A few questions Thai specific

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

We are currently in the first stage of the K1 process. We have received our NOA1 and are patiently waiting for NOA2. Along the way we have encountered a few questions that I was wonder if any might be able to answer.

1.) My SO is not and has never been married. We know that she must obtain a Single Status Certificate. She currently lives in Bang Na but she is from Khon Kaen. She has told me that she can only obtain this by going back to Khon Kaen to get it. Can she go to any local district office (Thai Amphur) to receive this or must it be in her home city?

2.) We are trying to get ahead of the game and get her in to have all of her immunizations before she will need them at the Medical Examination. She doesn't have any records of her own so we are just assuming she will need everything. With that in mind, does anyone know what the approximate cost would be and if there is a need to return to have additional immunizations that could not be administered on the same day?

3.) As far as translation of documents. I have read that she must have her Birth Certificate translated. Will she also have to have the Police Report and Single Status Certificate translated as well? Also, is there anyone you might recommend for these services?

Thanks in advance for you help and if I wasn't clear about anything, please let me know. Thanks

Hello all,

We are currently in the first stage of the K1 process. We have received our NOA1 and are patiently waiting for NOA2. Along the way we have encountered a few questions that I was wonder if any might be able to answer.

1.) My SO is not and has never been married. We know that she must obtain a Single Status Certificate. She currently lives in Bang Na but she is from Khon Kaen. She has told me that she can only obtain this by going back to Khon Kaen to get it. Can she go to any local district office (Thai Amphur) to receive this or must it be in her home city? My fiance had to go to his home Amphur to get his single certificate, and he had to have 2 witnesses with him

2.) We are trying to get ahead of the game and get her in to have all of her immunizations before she will need them at the Medical Examination. She doesn't have any records of her own so we are just assuming she will need everything. With that in mind, does anyone know what the approximate cost would be and if there is a need to return to have additional immunizations that could not be administered on the same day? We tried to get a head start on vaccines too cause my fiance had no records, and I was worried that it would slow things down later if they determined he needed a lot and it would be too many vaccines for one time. So we went to Bangkok Pattaya hospital and met with a dr in the health clinic. He advised us that for someone of my fiance's age he would need tetanus, mumps, measles, rubella; he also recommended hep A and hep B. He got the tetanus, mumps, measles, and rubella on the spot...and a blood test to check for hep A & B antibodies. Then he went back to the hospital twice over the course of a month to get the hep boosters. Anyway, he now has a vaccination record to take to the physical. I suspect they'll wan to give him an influenza vaccine when he finally goes for the physical, but they weren't giving that when we went in June. The series of injections was expensive...I think about $250. But he's set now. I chatted with someone recently who's fiance's interview as delayed because the finace needed too many vaccinations to be administered at one time.

3.) As far as translation of documents. I have read that she must have her Birth Certificate translated. Will she also have to have the Police Report and Single Status Certificate translated as well? Also, is there anyone you might recommend for these services? Birth certificate and single certificate must be translated to English. Police Clearance is issued in English (if it is clean) so need to translate that. The translation services are literally everywhere...easy to find. I'm not sure who my fiance used, but he was very picky and talked to a lot of people. He wanted express service and he wanted quality...the last time he had translation done the translator got his name wrong and that taught him a lesson! My fiance went to BKK to take care of the translation.

Thanks in advance for you help and if I wasn't clear about anything, please let me know. Thanks

Everyone has been saying that obtaining the police clearance certificate is the most time intensive. The Embassy says you must have the packet 3 letter before applying, but others say that the Noa 2 is enough. But apparently your fiance will need a signed copy of your passport along with the Noa 2 to request the police certificate. Apparently it can take up to 5 weeks to obtain...there are conflicting reports as to whether it can be obtained faster with a tip. But that's the thing you ought to be prepared to jump on as soon as you can.

Wow David, that is good advice! Do you know how long the clearance is valid before it would have to be done again?

Hi Scott!

I believe the Police Clearance Certificate is good for 6 months. Be sure to read as much about it as you can on the Embassy's website. The expiration is a good reason to wait until you have NOA 2 in hand...by then you'll be able to predict (more or less) when the interview is likely to take place.

Best regards,

David

1.) My SO is not and has never been married. We know that she must obtain a Single Status Certificate. She currently lives in Bang Na but she is from Khon Kaen. She has told me that she can only obtain this by going back to Khon Kaen to get it. Can she go to any local district office (Thai Amphur) to receive this or must it be in her home city?
- Yes, she need to get it from the district where she has her name in the household registry(ทะเบียนบ้าน). But if she feels like it is impossible for her to go back to her home district. She can ask somebody to move her name into their household registry that is closer or in Bang Na so that she can just obtain the certificate without traveling too far. But the problem is the 2 witnesses that she need to have with her. What if Bang Na district require her parents to be witness then they will have to travel to Bangkok to do it for her? Which I'm sure it will be harder than that she just go back to Khon Kaen. (Always call the district office first to make sure who can be witnesses for her, each districts are different)

2.) We are trying to get ahead of the game and get her in to have all of her immunizations before she will need them at the Medical Examination. She doesn't have any records of her own so we are just assuming she will need everything. With that in mind, does anyone know what the approximate cost would be and if there is a need to return to have additional immunizations that could not be administered on the same day?

- In fact she doesn't need to have her immunizations ahead of time if money is not the problem. On the medical examination date at either Bumrungrad international hospital or Bangkok hospital they will give her shots that she need for a visa interview. But there is a problem because as we all know that there are more than one shot required for each vaccination. Which means that if she get the vaccination at her medical examination date she will still need to get the rest later in America which probably a lot more expensive. Plus the cost of getting vaccination in those two hospital I mentioned above will be more expensive than she get it some where else. I recommend her to go to Queen Saovabha Memorial Institut (สถานเสาวภา) as this place is known as the biggest vaccination center in Thailand for cheaper price. Also not that hard for her to travel from Bang Na as they do have MRT/BTS to get there. Below are the vaccination price lists that I note in a book for my case. I believe that your fiance doesn't need as much as me (I did above the requirement. If she is not going to work or study in Health care then only MMR, Tdap and Varricella are required.)

- Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B : I got the vaccine named Twinrix which combine both HepA and B in each shot. 3 shots are required at 0,1,6 month it cost 1,150 Baht each shot.

- Influenza : 1 shot - 300 Baht

- MMR( Combination of Measles,Mumps,Rubella) : 2 shots are required at 0,1 month - 250 Baht each shot.

- Tdap ( Combination of Tetanus anddiphtheria toxoids, Pertussis) : 3 shots are required at 0,1,6 - 650 Baht each shot

- Meningococcal : 1 shot - 1,200 Baht

- Varricella : I did Varicella blood test because I had it before. The result came out that I had antibiotic so I paid around 500 Baht for the lab. Buf if your fiance don't have antibiotic for that it should be 1,200 Baht each shot. 2 shots are required.

As my completed vaccination I paid about 7,000-8,000 Baht. Then another 2,755 Baht for medical exam. Sound pricey but very worth it at the end. I asked a friend who didn't do any of vaccination prior medical exam and she paid about 6,500 which included 2,755 Baht for medical exam and the rest for the first shot of MMR, Tdap and influenza. Which I think that is way more expensive if she plans to complete her immunizations.

3.) As far as translation of documents. I have read that she must have her Birth Certificate translated. Will she also have to have the Police Report and Single Status Certificate translated as well? Also, is there anyone you might recommend for these services?

- BC need to be translated and notarized for AOS after you get married.

- Single Status Certificate used to be accepted without translation. But in the past couple months lots of poeple got G221 at the interview for not translate and not getting notarized in English. So I highly recommend you to translate it.
- Police Clearance is originally issued in English.

There is a cheap place to translate all these documents and notarize service at the Thai consular at Changwattana(สถานกงศุล). It cost only like 500-700 Baht per page. But from Bang Na to Changwattana in BKK working day it could take like 2-2.30 hours each way from the traffic (I live in Bang Na as well). So I think she can just search google for translation business then scan or mail her documents to them would be a lot easier. The one I used cost me 1,500 Baht per page with fully notarized. Try to find one cheaper than 1,500 Baht if possible.

- Tdap ( Combination of Tetanus anddiphtheria toxoids, Pertussis) : 3 shots are required at 0,1,6 - 650 Baht each shot

- Meningococcal : 1 shot - 1,200 Baht

- Varricella : I did Varicella blood test because I had it before. The result came out that I had antibiotic so I paid around 500 Baht for the lab. Buf if your fiance don't have antibiotic for that it should be 1,200 Baht each shot. 2 shots are required.

As my completed vaccination I paid about 7,000-8,000 Baht. Then another 2,755 Baht for medical exam. Sound pricey but very worth it at the end. I asked a friend who didn't do any of vaccination prior medical exam and she paid about 6,500 which included 2,755 Baht for medical exam and the rest for the first shot of MMR, Tdap and influenza. Which I think that is way more expensive if she plans to complete her immunizations.

3.) As far as translation of documents. I have read that she must have her Birth Certificate translated. Will she also have to have the Police Report and Single Status Certificate translated as well? Also, is there anyone you might recommend for these services?

- BC need to be translated and notarized for AOS after you get married.

- Single Status Certificate used to be accepted without translation. But in the past couple months lots of poeple got G221 at the interview for not translate and not getting notarized in English. So I highly recommend you to translate it.

- Police Clearance is originally issued in English.

There is a cheap place to translate all these documents and notarize service at the Thai consular at Changwattana(สถานกงศุล). It cost only like 500-700 Baht per page. But from Bang Na to Changwattana in BKK working day it could take like 2-2.30 hours each way from the traffic (I live in Bang Na as well). So I think she can just search google for translation business then scan or mail her documents to them would be a lot easier. The one I used cost me 1,500 Baht per page with fully notarized. Try to find one cheaper than 1,500 Baht if possible.

Wow, This is really good information as well. Thank you so much!
