Marriage in Thailand - legal in UK


Jai Yen
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi, looking for some help or advice.

 

I'm getting married in Feb 2011 to my long term tgf. She has UK citizenship, passport etc. so not needing visa.

 

But if we are getting married in Thailand how do we go about getting the marriage recognised as legal in the UK?

 

I've heard that we have to go to the UK embassy in Bangkok then onto a registrar to do the paperwork. Seems it would take a couple of days sitting around in offices and would cost around 15,000 baht, not really how i'd like to spend my time on holiday.

 

I thinking it might be a lot easier and quicker to have ceremony in Thailand then register marriage in UK later.

 

Any advice would be very appreciated, thanks.

I'm thinking that might be easier, but was hoping to have everything done while over in los, paperwork ceremony etc. just makes it a little more special :)

This is a really naive question. But. If someone has been separated in the UK for longer than 7 years, but not divorced, can he marry a Thai Girl?

And if so, what happens when he takes her back to England? Could a civil ceremony still be had if she doesnt have Citizenship?

The OP said the girl is a UK citizen.

A civil ceremony is legally approved so I think that would count as bigamy :Circle_Sharks:

Did you need to go to both embassy and registrar for yours? If I can ask how much did this cost for paperwork or did you use an agent? Thanks.

A marriage in thailand is legal in the vast majority of countries in the world, including UK.In fact it would not be legal to marry again in UK.You do not need to register anywhere in UK,only need the translation of marriage certificates from thailand to do anything.

I did mine over 3 days,Tota[ cost about 4000bt,Is quite easy if your wife is on the ball spent most time waiting for paper work.

1st day embassy get letter single status

2nd day Ministry of foreign affairs

3rd day Amphur sign wedding papers (should have 2 witness but they tend to over look this)

Good Luck

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
