Depends on what you intend to use the certificate for.
If it is for use at immigration to get a visa you need to get it certified by the Australian embassy.
Then translated into Thai by a Agency accepted by The Ministry of Foreign affairs and then certified by them in Bangkok.

My marriage certificate is British but I had to send it to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office to verify it was genuine (apostille) and they stamped and signed it. Then it had to go to the Consular Section of the Royal Thai Embassy for legalisation and verification, once this was done I had it couriered back to Thailand for use in applying for a marriage visa. This cannot be done in Thailand.
The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

You really need to Email: authentications@dfat.gov.au and enquire as different countries have different requirements. As vincemunday has said for a British certification the paperwork MUST be completed in London. Australia may be different.

You still have to get it translated into Thai & officially authorised at the Ministry of Foreign affairs in Bangkok if you want to use it for a visa.

Thanks, I seen many posts about it on thai visa and things with little peices of information which are all diffrent. My embasey seems to be able to certify in bangkok but also gave me only a small amount of information. They did give me a list of translators at least.

Does the Ministry of Foreign, Amphur or Thai immigration require my passport to be Translated ? I found an article (this is for new marriges)

SSWW. Vince was married in the UK, getting the marriage certified in Thailand verified might just be a little bit different than if you were married in Thailand and trying to get the local Embassy/Consulate to verify it. Never ever heard of people having to go back to the UK to verify their Thai marriage.

Thank you for the heads up, I didn't know that but I will now get that done, very much appreciated.

You should ask the Amphoe exactly which documents they need and in what format. You may need your passport translated and will probably need your parents names in Thai as well.

Vince you might want to call in PDC Visa services in Preecha Market.

Tel Khun Aoy 0899447904.

I have had a problem with my wife's Visa which needs our marriage certificate done at the Ministry of Foreign affairs.

She told me they can do this but I first have to get the marriage certificate officially endorsed by the Indonesia Embassy.

She said it can be done over the Internet & post but I did not ask for a price as I still have to gt the certificate endorsed.

Might save you a trip to Bangkok and all the hassle but you have to find out if it is worth it.

This is a Lady who runs a Translation Service (pwtranslations) in Udon Thani. I have a feeling she may also be a Thai Public Notary, but can't be sure.

I used her Services a year ago. She translates documents for legal purpose, speaks perfect English (if there is such a thing), is very professional and also is very reasonable in her charging. I spoke with her on a number of issues and reviewed a number of Thai written documents with her, at her office, for over one hour and she charged me B 1,000.

Her name is Ms. Prachoom Wittaya and her email address is pwtranslations@gmail.com. Her office is right next to TUKCOM Landmark Building and if you type pwtranslations into "Google Map Udon Thani", it will show you exactly where.

Good luck.

What was the outcome.
Is she approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
As far as I know and someone please correct me if I am wrong.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a list of approved translators and do not accept translations from anyone else.

It means that Vince has said needs to get his Certified Marriage Certificate translated into Thai.
Then he needs it Certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

He was visiting the Translator lady yesterday as his first port of call.
So if he did visit her what was the outcome / end product of the conversation.
I would think he would have the Common Sense to ask if the Translation by the above was acceptable by the said Ministry.

If not then another Approved Translator in Bangkok would have to be found.

As I said above please correct me if I am wrong about the list of approved translators only being accepted by them

I did answer but it got swamped above, I've been rough lately and haven't yet been into town but I've asked her via messenger if she can do it, she's usually pretty quick getting back so I'll let you know.

Mate I think better to ring the number on the business card pipozz attached.
I think as Vince said he’s been crook lately, so may not get there.
They speak perfect English and will provide your answers quickly.
I’ve used them for translation and certifying docs through their lawyer. Very good.

Thanks for that.
I am in the same situation as you except I do not have the Certified Document from the Indonesia Embassy yet same as the original poster.
I have 10 months to sort it out not sure about the original poster as he can get his cert done at the Aussie Embassy same as me at the Indonesia Embassy when I can eventually contact them by e mail or registered post.
