A Note on Bank Statements

For first-time applicants, the THB 500,000 deposit must be made at least 30 days prior to applying for your extension. If it is your second or subsequent year applying, there must be THB 500,000 deposited at least 3 months prior to applying for your extension. Each Guardian applying must have their own THB 500,000 deposit made.

The amount of money shown in the bank book must correspond to the information shown on the letter from the bank. If both Guardians share a joint-account, the amount needs to be THB 1,000,000, and needs to be presented together with a Marriage Certificate. Please note that it is advisable to have your own personal account over a joint account.

Always be sure to check with the official Immigration regulations to ensure that you have everything, or contact Phuket’s local Immigration Office:
