    Yes apply more than 15 days before permit to stay ends.

    Form 8 for retirement. Must have proof that 800k baht in bank is from outside Thailand.

    Form 6 or 7 for having a wife, Must show 400k baht in bank

    its form tm87 2,000 thb, not all offices will do it ( but should, some offices will put obstacles in the way to guide you to an agent), have to have proof of address by way of rental agreement etc. money only has to be in bank on day of applying, no seasoning required, can be applied for on 30 day visa exempt and 60 day tourist visa arrival.

    For the spouse Non-O, I see there is no stated requirement to show that the 400k baht has come from overseas. No sentence that says "Evidence of foreign currency fund transferred to Thailand" as with the retirement option. Slightly odd but ones less hassle.

    When I go to Thailand to stay with my wife I'm still not sure which route to take:

    - visa exempt entry, and then get the Non-O in Thailand, or
    - get the 90 day Non-O in the UK and then extend it in Thailand

    Probably the latter.

    Hi gents, thanks for your replys, I spoke to the visa agency last night, they can change a tourist visa into a non immigrant O but they want 18,000 thb to do it, then a further 14,000 thb to extend it for 1 year, the agency have said that they do not require proof of funds in bank.....anyway I'm going to get the non O from hull (it's cheaper) then use the agency to do the extension.
    once again many thanks for the replies and information

    Yes There have been a few posts here and on other forums about Hull as an alternative to London online. A really good option.

    Ray8472, I just got fed up of the impossible to use London visa site, hull were very helpful on the phone and gave good advice so I'm going to get the visa from them, it's a bit of a drive from London but at least I can get the visa sorted out easier.

    Wouldn't Cardiff be easier? Make an appointment and Cardiff will issue Non - O single entry on same day.

    Cardiff is a bit closer yes, but I haven't been to Hull so is somewhere different. Either would be fine.

    According to the Cardiff consular web site they don't issue the non immigrant O visa that I'm going for

    Applicants aged over 50 years of age can apply with financial backing, but they must apply through the Royal Thai Embassy, London. Consulates are not authorised to issue on this basis

    - - - - - - - u p d a t e d - - - - - - -

    For some reason the text I copied from the Cardiff consulate has shown up in white....you will need good eyesight to see it

    On what basis/criteria are you applying for Non -O? - thai wife,state pension or over 50

    Non-Immigrant SINGLE ENTRY visas which the Hull Consulate can issue subject to London Embassy approval

    i would go for the 'O' visa married from Hull, less grief than trying in Thailand, Hull approved my 'married' 'O' visa in a couple of days. not really a problem for me as i live in Lincolnshire.

    I see on their web site that they don't issue Non -O based on 50+
    I have only had tourist visa and non-O based on receiving state pension from Cardiff.
    It might be worth phoning or emailing them - web site information is not always accurate.
