I would assume the exact opposite to a "death certificate. I must admit I receive three pensions every month from different suppliers , including the govt and I have never been asked to prove I am, still alive by any of them and I am knocking on eighty. :-$
Ageing is a privilige denied to many .

As they say TB, your bl**dy lucky mate :lol:

I've had to get one filled out, witnessed and returned every year I've been here as it "safeguards the interests of the pensioners in the scheme" :roll:

At least I've now got them used to accepting a scaned copy sent by e-mail (it had to be returned by post years ago and got lost twice)

It has to be witnessed by:=
A clerk at the town hall (for residents of France)
Minister of Religion (don't think shaving head and sitting in a wat for a few weeks years coz mummy said it will get the family a few merits counts)
Police Officer (yeah right, in Thailand?)
A Bank Official (Bangkok Bank refuse to have anything to do with it as it's not banking business)
Your Doctor (Dont have personal doctors in Thailand)
A Notary Public
A Commissioner of Oaths
A Justice of the Peace
A Solicitor or Lawyer
An official from your National Embassy or the British Embassy

Most people receiving pension from a european country are requested to send in a yearly Life Certificate. The form the Swedish "Pensionsmyndigheten" sends you can read:

Pensionsmyndigheten accepts life cedificates issued by Pensionsmyndigheten, Försäkringskassan, a Swedish embassy, a Swedish consulate, Church of Sweden, a foreign social insurance administration, a notary public, a foreign police authority or a foreign authority responsible for population registration.

[-X Udon Thani Tourist Police Station (55/55 Naresuan Rd, Udon Thani)
take a fee of 300 bath and without receipt!

If you go to Ampur in downtown they do not bargain or want tips, but they
charge 30 bath and insert this in a log book![/u][/b]

Ps. For me, passport and yellow book and 30 bath workt okey at AMPUR!

Seems like it's scramble on pricing! :confused: How many farangs need this service in Thailand?

According to reliable sources, there are some offices that takes 1.000 bath

Maby more "Life Cerifcates" have more info about this ?

Are you sure about the fee LenArt?

The "Tourist Police Volunteer Team Secretary" did not mention any fee being charged in the OP.

Perhaps the OP would like to explain this oversight or LenArts missinterpretation of what is happening?

I can't believe that the Tourist Police who are there to help us would charge a fee for doing their duty, so I'm sure it is all a missunderstanding

In the UK Police sign Life certificates as a service to the public. I know i did it so many times. The recipient were normally elderly and very grateful. here it would seem that the Tourist Polkice see a way to make money , not customer service but customer scam.
I agree if the Amphur sign for Baht 30 and enter details in a register, why pay the Tourist Police vast sums of money for a service most countries provide free ( except of course Thailand ) .

Luckily I do not need one yet, but when I do I will steer clear of the Police. As an aside being registered with the BE, I have signed many here for UK citizens and my signature has been accepted, maybe the rules are different in other countries, that I don't know.

Hey, let a friend sign seems to be asking for trouble! Would the Swedish authorities have the knowledge of this, I am quite sure that they would do everything to force us to go to the embassy in BKK because they would certify our life! AThis I do not consider to be an option for me! Ampur and 30 bath will be my choice! =D>
