It's a crime: Foreigners marrying Thais now subject to fingerprints taken for criminal background

They are overstepping their authority, because even if you are a criminal you can still marry, there are no laws forbidding it. Hell, they even marry people in gaol. Hope HRW will challenge this

??????

Of course they can make a law banning it. Laos banned men over 60 or something marrying Laotian women.

Any country can pass any law they want to.

Don't even need a law. Pass a regulation requiring police check as part of the documentation. Document not present, sorry, can not marry. Nothing to do with the law or lack of.

what really amazes me about the brain power of these geniois officials is when you fly to or from a country like AU USA any criminal warrant is on the screen dear boy.  So your once again wasting time and being a monkey lol.

I hate that word Farang 

So if that's the case maybe Thai women should also be checked 

To insure they are marriage for the right reason for Love not Money

I think you're confusing Laos with Cambodia.

Do I need to point out that the regulation applies to all foreigners marrying Thais, not just those from the US and Oz, etc?

Quite right sir! Thanks for the correction.

Aged 50 and over. Pity that law wasn't in LOS when I wanted to get married!

I was thinking Laos because I know they don't allow unmarried foreign man/ Laos woman to sleep together.

If you have done no wrong, you need not fear a knock on your door at midnight.

If I get a knock on my door at midnight, be assured someone's gonna' have a problem and

it ain't necessarily gonna' be me.

Tell me about it! I eventually married my Lao girlfriend after around 6 years as we had a kid. Impossible to do in Laos, with major risks as we had already broken Lao law, impossible to do in Thailand as we couldn't get the Affirmation to Marry from the Lao Embassy, so we married in the UK. Still difficult when back in Laos as the marriage is not recognised. Luckily the village headman is sympathetic.

In the US, they would do a cavity search.

No problem for me then. My teeth are fine, not a cavity to be seen.

The issue is the reason stated for the criminal record check -- is the responsibility of the immigration department with regards to issuing a fiancé / marriage visa -- not some two bit local provincial administrative department.  You do not get the right to reside here because of marriage, only that that is one avenue to apply for a visa ... but visas can always be denied to people that the government deems not worthy.   As such the regulation change is just racist or xenophobic if they are requiring the check only on the foreigner (for permission to get married).   

You do not need a marriage visa to marry a Thai and after you marry her you do not need one I have stayed on my retirement. Learn the rules before posting nonsense
