I don't care what day its on, as long as it is soon. It's now 19 months since my  NIA interview.

Same for me - 19 months. I was told, that 3-4 months ago the last female ahead of me in the process (in CM) was successful and announced (I think she was Filipino).

Estimation: as she was one year ahead of me , mine would appear either end of this year or beginning of next.

Strange, that seems slow. I thought it was faster for women.

might be worth calling to see if theres a issue. My wife called and they said my interview would be this year 

Yes, might be a good idea as I remember your documents were sent to MOI after mine, although I didn't get a cover letter.

Maybe in BKK but in the provinces it seems not.

Got a technical question, after the oath are you considered Thai ? technically you have sworn allegiance to His Majesty the King and to Thailand, you are congratulated after taking your oath by the officers as well, the reason i asked was what if someone has taken their oath and suddenly the Immigration guys pop up at their place demanding a fine for the TM-30 nonsense, would you have a strong case to tell them off if you have the paper work stating your application has been approved by his Majesty the King and you've done your Oath?

I'd say it doesn't matter as you're not Thai yet. You'd have to cancel your visa extension first.

my understanding is that it is official when your name is published in the RG. At that point, you could refer any immigration officers to the RG as proof of citizenship.

This topic has been running for 12 years. The amount of changes during that time must have been many. For anyone new coming to the topic it must be immensely confusing and time consuming where to start. I would have thought that there must have been more than one or two posters willing to post their updated journey, possibly with the assistance of mods so that newbies didn't have to start from the beginning or another random page reading information that was no longer relevant. Or not?

It doesn't seem so. The RG announcements I've seen end with "ผู้ที่กล่าวชื่อมาแล้วนั้นได้รับการอนุญาตให้แปลงสัญชาติ" which doesn't say that you're Thai citizen but rather that you're entitled to change your citizenship. To me, proof of citizenship comes later when you complete the process (likely close to when you get the ID card). Just my view.

Congratulations! Seems they are speeding up the process.

How long did you have to wait from NIA to MOI?

thank you. I think it was around 18 to 20 months. I wasn't really keeping track back then. Figured it was going to take a while so I applied and sort of settled in for the long haul. Application to MOI was about 23 months.
