In order to keep the forum clear, friendly and useful, we invite you to follow these guidelines. They have been made to help you in using the forum.


> Before writing, we invite you to have a look at the previous threads to make sure your topic wasn't already covered.

> When starting a new thread, select its title wisely: the clearer it is, the more answers you will receive.

> Ask one question at a time: it would be easier for the other members to answer. Of course, you can post other questions later.

>Do not forget to introduce yourself: it will help to give you a personalized answer and it will be much more pleasant.

> Please respect the topic categories: avoid going off-topic and feel free to create a new thread to talk about a new topic.

> Avoid posting personal details, such as your phone number, email address or Skype contact, on a public forum. The team will remove these details for your safety.

> For any question related to the use of the website or for a technical problem, please use our contact form.


For better understanding and interaction with the other members, we invite you to post your messages in English. If you want to post in French, we invite you to participate on the Thailand French speaking forum; for your posts in Spanish, kindly use the Thailand Hispanic forum and the Thailand Italian speaking forum for your posts in Italian.

Make sure to write correctly and clearly on the forum so that everyone can understand: avoid cap locks and SMS language.


If you want to post a job offer or if you are looking for a job, please post on the Thailand Jobs section.

The forum is not aimed at helping you to promote your company and products. If your thread is of a commercial nature, please use the dedicated sections: we invite you to register in the Thailand Business directory or to have a look at our Advertising page.

The forum can't be used to promote external groups or organizations. Should you want to organize gatherings/activities with the other members, kindly get in touch with us: we would be pleased to help you.

The entire concept of this forum is to promote the free exchange of information and ideas. Therefore, everyone has a fundamental right to form and express their own opinions, provided that they comply with the terms of use of the website. However, it is not acceptable to criticize or abuse another member in any way for simply expressing their opinion or making a personal observation. If you find the opinion expressed offensive you should not take matters into your own hands nor should you make any abusive comments: please use the Report button so that we manage the issue.
The forum is dedicated to expat related matters. Topics related to politics or religion won't be accepted.

The moderation team reserves the right to intervene if necessary.


Please keep in mind that is not a dating or matchmaking service. Do not post forum topics either seeking or offering a romantic relationship.


Any postings deemed to be abusive, offensive or obscene will be immediately removed. If you find a posting offensive or inappropriate please report it by clicking on the Report button which appears at the bottom right hand corner of the posting. To know more about our criteria, we invite you to have a look at our Terms and Conditions.

The forum code of conduct may be subject to changes. We invite you to check it regularly.

Private messaging I think should be addressed also, in co-relation at already-made and answered topics.

i was just asking for a link to a thread on visas that covers every possible visum but you send me here ? not very helpful, so in fact its like figure it out yourself ? rtfm ?

Hello ixs,

In fact you were given two links, this one for you to understand the code of conduct on the Thailand forum and the other one to give you all the necessary information about visas.

Hope the other link will work best for you.



sorry for that, you're right, i just cant seem to find any info on how to get a permanent residence as in nationalisation or passport

(Moderated: no copy/paste on the forum pls)

hi. The reason you can not find any Information about becoming a Thai citizen is simply because You Can not become one unless you were born in Thailand or have  a Thai parent!  Except in very rare circumstances that require long term stay in Thailand and lots of money! only about 50 people per year are accepted, and there is a rigorous interview process in Thai!

Yes...we in the west are so used to taking people from everywhere else we assume they will be excited to take us as well......of course they aren't. In fact it seems nobody really is...
