Story Of My Thai Citizenship Application

Mid 2016 get Line message mid 2016 with picture of RG announcement, but need to wait a while to get the documents from SB.

 

Final step  found out there is no clear time line when you need to get the Thai ID, so postponed it for a while as travelling a lot, and no time to get ID, then passport and then Visa

 

Enjoy your journey and be patient. If you meet the crtieria, and in some cases sing well, you will succeed, it just takes a long time. 

 

Basically 6.5 years in the queue.

A much braver man than me. Once I got the papers an interview was set up at the District Office (actually they called me before I even got the papers from SB). I would not have dared to postpone getting my ID card after all the stress I had gone through.

 

Anyway, congratulations.

Thanks and cheers - SB told me there is no law about when you need to pick up ID

Said they can do it whenever it's convenient to you and even recommended i complete my travels first before doing it

1, Substantially short and cheap if you are married to a thai. Total 3 years on WP and pay taxes on 40K/month salary

2, Substantially long and expensive if not married to thai. First step is 3 years on WP and pay taxes on 80k/month salary to get eligible for PR. After applying PR, may take any where from 3-6 years to receive PR status. Once receiving PR status, wait 5 more years to be eligible for applying thai citizenship. All this period still have to be employed on WP and keep paying taxes on 80K/month salary. Add up all above years and altogether it will be within 15-20 years to get your thai citizenship after starting your 80k/month job in thailand.

Not that I recall. Very sure I submitted docs for PR in December, was I think there was a decision in April, and the next December, got my PR

Yes, citz takes for ever, about 6.5 years for me. From what I know you need almost constant employment so as not to be disqualified

So end to end about 8 years

That is the when you can apply for Thai nationality.

Hard to say how long it will be to get approval and then a Thai passport.

if read my write up above... my recommendation is clear..... don't waste your time thinking " I am eligible, I am not eligible ".

 

just go to SB, show them the docs they request for, they will do the maths and tell you straight out. If you don't, they will tell you what is next

 

I though I did not qualify, but I did.

PR is completely different from applying for Thai nationality and is covered in another topic.

You apply for Thai nationality and wait for it to be approved. PR is not included in that process.
