hi there
my Thai girlfriend & i got married in Bangkok 3 months ago (October 2014)
I plan to return at the end of march were we will apply for the spouse settlement visa.

As yet my wife has not changed her surname to mine yet.
does she have to do this on her passport & id card or can she apply for the visa with her original surname?
thanks in advance
regards

She can apply in her maiden name and legally never has to change her surname to yours if she doesn't want to.

My Thai wife has her Thai documents in her maiden name and her UK documents in her married name.
