Hi all

i recently arrived in Thailand with a non immigration o visa. Last week I went to Jomtien immigration to apply for a visa extension based on being married to a Thai, they gave me a T.M. 7 form and nothing else. Today we returned to the immigration office with completed TM7 and all the relevant supporting documents according to all the info I could find on line. After queuing for nearly 2 hours before finally getting my documents checked, only to be given a letter showing what documents where actually needed and guess what some of those we didn’t have, we then drove to the office where we were to obtain a Khor Ror 2 only to find all offices are closed due the COVID-19 virus.

So I’m stuck and have no idea where to go for further info on how to more forward, apart from returning to the immigration office and queuing for another 2 hours to ask.

Any advise or contact details for immigration would be great fully received.

Steve

If it's any consolation, my Bangkok amphur was open and the wife got a KR2 form today.

We only tried the one near us in Sattahip, they said all Amphoes were closed.

You could try at Banglamung or Sriracha or Pattaya City hall.

If completely closed it must be a temporary measure. Others reported have been only doing birth and death certificates.

Edit: Or one near you in Rayong province. Perhaps Ban Chang would be one to try.

Thanks, I will try some other offices, assuming I can find the addresses, I’m sure google can help.

Their website is showing the same message that they are closed due to the covid-19 virus. 

I haven't done any extensions yet this is my first attempt.

Would they require the same document if you would it extend it for 60 days for visiting your wife instead of the yearly extension?

it is not a written requirement for the 60 day extension but a few offices want a Kor Ror 2.

This week my wife and I went to our local Amphur in Singha Nakhon for a Kor Ror 2 in anticipation of Hat Yai Immigration requiring it for a sixty day extension. They refused because I did not have our original marriage certificate (1980). They would not accept copy translated into Thai and legalised  at the British Embassy and Thai government office in 2000. What chance at Hat Yai Immigration tomorrow? My guess NONE!

It appears you not  did get married here in Thailand. Did you register your foreign marriage at a Amphoe. If you did then you would get a Kor Ror 22 foreign marriage registry.

Normally a Kor Ror 2 or 22 is not required for a 60 day extension.

 Not having the original marriage certificate may be a problem. Immigration does not require a translated copy of it if it is in English.

In days of Old no English document was accepted in Thailand unless officially translated.

Married in UK. Translated English to Thai. I do not travel to Thailand with my original UK marriage license. I am here on a single entry O based on Uk Pension. I did not anticipate requiring an extension but my return flight is cancelled. My wife's blue book, Thai ID card and Thai passport  are all in her married name and obtained/registered at the local Amphur. Where else in the world do you have to prove you are not divorced when

she is standing next to you! The local Amphur would only know if we where divorced if one of us reported to them.
