From an UbonJoe post in aother thread:-

 

https://www.gov.uk/get-document-legalised

 

The steps for it all is here.

Normally the last step is for the Thai embassy certification most problematic for some people. It has to be sent the embassy and back to somebody to have it all mailed to here.

Info for the enabasst part here.

@jimn are you still in the UK? If so the process is the same just far less hassle than doing it remotely. From experience I'd get your birth certificate done at the same time.

 

Thanks but its not for me its for a friend who spent hours at Chang Watana yesterday only to be told he has to get it sorted by the embassy in the UK. I will digest what has been sent to me, cheers.

depends why you need it of course, but you can get a UK Marriage Certificate translated and then Notarised by the UK Embassy and that should be enough for most if not all occasions  when  you need to produce it.

Sadly the UK embassy will no longer legalise any docs, it has to be done in the UK.

 

Our OP's friend appears to need it for a marriage-based extension so it's the UK based process I'm afraid.

sorry, my bad, I meant the Thai Embassy in UK.  Poor communication by me .

No worries 🙂

 

The process in a nutshell is:-

 

UK legalisation => Attest the legalisation by the Thai embassy London => Send to Thailand => Translate into Thai => Certify at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs => Take all that to your local ampur who will (should) then issue a KR22 (registration of foreign marriage) which you can use at immigration for an extension based on marriage.

 

You need a new KR22 copy each year, at least that's easy...

Thank goodness we got married in the Village. Not you and me of course. I would hate other Members to get the wrong idea. 😀

I helped a (soon to be ex) friend sort it at our local ampur, of course they added a few extra hoops to jump through.

There's a series of threads about it, if search worked reasonably I'd add a link.

 

EDIT Here's the latest in the saga, each thread has a link to the previous episode:-

I followed UbonJoes advice ,last year when i changed ,luckily i went over to the UK at the time ,sent my papers to Milton Keynes , they were returned to my UK address quickly ,i had been warned that the Thai embassy were not very good ,but luckily i spoke to the actual guy and sent a slightly higher fee ,got the paperwork back in about a week or so ,then had it translated and verified here ,got a solicitor in Pattaya to arrange it ,better than the bother of back and for to BKK.

i was lucky it all went smoothly ,but there are stories on here where it was a pain in the bum ,so much easier and cheaper if your in the UK. 

getting a kor ror 22 is a doddle ,if you live near the ampour,
