    Not worried about that as there is lifelong a workaround on hand (OCI )

    I looked at that "wealthy pensioner" category. Unless I can classify profit from stock investments as income I won't be able to meet the income requirement. The leaflet is of course too high level to specify what can be considered sources of income.

    The want rich people - but don't realise rich people don't usually receive paychecks.

    As for remote workers - not sure how many actually are able to base themselves in Thailand. I was recently contacted by Meta - they are filling a lot of remote jobs in Europe. No offices, but you still have to base yourself in a European country - almost any will do - and once you choose, you have to stay there; no hopping over to another country even if inside the block...

    Delusional - The only word that comes to mind when i think of Thailand and Malaysia policymakers..

    European/South and Central American/Carribean countries offering similar visas with much lower entry barriers and lot more benefits but these suckers imagine people are in the queue jumping over each other to be in these countries. Playing xenophobic and poplulist card to protect local people's interest and get some political mileage is one thing but coming up with half-baked policy and iron-clad entry barriers yet expecting 1M to join is beyond delusional, might as well dont come up with the scheme in first place.. Oh well, they never learn from past failed schemes..
