  1. I don’t think they care about your high school diploma. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  2. If you are an applicant who has to sing, I’d recommend you also know the meaning of the songs line by line and be able to explain it in Thai. They asked me the meaning of a couple lines of the Royal Anthem.
  3. Yes, for anyone who might still be confused about this issue, becoming a naturalized Thai citizen does not actually change your race. Thank you for the reminder.
  4. You can have dual citizenship, but it is on a “don’t ask don’t tell” basis. You must never use your original citizenship for anything in Thailand. You can vote like any other Thai citizen starting five years after naturalization. You cannot stand for public office, but I don’t know about joining a political party. I believe it would not be a problem as long as you did not stand for election, but I can’t think of any good reason you’d want to get involved with politics. Being a Thai citizen gives a very satisfying feeling of security and freedom! Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  5. There is no answer to that question. Some have gotten it in about three years (like me); others are still waiting after seven. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  6. It is required to state an intention to renounce...not actually renounce. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  7. Oh, and no wife! Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  8. No gifts, no money, and no blood-sucking lawyers! Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  9. It's my understanding that the RTG is under the PM's office, and that announcements have to be signed off on by the PM or a deputy PM in order to be published. My own announcement was signed off on by the loathsome Suthep, so I guess he was good for something. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect

  11. I don't think the Gazette has a mind of its own in this regard. It simply prints whatever is signed off on and forwarded for publication by the Prime Minister's office. Sometimes the announcement is one or two names (like in my case), or a handful of names; other times, like last week, it's a long list of names. Don't get discouraged; it could come any time.

  12. You do, however need to go to immigration with your new documents to return/cancel your PR documents (if you are PR) and have them update your status in their system. It will be the last time you will ever have to set foot in that place...and it will feel fantastic! Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  13. No, you are now a Thai citizen. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  14. You must be one of the 100+ announced yesterday. Congratulations, and well done! http://www.ratchakitcha.soc.go.th/DATA/PDF/2560/E/223/14.PDF Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  15. Yes, correct. A valid Schengen visa works like this for many non-Schengen countries (Croatia, Montenegro, etc) And a valid US visa works for places like Mexico, Guatemala, etc. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
