Wow 46 years, have you lived here that long?

No, only 12. Brought SWMBO with me, I think.......or maybe she dragged me.

Got married in a village ceremony about six months ago. Went to the local govt office to get paperwork so I could apply for extension based on marriage. Was told by the clerk that we had to go to the Australian embassy in Bangkok to have it confirmed.  Is this a must or is this (female) clerk just being difficult?

When I went (with my gf) to get my Thai ID card the same clerk said if from Australia I could not get it because Australia is not on the computer.  So now I think my ID card reads I come from Austria!

My wife local amphur (small town) said they did not have time. We checked Bangkok and without expensive agent seems difficult. I told my wife to insist to her local amphur. We got appointment same week. 20 baht and 2 hours and it was done.

A village marriage is not a legal marriage. The amphur is right that you need a letter from the embassy, next have it translated into Thai and then have it legalised by the Thai ministry of foreign affairs, consular department! Look on your embassies website for more info.

Question is, can you still do it? Congrats though, that has to be a world record for Thailand.

 

Do you expect anyone to take this loony country seriously?

So pack your rags and skedaddle

Got mine the same day.

Was with my son when he took his lady to the amphur office in Tak, all very friendly and professional, everything was 'can do', all completed, certificates in hand, out the door within 20 minutes. No suggestion whatever of tea money etc.

 

Some of the lady officers were more interested to see the photos of the bride in a traditional full length western white wedding dress and one said she was getting married a few weeks later and asked if she could borrow the dress. DIL changed the subject quickly. 

 

Overall quite pleasant experience. I got asked quietly by one 50 yo lady officer 'you have wife?' I moved away to avoid any further discussion.
