Marriage laws

If a Thai marries an American and resides in America, what does she need to do in terms of her ID and house registration information? What are the visa requirements for an American married to a Thai?

Thai nationals living abroad should keep their ID card and house registration in a safe place. When they return to Thailand, these documents will be required if they need to have dealings with any Thai government department or bank. The visa application procedure for foreigners with a Thai spouse is the same as anyone else. The marriage certificate will be considered with a visa application, but does not guarantee that a visa will be granted.
