Buying a Condo in Thailand

Buying a Condo in Thailand

The laws in Thailand restrict non-citizens of Thailand from owning land. However, visitors and business people who wish to own a home can buy a condominium or similar smaller properties. According to Thai law, foreign nationals cannot hold more than 49% of shares in any Thai company that owns freehold land. This is also a way to prevent foreigners from owning the land through a company or other business. Thailand is a tropical paradise full of beaches and rain forests. Living here is like being on vacation all year! Speak to a property lawyer in Samui first before signing any property or rental agreements when in Thailand.

Getting Married in Thailand

To marry in Thailand, you have to first get into Thailand with a regular visitor’s visa or a Business Visa. You can also arrive with a VOA (Visa on Arrival) at the airport which gives you 30 days access to Thailand. Once there, you will have to find the rules and regulations of your own country (go to your own embassy in Bangkok) and prepare the paperwork to get a “freedom to marry” certificate stating that you have no prior obligations in your country.
