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

Yes, I got called as well. I’m really glad to hear that they are moving through the backlog. I have heard the same thing. If you are Christian, you can bring a bible or they will provide one for you. Interestingly they don’t really check the book so you could in theory swear on your favorite book, if it has a nice bible looking cover. Atheists could bring a Nice book or something. Also the Christian oath is generic and does not refer to swearing to god or anything, so atheist would probably be most comfortable doing the “Christian” oath. I was told that when you arrive at the office you sign a document that states your oath. Someone should snap a picture of that form. With the Buddhist oath you have to bring flowers and Wai some Buddhist statues in addition to bowing to a picture of the king while giving your oath. 
 

if you need pictures, I was told that there is a shop across the road in the Siam center area (across from MBK) on Siam Soi 2. It is about a 15 minute walk from the SB office. 
 

now let’s just hope that after the oath they clear the growing backlog waiting for RG. 

 

it seems as though they are processing the oaths by order of month interviewed at MOI, which is a good sign that the applications are slowly but steadily moving through the steps in the process

I am an atheist, but having once been in the monkhood, told them I was Buddhist as I did not want to cause any confusion. So I did the Buddhist oath. My ID card identifies me as Buddhist which is fine by me.  Even now if Thai people ask me about my religion and I respond that I am atheist, many act quite shocked as it is very strange to them.
