At the corner of the road to the station and Petchkasem. By the traffic lights. You will need a 'yellow book' in order to apply.

The blue book is for Thais, foreigners need a yellow book. Heres how: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=32552

Having a blue book means either you own a condo or have residency. Not sure whether you need a yellow book alongside your 'empty' blue book. I've heard conflicting stories. I'm sure a visit to the tessabaan will give you the full sp.

My blue book is not empty, my name has been filed in !
I'm owner of a house (leasehold) and like all foreigners in my development, I have a blue book with my name inside.
For info I d'on't have a thai wife.

Only Thai citizens or permanent residents should have their name in a blue tabien baan. It will be interesting to find out what the tessabaan thinks, though presumably that's where it was issued.

But all foreigners in my development and in the 3 sister developments got a full tabien baan, almost all of them are here with a retirement visa .
It also was strange for me to get a tabien baan with my name inside.
I have already use it to open new bank accounts and at insurance and I can thus confirm that my name is inside and that my tabien baan is not empty.

I just got my Pink card at the Tessaban on Monday. I handed them my passport, blue book and yellow book but they only wanted my yellow book. They took a picture and both thumb prints and handed me the card after about 30 minutes total. Cost was 60 baht. I found them very friendly and helpful.

I think you'll find that you are listed as the owner in the blue book but NOT registered as a resident. That's what is meant by 'empty'.
You can however be registered as a resident in a yellow book.

The blue book doesn't actually specify the name of the owner, as I understand it. Page 1 contains the house registration details. Page two onwards contain the names of people resident in the house. One resident (normally the first, i.e. the person listed on page two) should be shown as "house master" (เจ้าบ้าน), which does not imply ownership, although it normally is the owner. The house master is simply the person responsible for maintaining correct registration details for the house, such as approving the listing of new residents, registering deaths, etc. The house master is the person who must approve the issuance of a yellow tabien baan for foreign residents in the house. If a house has no residents, only page 1 should have entries. If the owner is a foreigner and there are no Thai or PR residents then pages 2 onward should be blank, the foreign owner could be entered in a yellow book, and, I believe, would be shown as house master.

Nobody's name should be in more than one book. If someone owns 2 houses they can only appear in one book.

Well done, HHinner. You explained that well. I was trying to get across that a foreigner cannot be registered as resident in a blue book (unless he has Thai residence) and would need to get a yellow book to show he resides at that property.

While not doubting the posters above who say they have their names in their blue books, it would be interesting to see what details are entered on the registration pages. And even more interesting might be the process by which it was done. As far as I know (which may be wrong) even Thais have to attend in person to be entered in the blue book.
