Owning a rental property in Thailand is exciting and an excellent way to generate profits for yourself over time.

Thailand is now offering 10 year visa for people aged 50 years old and up.

The requirements to get this visa is that you have a monthly income of minimum 100,000 Thai Baht or can afford to deposit 3 million Thai Baht in your Thai bank account for 12 months.

My immediate answer is obviously “yes!”

But is this fair to other seniors who cannot afford this or do not receive 100,000 Thai Baht per month in retirement pension?

And why at all not allow anyone to retire in Thailand no matter of age? Many rich people aged from 30 to 50 years from abroad would love to retire in Thailand, but they’re not allowed to do so because they are “too young”! Isn’t that nuts? Yes it is!

With this new law I can foresee some troubles:
