    getting Thai nationality to work as a lawyer without getting married

    By Anonymous, Created on: 22/08/2006, Last updated on: 06/08/2007

    » Could anyone please advise me if my boyfriend, who is an Australian paralegal, is able to work and live in Thailand without getting married straightaway.

    • Anonymous commented : iland - fax:022403666 - email:postbag@bangkokpost.co.th The news that Miss Universe Natalie Glebova wants to be a Thai citizen and call Thailand her home makes me so happy and proud that my country can give joy, warmth and happiness to everyone who visits. While a lot of foreigners want to become Thai and live here, the locals are trying to divide the nation. It is sad that outsiders love our home more than we do. LUCKKANA S It is not uncommon for foreigners to get Thai citizenships without having to go through lengthy procedures as common in other countries. In fact, there are countless foreigners who had have obtained Thai citizenships without having to learn how to read and write Thai language and or appreciating Thai culture. Many of who have never contributed significantly to Siam and or Thailand. There are many foreigners who have contributed greatly to Thailand and to Thai culture like Joe Luise (the founder of Joe Luise Thai Puppet Theater) and many others. Even the supportively formal Chinese communists were granted Thai citizenships beside other formal antagonists of Thai governments. So it is not uncommon for someone to obtain instant Thai citizenship with or without the Royal Decree if these individual are doing and or bring somethings (money and other personal wealths) to enhance Thai economy and to help enrich Thai culture. Tiger Woods has dual citizenship and was granted honorary bachelor degree from a Thai university. Does he very care about Thai citizenship and the Thai honorary degree? Because somethings are given, it does not have the same values as somethings that are earned.

    Postbag: High performance puzzling

    News, Published on 12/10/2014

    » Please forgive my lack of modesty. I get quite a smug feeling when I complete all three of the Bangkok Post crosswords at the weekend. The English-style cryptic on Saturdays is quite different to the American-style, two of which appear on Sunday. I think the description of "easy" for the smaller of the two Sunday offerings is flippant at best.

    Liberalise lease laws

    News, Postbag, Published on 29/01/2016

    » An argument often heard in Thailand is that to extend leases or grant ownership rights to foreigners would betray sensitivity to the history of colonisation in Southeast Asia. But Thailand has not been subject to colonisation and is seldom seen to be overly sensitive to its neighbours' problems or transgressions, unless they directly impact the kingdom.

    Publicity never bad

    » Thanks for your brave attempt at clarifying what bridge is and is not (Life, Feb 15). One of the unintended consequences of the saga is that the Pattaya bridge club, small by international standards, is now the most famous in the entire world, with several hundred newspaper and TV reports and tens of thousands of comments on blogsites talking about it. The tale has also made Jeremy Watson (the organiser) and myself (the founder, in 1994) the best-known bridge players throughout the five continents even though our standards sadly fall short of the brilliance usually required for notoriety.
