Retirement Visa For Thailand

Recommended Posts



I am looking at retiring in Chiang Mai in Thailand with my wife, I want to get a retirement visa as I think it fits my situation, we will rent initially but buy a house later when we decide on the area we like, my questions is, what is needed to get a retirement visa, also can I continue to trade shares without a work permit?

See the Thai embassy website in Australia, it has the list of requirements, but in summary you need some money (amount changes yearly), Health insurance and no criminal past. If your wife in NOT thai, she will need a similiar visa.  If she is Thai, consider a Spousal Visa.


You can trade shares online on either visa.


Unless your wife is Thai, you will be restricted to purchasing a condo/appt only.  As only Thai can own land.  There are options (set up a company and it buys the land, or lease the land for 30+ years)  Be sure to get credible legal advice.  So many foreigners get stung. 




Makes me sick, in the fact that I must include a disclaimer.
