25 years of age , acquiring thai passport. How can I avoid conscription


Recommended Posts

Hi I’m 25 years of age and born in New Zealand mother is a full thai national and father is a New Zealander .

 

i have recently applied for a thai passport and in the process of getting it , however I only plan on travelling to Thailand for about 3 months on my thai passport because I can’t on my New Zealand one .

 

is there any way to avoid thai military conscription next year? I want to go In December and return to my country before the lottery.Is this possible ? 
 

ive heard different things like I’ve got 5 years to enlist and things like don’t  register to thai housing to avoid it 

 

and would me not fulfilling military service effect future visits on my

New Zealand passport 

 

just looking for some options if anyone could help me

Yes, if you want to learn how to be a servant for the privileged.  Pick up a lot about house and car cleaning, along with some gardening skills. However, if you're lucky, you might simply get beate

my friend's son was in just your position, as a Thai Brit citizen. He was selected in the lottery and had to give up his Thai citizenship to avoid conscription.  Having said that, I said 'had to' but

The usual anti Thai nonsense. Yes, there is bullying in the Services, there always has been. but many young Thai men benefit from the experience, learning a trade, or just being able to travel around

Why if you really want nothing to do with Thailand other than to visist which you can do eventually on your NZ passport are you getting a Thai one.

I can't tell you about TH and New Zealand. However, in my case, I am Czech and had my permanent residency in Germany. The German government said that I am Czech and don't need to military service. The Czech government said that I live in Germany so don't have to do military service. The German government would only conscribe until the maximum age of 24 at that time.

 

Your habitual residence is in New Zealand.

It’s a simple matter of choice. There is no way around it now, other than to take a chance and draw a ball on selection and Hope you get the right color so that you don’t have to enlist. In order to get the Thai passport, you’ll need to be entered in a blue book (house registration), no way around that. When you get the Thai passport, the ONLY way that you can be sure if to be safe is to not travel to Thailand again until you reach 30 years old. After this age, you’ll be exempt. If you try to enter before this age, when you reach the airport and present your passport, you will most likely be detained, arrested and then taken directly to the military for 2 years service. This also goes the same if you try to use your NZ passport too as they will link it. I’ve seen people in the same situation think that they can beat the system by using their foreign policy to enter only to be marched off to military camp and we’ve two years service.

Germany has no conscription. It was cancelled some 6 years ago.
