In this article I talk about retiring in Bali, Indonesia.
I want to point out an error that could have a big impact on anyone wishing to retire in Thailand. In my original draft (which is available on this website) I wrote that an annual Thai visa wouldn’t be granted if a retiree couldn’t prove that they made at least $2,500 a year in income.
But the magazine editors must have thought that was too good to be true. They accidentally published that a retiree requires proof of $2,500 a month in income. That would sure put a damper on retiring in Thailand.
Yes, to live in Thailand you must prove that you have an income of at least $2,500 a year
