Yes there would have been options for those visas. But im not willing to study, im not bragging or how to say in english but im from Finland, so education in here is not really any option.

Thai i learn with family everyday..

The Ed visa is simply an option used by many as a means to stay in Thailand. The vast majority of people using it do not do any study at all. The same for the Volunteer Visa - no one is really volunteering, the visa is just used as a loophole. 

 

That option is available to you.

Our government is super slow with everything, was apply documents 3weeks ago and still no answer.

Im waiting that "free to marry" doc, i dont know the english name for it.

OK. So you are not yet Married. The document is ‘Affirmation of Freedom to Marry’ and can be (should be) obtainable directly from the Embassy instantly (UK Embassy anyway, I’m not sure if the Finish Embassy is any different).

Did you Visit the Embassy for this document or apply by post ?

 

I’m not sure here (UbonJoe?) - IF you get the ‘Affirmation of Freedom to Marry’ then get it translated into Thai, then get that Translation approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs you can legally Marry. 

Then (I think) you can apply for a Non-Immigrant O (based on Marriage) - I’m not sure you can do this without having to leave Thailand - i.e. convert from a Tourist Visa to a Non-Immigrant O Visa within Country (and get 90 days).

But in other hand, going back gives me more income and have time to do all papers until borders open.

 

I wish you all good!

 

'my english is quite straightforward and can cause some missunderstood so dont take all so literally 555

Securing income back home is obviously the best long term solution to all of this, especially if you can’t currently meet the >400k Baht minimum saving requirement for a Non-Imm O extension. 

 

 

All of that said: There have been options to stay in country open to you.

It is only by sheer luck that I have >400k baht in my Bank account and I am not forced to leave the country.    I have always used the Thai Elite Visa. However, this was not valid for re-

These times are brutal for many.   Being away from family is obviously extremely tough.   Op - was there not an ‘agent option’ you could have gone with to secure your stay here in

Thais will adapt - like usual.

I always sort you have kind of a large family here - even if you wouldn't call them family.

Our embassy is too busy to give money for middle east. They wont give those documents.. need to order from Finland and then have someone to send it here, then they will stamp it in embassy.

"Best and happiest country in the world"

That marriage would not be recognized by immigration or a embassy.

The marriage has to be registered at a Amphoe for it to be accepted.

I spoke about this with my friend last winter, that we need to save before .... hit the fan, and therefor I was working hard the last year, little salery and saving up. Little I knew it was coming so soon. Just lucky I had all the paper ready when returning back in january after short trip back to home, to get my first long stay visa. 

 

Of course depends how old you are, but things that goes down, have to go up again, and before this chrisis I always said everything that goes up, have to go down, so you have the full cycle. Cheers

Sounds like you really made an effort to stay here long-term, and now it's paying off. Congratulations. I did the exact same thing, living very cheaply with my wife for some time in order to save enough money for the extension and to have enough in case something unexpected happened.

 

Sometimes you really have to think long-term and perhaps experience a bit of hardship in the moment in order to prepare for what might happen, instead of just riding along on what is basically work-arounds.

How many Thais are really interested in "real" democracy? And how often in real life do they or did you experience anything bad because Thailand is not a perfect democracy?

From experiencing Thais in cities and up country and comparing their happiness with many people in "the west" I am pretty sure many Thais are happier than the people "back home". Back home many people might be wealthier, but that doesn't make them happier. There is a reason why so many farangs live here in the so called 3rd world. And one reason are the mostly happy people.

Seriously?

Sometimes in extreme cases like this I try to help as much as possible... I did not promote anything in that message other than see if I could put in a good word for you.

But as they say, no good deed goes unpunished.

So if you get married whit Thai in your coundry that not valid in Thailand! Coz they take that married paper to Finland and register in there!? Priest married them here put paper work happen in Finland if you can't get your thai wife whit you! Man can marry thai woman here and wife dont need travel Finland! Man bring papers in to administrative court and you are leagaly married in Finland.
