Yellow Book - Wife's Property We Don't Live In?

Yes, I got that process wrong.  I was thinking she would add me as residing in her book so that I could get a yellow book. 

You have to go to the local district office (amphoe) where you're actually staying and apply for the yellow house book. When you have the book you can apply for the pink ID-card. The ID-card just verifies that you have a yellow house book.

As a foreigner with a temporary permission to stay in Thailand you cannot get added to a blue house registration book.

don't bother nothing to be gained anyway

The yellow book is your normal place of residence nothing to do with who bought it, you should question your wife about your “ partial ownership “ !

Was mostly looking to do it to then get an ID card.  Was just reading another thread about someone having problems at Kasikorn getting a new debit card with a PIN because they wanted to see his passport from 22 years ago and some of the hassles he encountered as a result of some computer systems being set up to accept a Thai ID which never changes vs a passport which expires every 10 years. 

The guy with the K-Bank account should have updated his passport data at his branch when he got his new passport ages ago. It's common sense. A pink ID-card is only valid 10 years, unless you're 60 years old or older.

Wrong info.

A yellow house book is based upon a blue house book with consent of the head of household shown in it.

You do not have to be the owner

A good friend has a yellow book and I'd card he rents a condo in Pattaya as long as the lead name in blue book agrees no issue getting yellow book

Her Blue Book is from that property and I was wondering if it made sense to just have my wife add me so I can get a yellow book. 

Why you need a yellow book. 15-years in Thailand, never needed a yellow book for anything. Don't you have a a proper (with owner signed ID card) rental contract? That should be sufficient to establish your residency.

As it saves any hassle when needing a certificate of residence. Just use the yellow book no more begging immigration and paying them tea money. Or getting the immigration officers look or indeed not having anything to do with smug Immigration officers who actually believe there own press.

Is my reason for having it

As above, not much use having a yellow book for a place you dont live in, plus you would need to go the ampher where the wifes property is (and prove you live there) to get the yellow book. If yellow book says you live in wifes hometown then thats the immigration office you would need to use, license address etc. You dont get added to the blue book to get a yellow book, we cant go in blue book.

My yellow book is in Bangkok but I live in Khon Kaen. I've had no problem getting a visa extension in Khon Kaen, as I never need to show my yellow housebook. In fact, I showed it recently at the KK driving centre and no problem.

 

There's no need need to get a yellow housebook anyway.

How often have you used your yellow book?

With the consent of the blue book holder you can apply for your yellow book. As you plan to change your residence several times before you settle somewhere for the long term, you may want to wait getting the yellow book until you settle down.

Once you get the book it's very easy to change, if you want, I've had mine in Bangkok and two other provinces. However, unlike Thais, you need a letter from the former Town Hall to take to the new one.

Why would you keep and continue to use a yellow book for a property that you dont live in ? It would be pretty useless unless you want the Bangkok address on a license etc or want to lie about your address.

A yellow book belongs to a property and lists who lives at the property, it doesn't follow you around thailand as you change address.

He needed it so he could apply for Thai nationality at the office in Bangkok instead of trying to it in his home province.

As I said, telling a fake address.  I imagine it could pose a problem if immigration/police want to do a home visit or send important documents to an address you dont live at, surely it would come to light eventually

They have his actual address as well. Special Branch Police in Bangkok encourage people to do it because they are aware of problems with getting it done at the provincial level.

I was advised to move my yellow housebook to Bangkok when applying for Thai citizenship. 

 

I think you're mistaken about a yellow book listing all who stay s at a property.
