Recommended Posts

Ya I really wanted to go, but with these Thai lesson's you miss a day and you really have to play catch up. About 20 weeks into it now, so I'm dragging muself there a lot of times when I'm not really into it. Fortunaltely the instructor seem to be able to keep up you enthused to to get through the bad days.

Oh yeah I forgot, well I hope to start next term, basic Thai. Anyway, back to the tabien bahn. Talking to Val yesterday, he mention that once upon a time the tamien bahn was accepted in lieu of 90 day report (or something to that effect). How true this is I don't know, but it would seem common sense that if you have proof of residence in the form of a yellow book issued by a government agency that it would be acceptable to immigration of an individual's residency status...TIT :o

Hello,

I'm also interested and will try it next week. (tips from your experience appreciated since I'm also outside udon.)

There is a farang in my village (unfortunately) and the family all swears he got his name on the blue tabian bahn along with his wife after finishing his house. Ever heard of that? I haven't seen it and he is not in Thailand atm.

Thanks!

ps- need a projector? see classifieds!

This morning the wife and I went to the tesaban (Udon city hall) to inquire about the process for the tabien bahn. In no time we saw an official who looked at my documentation and was satisfied with what I presented him. He scheduled us an appointment for 0900 on Monday and ask to return with the documentation and two witnesses (the official specified that the witnesses could be family, friends or neighbors, anyone who could verify who we are). My documentation:

-marriage certificate, original & copy (ours from US, translation not necessary)

-wife's tabien bahn (blue) + copy

-wife's ID + copy

-my passport + copy & and a translated copy of my passport (information page only, he did however verify my visa (Non-Imm O)

-fee, forgot to ask

I'll report back on Monday.

My name is also on the blue tabian bahn.

I am mentioned in there as being the legal father of our daughter.

Nothing special about that.

Great info Rito! Sounds like minimum hassle. Hope it goes smoothly on Monday.

If we can be added to regular tabian bahns, why are we getting the yellow 13?

If it shows home ownership, seems like we would need more proof/ documentation?

Hi

It does not prove ownership of a property it is just proof that you have a permanent place of residence.

A yellow house book also enables you to buy a motorcycle or for that matter any motor vehicle and register it in your own name.

Also I have found that producing the Yellow Tabien Baan when dealing with any Thai beaurocracy (spl) seems to smooth things over.

TBWG :D

This a follow up of today's appointment. The process took approximately an hour. Same documentation as above except added copy of visa page (non-imm O), and copy of my son and daughter page's in my wife's tabein bahn (blue book). During the application process I was asked for my parents names, but didn't have to show any documentation proving their names.

Yellow book should be ready by the end of the week and still don't know if I have pay a fee for this service.

has anyone had to get the ID page of your passport certified by the foreign ministers office on chang wattana in bangkok after it was translated to Thai?

Barry

No never in my case, but then only required to provide a translation on two occasions. One for my tabien bahn and the other was for my daughter's birth certificate when she was born.

  • 4 weeks later...

My yellow book experience in Udon, so far...

1. Went in with all the documents mentioned in this thread except passport translation. (No health card required.)

2. Was told I'd need the passport translation and name and address of my parents, also translated.

3. Set an appointment date for the following week to come back with two witnesses and the puyai bahn!

(Couldn't talk her out of the latter.)

4. Went upstairs to the marriage section and sweet talked them into finding my marriage files. They were bundled in a stack on top of a cabinet in an open air shed behind the building. The guy had to literally climb up into the cobwebs , but somehow we found it after searching through only three tied bundles of forms. Made copies of the Thai and English, embassy certified copies of parent information that were required for the marriage. (Profuse thanks and 100 Bt to the dusty guy from the second floor!)

5. Got the passport translation done at a local English shop/school. (Nice guy and Thai wife; name card misplaced.) She had some sort of official stamp.

6. Attend the scheduled meeting with two witnesses (mother in law and neighbor), landowner (my wife), and puyai bahn. One hour meeting at desk #6 just inside from the copy machine room. Lots of interview questions although it broke down to just chatting at some point. All the while an assistant is typing a two page document that is a synopsis of the documents and interview answers. All present needed to sign the completed document.

7. Originally had been told the book would be ready in a week, but am now told "We'll call you."

8. A week later I called and was told it would be done in about a month, and "We'll call you."!

I guess as always, ymmv and TIT! :o

Kwarium,

I was told the same thing, ready in a week. It's been almost 4 weeks and still haven't received mine. The wife was up there yesterday to inquire about it. She was told that it was approved but not processed due to other priorities.
