Police Certificate - expediting

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

an interesting experience which I wanted to share:


Understanding of obtaining a Thai police certificate before getting it: takes 3 weeks, no expediting available. If asked for money for "expediting" refuse. Those who paid still waited 3 weeks to get their certificate. Normal request was for 1000 baht.


Actual experience: fiancee visited the Bangkok police HQ on June 11th to request. I told her to just pay the bribe money. They asked 2000 baht, took her photo on site and the police cert was mailed on June 17th, received in her house a few days letter in Chiang Mai.


So contrary to my belief, this was certainly much faster than the normal expected 3 weeks processing time. Not that we needed faster processing, I simply didn't want an upset officer to hold up the application for a few extra weeks...

2000 Baht!!  Price has gone up, we paid 1500 in February and received the report in AoNang (Krabi) in 4 days.  As I remember, the officers (all female) didn't mention expedite, they just quoted the 1500.  I was aware of the true 100 baht cost, but like Zoltan, we just wanted it done and over and $30 more at that stage of things just wasn't a big deal.
