    Default Passport

    Hi

    A Portuguese friend has asked me if I could clarify the following.

    He want to travel to Thailand from the UK on 1st Oct 2016 and return on the 31st Oct 2016 but his passport expires on the 7th May 2017.

    He is not sure if his passport need to be Valid for 6 month or 1 year when he travels for this trip?

    I said his passport will still be valid for 6 months when he has return so should be OK but would hate to give him the wrong advice.

    Many Thanks

    Re: English passport
    A friend of mine wanted to know, why do most Thai people. After 10 years wants to apply for a English passport.
    He thinks that when she gets her passport, then she will file for a divorce.
    I said that I will ask the question. So here it is

    I'm not sure what relevancy 10 years has. some got their passport long before then and some much later. If he really thinks his wife will leave him once she get's her British passport then it sounds to me that his marriage might not be that strong.

    My advice here has always been the same, Thai spouses should apply for ILR and nationality as soon as they are time (and language/LitUK) qualified. The eligibility requirements are routinely made more difficult and the cost of doing so will only get higher.

    As we were married and we intended to settle in the UK it made sense for wife to get British citizenship at the earliest opportunity. It seems to always increase in expense and also there was NO reason not to obtain it. After citizenship we then got the British passport, made it then possible to use the EU freedom of movement for travel in the EU, so could go to Paris, Spain, Canary Isles etc at short notice and without any hassle that Schengen visa etc causes. The Thai passport is also valid for only 5 years and so needs renewing more frequently, we then get this done in Thailand rather than having to fiddle around doing it in the UK.

    I think that if worrying about getting a divorce on receipt of citizenship it doesn't bode well for the relationship.
