    I look forward to the day that JK has passed her CT and becomes an Australian....... i wonder if it will change her in any way, as in how she feels about this country....

    Have you done you CT yet Dao, did it make you feel any different ? Less Thai and more Australian maybe

    Can you talk more about this Dao. I know travel is easier, and therefore more choice. Anything else?

    Also, by becoming an Aussie, do you give up any rights in Thailand e.g. property ownership?

    I,m assuming you would leave OZ and enter Thailand on your Thai passport.
    Then leave Thailand and enter Oz on the Oz passport?

    I think it makes it easier for get a good job. Go to school with HECs. Oh and big one divorce husband and go on centrelink 5555555555 Joking ok


    If something go wrong in our life can get a small pension and hospital. But we have insurance for this just now.

    Right of property ownership in Thailand I not make sure some people tell me cannot other say can. But I go to Thailand on Thai passport so they never would know I think. Condo is in share name with jonty. Farm in my name the rest I put in Mum name. If we are rich this will go to my brother when she die because he will take care of her with his wife when brother gets married.

    Just thinking about difference between a permanent resident and an oz citizen.

    Found a good site which summarises it well:

    http://www.differencebetween.com

    Main benefit is travel freedom, and ability to work in the public sector (benefit?!)

    You work your butt off for years, jump through all the hoops they want you to, and pay a great deal of money to the government in order to become a "Resident" of Australia. Why would you do that, only to be back to square one if you leave the country and stay away a bit too long?
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    Downside is the risk of your Thai partner not being able to hold property in LOS, and also may stop you from leveraging your partners Thai citizenship to stay their long term in the future.

    Not sure that citizenship would always be the best choice.

    I'm a bit unclear on this as I know Thai Aussie citizens that own property.... I don't think they're dual citizens!
    I know this was raised in another thread and I don't think anyone was able to give a clear answer!

    Do you really think there is a downside to TG going for Aussie citizenship? Maybe mum could "Hold" all the property you want over there, while she earns a shedload of money in Oz and then repatriates it all. When you are ready to jump ship together, just have her renounce Aussie citizenship. What are Thai Authorities going to do? Turn your TG back on the next plane to Oz? Just askin....

    That works if you live in Oz and retire in LOS. However, if you are a nomad, and back and forth then may not always be the best strategy for all. Just sayin...

    My guess is that they don't currently have the systems capability to know. 20 years time they will, unless the country doesn't advance which may be a bigger problem. However, the rules will also be different I expect.

    Don't ever under-estimate the Thai Immi and Police computer systems.
    Everything is referenced back to the Amphur and the original Tabien Baan - but that is mainly an identification issue with unregistered parents/children and dates of birth.
    However you can go into Patong Police station and get a record of a marriage and divorce from 15 years ago - in Nakhon Nowhere - from their computer with the correct ID.
    I have seen this.

    Thailand produces a huge % of the world's hard discs etc - do you really think no-one knows how to use them? 555!

    AFAIK Thailand doesn't recognize dual citizenship for Thais.
    But, if a Thai has dual citizenship, they use their Thai citizenship, passport and all their Thai rights while in Thailand and their Farang citizenship, passport and OZ rights while in OZ.

    E.G. My ex was a Canadian, born in the U.S.of A., and became a Naturalized Australian.
    So she had three passports ...

    Yes mum can hold. But problem if not can trust the family or mum not strong.

    Other reason. Much easier to buy house and land here not have to get approval. The bank give you money easier if you citizen someone tell me. Just more choice for easy.

    2 year ago Jonty change everything to my name in Australia because I not get much money for a job. Some thing for tax and if he go bankrupt or die. Not sure I understand everything I just trust him for do.

    if things go very very bad and even I go back to live in Thailand. I can always come back easy. Can visit my family in England easy etc.
