Interested in Thai nationality?
Trying to figure out how to stay in Thailand indefinitely? Sick of worrying about visas?
In 2008, amendments were made to Thai nationality law. These changes have allowed all spouses of Thai citizens to obtain citizenship without first needing to go through the permanent residence process. You could be eligible to apply for citizenship within as little as one to three years, depending on circumstances.
For foreign husbands married to Thai wives, please see this article “Thai citizenship for foreigners married to a Thai spouse” to see how you can apply for Thai citizenship.
For females married to a Thai husband, please see the following article: “Thai citizenship based on marriage to a Thai husband”.
If you aren’t married, but would like to commence the journey towards Thai citizenship, you’ll need to attain permanent residency first. A detailed guide on how you do this is available at our article here: “The ultimate guide to Thai permanent residency”.
