Story Of My Thai Citizenship Application


Recommended Posts

I just paid a visit to the BORA bldg in Lumlukka. Very hard to miss, but I did because I was looking on the wrong side of the road. Memory playing tricks on me.

 

Office is on the 3rd floor. Staff very helpful. I have a copy of the acceptance document with a second page showing my name (in Thai) along with others in the batch that my SB officer shared with me. I showed her that and she retrieved my file and then spent about 10 minutes going though each page to make sure everything was in order and found everything ship shape and Bristol fashion. When I asked how much longer to an interview she said 'soon, this year'. Hope she's right! It's almost 14 months exactly since the application was accepted by MOI.  I gave her my wife's mobile number just in case I miss a call. It was a relief to see that the file was all there and had not been misplaced and that there wasn't a problem with anything. She mentioned the interviews take place on the 2nd floor. As someone mentioned, plenty of parking in the ramp out back.

Thanks for this report. I noticed that my definition of "soon" seems to be somewhat different from the one that the officer uses, though.

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

 We live in hope. She seemed sincere 🙂

 

I should mention that as she was paging though the docs she asked me if I was willing to give up my current citizenship. I think the letter stating that triggered that question, kind of a reminder. 

 

I must say that all the officials at SB, the NIA, and today have been exceedingly pleasant, going out of their way sometimes to be helpful.

I found the Special Branch police to be extremely pleasant and helpful as were the NIA. Also, the people at the MOI. The only complaint I have is about the canteen at Lamluuka. I'd recommend bringing sandwiches.  

 

Expecting to hear soon about the next batch doing the Oath, and also the next announcement in the Royal Gazette.

My guess: RG this week (or next), oath next week (or next). We'll see...

No one of the recent candidates had to pay to speed up the process and get the final BORA interview?

 

Heard your file can accumulate dust for years without a little extra help - even after MOI approval.

I doubt its possible as there are about 30 people doing the interview thats a lot of payments. Also doing something like that would certainly jeopardize any chances of becoming a citizen
