American With Thai Birth Certificate

Recommended Posts

Long story short: I was born in Thailand in 1990 and was given a legitimate Thai birth certificate. My family moved from Thailand to the US before my second birthday. I received my American citizenship when I was around 10 years old. My question is, am I still a Thai citizen? If not, then will I qualify to apply for my Thai citizenship without having to physically live in the Thailand? I am looking to apply for a dual citizenship and have exhausted my search. 
 Thank you

You do not have to apply for Thai nationality since you are Thai from birth.

If you have a Thai birth certificate issued here in Thailand you can be registered in a house book and get a Thai ID card. It would be best if you could be find a member of the family to get registered in their house book.
