Legal issues

If you plan to have a legal marriage that is to be registered in the Kingdom of Thailand,
there are a number of legal steps to be followed.

You will have to provide confirmed and written evidence that your legal civil status
allows you to get married.

Forms are available from your country’s emmbassy in Bangkok.

Once in Thailand, you will have to present yourself at your embassy in Bangkok, together
with your passport for the form to be stamped.

The form then has to be translated into Thai by an authorized translator who will use a
stamp that the Thai authorities will accept.

You will then have to take this form in Thai to the Legalization and Naturalization Dept
in Bangkok; they will need three full working days to process it.
