Having done mine last month, its worth noting that you MUST have at least 3 months remaining on your visa. mine was done on a multi-entry O-A visa.
Hope this helps.

I had items 1, 3 and 4 but was only on a 60 tourist visa from Vientiene. Dont know how the G/F (now the missus) managed it as all discussion were in Thai at Nong Han Amphur (sure she paid some additional 'fee') But received my yellow book without any real problems.

This seems to be a moving target like many issues with Thailand, so let me give an update as of today.

I have been informed that I need to do the following, will let everybody know if this is successful.

1. Photocopy Passport
2. Get Embassy to certify passport is as per copy, get a lovely official stamp
3. Translate stamped copy passport, get another lovely stamp
4. Lodge paperwork at MFA in BKK, get another lovely stamp
5. Take certified paperwork to Amphur (complete with all lovely stamps)
6. Amphur calls after a few days that paperwork is acceptable
7. Attend Amphur with two witnesses over the age of 18 (I am taking headman and his assistance at my expense)
8. If all is well, issue Yellow Book and Pink card for a small fee.

My situation. Have type O visa, officially married, have TM30.

Looks like a 5,000 THB exercise with airfares and accommodation in BKK for one night.

The requirements are specific to the office that you are applying at. I got mine a few months ago in Ampur Non Sa-At. I did not need 2, 3, 4 and 5 though from submission to return was about a month as the official had a lot of other work.

The TM30 was never mentioned. SWMBO and I married in Thailand.

Years ago when I got my YB at the Udon Amphur, the translation of my passport done by the translation shop on next to Landmark/Tukcom (which just about everyone accepts locally) was all that was needed in addition to the photo copies and witnessing, no Bangkok embassy or MFA malarkey.

But if your list is from the current horses mouth, then I guess the Bangkok trip is required these days.

Forgot to mention in previous post that they also wanted a photograph of us together ( why, I have no idea as we were standing together at the desk) and also 2 local witnesses to verified the address is where I/we stayed (I am pretty sure they said 'not family' but locals.)
