Certificate of residence

Post by caller » Thu Jun 15, 2017 2:28 pm

Sorry, another dumb question.

Now, I have got these in the past, but from Korat. And I can't recall what I needed to get them. And my circumstances were different then in any case.

Okay, I have downloaded the relevant form for immigration, but I'm damned if I can find what the supporting evidence is that I need?

I know passport and that I can get pics there, my COA has been notified to immigration by my other half and is now on their records and a copy pinned in my passport.

Anything else?

Thanks.

Right, I got my certificate of residence earlier, required for renewing my driving license. For the sake of completeness and to help anyone who hasn't yet done this, here's what I did -

Downloaded the form from here - it's number 36.

https://www.immigration.go.th/download/

I completed the form in words then printed it off, signed it and attached two passport photographs.

I photocopied the following from my passport:

Identity page of passport
Date permitted to stay
COA slip (to Hua Hin) stapled into passport
Departure card

I also took a photo copy of my other half's ID card (not signed and dated as she is away)

I obviously took my passport as well as the Blue book (not needed, not looked at).

I went to the office dealing with such applications, handed everything over, paid my 500 baht 'fee', waited outside while they dealt with everything and a few minutes later, the door opened and I was handed the certificate along with my returned passport.

One curious thing, when I handed over the completed application I was asked whether I was going to renew my license at Cha am or Pranburi and this was added to my application. I dont know if that has made its way onto the actual certificate?

They always ask that, so once you have it, you are committed. However, some friends decided to use Cha-Am when Pranburi said no, and Immigration changed the letter free of charge.

Okay, thanks for that - they never asked that in Korat, where I got my last residents cert when buying my truck. Maybe there wasn't a choice?

I got my residence cert in Hua Hin, and when asked to choose a DLT office, I chose Cha Am. However, I ended up using the DLT in Khon Kaen of all places, and no one there cared that it said Cha Am.

All I needed for my residence cert was a rental contract, passport, and 2 photos.

Not everyone has a rental agreement. I just like to go forearmed. In effect, I got mine with passport, 2 photos and photocopy of other half's ID. It was my first experience at HH, so went with all the stuff needed at Korat. In fact at Korat, I needed a letter from my other half confirming I was living at her address.
