Hi, I am an American live in Combodia, I would like to marry to my German girlfriend. Can it be done in Thailand?

Sorry for late reply.

Yes, no problem. You have to get an affidavit from your embassy and she must do the same in Bangkok. After, you translate the affidavit in Thai and legalized at the ministry of foreign affairs.

Gays can’t get married in Thailand for now. There are small exceptions, but 2 Thais, 1 Thai and 1 foreigners and 2 foreigners CAN get married in Thailand.

You might have to register the Thai marriage in your country should it be requested. For some others, the marriage in Thailand is just as soon as a marriage in your country (like Canada).
