Story Of My Thai Citizenship Application

How common is it to make it all the way to the MOI interview and then be rejected? And what are the kinds of reasons than an application might be rejected at that stage?

Not based on anything but my opinion. I think the moi interview is a formality and if you made it that far theres a high chance your good to go. The moi interview is 3-4 minutes and looks intimidating but its not. 

 

The NIA interview is more intense and probably where most people would fail.

Just a formality, IMHO.

Perhaps you would get rejected of wearing a Chang wife beater and shorts, or being drunk and showing disrespect to those you shouldn't. 

Relax, the MOI is short and informal.

The 3 latest RG announcements (for male applicants) were in Aug 2019, Nov 2019 and Feb 2020. If the quarterly trend continues we could expect the next ones in May, Aug and Nov this year. I hope to be in one of them.

What i dont understand is they are printing 35 names in the rg or about 150 a year but are processing 300 a year through moi?

As I could see, it's not always 35 (I've seen sometimes 60 and even 100 in one RG at a time the announcements were not issued very regularly) but I also believe SB receives women applications, so perhaps the total of 300 is for both men and women which could explain the number of roughly 150 men a year.

Interesting, as the oath seems to be every 2 months.

Does anyone know of my wife will have to go with me to anything after the MOI interview?

Also, when moving my yellow house book to Bangkok, I needed a letter from my old provincial hall. I believe I can get the blue house book from Bangkok then can move it to anywhere without a letter. Does anyone knows if this is the case?

My wife died before I even had my second interview with the MOI, so I would say no. However, my son who was above the age of 20 needed to help out with some documents as he was the registered house owner.

Thanks for the reply Gary. I thought you might know due to your very sad experience.

My wife is not the house owner where my yellow book is, so I suppose she doesn't need to be there anymore.

She won't need to go with you for the oath or to pick up your certificate of citizenship. Wife was needed at the Khet when being transfered to blue book, even though neither one of use were the homeowner of the blue book and my wife is still in the blue book of her family home. The homeowner has to be there, as well. I think different Khets have different rules, so it's possible your wife won't have to be there.

Thanks! For clarity, do you do the Oath then after the publication in the gazzette, go back to SB to get certificate?

I read a good website on the process that that said after the oath you get the naturalization cert.
