immigration additional form
« on: May 04, 2013, 01:44:12 PM »


 A friend of mine went to d/k last friday to get renewal for 1yr. They give him an additional form

 and told him to take it to his local amphur office with his wife id card housebook ect.

 To verify his address.then return to d/k with it signed. Anyone heard of this.

 He's on marriage visa 400,000. which consists 200,000 bank + 200,000 pension. from uk.

I know that people have been asked to get a document from their Amphur office to confirm that the marriage certificate is genuine. You can get it at the time of marriage or any time later. Could this be what he was asked to get?

I didn't know that you could still use a combination of bank deposit and salary. I thought that the rule was changed a few years ago to the effect that you had to go for one or the other. Does anyone have experience of this?

It seems to be a recently introduced check to identify forged marriage certificates. Oddly, the confirming document is in black ink only, surely making it easier to forge than the multi-coloured marriage certificate.

Correct.  You need to get that form from the Amphur.  Scan it and save it to your pc.  The reason is that a new poo yai there transferred from Phuket and he implemented this new action.  The problem is that there have been forgeries, obviously in Phuket.

The form basically states that you are free to marry and apply for the marriage certificate.  Sort of like an application in a way. Most people don't have it so immigration will send you back to the Amphur to get it.  It's a good idea to scan and save all that stuff.  If you have a smartphone you just make a document folder and put your stuff there.  If anyone wants to see a copy of a certain document, you can show them, email it from your smartphone, print it to a wifi printer (if they have one).

Thaiga. Sh1t. My turn next week. Hate paperwork too. Saf. N/A to retirement visa. Hooray.
BUT. I'll see how the really helpful British Embassy letter rates in practice.
After years in Nigeria, I know, smile, stay cool, be nice, Wai, wait. Sometimes it's easier than you fear, but my next post might be from ???

Yet another form.

An expat. went to Immigration in Korat today to apply for a married visa. He was given a form to be completed and signed by a neighbour for the purpose of confirming that the couple were cohabiting. The signing of the form had to be photographed. The guy was told that the new Regulation applies to all first time applications and, for those already holding a married visa, to the first extension after its introduction.

Now, that sounds too daft to be true but may well be true. Has anyone any information about this?

I just applied for my marriage visa, because I was here long enough to get it done before deploying again. I was given the form being discussed, and was in fact told since it was my first time to apply that this form must be completed. We complied with the request and photographed the event. I now have the marriage visa. Yes it was silly, but what can you do….

Nothing, other than comply, then tell them its a load of jobsworth rubbish........

I recently did my retirement visa and was asked for wifey's id card together with her house book, wtf its my retirement visa, what would they do if i was'nt married ? I complied, you don't have any choice, but i did tell the IO that it was a load of unecessary rubbish, made me feel better..........

I believe their get out of jail card is "The immigration officer can request whatever information they deem necessary to support your application", in other words a licence for them to be as ridiculous as they want, TIT

I suspect that they asked for this only if you were living at her house.  Similarly, you need documents from your landlord if you are renting. I agree that paperwork can be overdone on occasions but, as you say, there is little to be done but smile, learn and go along with it.

Remarkable new way of saving immigration personnel, to involve the neighbors into checking on the actual cohabitation of the married couple! Are any specific questions asked as well, how often and how long the bed is shaking etc.? ;)

What does one need employees of the Big Brother, the government, if the neighbors can do?
