How long for Thai Police Clearance Certificate

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancée has everything ready for submitting her packet 3 documents except for the Thai Police Clearance Certificate which she is waiting for. They said they would mail the certificate to her.

For those who have received a Thai Police Clearance Certificate, how long did it take?

I retained a lawyer, he sent in our Packet 3 without the police certificate, we're still waiting for it now, he says my fiance can just bring it with her to the interview. I'm pretty sure the consulate will understand you not wanting to wait 3 weeks for a piece of paper when they'll eventually see it anyway at the interview.

FYI, our Thai Police Certificate took exactly 3 weeks. If you are trying to move as quickly as possible through the process, either pay for faster processing or applyfor the Thai Police Certificate as soon as you receive your NOA2.

100-200baht...police clearance in 3 weeks. You will be given the opportunity to request 3 day service with a small donation...1500-2000baht.Unless the rules have changed, my wife brought her passport, NOA-2, and NVC letter to be sure, did not even have the "free to marry certificate" yet, which is required to be submitted with the packet 3 or brought to the interview.

According to recent information, people that did not have "marital status certificate" were turned away at police clearance and asked to bring it. YMMV, of course.

Just got ours last week. Took 3 weeks exactly, even though it was dated a week earlier, and even though they told my fiance they would not mail it with tracking, they actually did mail it with tracking and signature required. I had to sign for it. (I live here in Thailand with my Fiance).

One other thing they asked from my fiance, which I have informed the Embassy about, because it is NOT mentioned in their PDF Police Clearance instructions. These idiots wanted a letter from me, signed by me, saying I had asked her to marry me or some such stupid thing. I just copied my "Intent to Marry" letter I sent with my petition and changed the wording a little and we mailed it EMS the next day.

I'm chalking this up to the old saying "This is Thailand" and whatever official she talked to that day decided he would throw in a curve ball just to have fun.
