Indians and the rest came from Nigeria, Nepal, Cameroon and IranI was going too make a remark about the ethnic origins of the miscreants, but when I think about it, I know in my area of Udon thani, there are several Germans who should no better, in the same category.
There may be other nationalities but I only know of Germans.

I'm guessing this issue will turn into a club with which Immigration uses to beat anyone they choose. The baseless treatment of anyone under 50 as a common criminal will take on new form. Watch.

I got my marriage visa yesterday at Vientiane , I have been stressing over it for the last 2 years, trying to work out if I need a translation or some other pretense, I made the mistake of getting married in NZ and while it was correct ceremony the Thais have refused to give me the visa, although if I went to Savanakhet and paid 5000 bt the problem resoled its self.
But this time I paid an agent to do it for me, coincidently about Bt5000, same paperwork, and this time the coveted marriage visa was granted.:los:
now all I have to do is get the marriage extension, stupid photos, testimony from a witness all that even though we have been legally married for 10 yrs. stuff them next time I will get a retirement visa, move my Mai Noi in and stuff the visa.:hello:

New bride, I don't think so Norts 3 times married is enough for any one, even I realize I have a problem with relationships, I think I am quite normal :rolleyes:but just don't take kindly to being told what to do.
