certificate of birth name

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am getting the I-129f ready and noticed what might be a problem. When Danita went to her Province to get her documents they could not give her a copy of the original, it has long since been lost, and when the Provincial office made an official certificate of birth for her a few weeks ago they used her current name not her given name at birth ( yes, we already have her official document of name change). I dont think this would be a problem dealing with anything to do with the Thai government but i fear this will cause big problems with the US immigration. Am i correct in assuming that she needs to travel back the her province to get a certificate that has her given birth name on it? She seems to think that the small provincial office might not be that willing to help.

Thanks for your thoughts

Tim

I went through this mess. One of her parents will need to go to the Amphur where she was born with her. It's a major pain.

Birth Certificates

Available. The issuance of birth certificates in Thailand began in Bangkok in 1917. Records of birth are often lacking for people born in Bangkok before World War II and for those born in other areas of the country up until the 1970s. Birth Certificates are issued by "Amphur," (geographic subdivision roughly equivalent to a county in the U.S.) district authorities having jurisdiction over the place of birth. There may be a fee for this service.

A Thai citizen older than 15 and born in Thailand, whose birth was not registered, must present in its stead a household registration, together with a Thai national identity card ("bat prachachon"), and may also be required to submit additional proof of the claimed relationship

Basically you need the blue house book. Take that to the Amphur with one of the parents and they'll give you a paper that is equivalent to a birth certificate.
