Default Retirement visa : address in Thailand

Hi there!
Q: do I need to have an official address (proven by an electricity bill in my name for example), when applying for the Non-Immigrant (3 months) Visa and then the One-year Retirement Visa ? (I have all the other requirements for such visas: age, money, etc.). THANKS !

Not for the non-imm. For ext. based on retirement (there is no retirement visa) you need a lease of your apt., house or whatever. They may ask or not.

Even for the non-imm visa, you need to prove you booked something for the time you'll stay there, if I'm not wrong ... Like a hotel reservation, airbnb or whatever ! You should verify, in order to avoid troubles

It seems that there are various experiences about that.... I can imagine that it depends on where (in which branch of the Emigration) one fills the forms..🤔🙄. Thank you for the info !

Non-imm O doesn't come from immigration but from a Royal Thai Consulate/ Embassy. There you need to give address of hotel or whatever. I assume you apply before you arrive in Thailand.

Thank you !
I actually plan to :
1. Enter on a "30-day permission to stay", then
2. Apply for a 3 months non-immigrant visa, then
3. Extend for one year
I have a Swiss passport and it seems it is possible this way.
Unless the rules have changed, which is always possible... 🤔

Why don't you apply before arriving? It would allow you to save some valuable time

It seems that I would have to apply in my native country (Switzerland), but currently I live in India. ;-)

If you can proof residence in India you can apply in India. Otherwise in your home country.
