Go along to your pyb, explain, he/she or one of his/her staff will accompany you i'm sure.

Some say they have no problem getting the yellow book, others do have a difficult time, but if they don't want you to have it, they will not give you one, as in losing  :blank:

here's a post from 2012 rawhod t/v

Twice attempted to get a Yellow Book...

After a preliminary visit we were told what we needed; 'O' Visa, copy passport, residence letter from immigration ,copy Blue Book, copy Thai gf id card, two witnesses complete with copy Blue Book and id cards.

Had everything for Attempt No. One.

Not quite sure what happened but we were told "Not this time but if you marry, come back and you can get a Yellow Book"

Subsequently we married.

Back for attempt No Two.

Different staff in the office...

Took everything as attempt one but with the addition of marriage cerificate.

After about 45 mins they produced a Yellow Book, so I had one in my hands briefly, but they decided that we needed " A government employee witness as well as the two we had"

This seems in line with other peoples experiences...The goal posts seem to keep moving.

not a buffalo hmmm. NO... That's not the right way

how can they find witnesses at the amphur to vouch for you,and verify that it's you,when they don't know you ::)
surely your wife family have kids at school go along and ask a teacher.

the book is not a necessity anyway, enjoy your life.

Thaiga this is just one of the many Big issues ;)
ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

Hi buffy. the answer to your pm - no i haven't been yet - let us know the outcome of your visit in the thread when you do go.

Hope all goes well for you regards. Thaiga.

Just a note for you guys that join another forum, that doesn't mean you can't post on both. feel free to come and go as you please.
But do bear in mind some forums are run as a business ie: adverts and so on, where as Koratfart.com solely relies, and is paid for by the admin alone, unless any contributions are sent  :)   A free forum serving the community

All Completed > Pink Thai ID Card & Yellow Tabian Baan for foreigners
« Reply #34 on: February 23, 2018, 05:28:52 PM »
Well today was the day we got the nod that the process was completed and to come in to Korat central Amphur and collect the Yellow Tabian Baan and also make the Pink Thai ID card.
 
It has been a very bureaucratic process and has taken 2.5 months from inception to today.
 
First it seems that they do not rush your application. 
   
When you do go for the 'big 2 hour meeting' the reason it is so long is that they process your initial application 'Live' while you are there in person.  ( in the West you would drop it off and they would process in your absence )
 
The paperwork required was just as was requested on the original Amphur form.
 
Costs

>  500 Baht for Amphur to Translate Passport to Thai
 
>  500 Baht for Immigration Certificate of Residency
 
>  100 Baht for Yellow House Book
 
>    70 Baht for Thai ID Card ( Pink! )

>  120 Baht for Photos

>  500 Baht Thank You gift of 2 Bottles of Blend 265 for Pu Yai Baan ( he did not want any money :) )

Thai ID card is good for 10 Years.
 
It was 5 weeks from the big meeting to process being completed.
 
Off to Pattaya this weekend - First test of the card will be checking in at the Hotel ( no passport required anymore )
 
I get that obtaining a Thai ID Card is not important for some folk. 
   
Personally for me it was about feeling more connected and accepted by the Country I decide to currently call 'Home', whilst also making day to day life easier for myself ( Banking \ Bills \ Hotels \ Car Ownership etc )

well done buffy, especially after the big breakfast ;) you finally got it. now make sure you keep it in a safe place, you wouldn't want to go through all that again                Be interested to know how the hotels are dealing with it.     Enjoy yourself at the seaside

PS: (Personally for me it was about feeling more connected and accepted by the Country I decide to currently call 'Home')
your still be called a farang Ha! Ha!
                                                         :cheers

"your still be called a farang Ha! Ha!"
 
Yes of course you are right!
 
I usually counter that with NO... I'm Khwaai Pua ( white buffalo )
 
That usually knocks them off guard that a farang knows those words! ( the women don't normally teach that one! )
 
Then I just call them a Khwaai Dam ( Black Buffalo  )
   
It always ends in laughter all around :)

I hope the use of the pinkie will be extended.  An e-Lane at immigration in Suvarnabhumi would be a good start.
