Change to Extension based on Marriage

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have an extension based on Retirement. I was planning to change to Extension based on Marriage. Is that possible directly without a new Non Immigrant O.  

I am married with my thai wife abroad. I think I need Letter of Evidence regarding the marriage certificate from my Embassy. Do I also need Kor Ror 2 from local Ampur.

Thanks in advance.

The most important evidence that you will be required to show is …………. your wife!

The MFA at CW in Bangkok will probably have to add their stamp to the translation as well. I think the other way is legalise it and get your local Thai Embassy to stamp it, in your home country.

The foreign marriage certificate must be validated by your embassy and then translated to Thai. Then the translation must be legalized by the MFA at Cheang Wattana. Take the original, the translated documents and wife to your local district office and have it registered. You will receive a TM22 form to use at immigration.

It is a Kor Ror 22 foreign marriage registry issued by an Amphoe.

For some people that is the hardest part of having the foreign marriage registered at an Amphoe. For some people the legalization of the marriage certificate can only be done in their home country.

That is what i had to do ,luckily i was on holiday and did it then ,first at Milton Keynes ,then the Thai embassy in London ,both by post ,only took a few days in both cases ,however i have heard on here that it takes a good bit longer if doing it from Thailand (and costs more)

the other bits here in the British embassy and at Cheang Wattana i got an agent to do ,same with the translation ,at the end of the day it would have cost me as much by the time i drove to BKK and did it myself.

Without the correct documents, it doesn't matter if he shows his wife.

If you do it yourself you need every document in perfect order. If not, pay an agent to do it all. These agents seems to be able to get anything accomplished.

I would say so if you have the ability to park it and leave it.

It’s a terrible way to tie up funds as an investment. The few extra requirements switching to marriage is well worth the effort.
