Embassies and Consulates cannot perform or register marriages. The following information is provided:.
A legal marriage in Thailand consists of two parties registering their union with a local Amphur Thai district office, similar to a county office. It is a process that can take several days to complete. Note: An affidavit is a self-sworn statement, NOT a guarantee or certification of single status.
Ensure you are prepared to provide proof of divorce, death, etc. Check with your Amphur before coming to the Embassy as there is an additional service fee for a certified copy of a passport.
There are NO walk-in services. Obtain a certified Thai translation of the document s from a professional translation service.
A partial list of translators located near U. Embassy Bangkok is available here. Present the following documents at any Amphur in Thailand to register your marriage and obtain a Thai marriage certificate:.
The Ampurs closest to U. Embassy Bangkok are located in Pathumwan and Bang Rak. To our knowledge, it is not necessary to make an appointment. If neither person getting married speaks Thai, consider bringing an interpreter.
Most states recognize the validity of legal marriages registered in Thailand. If you would like to register your marriage in the United States, you must contact the Attorney General in your state of residence to inquire about their specific documentary requirements.
Then make an appointment and bring the MFA-certified documents to our office; we will authenticate the ature of the MFA officer by appointment for the appropriate fee.
