Photos for Marriage extension

Recommended Posts

Take the information you get here and just take a lot of photos. There is no penalty to bringing more than you need, it is easy to do and costs very little. I don’t understand why people try to do the absolute minimum and then complain when Immigration says you need something more.

It can very office to office.

Generally two photos inside the house with one of them done of you both in the bedroom ( I do one of us sitting on the bed). One showing the house number with both of you in it and one from the street showing the house.

I print mine with two 5 X 7 inch photos on one page (I print them on photo paper).

Inch?

Age is showing....

I have just done my annual marriage extension at Jomtien Immigration Office. For 9 years, the lovely, friendly, helpful, smiling officer wanted 3 photos.  Last year she decided (or was instructed) that she wanted 6 photos. We had to return home and take 3 more. This year I submitted 6 photos ( 3 to an A4 page - one outside the condo room door, the rest inside the condo including the bedroom).  This seemed to satisfy her, but having seen us each year, for 11 years now, she decided we still needed a home visit from her colleagues. They phoned us to make an appointment to visit our condo, duly arrived the following day, took some photos, demanded a witness, interviewed the witness, didn't speak to me, and left.  Now I do understand the need to check to confirm that marriages are genuine, etc, but informing people that you are coming to check on them, and making an appointment to do so, is obviously, IMHO, nonsensical.

I think all English language versions of Windows show them in inches. Inches is still a standard photo size worldwide as far as I know.

Please be aware that the self photos  (2 required) to be attached to application are to be taken in "proper attire"

Read that as suit and tie

Most photo shops can "photoshop" pictures to requirements

My experience last week

They also told me in Mae Sai that they only needed 2 pictures

One outside with house number and one inside the house    (didn't specify where)

Obviously different requirements depending on where you apply

No need for those photoshopped shots where they cut off your head and stick it on someone else’s body. Lol.

 

But same here. One outside with the number of the house, one on the sofa. I took a bedroom shot, not needed. Each photo in landscape, Both on the same sheet, under and over. 2 copies of each pic (on different sheets, obviously)

 

If the OP doesn’t fancy dropping by the local office before or his office is likely to change requirements, Print off two sets of 4 photos, but get a pics in every room, standing and sitting. Get the LINE of a local photo shop and if there is an issue, send the shop the photos and send the wife to pick up them up.

Colour or black & white, A6, A5, A4 of A-Thai - shows you the true colours and sizes of the dinosaurs sitting in these offices, inventing rules on the go and giving the rest of those "dirty farang" a hard time. Pathetic .........

For the past two years in Phuket, one photo together inside the house (the one I supplied both sitting at our dining table), one together outside the house with the house number showing.

 

Both photos printed in colour, portrait format, on normal photo copy paper.

I took your advice when i changed to marriage in jan , spot on ,

both the officers at Jomtien immigration and the officers that visited were smiling and polite, just sat at our dinning table and chatted ,our neighbour popped over and sat with them .

In January this year we had a visit from a guy from Maesai immigration, to take a lot of pictures and interview our witness, it took ages as he was sending all his paperwork via his phone back to his boss, just to prove he was on the job I suppose, but he spent more time chatting up an attractive girl we had visiting us at the time.

 

My wife did ask why all the bother and he said we would be surprised at how many false claims of marriage do happen.

What the local immigration office requires, thats what's needed. A bedroom is just a room with a bed,nothing more.
