Now many old people like to go to Thailand to provide for the aged. The Thai government has very broad conditions for applying for a visa for the aged in Thailand. The basic requirements are as follows: the age should be over 50 years old and there should be at least 800000 baht in the deposit account, or there should be at least 65000 baht in pension income every month. The endowment visa can stay for 15 months for the first time, which is one visa for one year, and can be renewed indefinitely. If the endowment visa is renewed within the validity period, the holder can freely enter and leave Thailand for many times, and the funds in the endowment visa will not be frozen. After the endowment visa is completed, the 800000 baht in the bank account can be withdrawn at any time for other purposes.

The general process is as follows:

1. Prepare the certificate of no crime (valid for 3 months), take the ID card and household register, and go to the place where the household register is located to issue the certificate of no crime. After opening, get the agency that can handle the foreign notarization, and go to handle the foreign notarization and double authentication of the Ministry of foreign affairs and the embassy. Notarization needs to be translated into Thai. The Thai Embassy only recognizes Thai documents. The whole process takes about two weeks.
