Expatriates might be interested to learn that there are calls to review Thailand's foreign ownership guidelines on property.
At the moment, foreign buyers are only able to have a 30-year registered lease.
However, the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand is lobbying along with real estate consultants for this to be increased to 60 years.
But Property Wire reported that this still falls short of the 99-year lease on offer to foreign buyers in neighbouring countries.
A recent report from CB Richard Ellis noted that foreign property buyers could offer a significant contribution to the wider Thai economy "without any material risk to issues of sovereignty or adversely affecting social or economic conditions".
But before moving to Thailand, expatriates might want to think about what things to consider when relocating abroad.
Expatriate health insurance is certainly one item on the list that would offer peace of mind.
