#retirement

Approximately 250,000 Western expatriates in Thailand, mainly retirees relying on one-year extensions based on retirement or marriage, are growing concerned about changes in the country's visa and taxation policies.

Renewing annual extensions is becoming more challenging due to increased paperwork, complex bank certificates, and a greater emphasis on proving a Thai address. Additionally, changes in Thai Revenue policy have led to uncertainty about whether foreign-derived income will be subject to Thai taxation starting in 2024.

Wealthier expatriates have turned to alternative visas, but retirees on modest incomes may be caught between the government's desire to attract revenue from tourists and investors.

The UK has rejected an EU offer for a limited youth mobility scheme for 18 to 30-year-olds, preferring individual country deals over a bloc-wide arrangement. This decision is part of the UK's stance on ending free movement post-Brexit.

The proposed EU scheme aimed to facilitate easier travel and work opportunities for young people but was turned down by No 10, citing the end of free movement within the EU. Labor also expressed no plans for a similar scheme if elected, focusing instead on new arrangements with the EU on various fronts.

United kingdom,United state

#visafee

The U.S. has increased visa fees for foreign artists, particularly impacting K-Pop tours. The new fees, over 250% higher, pose challenges for smaller labels and emerging artists, potentially reducing the frequency of international acts touring the U.S.

This could lead to more extended tours or hiring more U.S.-based staff to manage costs. Fans and industry professionals express concerns about the impact on cultural diversity and the music scene.
