    Unfortunately No, Im sat here right now waiting for the post and hoping that brings good news!

    Its a real catch 22. We either wait and accept that i may loose the job but at least mrs and eldest have the ILR, or we wait and see if it turns up soon. Prob is even if we cancel today it takes 20+ working days to return passports etc......

    No hair left ive pulled out so much.

    Excellent so you VB and me all have kids around the same age. I think we might have to persuade the wives that they need to spend a great deal of time together. Mainly in the Eve's so we can all just nip out for a bear or two!

    I hope goes well for you Navydoubts.
    I have plans to marry a Lao girl myself, have talked with her and her family but none of what you speak of was mentioned. Trying to get any information from my girl is nigh on impossible!!.
    I will have to speak with the Lao embassy soon.
    Thank god for this forum.

American citizens may obtain information about these requirements from the U.S. Embassy in Vientiane. The Lao Government will not issue a marriage certificate unless the correct procedures are followed.

    We never did any of this as we married in the UK. Does that mean we are not leagally married in Laos??? We havent followed the Laos family law.

    did you finish ?? what the laos embassy provide u after registered ?

    (Posting if he ever comes back [shame] or others have info)

    Got a Laotian girlfriend. Well had a marriage ceremony in Thailand, Isaan.
    Want to bring her and 4 yearr old daughter to UK to settle for citizenship.
    Read about the difficulties and complex Laos bureaucracy for getting married there.
    Not to mention their OTT laws and hefty fines targetting foreigners.
    I intend to try getting the affirmation to marry from a Laos embassy and marry in Bangkok under Thai law.
    If no joy will get a Fiancee VISA for UK. Get married in UK.

    But how did you get on registering your marriage from UK in Laos?
    Did an embassy just accept it?

    This is an exaggeration, there are no ott laws targeting foreigners unless you do something particularly stupid...

    We got married in the UK, we did not get married here in Laos. Wherever we have stayed we have needed to give our marriage certificate to the village chief (UK Marriage certificate) And it has been accepted with no questions what so ever! The village chiefs in the three different places we have lived so far have all said that all they wanted to check is that we are married, on paper you are supposed to be married in Laos on paper but in practice then it appears that so long as you are married they don't mind.
