Udon thani Marriage extension requirements

Recommended Posts

Several question for the knowledgable visa experts on here.  Bit long so bear with me.

 

Residing in Udon and would like to apply for extension based on marriage for Non-imm O multiple from HOCHIMINH valid until July 15 2020.  I am currently on amnesty.

 

I understand  marriage extension document requirements are as follows:

  1. - TM 7 Application.
  2. - 2 Photo (4 x 6 cm).
  3. - Copy of passport, main page, visa, TM 6 arrival / departure card.
  4. - Copy of marriage certificate.
  5. - Copy of Kor Ror 2 from Amphur office.
  6. - Copy of house registration (blue book / tabien baan).
  7. - Copy of wifes ID card.
  8. - Map location of house, hand drawn. 
  9. - Photo's of marriage / at house / in front of house
  10. - 1900 Baht to pay for visa. 
  11. - Letter from bank to prove 400,000 Baht in bank for at least 3 months. / 40000 baht transffered for 2 months.

 

I read offices have different ways of interpreting rules, or additional rules. Does anyone know of Udon Thani's extra or different rules? ( e.g. requiring two witnesses? )

 

I recently received Affidavit / written statement of income from my investments from Canadian consulate in Bangkok.  Do all offices accept this, will they ask for proof of that income coming into Thailand?  I transfer money in with transfer wise so  i do not have international incoming transfers.  Does this document need to be translated?  Does this need to be 'authenticated' by Chang Wattana office? 

 

Regarding photos, Picture of house, Picture inside living room.  Is a picture inside the bedroom area really required (or appropriate).?

 

Thanks much in advance.

You need a wife, always best to take her along, no copy necessary.

Thanks  for that John, planning to take the wife.  Just assumed to bring copy of her documents as well.  Not copying her, one is enough.

I wasn't taking the pissssss, she needs to sign the documents as well in front of them.

 

The witness part ( one ) doesn't start until they have accepted your application and then they will visit your house and talk to your witness.

Completed my marriage extension in Jan at Udon, documents they required not on your list:

 

Two copies of everything

Original Marriage Certificate  (returned)

Kor Ror 5  (wife’s name change)

Yellow Book

One witness at time of application at Immigration with copies of their ID card and Blue book

Three pictures,  one in living room, one in bed room,  and one outside house showing house number.

During house visit they require another witness with copy of ID and House Book.

Used the money in bank sowas not asked where it came from, only checked to make sure it was deposited for 2 months.

In the past I used the income method with Embassy letter and was not questioned and they accepted it in English.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks @tango sierra, that is helpful.  I was reading conflicting reports about the witness and income method with letter from embassy wrt UD IO.  Did they ask for supporting bank statement / tax returns to go along with the that letter from embassy?  Did you need that letter from embassy certified at chang watanna?

Updated bank book may be required in addition to letter. 

Bankbook is revolving 20-30k every couple weeks whenever i transfer using Transfer wise.   It doesnt show international transfer.  That is why I will attempt with embassy letter.

One more question for any one reading (maybe @ubonjoe).  I am living in Udon but live closer to Nong Bua.  Can we use Nong Bua Immigration or you have to live in same ampur?

If are living in Udon province you have to it at the office there.

The offices are designated by province.

Bank book must be updated on the "day you apply" and a letter from the bank confirming the balance on that same day.

There is no additional fee for the visit of immigration officers to your house.

 

Refreshments are appreciated by the visitors.
 

There is no need to have 2 Thai neighbours, 1 is enough.

 

They may take pictures, they did not when they came to see us, they didn’t even come to our house but we had lunch with them in the nearby town.

 

all of the information above specifically applies to Udon immigration.

You cannot choose your proof of income. As you are Canadian you must use the embassy letter, you can not use the foreign bank transfer proof.
 

English documents from the embassy are accepted without translation or Authentication.
