Robert Kronberg, a high-profile Danish resident in Thailand since June 2002, has decided to put his current business in Thailand on hold and move to Denmark at least for the coming three months with his wife Ploypailin and son Frederik.
Robert Kronberg and Khun Ploy applied for visa to Denmark on Thursday 11 December 2014 and the same day, Frederik was naturalized and received a temporary passport while a “real” passport is being prepared. According to Robert Kronberg, the family holds tickets for departure on 19 December 2014, but the date may be postponed if the visa for Khun Ploy is delayed.
Piro Consulting, Robert Kronberg and Khun Ploy’s business, has been through turbulent times recently. A few month ago, he and his company was the target of a social media campaign to discredit his visa service business. His other business as a local partner for companies wishing to establish a business in Thailand has suffered since the financial crisis in Europe.
On Saturday, Robert Kronberg took down the website www.piroconsulting.com

In April 2012, Scandinavian Society Siam elected him Chairman and in 2013 he was reelected to the post until he stepped down in April 2013.
