Yes I do have PR, but people that own a condo also have the blue book. The blue book is for the owner of the building, house or condo. It does not belong to a particular person. When you sell the house or condo the blue book is transferred to the new owner. Daytrader99 above must own his own condo and therefore has the legal ownership blue house registration book. If you read the forum on Thai visas etc you will find this information clearly written there. 

Afaik if you own a condo you are listed in the blue book as house master but not as resident. To get a pink ID card you have to be listed as resident. The only way to be listed as resident without PR is in yellow book. So you either need to have PR or a yellow book to get the pink ID card

Yes, I have a blue book for my condo, its blank, I cant go in it and no Thais live here. I went and got a yellow book, i am house master in the yellow book, then got a ID card.

I would still make the statement that you cannot get Pink ID using blue book, unless of course you have PR. Anyone with PR would already know that and wouldn't be asking, how do I get ID.

If you own a condo the blue book is blank.

Beg to differ. if one owns a condo and lives there, is a long-term resident, has a blue book with their name in it, the authorities will issue one with an ID card. As your blue book is blank it is meaningless. You don't live there at all. You live elsewhere, hence the yellow book.

The statement is a lost in translation thing, it basically says (or means) not transferable, if you move to another province you get another ID from that province.

 

Yes I understand that, I was referring to using the card at airline check-in and at the departure gate. I've had refusal to accept it in both scenarios, and on each occasion it was after the clerk read the back of the card.

 

In these scenarios not practical to go and get the card reissued in another province and in any case I don't want it reissued in another province.

Michael, did you stay in the same tambon when you moved house. I seem to remember when I acquired my yellow book a few years ago I was advised ( by whom I can’t remember) that if one remains in the same tambon then renewing the yellow book is not essential????

 

I'm assuming you mean the tabien baan book (household registration book).

 

You mentioned 'then renewing the yellow book is not essential' and i'm assuming you mean the tabien baan book (household registration book).

 

Unless there has been a major change in the procedures there is no 'renewal' of this book (any tabien baan book).

 

But what is needed is to add / delete the names in the book as people become domiciled / move out to be domiciled elsewhere.

 

Add / remove is a very simple procedure, no questions asked if the documents you provide are in order, 5 to 10 minutes and the last time we added a name (the birth of my Thai granddaughter) the fee was 20Baht. (From my direct experience the fee is the same for Thai citizens and non-Thai citizens and for PR holders - 20Baht).

Somebody wrote before that the name on the card is only in Thai script. So did the name on your ticket match your name on the card (was in Thai script)?

I live in my Condo, have done for 5 years. I still cannot go in a blue book, I dont have PR. You appear to be confusing long term resident with Permanent Residency. People with PR dont have a visa/extension, they dont do 90 day reports etc and they can go in blue books.

Foreigners cannot go in Blue Book, unless you are one of the small percentage who have gone on to get Permanent Residency.

The whole reason a yellow book exists is because foreigners cannot go in a blue book.

 

99% of the people asking about Pink ID do not have PR and therefore cannot go in a blue book. Why advise (the 99%) people that they can go in a blue book and can get an ID using that blue book.

 

There are (in theory) 2 house books for every property, a blue book for Thais and PR (PR does not mean long stay), a yellow book for foreigners (even if they have been here 20 years).

Hi scorecard. 

Thanks. I was referring to my Yellow Book which I think pertains more to myself than the property itself. 

If I were to change the address from my current rented accommodation 400 meters down the road o wondered what shenanigans would be involved

Yellow book, like blue book, goes with the property. If you move it would mean a new yellow book for the new address and you would go in that new book.

They really need to reword the back of the card because everyone including Thais takes it to mean you cannot travel.

Some people on here claim they use the 'Pink ID Card' to travel on domestic flights and National Parks etc. My understanding is that the 'Pink ID Card' is only acceptable in the province of issue? Correct me if I'm wrong.

My province doesn’t have an airport, yet I use my pink ID card going through security at the other 3 airports I use.
