1 yr marriage extension - Questions about the affidavit (US embassy)


TPDH

Recommended Posts

Hey
 
I'm going to apply for the 1 year marriage extension. My Thai wife and I got married in the US so we first need to get the Kror Ror 22. To get that, from what I've learned here on the forum, we need an affidavit signed from the US embassy that confirms/certifies the marriage certificate. I wanted to ask you a few questions about that. 
 
  1. What should we write on the affidavit? Been searching the forum but can't find anything. 
  2. Which affidavit should we use? There's a few different forms/affidavits. If there's a link to the right form that would be very useful. 
  3. One forum thread here mentioned something about including or confirming the passports in the affidavit as well. Any idea how you do that? 
 
There was long wait times to get an appointment at the US embasy so we'll only have one shot to get it right before my current visa expires. Any other advice or something we should think about for this appointment? 
 
I'm not a US citizen but I've confirmed with the US embassy that they still provide this service for non citizens so it should be fine. Just wanted to mention it in case it affects anything else. 
 
Thank you.

1. You just write that the marriage is true, correct and valid. You include where it was issued and the date.

2. You use a blank affidavit form.  See: https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-of-u-s-citizens/notaries-public/affidavit/

3. That is not done as a affidavit. The can certify a copy of your passport photo page if the Amphoe you go to wants it.

You marriage certificate and the affidavit has to be translated to Thai and certified by the Department of Consular Affairs DCA) of the MFA. Same for the certified copy of your passport if needed.

Info for the DCA legalization is here in Thai. https://consular.mfa.go.th/th/page/cate-6441-รับรองนิติกรณ์เอกสาร?menu=5d68c88b15e39c160c008184

More info is on the Marriage and Divorce forum.

I have moved this topic to there.

Thank you! Is there anything I should bring with me to the US embassy besides my passport, my wife (plus her passport), the affidavit and the original marriage certificate? 

 

To certify the passport pages, I guess we just need to bring our passports and then the embassy staff will know what to do?
