Hi All, For those who are interested, the application process for Thai Citizenship in my case went as follows: Late 2003 - Picked up the checklist from the Police Headquarters on Rama 1 Road Janu

Loads of names published in the RG today and I am one them! Exactly 3 months to the day since taking the oath 😀

Nice surprise today, there is a RG announcement and I'm in it 🙂

Would a business not need to show significant activity/profits? Or do they only care about the salary you take out?

The revenue department would want to see a profit but you could easily lose money the 1st couple years.

Meeting held for Interview for Nationality.

 

FYI

Seems to be happening every last week of the month, which would make the next one in 3 weeks.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, looks like there was an update to laws published in the RG on 30 July regarding applying for Thai citizenship. In addition to some more administrative hoops to jump through, such as attaining the pink ID card, a major change seems to be the added requirement to have lived in Thailand for no less than 10 years. No mention about length of stay for those married to Thai citizens. If someone knows better than me, please enlighten us. Thanks!

That pink non Thai ID, although useless, takes about 10 min to get, as already got the house book.

I'd guess that all gong for citizenship the PR route have lived in Thailand 10+ years.

These are the changes that I consider important:

 

1 (1) Applicant has to submit a copy of the pink card

1 (2) Applicants have to submit a certificate [I don't understand this but think it is a medical certificate of sorts:] หนังสือรับรองความเป็นคนไร้รากเหง้า
1 (3) Applicant has to prove that they have been in the Kingdom not less than 10 years. [They are giving a list of examples how you can prove that.]

1 (4) Proof that the applicant appreciates the democratic monarchy, for example if they have contributed to society [I am not sure what that means]

2, 2.2 Three character witnesses who can also confirm that the applicant has been in the kingdom for at least 10 years [seems like a duplication of 1 (3), but I think the point here is that 1.3 is an objective proof, and 2.2 shows that you have long-term personal relationships. It also used to be 2 character witnesses, now it's 3.]

 

Disclaimer: I am not an official translator, I take no responsibility if anything is translated wrong or leads to misunderstandings. I'm just doing my best here. Also, the choice of points that I consider important is my own subjective choice, with no guarantees that others might find other points equally or more important. I am not a lawyer. Sentences in brackets [] are my comments,

It seems to me that document is for stateless childs. Does not concern us.

ไร้รากเหง้า is stateless. And the second requirement of 10 years residence is keep mentioning the childs. So I am assuming it's specific for stateless childs. (Like the famous cave ones)
