An arrest record for retirement visa?


chang beer

Recommended Posts

I'm aware of having certain things in order such as medical record,criminal record and sufficient funds 800,000 bht or equivalent in Thai bank for 2 or 3 months prior to attaining ones retirement visa.

 

I wonder if my DUI arrest way back in 1996 in California will affect in anyway when attempting to get a retirement visa?

 

thank you

where are you applying? If in Thailand, they do not run any checks. If back home, again they do not run any checks, just tick NO to criminal charges and convictions if it even has it on the form.

Never done it but all the forms applying back home say you have to provide a CRC.

 

Best to come in on an O Visa and apply for an Extension of Stay Retirement here as you say.

I was in a similar situation.  I thought I might have to produce a CRC from the FBI.  The Thai Embassy in Washington, DC told me I only needed a CRC from my local police station (I lived in Virginia at the time).  Since my "offense" occured in a different juristiction than I was living in at the time, the CRC fortunately did not reflect my DUI. Not sure if a CRC from a California police station is the same.  I recall the CRC costing me about US$5 and they gave it to me on the spot.  I agree with OnThe Edge; if you have any concerns at all, apply for your Extension of Stay in Thailand....much easier process.

If you apply for a retirement visa in Thailand it is about age and financial, applying for an O-A which is  a retirement visa in your own country then you need a Police check, medicals, financial etc, pain in the ass.

 

It would be so much easier to apply in Thailand if you need a bit of reading material
