Hello to everyone, I’m here again. 2 weeks ago i been in jomtien immigration for extend my tourist visa till 26 March. Yesterday I went to jomtien immigration again with my thai wife and with my thai baby with the documents for ask to change the visa from tourist visa to Non immigrant O visa. I’d like to obtain the visa for being parents of thai child. The woman who I talked was very rude and upset because I came already 2 times there ( the first time for ask the documents I need to have for ask the visa ). When she saw me and my wife she said: I hope this time you have all the documents! 
i bring with me these papers: 

-passport of me, wife, thai baby

-id card wife

-tabien baan 

-birth certificate 

-bank statement

-my photo

-photo of me, my wife and baby together

-koh ror 2 and 3

-copy of residence

-copy of tm6

-copy of contract of residence of the condo where we live

 

the crazy woman she was angry because I don’t put all the documents in the sequence showed in the paper that she gave me. She ask me also these documents:

 

-the original paper of contract of marry ( we call the agency that took care us and they said that nobody can have the original, they give to everyone the copy, the original must stay inside the office )

-the paper of single status about me translated and legalized from my embassy ( Italian). How can I have this paper if I married?!  Look crazy...

- photos of me, my wife and my daughter in the front and inside of the condo 

- ID card and tabien baan of landlord of condo

 

Everything must be showed them before 15 days of my visa expiring. From yesterday unfortunately my baby is inside the hospital because have high fever so I don’t think so that I can have all the documents and come back immigration with my baby and my wife before number 11 of March. 

 

Can anyone suggest me the best solution for have this visa? 


I’m thinking to go savannaketh for ask this visa because maybe is more easy and I can go alone. 
Thank you for support and sorry for my English...

If the local office is being difficult I would do a visa run to Vientiane or Savannakhet to get a Single Entry  Non O. It very easy to get from either place.

the original paper of contract of marry ( we call the agency that took care us and they said that nobody can have the original, they give to everyone the copy, the original must stay inside the office )

 

You don't have the original marriage certificate? Please see attached photo.

 

An agency can't keep your original certificate, only a copy of it. 

 

If you're going to Laos, you'll need the original marriage certificate.

 

They only want to see it and give it back to you, but also want a copy of it.

 

You can apply for it in the morning and pick it up the next day at 2pm.

 

But please be aware that you'll need an appointment for Vientiane. Upper northeast/ Nong Khai.

 

Not for Sawanakhet, which is on the other side of the friendship bridge of Mukdahan/ Isaan.

Thank you for your answer,  yes I have this paper but she said that she want another. They gave me only 2 paper from my wedding. I will try again. 
I don’t know why she have to make action same general army... 

Moreover i don’t understand why I have to bring my paper single translated and legalized from the Italian embassy when I’m asking VISA BEING FAMILY OF THAI CHILD... 
if my baby will quit hospital soon I will try again to ask. 
if something goes wrong I will go Savannaket or Vientiane...

I agree that this seems unnecessary bureaucracy, but there is an explanation.

 

Besides being the father on the birth certificate, you also need to prove that you were married at the time of the birth (or that the birth has been legitimised via the court).

Most immigration offices will refuse a visa based on being the parent of a Thai child if the applicant is married to a Thai person.

The on the left is not a marriage certificate (the link for it says it is a divorce certificate). The one the right is a marriage certificate.

change the visa from tourist visa to Non immigrant O visa. I’d like to obtain the visa for being parents of thai child. 

If you are over 50, Non-O can be simple.

Just keep 800K baht in a thai bank all year .

immigration just needs to see your bank book, bank letter, and proof of residence.

 

Sorry your method for obtaining a Non-O for being a parent is not working for you.

Hang in there, maybe try a different day and someone else will be working at that station

I’m 33 ... and in my bank statement that I showed have more of 400.000 ( I think under 50 need to have more of 400.000 ).
Anyway thank you to all for the answers. About the paper of marriage I have already the original and I will bring the same even if she said that I need another paper ( I don’t know what she mean ).

i very upset because I been already two times in immigration and I’m boring for the way of how she talk. In addiction of this I need that the paper of single status being translated ( English an Thai ) and legalized in bangkok from my embassy.
