I brought my Thai wife to the USA as a permanent resident, now she is a US Citizen! Yeah! Long journey, as you all know.
We plan to go to Thailand over Christmas for a visit. She will show her US passport when she departs the US and show her Thai Passport when she re-enters Thailand. But her Thai passport is expired!
So, the question is should she get her Thai passport renewed via the Thai embassy is Los Angeles before returning, or just try to re-enter Thailand with her expired passport?
I am worried if we send her Thai passport to the Thai embassy in Los Angeles for renewal that renewal will change the passport number.
1) Should we renew her Thai passport before returning?
2) If we do renew it, will they change the passport # or remove the exit stamp?
TIA for any help with these questions!
