Our Grannies are sassier than ever and guess what, they are not stopping and actually can still compete with the millenials.
That’s why Thailand Tourism will be a good news for our baby boomers!
If you are age 50 and above, you can now get a long-stay visa for 10-years up from the existing (1) one year with one of the requirements being to report to the immigration police every 90-days.
This change comes as the Thai government aims to promote medical and wellness tourism.
The visa which costs 10,000 baht (approx. US$279.00) will be valid initially for five years and could be renewed for another five, according to Bangkok Post.
Apart from the age requirement, applicants need to have a monthly income of at least 100,000 baht (approx. US$2,789.00) or a bank deposit of at least 3 million baht (approx. US83,658.00) to be maintained for at least a year after receiving the visa.
In addition, they have to have health insurance coverage for at least US1,000 for outpatient care and US$10,000 or more for inpatient care per policy per year.
Target groups for the visa includes long-stay visitors from Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Taiwan who usually stay in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Chon Buri and other seaside provinces.
