I had exactly the same problem with RBS Jersey.
I emailed them a notarised copy done in Udon by a registered Notary.
They would not accept it as they need to be able to check the credentials of the Lawyer , Accountant etc in the UK.
The only route is trip to Bangkok & British embassy.
My bank stated they would accept the credentials of an Australian accountant.
My bank only needed the main page which was copied & certified by the Embassy.

That might work in the case of proof for taxation but in my case the account had been frozen & I had to apply to reopen it so I could get my money.

Hi, sorry to crash this forum - I hope you can help!
Natwest bank requires me to send a certified copy of my passport:
Your supporting documentation can be certified by any one of the following:-
1. A member of staff at your local branch, your relationship manager or private banking manager (if applicable)
2. A lawyer or solicitor who is listed on a law society or bar association website
3. An accountant who is listed on the lnstitute of Chartered Accountants or equivalent recognised professional
body
4. Embassy official consulate or high commission.

1 = natwest = no
2 - any recommendations in the chonburi/pattaya/bang saen area?! (I saw Tamada mentioned this before)
3. are Thai accountants usually registered in this way?
4. expensive and time consuming and a disaster.

My other Q is do they need ALL pages? seems a bit ridiculous but am imagining the answer is 'YES'.

If you can help me with the best route to sorting this problem I would really appreciate it.

Many Thanks
Wee
Natwest accepted the passport certification that is issued by the British Embassy in Bangkok.

If they want Thai address certification, where neither property or utility bills are in your name, the only thing they accepted was a notarized translation of my Thai drivers license (Thai address is on the back). I used the lawyer on Naklua Soi 12 who is also a Thai Notary.
