As said in Post 6 above, next step is to get it translated and approved by MOFA in Bangkok.

It's really confusing.
If it was stamped by the Thai embassy (a legal representitive of the Thai government abroad),

why would it need to go through the Thai foreign ministry in Thailand?

Maybe because you're outside of Thailand you get to skip the MOFA phase, people inside Thailand cannot.

The affidavit needs to be translated to Thai and legalised. You can get it translated and then legalised at the Thai Embassy in your home country.

Yea, i guess, i am going to find out on Monday when i call the Thai embassy.
One thing which is a real downside is that to get the affidavit, we need to translate my girlfriend's formal agreement for her personal details to be used in the affidavit.
This needs to be done by a notary, translated into Bulgarian and legalized by the Thai MOFA.
This is the downside of not being able to do it within Thailand.

Where are you at now?

I suggest you try calling the honorary consulate in Bangkok. Did you read my previous post about it?. It certainly exists.

I have asked my girlfriend to call the honorary consulate in Bangkok, yes.
Thank you.

Actually, she just checked and the consulate was closed permanently.
So this leaves me the only option to make it in Bulgaria.

How did she find that out.

I just tried calling but of course no answer.

It appears on a list of consulates that was updated this month so I find it odd it is closed.
