Residency certificate CW Bangkok

Recommended Posts

I need a residency certificate from CW Bangkok. Do they do them same day or mail to you?  If mail how long does it take to get it?  Anyone done this in at CW recently?  thanks

They mail it to you, EMS.  Takes around 2 weeks.

 

You need to be doing 90 day reporting with them and have done a recent report (i.e. not been out of the country in the last few months.)

Thank you.  I rarely do 90 day reports but did one last month.

I returned to Thailand early November 2018 and want to go next week to CW for a residence certificate.  Last 90 day report was June.  Are you saying I can’t get a certificate? What if I show my lease which has continued throughout?   And recent utility bill?

I don't wish to sidetrack op, but I also need advice. I need residency certificate for car licence. My issue is even though living here several years (retirement extension), I have never done a 90 day report as I fly out every couple of weeks. I have a lease. What else is needed. Thankyou

I'm not expert, but if you haven't been doing your 90 day reporting, then I believe you need to get your certificate from your embassy.  (It's actually an affirmation of residency.  Basically you stating that you live somewhere, and the embassy taking a hefty fee for putting that on paper.)

Oxx thanks. To be clear have you tried getting a certificate before and were turned down for lack of a recent 90 day report or is that just what you’ve heard through the grapevine?   I’m trying to decide whether to chance it or go the embassy route.

I was in a similar situation where it had been 4 months since my last 90 day report following a trip out of Thailand.  There was a lot of humming and hawing as to whether I could get the certificate or not.  It was clearly, in the CW immigration official's eyes, a borderline case.  Eventually I did get it.  You could try with 7 months since your last report and you might get lucky, you might not.  (I suspect not, but I'm no expert.)

Of course it makes no sense.  There’s nothing more reliable for them in a 90 day report than in the certificate application you hand them. Both state your address and have nothing but your own signature to attest to their truth.  But TOT 🙂

I have done my driver license at the Mo-Chit Departement, and I was there only with my Passport, foreign driver license and the tambien baan (yellow book). This was enough to make the driver license about 1 year ago. Even there was a lot of if this will work or not at the desk.. but at the end I became it.

So I would suggest you call or even try to go to the Departement where you obtain your driver license and check what is really needed!

How does that work? Does the embassy have fill-in-the-blanks Certificates of Residency? Or do I just type something up freehand, like:" I certify that I live at address such and such."? Then have them certify my signature.

The US embassy had one before that was a fill the blanks affidavit but I cannot find it now. They only have a blank affidavit now.
