In reality it's a non-issue, unless you've been a bad doggie in Thailand, from the linked article:-

 


 

Supposedly you are to provide a criminal record check when applying for a retirement visa ! But I don't think people do. If you haven't been a bad boy or girl you have nothing to worry about lol

Just hot air from the Thai authorities as usual.  Completely useless exercise as the checks would never get done outside of Thailand and anyone wanted for a crime in Thailand wouldn't have had their fingerprints taken anyway, unless they were in custody.  Add to that the likelihood of a farang criminal wanted in Thailand wishing to marry a Thai woman to stay there is... Duh!

On a side note - Phuket government office, what a laughable shit hole place that is. Spent 2 weeks trying to get my marriage certificate, few scheduled appointments and countless run arounds just to realize in the end the lady wanted me to grease the wheels with some baht. Which NY wife told her to <deleted> off is her own words. 

Less hassle to take the 4 hour bus to Krabi.

Seems like a stupid check. It’s all about foreigners buying land in their thai wife’s name. Problem is the land ownership is so strict for foreigners it leaves us open to be scammed where if married and you sell your house you get 50-50% 

 

what if they married the thai in a foreign country

So glad I moved my family to the UK no silly by-laws and whimsical hoops to jump through for the amusement of some petty bureaucrat here. We can visit our summer house in Spain if we start to get the winter blues. And visit Thailand for a few weeks before the fun starts to run out. So nice living in a democratic country with real rules and values. 

Well it's horses for courses.  I also moved my family to the UK but many prefer the life in S.E.A.  There are upsides and downsides to all places.

And what next ? Home visits by the police, with full impunity and no warrant, to see if the farang is providing to his wife ? ..which could lead to the cops scanning all your belongings, cash, valuables and asking you from where you got the money to purchase ?...then perhaps planting some Yaba in your house that would require to give in your car and half of your bank account to be free ?.....I myself find this amusing a ridiculous theory..but....in a corrupt society, sky is the limit to dishonesty, so better think twice before getting involved with all the legal hassle of marriage.....

How many Thai ladies have been 'saved' from marrying falang crooks so far?

Sounds like a interesting idea, every man who's getting married should see the results of his future wifes criminal record check.

No. Just bank account checks !

They effectively already do that for issuing certain visas.

The Thai authorities can't even track their own high profile criminals, so what makes them think they will be able to find any info about the average geezer wanting to get married !!!

As all clearly can see, you have absolutely no knowledge at all about how good they are at tracking.
