If you’re more than 50 years old, you’re eligible to apply for a one-year OA Long Stay Visa, and extend it each year to prolong your stay in Thailand. The health insurance requirement for OA Long Stay Visa is to have inpatient coverage exceeding 400,000 baht, and outpatient coverage exceeding 40,000 baht. Applying for the OA Long Stay Visa is highly recommended for expats who are already retired or planning to retire in Thailand. The retirement visa allows you to stay in Thailand uninterrupted for one year and also provides multiple entries. You can follow the instructions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to begin your application for OA Long Stay Visa.
