Personally I would be applying for a retirement visa before arriving. You will need to be over 50 years of age and meet the financial requirements to obtain this visa.

Please visit the Thai Embassy website for the most current and accurate information. They now offer online visa applications along with the most current information for each category. Chok dee, kha.

You must get the visa before heading to Thailand. You cannot get visas here. You can only extend or change status.

however, there should be no problem entering on a visa-free 30-day stamp as a tourist, and then do a visa run to a neighbouring country once all the documents are ready for a retirement visa.

Try one of these http://www.thaiconsulatechicago.org/...hon_consul.pdf to get the info you need there is 3 for texas.
As i know it you can't apply for retirement visa outside thailand and you also need a multi entry visa first and take it from there, aleast thats how it is for brits!! but i'd say same as for everybody,
And i wouldn't use these http://www.thaiembassy.com/visa/thai...FUKc7QodI1yk2g just an agency!!

In lieu of the 800,000 THB deposited and resting in a Thai bank, you can also document 65,000 of income per month.
