I have 2 questions concerning the marriage extension. I would ask immigration but I am not sure how reliable their answers will be. I want to be as prepared as possible so I do not have to make a return trip to Immigration because I do not have all my ducks in a row.

1. How many copies of the complete marriage extension need to be submitted? Some poster say 1 and some say 2.

2. How many un-related witness are required to accompany us to Immigration on the day of application. Again some say 1 and others say 2.

Don't know the answer to #1, but I've always only had one witness, and that works.

And a follow on from my OP. Had a call yesterday from Immigration now they want me to make a transaction at my bank and have my bank book updated for them to copy. Take 100 bht out or put 100 bht in is all you need I was told.
Did the deed took the book to the office where they took a couple of copies.
I feel sorry for the IO's, it looks like they are sent these requests from BKK but aren't told the why's and wherefore's... you can see the frustration on their faces as they apologised for all the delays. One IO told my wife they have over 100 people to call to get these updates from.
Another week to wait for my final stamp in the passport, maybe. Think I'll up to a retirement next time.

Normal sane countries only ever give you 1 marriage certificate , not an updated copy every year
It is not a marriage certificate. It is a record in the Thai database of marriages that you are still married. The Thai marriage certificates are the pretty ones.

It is extremely unlikely to be on the same network as the immigration records as it needs rather less security.
yeh probably ok to most people but to me a bit crazy . was with my wife and boys getting same visa from same officers who have known me for 10 years . Took me 8 hours and about 200 kms driving because immigration could not check if i was divorced . They could have just phoned the office and given them the number off my old kor sor 2 and they could have just told them or emailed /faxed it to them , would take 10 minutes and saved me 6 hours and 100 kms or even better they could have told me on my last 90 day report which was on jan 28 when i asked if there were any new documents needed for my new extension in a few weeks and was told no
what is the equivalent document in other countries because to me it is just an entry in the amphur to say you have got married ?
To repeat It is a record in the Thai database of marriages that you are still married. AFIK the UK doesn't have an equivalent

If you were in immigration when you were told you could have gone to the nearest Ampur to get the up to date one.
dont understand ? when i was in immigration?I was in immigration and was told i could get one at the nearest amphur but they could not find it on the pc as i stated making me go to the office in which i registered the marraige , lucky it was not bangkok . The whole point of what i was saying as an immigration office they shouyld be able to check on their pc on the amphur website to see if i am divorced or not

Immigration at the local level does not have access to the Ampur computer network. The Ampur computer network does not have a web interface. So no they could not check on your behalf.

There seems to be some problem with your marriage registration documents that you need to get fixed as it is standard practice to go to the most convenient Ampur or Ket and they will be able to print a current Kor Ror 2 or Kor Ror 22.

The problem you had was not the fault of the immigration office but of the Ampur, so you have a justified beef with the Ampur for messing things up, but none with immigration.
