to marry a laos lady!
23rd Mar, 2010 at 11:12pm
 
hi! can you help me please. i have just returned to england after two weeks in laos. i have met a very nice straight laos lady and we have become married at her parents home (approved by the headman) but we did not register officially. she wants to come to england. we visited the usa embasssy in ventianne (they deal with all uk visa requests) she applied for a visitor visa which was declined. i realise that we will have to register the marrige officially and then she can apply again. can you tell me what can i do to speed up the application. i have been warned that it could take a year and cost 2000$ and being treated as a cash machine. should i give up? i am sending her 20,000 bahts a month to help her family? am i crazy? please be honest!

I guess it's true what they say, " a sucker is born every day ".
Actually I like this one, " a fool and his money are soon parted ".
This is as honest as I can be, without laughing, haha.

Just cause they are poor, doesn't mean they aren't scandalous.
By the way, just out of curiosity, do you own a BMW?

You can't really speed the process...you just have to wait and be patient.  Did you really know the girl for 2 weeks?  If this is the case you are screwed.  You jumped the gun way too soon bud.  I can guarantee you if you go through with this, the odds of her leaving you is 99% give or take 1-2  years.  Otherwise, give up your citizenship and remain in Laos.  Keep her there, and the marriage could last a lifetime.   Smiley
It's your call, there's still that 1% that she'll remain loyal to you for the rest of your life.  Be sure to keep me and everyone posted after 1-2 years okay?

Azzuccar, $2000 USD is actually not bad on average. Many foreigners pay $3,500 USD and more to run the marriage paperwork, and sometimes it takes 6 months.

But sending 20,000 baht ($590 USD) a month to help her family is definately crazy like Pankeo said. Most people earn 3,000 - 5,000 baht per month in Laos just to give you some information.

I agree with Jackspade, leave her there and have a baby for a few years before get her to US, you might increase your odd to 20%, of course there is always exceptions, always someone win lotto, howcome never me or someone that I knew win ?
It's not love, it's the hormone that does the trick. Good luck !

c'mon guys.. give the man a break!!! Smiley he probably had the best time of his life in that 2 weeks span.  she must of treat him like a king... i guess when you're in love and happy, money is no object..  $600 per month is a lot of $$$.. 

technically.. you can't get marry cause they do not give you a marriage license .. they call it engagement party..

as for getting her visa approve..  i've heard all kind of stories, some took only a month and some a year or two.. plus spending so much $$$ on pushing them papers around..   things haven't change that much in laos, if you push those papers along with some cash.. most likely your documents will get approve faster.

good luck Azzuccar!!!
