Upsurge in retirement visas

The number of one-year retirement visas has surged by more than 30 percent, according to a source at the Chonburi Immigration Bureau.  Although there are more British applicants than any other nationality, there is a noticeable growth in the number of Russian applicants.  If the trend continues, more than 45,000 such visas will have been issued by the end of the 2013.
