Yellow Tabien Bahn Process


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I also got the impression that we could wait. There was an interruption of over 10 minutes during our interview where a Thai walked up and handed her some documents. They were not simple and were sorted immediately anyway.

TIT!

I'll let you know when I get another update.

Enjoy!

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

Maybe you should use the more expensive "Express Service" LOL

Now that you mention it no money has changed hands or been mentioned. maybe they'll hold it up until money appears!?

Mine took about a month to process,no fee but we were told that to show our appreciation ,lunch for the big boss and the office supervisor would be a nice gesture,so we obligingly took them to lunch at the local Vietnamese Cafe.

By the way a mate in Udon was issued a Siam Bank credit card on the strength of having a "yellow book ".

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

7. Originally had been told the book would be ready in a week, but am now told "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.

Following up on mine. Picked it up today after about 5 weeks, no fee, no tea money.

Yellow Tabien Bahn.

I have heard farengs got the blue Tabien Bahn before but for some 10 or 15 years ago the cover was changed to yellow for farangs. Because there is a different! You can't get a Thai pasport or Thai ID-card and you can't vote to district and goverment elections or buy land.

But you can buy a house in your name and the law protect a house on leased land. You can buy cars, motorbikes and get a bank account with credit card in your name. You can get your landline telephone and internet in your name.

It's easy to get a Thai driver licence. A Thai driver licence is good as an ID-card.

You don't need to chance your Tabian Bahn even you are moving to another town. I did it when I moved in a new house but it's the same Amphur and Thetsabahn did it in 10 minutes. In my new Yellow Tabien Bahn is my new address but also my old address and no need to change my driver license for car and motorbike.

Other informations in this topic are correct. If it takes some time (weeks) I pressume Thetsabahn has a lot of paper work.

Hmm, had all those long before appling for the tabian bahn (yellow book). I'm still not clear what document would confirm I actually own the house. If it is indeed the yellow book I wonder why weren't any financial documents or receipts required? Wife has tabian bahn on the same house and of course it is her land!

BTW- Mine took 3 weeks, but the landowner needs to sign to pick it up and she won't be in town before October. They never did call to say it was ready.

When you get the 'Yellow Tabien Bahn' it does NOT automatically makes you to the owner of your house! It's only saying that your wife has accepted to enter you in her blue tabian bahn and you got the proof as you receive a yellow tabian bahn...Thetsabahn don't know about your investments in Thailand! Thetsabahn is the big boss of the so called "District Office" and register birth, weddings, address books, ID-cards. Most married persons know this office.

Now you have to start to visit all the offices involved to show your financial documents! I don't know anything about your (your wife's!) house! Did you buy it cash or monthly payment? Are banks or a housing company involved? You must find out. If the land is owned by your wife she must be the landlord... Something don't fit here...!

To take a simple case e.g. if you want your car back in your name...

Your wife/girlfriend must:

Sign a form that she has sold her car to you.

Make a copy of her ID-card and sign it (Blue ball pen).

Hand over the "Tabian Rot" car register book to you.

(Not many thai ladies like to do that...)

You must visit the "Land of Transport Office":

You must hand over all the documentations plus

a signed copy of your Tabian Bahn.

A little comment about your last remark.

How you know? Maybe they called the landowner but she won't be in town before October...!

I know another case where the cell phone had been stolen!

What about your embassies? I know some thai ladies were invited to Canada, USA and Australia by their boyfriends. They had to go to Bangkok many times and just turned down because the embassies want more documentation. The boyfriend had to take a trip to Bangkok to clear all and get the visa.

I went to the Amphor Office to day and got my Yellow Tabien Baan.

The paperwork took about an hour, and the wife, mother in law and Poo Yai Baan had to be present to sign some papers.

What I took with me.

  • Copy of passport (inc Visa)
  • Copy of Thai driving license (Motorbike and car)
  • Copy of the house Tabien Baan (blue)
  • Copy of Mother in Law's Tabien Baan
  • Copy of Poo Yai Baan's Tabien Baan
  • Copy of wife's ID card
  • Copy of mother in law's ID card
  • Copy of Poo Yai Baan's ID card
  • Copy of marriage certificate
  • 6 passport size photos
  • 2 postcard sized photos (should show the full body including legs)

After the paperwork was finished I had to return after lunch and pick up the Tabien Baan

** Please remember to make an appointment with the chief guy at the Amphor prior to attending.

Very painless process, and no fee.

Totster :o

I'm on my third now,will have to change again when our week-end cottage is finished (I'm a little paranoid,don't like an extended family registered on the premises) it's a very straighy and easy task,not many advantages, but useful if you want to buy a car in your name,or a byke,and as you CANNOT be registered on the blue (only for Thais) one,is proof of your residence.The fee is nominal,but if you don't like to wait a little tea-money is required.

By my experience,you don't have to inconvenience the Pu Yai,every beggar around is fine,for 20 Baht they'll sign anything, photos are Not requested either,no need for a driver license,or a marriage certificate.

Of course T.i.T. so every Amphur may be different. :o

It was the Amphor that requested the Poo Yai Baan and photos. The mother in law and Poo Yai Baan had to sign under the postcard photo that it was me etc..

They also requested me to bring copies of any official documents I had .. hence the marriage certificate and the driving licenses, anything to add weight to the application I would imagine.

A good idea for anyone is to visit the amphor office and get them to list what you need to do beforehand, that way there will be no surprises.

In my case, the reason the Poo Yai had to attend was to physically identify me as the person who lives at the particular address and to sign a statement to that effect.

As the Thetsabahn told us, it is he who is ultimately verifying that you are resident in question.

Seems a lot of hassle to get a car registered. Just go to immigration with your passport (with visa) + 2 photos and get them to type up a residence letter. This costs 200B use your licence as the address in Thai.Done in 10 minutes and works at the motor registry as good as a Tabien Bahn.

Yelow Book.

You Require as per the rules the following.

Letter from Embassy Stating Where You Live.

2 Winesses Must Be Employed. (I.E._ Must be Tax Payers.)

Must Come from your imediate area.

One Witness should be the local Boss ! Thats what they call them.

Blue Book.

Thats it you do not haveto be maried but it helps and take the Blue book holder with you who will also have to witness.

They say here guarantee but thats rubish its just confirming wher you live.

Yellow book. What use.

Many Intenet Banking Easy When you show.

Police Problem helps so much I Know.

The list is endless but it helps in ways you would not belive.

Imigration dont need but want a copy. Strange but helps.

It makes people belive you want to stay in Thailand.

Dont pay for one.
