Certificate of Residence requirements - Jomtien Immigration Office

Recommended Posts

Yes it really is a strange one. Logically the address is the only thing which might generate some 'unofficial' income which cynically I would suggest is the reason that such a song and dance is made of it. I must get my third driving licence in Bangkok before I return to UK for the summer and last time I couldn't get passed the haridan on the enquiry desk in spite of my address not having changed. changing.

I struggle to see the logic of the DLT requiring you to get a certificate of residence from Immigration in order to prove your address to the DLT, when one of the address proofs that Immigration will accept for this is your old driving licence from the DLT.

Of course it doesn't make sense, but somewhere exists a rule which says for a driving license you need to have a certificate of residence (or house book or id card), so they just follow this rule

probably shouldn't have a permanent address to begin with

In the image that you posted it says "hotel certificate", so much regarding a "permanent" address 😉

The DLT could just copy the address on the old license onto the new licence themselves thus completely bypassing Immigration. Duh.

A classic case of some for you and some for me. 🤣

That would be tricky if you had to sell a vehicle after your one-year visa extension has expired and you want to sell up and leave because to sell a vehicle (to transfer ownership) you also require a residence certificate. A friend sold me a motorbike a few years back, and it was no problem for him to get a residence certificate with only a 30-day entry stamp. Perhaps they would make an exception for situations such as this.

Someone at an Expats Club meeting announced yesterday that they had gone to Jomtiem for a residence certificate and had been asked what the purpose was. On informing them to purchase a vehicle was asked for proof of the purchase.

The fact that the old DL was acceptable as proof of address infers that this post is about applying for a DL.

The rules for other purposes are not the same, so perhaps that's why they first ask what it is for?
For buying/selling vehicles they require proof.
For selling, I believe simply the Green/Blue Book in your name.
For buying, I think they want to see the Book in the seller's name plus a sales contract, so that might be more complicated.
The other stuff (Passport copies etc etc) is the same I believe.

Basically, whatever you want an RC for, they want proof.

I thought that you only needed the residence certificate to buy, not to sell.

Maybe the copy shop outside can provide them also... 😉

An office in Soi Post Office can get them for 500B. In English too, if required. (Those can be useful for proving an address for foreign banks.)

One that I saw recently looked authentic though I have no idea whether it really was or not.
