a problem. It's all taken care of.

I am looking at this and doing the math, but I presume that the TE people only do the 90 day reporting in BKK. Is that correct?

So for the 20 year Elite Superiority Extension, its 1m baht total? No annual fees?

How much would the annual visa/ 5 year renewal cost?

According to the TE website there is no annual fee or annual renewal cost quoted. http://www.thailandelite.com/glimpse.php

So you are saying that the people who don't like Ford cars are not driving it.  :w00t: 

And the people who like Ford cars are driving Ford cars.

Wow, never would have guessed.

 

He is saying that the people driving cars are not complaining. It seems to be the ones that are walking.

Interesting point about having to pay for any Privileges used if the Scheme is cancelled...

In case of the termination pursuant to Clause2.5 (3) above (i.e. Government Cancels the Scheme], the Membership hereunder shall immediately become invalid and the Company shall refund the remaining Membership Fee (if any) to the Member, within thirty (30) days after the Card has been returned to the Company, less the following balances (if any) and costs:
 

  1. The Penalty Charge and/or outstanding fees; and
  2. The costs of Privileges which has been used by the Member during the validity of Membership.

 

As others have said, most of the privileges are of no interest to me but 1Million THB for 20 years is very attractive & includes the 2 main privileges I'd want... 1) Visa & 2) Expedited Airport Services

No annual fees.

There is no annual renewal. You get a new visa every 5 years for free.

If you don't leave the country for a year you could apply for a one year extension at immigration for a fee of 1900 baht.

So if you leave you get 1 year stamp on re entry, no charge. If you don't leave, a 1900 extension is required after a year.
