    Land purchase through Thai spouse forbidden: Land Dept

    By Suttisan, Created on: 28/05/2009, Last updated on: 02/10/2016

    » -- Land purchase through Thai spouse forbidden: Land Dept The director general of the Land Department has reiterated that foreigners using Thai nominees to buy land anywhere in the country will have their land title deeds revoked if caught – even if the nominee in question is a lawfully wedded...

    • Somluck commented : I believe it is known as a sovereign state (country). Each country makes its own laws. Some like you might want every country to have the same laws, others don't. Just look at Britain leavin the European Union. I don't find the law in relation to a less than 50% equitable interest property difficult to understand. It is very simple non Thais can only have a less than 50% equitable interest in property. I find it disturbing that people say "I bought the property in my spouse's name" and wonder why they breach the 50% rule. What do the words "I bought the property in my spouse's name" mean? It means to me you actually equitably have a 100% interest in the property and the spouse is simply a bare trustee whose name is on the title. The Thai law is simply normal Anglo Saxon law as practiced in England, USA, Canada, New Zealand, etc etc.. The same can be for the use of Thai companiesfor the same purpose. Both arrangement are simply very legal silly constructs ( that don't work) intended to get around a very simple policy.

    The Value of a Tourist.

    By Sean Moran, Created on: 18/01/2009, Last updated on: 15/12/2010

    » What are some of the most common positive and negative results of foreign tourists from overseas visiting Thailand? Thai opinions welcome, kap.

    • boonfah commented : I understand Thais concern on this. I am one of those tourists and am horrified at the lack of respect some tourists show your country as all Thais I have come across are such a respectfull and friendly people. I try to stay away from Bangkok for that reason so i dont have to see drunk English in the bars their. But going up north I love Nakon Sawan and stayed there for a month recently. I love Thailand and I love the poeple (my girlfriend is Thai so am very biased). I only wish that my own country in England that people would have the same respect for others. Unfortunaltley your economy does reley a little too much on tourism which is shame for a country with such vast wealth. Of course without all the world bank and IMF debt that Thailand is in you wouldnt need to be so reliant on tourism or its money. It is only with these loans that countries like the US and the UK steal your vast natural wealth for themseleves as they have done all around the globe.

    • kokok commented : Well, I think you people should know that this is the case with not just Thailand, America or any other country for that matter (Don’t know about England!) but the whole world. Money is power. We can literally do anything with money. Money is what we all want. Right? Same goes with anyone and is it not obvious that we are living in an era of complete bribery? I do hope he had insurance though!

    » I have been with him for 10 months. I'm pregnant about 5 months now. we have been having problem about his lying about his ex wife that he still contact her. Until now his ex wife just sent valentines cards to him and ask him to return to her. he never tell me anything until i found the card....

    • Anonymous commented : Wait a minute!!!!!! All readers have assumed that the poster is truthful….. Is it possible that perhaps there is another motive?? Is this a story that we have all heard many many times?? Farang marrying for love, taking her to the UK, America, Germany, trying to give her a good life. And than things go wrong… I would like to hear the other side of the story… Is it possible it goes something like this… I met her in a bar and heard all the stories of Thai women but I married her because I loved her. I give her money each month and I send some to her parents. I brought her to England and did my best to give her the best life possible. I wanted to start a family. But soon after she got to England she started complaining about everything. She spent money foolishly. She did not cook or take care of the house. She became lazy. Now she has heard all the stories of getting divorced and getting my assets that I worked so hard for. She wants to get a divorce, take my money and run back to Thailand. And she wants advice on how to do it… The only advice this reader can give is that most airlines will accept passengers up to their last month of pregnancy. There should be absolutely no restrictions on international travel for someone 5 months pregnant. Ask him for the money. Perhaps he will be glad to get rid of you..

    British Embassy in Bangkok

    By Anonymous, Created on: 05/10/2004, Last updated on: 25/02/2011

    » In March, my Thai partner wanted to visit me in London. Before granting a visa, the Embassy wanted a mountain of paperwork including proof of my income, whether or not I woned my own home and a whole lot of other things. At this stage, I have to say that we have many controversial issues in the UK...

    • Anonymous commented : Hi all I'm a Thai woman wanting to share my bad experience with the ECO in Bangkok just yesterday (22Feb)....I'm working in BKK as a tour guide, my boyfriend is English and we are in same age (31) been together for 2 years. I joined him in England ,after he had to return home, with a visitor visa in 2004 then again in 2005...I had no problem in granting this visa as I have travelled to EU and US before. Anyways, this time is different, we decided to try to live in England together so that I applied for a Settlement Visa as the unmarried partner which have been together for 2 years. I came to the visa section yesterday 1 pm and was called for a short interview at 4.15 pm. ...I came in the interview room seeing a British lady and a Thai gentleman.....he asked what language I prefer to use I said either Thai or English, he suggested that Thai should be most clear, and I agreed with him............she started the question.... with his translation....I answered in Thai.....when it came to the question what is my boyfriend doing ...I told them the name of company he is working for which is in England.....she asked if he's in England how could you live together?........I answered in Thai that The first year he was in Thailand doing his own business on bra-bra-bra...but ...I stopped for him to translate and he did translated what I said......She stopped typing and said ' then where is his company's documents?' openning my folder very fast and said out loud ' YOU'RE CONFUSING ME, I DONT HAVE ALL DAY FOR THIS !' in the same time throwing my folder on the desk/counter quite hardly....then turned to the Thai gentleman ' I asked WHAT IS HE DOING? it is very clear, WHAT IS HE DO-ING?' with an angry voice. I was shocked by her act which I've never expected to see. I was so scared instead of walking out from the room ...I apologised as if it's my fault......she said that I have to come back again for a full interview not just a short interview coz my case is more complicated and she told me to come back on March,6th.......I came home with disappointment in UK officer the way she treats the applicant......I've made a complaint to ECO Manager today with no expectation to receive any reply but at least I've done what I wanted to. I'm not sure if I want to come back to the UK embassy ever again.....I applied for this visa because of my boyfriend.......I dont care if they would refuse my visa coz I have a good life here in BKK and I have lots of beautiful beaches to enjoy and my boyfriend dont want to be in England anyway. ...I am just sad with the way they treat Thai people. If she had just slowly read my document, she would have found what she was looking for. If she had just listenned carefully, she wouldn't have broken someone's heart. If she had just been a little bit more patient,everything around her would have been more beautiful.

    • Anonymous commented : I dated a Thai Girl for to 2 years. Family asked for 500,000 baht dowry. I got a bank loan, no problem, I was the luckiest man on the earth, right. Three months after the marriage, (I'm waitting for her visa to the U.S.)she's found a millionaire from England and has changed her phone number. My thoughts, her family thinks they'll be rich in a few years, and who cares about farang hearts.
