How will assets owned by company be assessed by LTR Visa officer?

Company-owned assets will not be counted as your personal assets for your LTR Visa application (even if you are the sole owner of the company).

If I co-own a property with another individual (i.e. spouse/partner), how will the property be assessed by LTR Visa officer?

If you own a property with another individual, the value of the property will be counted proportionately. For example, if a property is under your name and your spouse, the officer will count 50% of the property value as your personal asset.

Where can I purchase Thai government bonds?

Unfortunately, Thai government bonds are not readily available to be purchased at any given time. So if the government bond is not available to be purchased at the time of your LTR Visa application, you may need to look into other investments instead (i.e. stock, properties).

How long do I need to maintain USD 1 million assets & USD 500,000 investment in Thailand?

You are required to maintain your wealth and investment status as required by BOI during the validity of your LTR Visa. If not, your visa may be revoked by the government due to lack of qualification.
