Moving my stuff to Thailand

Recommended Posts

hi all, I am in the process (hopefully) of moving to Thailand with my girlfriend of several years. We have a house in Srakeow and i have spent much of the last two years there. I have a Non immigrant 0 visa for one year, and I understand that I can apply for a retirement visa after three months (sadly i turned 50 this year).

 

I want to bring lots of my personal effects and household stuff to Thailand but i am confused as to whether i can do this on either of these visas. Can anyone give any advice?

 

I have been told that I am entitled only to bring in used personal effects (limited to clothes, books and computer) tax/duty free. Other items are tax/dutyable. Does anyone know if this is correct, since there I many things I would lioke to bring from my home.

 

thanks

You will find that the level of duty levied on the stuff above the (perhaps meagre) allowances will be so prohibitive as to take your breath away

Did your TG (wife) ever get to stay in your country for any length of time?

Same thing I've always heard. I'm on my 3rd annual retirement extension and follow any related topics pretty close. I think the only people that get a break are ones with a work permit. I beleive they can bring in one shipment duty free. The rules for retirees are not very favorable. In addition, if you do annual extensions based on retirement vice marriage you cannot become eligible for Permanent Residency (PR) status.

Thanks.

 

I suppose my question should have been 'am i elligible to bring in household effects duty free, either a non-immigrant type 'o' or a retirement visa?' From your response I suspect the answer is no.

 

I would also be grateful if you could expand on your non qualification for permanent residency comment regarding retirement visa. How can you qualify for permanaent residency?

I'm not real knowledgable about PR status so take all this with a grain of salt. This is from reading other peoples reports about it.

 

I believe you can become eligible after staying three years on consecutive annual extensions based on marriage or work permits. Retirement extensions were excluded which are easier to do each year even if married as long as you're over 50.

 

It also requires being able to converse in Thai and a few other things and there are quotas of something like 100 per nationality which usually aren't met anyway for most countries.

 

If any BM here has this maybe they can correct anything I got wrong or add more detail.

Thats why i asked has your TGF ever been to your country.

The answer is NO for you, but there is nothing stopping your TGF from bringing "her own" personal belongings back, if she had resided in your country for a certain ammount of time.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
