Story Of My Thai Citizenship Application


Recommended Posts

Time scale - just under 2 years from when I received the official letter saying I had passed last interview. Interview was January 2018, paperwork submitted (by CM to BKK)  just before Songkran if I remember correctly, and then official letter to say I had passed (from BKK) received either April or May. So basically sitting waiting for about 22 months.

Congratulations!

 

For male applicants however the average in the past years is around 3 full years (with some reported exceptions in both fast and slow timelines): in short it's 1 year for SB document preparation until your file is sent to MOI, 1 year for MOI process until you get called for the interview, and from that point one more year for final steps like getting approval, oath, publication to RG.

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

The female contingent (me) do not have to do an oath. We wait for a letter from BKK and then take that along with house reg/passport etc off to the relevant offices to do blue house reg. / ID card/cancel visa etc.

Not great timing hence the Hazmat suit "joke". By next week it might not be a joke!

Stranger things have happened. Let's have some equal rights for men! Discrimination is forbidden in the Constitution 🙂

I remember it's been explained by gurus in this forum this should rather be seen as an advantage in favor of Thai males and their foreign spouse rather than a discrimination against foreign male applicants. To what we could say: 'Let's have equal rights for (Thai) women!' 😊

Good point. I was just explaining what a glass ceiling was to someone last night, in regards to the challenges women face in business here.

I was at the SB on friday and asked them the same question. And they told me that at the time of my asking, they would be at work in their office next week.

That's good news, thanks!

But you better call them to confirm again, because the situation has changed dramatically over the last 2 days. Most offices will be implementing work-from-home starting tomorrow.
