    MOI send verification of citizenship to the khet listed on your yellow book...so if you show up at a different khet, they will have no verification and unable to process your ID. Perhaps others have found a way around this, but I was told this was the process. It took 2 visits to get my ID. First day I was transferred to the blue book and told to come back about 3 days later. I think the guy in charge of the ID section was out of town and the others were afraid to proceed without his verification. 

    Thanks, very helpful. 

    I assume I don't need to take my wife with me but just the house master. 

    Taking.my wife would be inconvenient, but a few days trip to Bangkok is ok for me.

    I was told that you cannot. You have to go to khet listed in your yellow book and be transfered to the blue at the same address...then afterwards, you can go to your real khet and have yourself transfered from blue of old khet to new khet. That's what I was told had to be done and is what I did. 

    Interesting, thanks. Did the khet tell you this?

    Did you get moved to the blue book and get the ID the same day?

    I was able to get the documents from SB within 8 days , as for the Khet they gave me an appointment within 3 days , i guess honestly speaking we live in a country where knowing people can help speed up things if possible which in this case did help a bit😁 however i got my ID, updated tabien ban and my passport all with me within 2 and half weeks of having my name in the RG

    As I live outside Bangkok, I might move the house book to my hometown. 


    Did you have to visit the khet to make an appointment, or just call?

    Obviously things must have changed since my interview. When I entered the room with my son, I was simply asked to introduce myself. I proceeded to do the same and continued for what seemed to be an hour but was probably 4 or 5 minutes. I recall only being asked one question during the whole interview. 

    They give the information, place of work, salary, number of points, before you enter the room.

    Just a quick update , Already got my ID in hand, managed to get the documents for SB and the Khet luckily didn't give me too much trouble 👍 however this is not the usual case, the papers at SB 99% of the time take 2 weeks to complete and the Khet usually gives appointments around 9-14 days from when you submit your papers to make an ID card.


    Good luck to everyone else in process 


    So you mean that your name was on the royal Gazette you had to wait 2 weeks to get the papers from SB?

    For instance, it’s not illegal for a Thai citizen to obtain US citizenship but it is not allowed or a grey area for The Thai government.  

     Correct, there are too many high ranking govt officials with dual citizenship to make any law. 


    For me, the grey area is the wording. I got a letter from the UK embassy saying I intend to renounce my UK citizenship . However, the Consul assures me they don't  care and  the Thais dont either.

    One thing that strikes me is the   why buy a house here? when you die your wife will get it.

    Why would you not want your wife to get the house? Why get married?

    I had a friend who had a prenuptial. When he got divorced, he got half the estate. However, he did in suspicious circumstances a few months after the settlement.  

    We got a mortgage, which is the same as renting a similar house. This should be paid off in 2 years. 

    My children or grandchildren should eventually inherit everything.

    None of it really matters to us as we plan to move to uk in the next 12 months or so. Then it will most likely be 6/6 or 9/3 months-ish UK/TH after that. I was only asking about a point of Thai law on wife dying before husband.


    What would happen if my wife dies before me, after I become a Naturalized Thai?

    Would I inherit all her land, if there is no will?

    I plan to buy land in a year or so, do I need my wife's  signature?


    Maybe I will transfer some of the land to my name as I would hate her sister to be able to claim for it.
