In all countries in the world you will get a passport or permanent residency allowing you to stay when you are married. So nothing to worry about after that.

 

Thailand is really the exception here.

 

 

If I understand this correctly, you can get permanents residency if you :

"

Thai Permanent Residency

  -You must have had a Thai non-immigrant visa for at least three years prior to the submission of your application. Holders of multiple NON-Immigrant visas can not apply. You must have 3 consecutive yearly extensions in order to qualify.

  -You must be a holder of a non-immigrant visa at the time of submitting your application.

  -You must be able to meet one of these categories to apply for PR status in Thailand:

Investment category (minimum 3 – 10 Mil. Baht investment in Thailand)

Working/ Business category

Support a family or Humanity Reasons category: In this category, you must have a relationship with a Thai citizen or an alien who already posses a residence permit as a husband or wife; father or mother; or a guardian of a Thai child under 20 years of age.

Expert / academic category

Other categories as determined by Thai Immigration"  

You can apply for Thai citizenship after holding a permanent resident status   for 10 years.

That list is not complete. There is a language test, there are quota, extremely high fees and some other things.

 

Thank you for that

I am not familiar with the process or interested, but the statement that you can't get permanent residency in Thailand is not correct.

I know I have read thread of posters wo have.

Married and working can skip and go directly for citizenship where none of the above is needed.

 

But even if not working, not much different than any other country, not too sure why you think it should be cheaper and easier here than anywhere else

Very much different from Switzerland (very easy - never seen Thai ladies with Swiss passport?), Norway,  Germany,  to name a few.

Lol rules getting enforced, laws getting stricter. Sad for those wanting to stay long term. But its pretty normal, Thailand is not so desperate anymore to just want to let anyone in.

 

Personally i hate it, i wanna stay forever on tourist visas. But it makes sense. In my country u can only stay for 3 months as a tourist. Other long term options are either being married to a citizen or work. Kinda the same like Thailand tho, but my country also accept refugees. In my country most people dont like immigrants. So i think Thailand is still very tolerant. As most westerners are just drunk old guys coming for the rentgirls, or smelly backpackers.

Do you think Thais like immigrants???

Depends on which Thai. Some dont think anything, some like immigrants, some dont. Generally i think they have a bad attitude towards Khmr, and Burmese, and Chinese. They also think we westerners are dirty, rude, and degenerate.

I think i typed "most westerners" didnt include myself yet. The fact that u had to respond in such obvious sarcastic way, makes me suspect you in falling in one of those categories. I suspect the first one. The old drunk with prostitutes.
