Our Marriage Services in Thailand are a focused service in Bangkok, we do not offer wedding services in places such as Pattaya and Phuket due to time delays and local regulations. We advise clients to marry in Bangkok for the ease of the service.
Legal Steps for a Perfect Wedding in Thailand:
- Notification of Marriage: The initial step involves submitting a marriage notification at your local district office or amphur. This formalizes your intention to marry and is essential for both Thai and non-Thai couples.
- Verification of Eligibility: Our seasoned legal team will assist you in verifying your eligibility to marry under Thai law. This involves ensuring you meet the legal age requirement (18 years old) and are not closely related to your partner.
- Affidavit of Freedom to Marry: Non-Thai citizens need to obtain an affidavit of freedom to marry from their respective embassy or consulate in Thailand. This document certifies that you are legally free to marry. Your wedding consultant will assist in booking the Embassy appointment.
- Translation and Notarization: All non-Thai documents must be translated into Thai and notarized for official use. Our experts handle this process to ensure accuracy and compliance. Your wedding consultant will arrange to meet you or collect documents from you from your embassy and will have them translated and certified by the MFA, Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This saves you long hot days running around Bangkok dealing with documents and government offices when you could be relaxing with your loved one.
- Witnesses: You’ll need at least two witnesses present during the marriage registration. Usually, the Amphur will supply witnesses where required for a small fee.
- Marriage Registration: The official marriage registration takes place at the local district office. Your wedding consultant will accompany you to ensure a smooth process.
- Certificate Issuance: After completing the registration, you’ll receive an official marriage certificate issued in both Thai which you can then chose to have translated and certified should you wish via your wedding consultant.
