Wikrom Layerhi the Indian national has been arrested accused of acting as a broker for arranging Thai ladies to register forged marriages with Indian citizens. This was revealed by Technology Crime Suppression Centre Deputy Head and Immigration Bureau Chief Lt. Gen. Surachate Hakpal.

Filing application for Thailand PR is a perplexing process. Only a few thousand people are offered PR annually by Thailand.
The Immigration Department in Thailand has a quota for all immigrants applying for Residence Visas. Just 100 individuals per nationality can apply and sometimes application can be submitted in only 3 months of the year. PR is mandatory for those who intend to apply for Citizenship of Thailand, as quoted by the Khaleej Times.
Applicants of Thailand PR must have held a non-immigrant Visa constantly for minimum 3 years.
