Hello:)

I would like to ask about the Police Clearance Certificate following this question below,

1. I know that the office is in Bangkok , but if my hometown is in Nakhon Si Thammarat province **( I'm current in Bangkok)** , Do I need to ask another one from there too? or just need from the one in Bangkok office only ?

2. How long does it usually take when you bring the documents to the office in Bangkok? ** ( I wonder do I need to take 1 day off from work or it doesn't take long time, so can do it on lunch break )**

and if you have any recommend about what is the best way to get it , like paying extra I've heard.. Please feel free to let me know :)

Thank you in advence !!

You need a police report from that usually comes from the main police station in BKK.

Its Thailand so as you know so only you know if lunch break will do. I suppose that depends on distance & time. Your hometown is a day by bus I think.

Plan on a few weeks.

You can try to pay ' extra ' as you wish. Its helped some.

Thank you very much for your answer:)) I didnt mention that actually my office in BKK where I work now is located just close to the main Police station , So I was wondering how the process of applying document will take longer than an hour :)

Thanks again!!

Yes leaving out that type of info can cause a lot of wasted time & may end up giving you bad info.

Call them directly because no one here knows their work load on a given day. Ask exactly what you need to bring in because it should be a copy of NOA 2 or another doc.

depending on the size of the line, doing this on your lunch break may not be possible, my wife was there for a couple of hours before speaking to anyone.

1. Only Bangkok

2. Probably can't do this at lunch. I think it took my fiance about 2 hours.

3. Unless you are really in a hurry, just pay the 100 baht. Don't give them 2000 or whatever to speed it up. It takes 3 weeks exactly and they mailed it to us EMS with signature needed.

Yes, bring a copy of the NOA2 and if you have the letter from the Embassy then bring a copy of the letter from the Embassy as double proof why you need it. They also wanted me to write a letter saying I had asked her to marry me. I'd never heard of this before and it is not in the requirements so don't be surprised if they ask this. Also, I would strongly suggest you bring the "Martial Status" letter from your Amphur saying you are single or whatever proof you have that you are not married.

Has anyone been asked for NOA1 for the Police Certificate, or at any stage for that matter? The one document I forgot to send my fiancee. Seems like a scan should work too, there is nothing physical about the document.


We can do it.

Yes, they need originals and copies of the passport, ID card and house-book, etc. (read list below). All copies to be signed. They do not need an original NOA2. However, bring originals and copies of everything listed and they will walk your fiance through the process.

It wouldn't hurt for the copies to be in color even though there is only a little color in the Marital Status document. If you have the cover letter from the Embassy give them a copy of that also, but it's my understanding the NOA2 is good enough. I had a copy of the instructions that said give them a COLOR copy of the petitioners passport, but this list just says photocopy. I would give it to them in color anyway and sign it. The Thai government always has you sign all copies of everything.

The resulting Police Clearance letter is in English and addressed to The United States of America so there is no need to have this document translated.

The cost is 100 baht and when we did ours last month it took exactly 3 weeks and the report was mailed back to us using Thai Post EMS tracking. It does you no good because they do not give you the tracking number, but you must be at the house to receive and sign for the letter or go pick it up at the post office the next day. Be ready exactly 3 weeks after requesting the clearance to receive the letter at your fiance's home.

Straight from the Embassy Police checklist. This list does not say anything about the "Marital Status" document, but we brought it and they took it, I believe, so bring it.

• Passport with one photocopy
• Thai ID card with one photocopy
• House registration with one photocopy
• In case of name or surname change, name or surname change certificate is required with
one photocopy.
• Military service document (Sor Dor 8 or Sor Dor 43 or the certificate of completion of 3-year
or 5-year reserve officer training course, either of which needed for Thai male who is over the
age of 20 and Sor Dor 9 for applicant between the age of 17-19) with one photocopy.
• Marriage certificate or divorce certificate (if available) with one photocopy
• Requesting letter from the embassy of the country to which the applicant plans to travel. A
notice from the US Embassy regarding your case (i.e. a packet 3 cover letter) can be used for
this purpose.
This is the NOA2 and Embassy cover letter for packet #3 if you have it.
• A photocopied passport of your American petitioner.
• In case of a minor child applicant, the legal guardian has to be present to sign consent.

WARNING: The clearance center asked my fiance for a letter from me stating I wanted to marry her or I had asked her to marry me or some such clap-trap. I had to cobble something together and we mailed it off the next day using EMS tracking. It did not delay the process. It was the standard flavor of the day by the official at the receiving desk, "I'm going to ask them for something different today just to spice my day and their day up". This is not in any instructions anywhere, including the Police Clearance website when it was still working properly about a month ago.

Link from Embassy site for Police instructions: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/thailand/591452/iv/thaipolicecert.pdf

Here is the link to the Police Clearance Center, but all the links to the requirements are broken, except for one link I found that downloads a document with requirements in Thai.

1. Link to Police Clearance Center: http://www.pcscenter.sb.police.go.th/eng/index.php

2. Link to download requirements in Thai: http://pcscenter.sb.police.go.th/filedownload/infomation.pdf

NOTE: I have no idea why "MisioandNat" above said "packet 3" in post #8 because they do not need this. They would have no idea what is supposed to be in packet 3.

No. You walk away with them. Put another way, we did not leave any originals of anything with them, but you have to bring some original stuff as you can see in the list I provided.
