    Changes to marriage visa

    Went to immigration to re-new our marriage visa but to do this you now need pictures of your house plus a map of where it is. As my wife makes the money she also has to have a copy of her company's portfolio. Pretty sure they will be taking our fingerprints next time.

    So they have extended my stay for 2 months for 1900 baht then we have to go through teh whole process again and hope they don't chnge things again in the next 2 months.
    -----
    Forgot to add, we also need.
    Pics of wedding, pics of me and wife with my family, pics of me and my wife with her family, pics of me at university, pics of university building, letter from university, receipt from university for studies, letter from my wifes company about salary + the questions about your life together.
    -----
    In short then even though i'm not sure anyone's reading this, i'm looking forward to finishing my degree and getting a WP then i won't have to put up with this year after year. I also heard that the MOE now is asking for degrees in English to teach English so i've changed my major to BA English to be on the safe side.

    Sound like a load of shit to me. No government could possibly need all of those materials. Obviously they just like being pricks to white devils who are romping "their" women.

    If that's the case, will they then require video proof that the marriage has been consumated?

    Actually mate if I was you I'd not use the WP to extend the Visa rather stick to what you're on (and the hassle that goes with it) and float the WP on top...otherwise.....leave the job and you got 7 days to leave and start ALL OVER AGAIN!!!

    As always with Thai Immi it's on the day and down to the officer you have to deal with. This year was the first time for extending my visa on the strength of my marriage so I took some pics with me and the immi bloke just glanced in the envelope they were in, didn't take any out and handed the pack back to me.
    It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no Interior Minister of Thailand's son.

    the map doesn't strike me as absurd as the request for wedding photos......wouldn't a wedding certificate be sufficient? who cares what was served for dinner?

    Davey G, I have read the same requirements are needed on either another thread here, or on the Thai Visa site. The map is so the friendly MoI guys can pay a visit if they choose to make sure you really DO live there with your wife. Plus I read that the pics must be of every room in your home, with you and your wife in each pic ( I think just smiling, rather than consumating!) Whem my wife and I arrive in January, I can't wait to see what our requirements will be!

    Seems like an invasion of privacy and my girlfriend got a visa for the UK easily, got 6 months without doing anything really =/
    Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
