Foreigners cannot buy land in Thailand. Even if you have been married to a Thai and lived in Thailand for decades you cannot even buy 1 rai ( 1600 SQM ) of land with a house on it.
You either have to buy it in your Thai partners name or buy a condo/apartment.
I personally find this is racial discrimination however I would like to learn more about why the government has set this policy. It's not like we can take it back home to AUS when we leave, it will always remain in Thailand.
When I ask this question to Thais who have married foreigners and live together in Thailand, this is the response :
It is what it is. I don't understand those who are really against the rules that apply here but still insist on sticking it out and complaining. If I was unhappy about the situation, I would have to find somewhere else to settle.
No worries. Maybe Thailand is not the place for you. I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for somewhere. Cheers
