Can I get a certificate of residency at CW


Recommended Posts

I have been trying to download a TM 18 form from immigration forms download site but the form is not available.

I have copies of house masters blue book and ID as well as receipt for previously submitted TM 30.

My name is not in the blue book is this a problem or not? 

NOr do I have a lease for accommodation at friends house

Have you been doing 90 day reports at CW? 

If yes then you can obtain a residence certificate at CW

Yes I have done 90 day at CW.

So now to start the process, do I need to make an appointment to submit the application?

You will need to complete the application, have copies of your passport and your 90 day report along with your passport in hand.  No photos are needed at CW.  Walk in and go to the Que desk on the far right and the folks behind the window will review your documents and if all are OK they will give you a Que number and send you to the B windows. The I/O will review the paperwork, check the computer, and then have you pay 200 Baht for 1 certificate of residency which will be mailed to you at your residence, mine took 8 days to arrive but that was because of the Kings Birthday holiday weekend, so in essence would have been just 4 or 5 days.  They tell you 2 weeks.  I did a report on my trip. I did also have a copy of my TM-30 and she, the I/O did take it as well.

You do not require an appointment.

Above post from @ThailandRyan has you covered.

 

When I obtained a residence certificate they were not interested in my lease.

They did require the 90 day report copy. 

Have the standard copies of passport ..photo page, latest entry stamp etc.

They may not require those.

 

If you are obtaining a car and bike license just tick car. If you tick both they will provide 2 certificates. 400baht.

No not a joke. 

You did not state what the residence certificate is for.

You have been given the correct advice on how to obtain residence certificate from CW.

The info I posted about car and bike licences may be of use to others.

BTW ..on the form there are specific boxes to tick.

Just tick car license.

I got one for bank account took me 2/3 day at immigation.  No, they were not busy. Just lots of passing me arround after each dept gave stamp of approval.  That day, I paid a girl 300 to fill paperwork for me.  another 80 for pics and copies.  Then whatever to immigration itself.  So, like 580?  You could fill the forms yourself , but that just leads to errors and anger usually from officers lol.

But... Beyond frustrating having to wait 2 hours a time between departments and spending all day there

Today hired agent to get me another cert for car and bike license. gave passport and tm30.  They picked it up from my door and delivered it back for 900 baht total.

Complete bargain of a service.

**however, not paying an agent 5000-6000 baht to do my driver licenses, as I feel they are taking advantage of ignorance since I'd still have to go twice and wait all the same amount of time at the DLT.  there is no time savings except they build in getting the residency cert into it and medical cert (which if go to clinic is only 100 baht and 5 minutes though).



Like anything. do a little homework and decide what is right for you and your situation.

@ubonjoe Can you get a certificate of residency for a driving licence / Bank account if you have TR60 Visa (SamutPrakan Immigration area)?

Must not be in Bangkok, as CW is the place to go and you can not get it the same day.

I just asked my preferred local agent I found 2 years ago. 

She charged me 900 to get driver license one. Not sure if she would have charged more to get a bank one at same time?  probably would though but like 500 baht extra I bet.

i'm in Pratamnuk.  Pattaya area.
 

You could probably start a thread with that question or ask in FB group of your area for recommendations.
