In that case it would be about 12 months for me. So I guess I have at least another 6 months to wait.

yes , 18 to 22 months are standard wait time. lets hope OCT - or NOV.

for me i still not reach 12 months, i am also expecting end of year OR next year starting.

 

Good luck

Businessman my wife taught towards his citizenship process a few years ago was asked for 500k baht for his passport, when he declined they came back a few months later and said he could still get it but the price was now 700k. He did not bother, I wondered if it was common practice.


Let me guess: this demand came through a lawyer or some other intermediary, right?

The answer is NO, absolutely not: qualified individuals do not need to pay anyone off the be naturalized!

exactly i think, once you have Thai ID card, you don't need any lawyer anymore, just go straight for Passport.

Time Period starts when your documents send to MOI [...] normally we heard 18 to 22 months wait.

Not by my calculation. From applicants who reported recently I have 14 months on average (this is an average, for the range I get [6-22] months). Funnily, I'm at 14 months exactly after my documents were sent, and waiting for MOI.

Now if you're right, one thing could explain that and it would be that several persons who reported the 5-9 months waiting time could actually be female applicants, while those who were on the 15-22 interval would be male applicants. Not sure about that but it's a possibility - aliases do not always tell who's behind.

Female Applicants 4 to 9 Months,.

Male Applicants, 18 to 22 Months,.
you can see in RG every month Female Candidates name announced who are married to Thai husband.

Female applicants always get faster.

So there was a meeting in May(on the 24th), and there has been every month this year, despite what some said about there not being because of the election and Coronation. Looks like things are going much faster than before, when many months are missed d due to budgets.

Good luck to all waiting. 

Has anyone phoned them to check where they are in the queue?

I attended the MOI interview on the 24th of May. There were about 30 or so applicants there of which 18 were applying under marriage to a Thai wife.

Do you have an idea of the date or month SB sent your application to MOI?
