Many M’sians flocking to Thailand for marriage


YALA (Thailand): About 250 to 300 couples from Malaysia come here to confirm their marriage documents at the Consulate General of Malaysia every month after getting married in Thailand.

The Malaysian Consul-General in Songkhla, Ahmad Fahmi Ahmad Sarkawi, said the couples are those who get married in Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala, Satun or Songkhla.

“There are also those who get married in Bangkok but come to the Consulate General office here to get a confirmation of their marriage documents,” he told reporters after the opening of the 9th Melayu Day here yesterday.

Also present were the Justice Minister of Thailand Tawee Sodsong, Yala Governor Ampon Pongsuwan, Consul-General of Indonesia Suargana Pringganu and Mayor of Yala, Pongsak Yingchoncharoen.

Ahmad Fahmi said it is important for Malaysian couples to confirm their marriage documents at the consulate to ensure they’re valid and to avoid being conned by marriage syndicates, Bernama reported.

He said with the documents confirmed by the Consulate General of Malaysia, the couple can register their marriage in Malaysia.
