Life certificate (Sweden)

Recommended Posts

Hi

Im a Swedish citizen, and I moved to Chiang Rai a few months ago, and I wonder if someone on this forum maybe can help me with a question. 

As retired, I have to provide Sweden with a document that declare that Im still alive, every year, and I don't know where to torn to have this dune, here in CR?

I called the consulate in CM and they only answered me, "you have to drive here"! Sounds kind of stupid to drive 400 km for a sign and a stamp, so I wonder if there is anyone else on this forum that know how to solve this problem here in CR?

I'm afraid so, fly or drive to the CM Consulate or the Embassy in Bangkok.

 

If you have received a life certificate, you will need to visit a Swedish Embassy or a Consulate to get the certificate endorsed.

Applicants for life certificates/pension must come in person with the forms received from Sweden and a valid government issued ID (e.i. passport, driver´s license, unified ID and the like)

For life certificates, the Embassy will forward the completed and signed forms together with a copy of the applicant’s ID to the appropriate office in Sweden. You can read more about life certificates on the website of the Swedish Pension Agency. 

Relatives of pensioners may also receive the form "survivor's pension/survivor life annuity" which needs to be endorsed by the Embassy. The applicant is responsible to send these forms to their respective pension agency in Sweden.

As your a Swedish national, I believe you.

 

Unfortunately your Embassy website doesn't give that information.

Thanks to both of you for your reply. However, I moved from Sweden already 15 years ago, so I don't have a bank ID. What I wanted to know is if there is any other a authority here in CR that would be willing to verify that Im alive. The document I received mention the following, social insurance institution, notary public, police authority or a population register agency, as institutions that should be able to verify my document. Not sure if this will work in Thailand?

any consulate or police station are obligated to

sign and stamp it, after which you mail it.

if you still have a swedish bank account,

you can download the bank id app

OK I was in the very same position as you are now back before 2017..  So may I ask you. Do you have a swedish bankaccount at all???? I mean for your pension and so on??? I ask before if you have that you can easily log in into your bank and register a BankID, very easy...

 

So I presume you do NOT have any, and we take it from there.... It was hard here in Chaiyaphum because i have about 370 kilomters one way, so allmost same as you have, down to Swedish embassy in Bangkok which is the closest for me.... So of course I looked around for other options....

 

And I started with the Immigration, their response no way, I argued it is just a signature nd here is my passport. But they refused.....

I thought that a lawyer could do the trick, but that was not allowed by pensions-myndigheten. So that was a drag.....

 

I went to our big police-house central Chaiyaphum city, I talked to several officers and they refused to even look at the damn paper, I tried to argue, just a signeture..... But refusal. So my only option left was to go to Bangkok and our embassy.... <deleted>.....

 

THEN a neighbour, a friend to my wife heard the following day about my dilemma, and said, give me a minute, I talk to my brother, he is a police........

She came back within 5 minutes and told me to go down to Ban Khai about 10 kilometers away, her brother will gladly sign my paper.

 

So I went to Big C and bought 10 donouts and went these 10 kilometers and did ask for Rong Wichit..... It turned out that he was second in command at that police-station, and he smiled widely when I entered the room. I gave him donouts and he did sign my paper with two big fat stamps and his signing of course.....

 

So what can suit you in what I did, I hope something  can be worth it, maybe you have in the family or the neightbourhood a police-captain or something that can save the trip to your consulate.... Of course if you have a swedish bankaccount that really would save the day...

 

Good luck

What is the name of your bank????? In my bank NORDEA, I just log in, look at the settings, goes to GET BANKID and problem solved,,,,,,

i am 100% sure that there must be some kind of misunderstanding, all the banks do exactly the very same.. They all have access to BankID.

glegolo.Thanks for your reply!  No,there is no mistake! I have written to them more than once on this subject and explained,that it is almost impossible for me to go to Sweden.I have also told them,that I have no other reason to go there,so it would be only for this matter! But they reply,that it is the only way for me to get the ID. The perculier thing is,that I have this numbercard,with witch I can log in and control my accounts or leave/recieve messiges on my "brevlåda" there! The bank is Handelsbanken.

Glegolo.OK,Ithink I now found out why I can`t get the ID.Has to do with the way I log in to the bank.I use,as I said,"användarbricka" (numbercard).This seems to be not enough;must have "kortläsare med sladd". which I probably can not get without bankID...Catch 22 situation...It's a new fascinating time we live in;all the wonderful electronics. There were a time,many years ago,when I just telephoned the office in Sweden,and they recogniced my voice,and sent money from my account there to my dito in Thailand...
