Has anybody been to Udon Immigration lately? If so does anyone know who the new guy is that butts into everything and who's goal in life seems to be ruining Udon's friendly immigration reputation?
Just been to Immigration Udon to renew my extension & wife's.
Had the unfortunate experience of being dealt with by the above.
No problem with my extension all done.
I took all the same paperwork for my wife as I have done for the last 9 years.
First time I was told to get the Marriage certificate translated into Thai which I did.
After that no problem for 9 years.
Same paperwork every year.
Today I got my extension which by the way did not need a Letter from Kasikorn Bank just a 3 months statement printed and stamped by the bank.
It was no problem and accepted.
My wife was refused an extension as the person above wanted the Marraige certificate authenticated by the Indonesian Embassy. She is Indonesian.
I told him they would not do this as the Document was Stamped by the Indonesia Govt and was an official Document.
I had the original with me.
He then said I needed to get it approved by the Ministry Of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok.
I thought that you only needed this done if you married in Thailand.
Maybe Sometimewoodworker can confirm this with his Knowledge of Immigration rules.
Has anybody with a Non Thai wife (such as Laos) had the same problem in the past.
My wife has been tied to my visa for 9 years as she is not yet 50 years old.
