Udon Thani: 193 foreigners face visa revocation for faking marriage with Thai women

Recommended Posts

I think the word you could have used instead of tact, should have been efficient or honest

ED visa seems easier to get with less requirements than a marriage visa. What am i missing?

ED visas do expire. Marriage Visas can go on a long time

In LOS, distinction between what is Jing and what is Mae Jing is always problemmatic.

Let us begin with the current regime! :)

At least no Greeks involved this time......................

Do you think they are coming to Khon Kaen or am I safe for the moment?

Don't count your chickens Costas. You're only 130 K's away but seeing no one travels at the speed of light here, I think you might be safe for quite some time.

Seems like a lot of trouble to just stay in Thailand. Why not just get an ED visa?

They're obviously not real bright as they have been easily detected so can you imagine how they would go with the Ed visa?

Their lack of intelligence. They would require some grey matter to apply for that.

all Visas expire at some point. You are probably referring to an Extension of Stay. You can extend your permission to stay as long as you apply timely and meet requirements.

Taking an educated guess, I would say that these foreigners have intentions of using their bogus wives as Thai upfront names perhaps to acquire land, real estate and businesses or to get them some sorts of footholds in the country, year by year, which is not possible to do on an education visa.

I would bet that these cases are only the tip of the iceberg, and that marriages of convenience are probably rampant in Thailand.

Yep, that was my thought as well, a little bit more than just getting a visa.

Now, it will be interesting to see what happens to the 193 if their visas are revoked, or more importantly to their assets that they have accumulated.

Would also be interesting to see how long the bans will be; if the visas are proved to have been obtained by fraudulent means, does that mean they are overstay cases?

Good time for the new rules on overstay to become law if that is the case IMHO.....................wink.png

Yep, the immigration lady in question should only have provided the ID details of the fugly ones and not the pretty ones for the marriage scams.

While not foolproof, it would lengthen to odds of one of them showing up to get legally married......................wink.png

And I assume you consider this to be a relatively new scam, as in easily detected? Sorry, this has been going on for decades in one guise or another.

I'm married whats the cheapest I can get a marriage visa on my own preferably with no agent? I'm from the UK not Nigeria.

You'd do better asking that question in the Visa Forum after reading the stickies. It's HERE
