Don't see the problem here ? you can pick any religion you want, and if you didn't pick any religion then you can just swear allegiance to His Majesty the King and promise to be a law abiding citizen. 

when sb asked my wife about my religious beliefs atheist was not a option.

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 😀

Not sure why you chose to go through all this humiliation ! But you obviously had your reasons ! If you are from Africa or the Indian Sub-Continent or such, then Thai citizenship may be regarded as u

So don't become a Thai citizen then - the choice is yours.  Thailand is a conservative country. They wouldn't be interested in anti-religious liberals trying to make a politically correct lefty atheist point anyway.  And you wouldn't make a good Thai citizen for the same reason. 

I'm Church of England. I don't know a single member who actually believes in God

The church of England isn't religious anymore, that's why. Churches and cathedrals are now merely retail outlets and museums - Norwich cathedral, for example, just installed a helter skelter in its thousand year-old knave - that embarrassment of an archbishop Welby was put there by his marxist Blairite paymasters to manage the decline.

And you wouldn't make a good Thai citizen for the same reason. As a would-be citizen, you'd be expected to embrace the place for what it is, and respect its venerated institutions. They're certainly not interested in lefty foreigner atheists banging on about western science being the answer to all of life's most fundamental questions.

Happily I'll stay not one, you seem to have assimilated  well.

May 2007 - Got the paperwork and certificate from the Police HQ to

take to the disctrict office to get my ID card. Now I must return my

work permit, alien residence certificate and certificate of residence

to respective authorities as these are no longer needed. Now I can

apply for a passport

I got already the documents from police HQ today, they informed me that I need to go to district office to apply for Thai ID.  Once the ID has been issued, I need to go to Immigration office (I assume Cheang Wattana since I am residing in Bangkok and that’s where I renew my residence visa) and I need to surrender my Residence “White Book” and Allien Red book.

 

Anyone can advise me what kind of letter or document that I need to get from Immigration office in order to apply for Thai Passport at Ministry of Foreign Affair?  Thank you.

Seems like a few irrelevant posts by people who haven't applied for Thai citizenship. I'm a lapsed catholic & I put my hand on the bible & repeated the words. I don't speak much Thai so struggled. A translation would be nice in line with the no need to speak Thai regulation. It was a key moment & felt important.

I was told at SB that I would need to take the citizenship certification document, Thai ID, House Registration book, and certified copy of RG (which SB provides along with citizenship certification document) when I apply for a Thai passport. They told me to cancel my visa after attaining the passport.

Makes me wonder why mine is taking so long. I was told in november 2017 that there were 300 ahead of me in the process. 

I just called the MOI, and all they could tell me was "soon". At least there doesn't seem to be problem,  unless he didn't like being hassled ( ie having to look for file) and put me to the bottom of the pile.

 

How many here phoned or went to the MoI to check on the progress? 

Do you think it helped or hindered your application?

A watched pot never boils.  Patience my friend, this is not a race.
