Affirmation of freedom to marry can reuse?

Recommended Posts

Good day

I presently have a one year marriage visa for Thailand in good standing. In a few months, I will be applying for my first one year extension.

One of the documents required is a "Affirmation of freedom to marry" document, even though I will have been married for over one year with Thai wife. I Have Thai a flowery marriage Cert.

Being that I have been married with Thai wife the past year, can I use the Affirmation of freedom to marry document from first successful application to get one year? 

Or do I have to go to US embassy again and pay $50 again for this document?

I understand having this document the first year, but not the second year

Does anyone have an up to date list of documents required to get extension?

Warm Regards

If needed you can use a copy of your existing affirmation of freedom to marry.

I am not seen any recent reports of it being needed for an extension of stay application.

Where did you get the list that shows it.

This is my general list of required documents,Marriage Extension Requirements 2.pdf

Others might know better, but (I think) you need another document from your local authority saying you are still married. It must be dated same day as you apply for your extension.

That is a Kor Ror 2 marriage registry. Thais is done at a Amphoe by requesting a printout of it for a fee of about 20 baht that is stamped, signed and dated. If divorced the print out could not be done.

At most offices it can be done about 30 days before you apply. I am only aware of one odd office that wants one done the day before the application is done.

Yep. I copped for a bad one. Had to be dated that day. Got another one next day and the office didn't date it. Rejected again. Chaiyaphum.

I asked Thai wife about Kor Ror 2. Is there a translation for this Kor Ror? She does not seem to know those words 

 

My most sincere thanks for replying and providing info

That is a commercial website of Siam Legal.

Often known to give incorrect information.

 

An 'affirmation of freedom to marriage' was the declaration document you originally made at your Embassy in order to present at your Amphoe to get married, which the Amphoe keeps.

 

What you do need apart from your marriage certificate is an update Kor Ror 2, as already mention by UJ.

When you married you were handed a marriage certificate and the registration document (Kor Ror 2).

This is the document both you and your wife signed as part of the marriage registration procedure.

 

When applying for an extension based on marriage, Immigration request an updated copy as proof that since marriage you haven't divorced, therefore still legally married.

You can obtain an updated KR2 from any Amphoe.

This from the top of one.

You probably got a copy of yours when you registered your marriage.

In the future, if needed, you should know that Kor Ror 2 is one of the documents you can get in English language at any Amphoe or District Office. No need to translate the Thai one if you can produce an English one (for some countries).

How could they give you one again if you are already married?  Or do they not even check and just take your word for it?

Why the hell do they want an Affirmation? You can't get married without it so clearly it existed. Ridiculous! OTT as usual.

They are checking you are still married. Not that anyone does check. They just run a copy off sign it and date.
