The following are the steps that are the services and steps taken the in order to assist you in making your marriage legal. This will give you an idea if you try and tackle the procedure by yourself. However if you would prefer to spend you time enjoying the pleasures of your stay here in Thailand, we are here to help you with all the details at the specific Government Departments.
First, we will verify and endorse your marital status with a visit to your country's embassy. (every embassy has its own form for this regulations.)
Our representative will help you arrange the meeting. You will need to take your passports and two photocopies of the passport pages that have your photo as well as 2 photographs.
You should arrive in Bangkok at least 2 to 3 days prior to your planned wedding, this will give our staff enough time to process the documents and translation. if neither of you has been widowed or divorced, no other documents from you embassy will be required, however if either of you has been previously married, you will need to supply our Bangkok representative those documents assessing to that fact. If you like to get visit to the embassy on the day of your arrival make sure that day is not a Thai holiday or your country's holiday. (All embassies are close during holidays).
Our representative will either meet you at your hotel in Bangkok to pick up your sworn statements which have been endorsed and stamped by your embassy’s consular, or you can sign power of attorney allowing us to pick the documents for you.( The reason is based on your nationality). The embassy can take up 1-2 days to process your documents and this allows you to continue your holiday immediately.
Our representative will have the documents officially translated as required by the law, and will then take them to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok for endorsement. (This will only take 1 day to proceed)
The completed documents are sent by one day express courier to our office in Phuket. Once we have received the documents in our office, we will take them to the District Official and it will only take 1 day for them to check for accuracy.
Finally, we arrange the District Official to be present at your ceremony, where he will ask you to state your names and professions and 1 or 2 other simple questions. He or She will then present you with marriage certificate. After you sign this, you are officially married as required by Thai law. To ensure your marriage is officially recognized in your own country, it is also good idea for us to have the marriage certificate translated into English. Once the legal requirements are met, you can then decide what type of ceremony you would like to celebrate.
