Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is also one of the region’s key gateways to connecting and direct flights to Europe and the United States.
In Thailand, the legal and ceremonial aspect of any marriage is considered as separate entities, and one may happen without the other. However, we recommend that you register your marriage so that you may be able to address legal issues concerning Property, Immigration, and other related matters.
The requirements for marriage registration include an Affirmation of Freedom to Marry from your Embassy in Thailand, along with your passport and Divorce Certificate, if applicable. Some Embassies may require a Single Certificate from your home district for verification prior to issuing the Affirmation. Your Thai fiancée, on the other hand, will be required to submit copies of her National ID card, House Registration, and when applicable, Divorce and Change of Name Certificates. The Marriage Certificate is issued at the local district office (Amphur), and once it is translated into English, it is recognized valid around the world.
While this process may involve a generous amount of paperwork, Marriage Registration in Thailand is a breeze with the assistance of our competent legal advisors who will be able to assist you with the process, saving much of your precious time and effort.
