The Social Development and Human Security Ministry is offering a free course to help Thai women cope with the highs and lows of interracial marriage and avoid potential scams or falling victim to human trafficking when moving abroad.
As Thai society becomes more accepting of interracial marriages, some women view them as a way to better their economic status, the ministry says.
"Our course will teach women how to conduct themselves, about the laws of their destination country, and how to prepare before going," said senior ministry official Patcharee Arayakul.
