Cerificate of residence....hellish experience

Recommended Posts

I had to apply for a Cert. of Residence a few days ago (for driver's license renewal)

 

Had my mrs with me.

A ton of paperwork and photocopies of everything conceivable (incl my Drivers licence)

 

Staff mentioned something abt 'new rules'

She also said that  it will be issued on the next day but made an exception.

 

The landlord must be present if you don't have a rent agreement or a yellow book (as in my case)

Power of attorney (from the landlord) is no longer accepted.

It took me 3 hours to get it....only 30 mins at the Transport Dept btw.

 

Beware.

OP, was this your regular immigration office where you do extension, TM30, 90 day reports etc?

It sounds more like you were meeting TM30 requirements before they issued a Res Cert.

Amazed it only took a short while at the DVLC place, usually that is a full morning (early start) or all afternoon, here in Pattaya. I don't know what it is about Residence Certificates, in the past they were trivial to get and nobody cared why, more recently they are requiring idiotic proof of why you need them. I am puzzled, they must have some sneaky use somehow!

How much did that cost? Usual 500 baht theft?

Usually do not need a CR if you have a Yellow House Book. I have always renewed DL using Yellow House Book without a problem.

Sadly Pattaya DLT do not accept Yellow Books. You need a Residence Certificate from immigration who accept your driving license as proof of address. Bizarre.

I used an electricity bill (in December in Pattaya) as proof of address to renew my license. TiT : rules change without notice.

With or without a yellow book or residence certificate? They seemed very adamant that a certificate of residence from Immigration was obligatory when I did mine only last year.

A inflammatory post has been removed. A repeat of it will result in a formal warning.

It's very busy in the mornings here too...went just after lunch break (1 PM) and it was almost empty.
