Story Of My Thai Citizenship Application

Recommended Posts

If you are married with Thai and Having OR for 5 years
You are ok with it dont
Since you are married with Thai too.
Everything gose smoothly

Dont worry anything

I'm not sure about that the only thing we have to provide extra is documents that we already have which is our permanent residency certificate an alien book.
 
No different than you providing marriage and birth certificates.
 
I'm not denying at all that the requirements are much harder for PR applicants than people married to Thais.

From oath to RG took about 4 months in 2017 for me. Don't worry about another visit to immigration. After RG I didn't report to immigration despite my 90 days falling then. I stressed to my firm that I was now Thai despite not having Thai ID yet. In fact the international school I worked for tried to reduce my benefits after becoming Thai. I took them to court & won. They then broke the court agreement so I took them to court again & won 😁

Be interesting to hear more on this and how they justified changing your benefits.  I assume you have since left that school.

Only going by what i read on the internet seems its most likely the same. 

 

I have a suspension that almost anyone that gets to the moi interview passes

I heard of a case in which a person married to a Thai citizen didn't pass the MOI interview. I was told by an official that there was a age gap of many decades between husband and wife, no kids, and he didn't speak Thai. I don't know what else may have happened at the MOI interview, as that is all I was told. Perhaps, it's rare, but I guess people can fail at MOI.

The case was 67 year old thai and guy was indian 43
Last year MOI stop SB to take these types of cases where age diff is too much .

I wonder if I would have succeeded with my current wife. There was only 3 years difference with my first wife, but there is 19 years difference with my second wife. Moot point by the way as I already have citizenship, but interesting nonetheless.

The rules are no different for Asians than anyone else. SB handles all.

Agreed but definitely a different office for thai men adopting foreign women than thai women adopting foreign men.

The International school I worked for employed foreign staff on one year fixed term contracts. A few years ago they inserted a clause stating that staff had to inform them if they received Thai citizenship or residency. I'd kept them informed since I first applied. When I became Thai they couldn't employ me on fixed term contracts (private schol act forbids this for Thai citizens). They tried to give me another fixed term contract which I pointed out broke the law. They then gave me a non fixed term contract but removed my bonus and flights as they said Thai staff didn't receive them. I asked the ministry of education to investigate and informed the school they were breaking employment law as you can't reduce an employee's benefits without their consent. Their justification was flawed as they tried to argue that Thai and international staff had set benefits. I proved this was incorrect as staff had negotiated different benefits. In the end I took them to the labour court for breach of contract as they didn't pay my flight and breaking employment law as they didn't pay me severance for my 10 years of employment. In court the judge sided with me and they had to pay plus interest. We signed an agreement which stated they wouldn't prevent me from getting a new job. They then gave me a terrible reference which implied it might be unsafe to hire me. I took them to court again and the judge stated the headmaster was a slanderer and awarded damages. I don't regret becoming a Thai citizen one bit. I only regret giving 10 years of effort to an unethical organisation.

Very interesting. It seems that the school got its just desserts and you got your reward for working with them for so long.
