He is a corrupt dh, very hard to deal with and makes his own rules, all he really wants is money, he tried to scam me for 3000, offer him money you will get your book, or a few of us could join forces and lodge a complaint against him to get him removed, the reprucusions might not be worth it though...

Yes he's on the take,making problems for cash.no good trying to complain it'll only make things worse.ive got the same **** out here in nong wua so.the woman clearly hates farang.told my wife I was only marrying her for a visa and my mrs blew her out as I have retirement visa and better than marriage visa.then starts questioning her why my names on the title deeds of a propertywhen farang can't own land.wife said she should ask land office about that.it had sod all to do with her.some of the time they just don't know their job and completely cock things up.theres a helpline in bkk but don't ask me the number.persist and you will prevail.

Nong Han isn't much better but it's not only farangs where they cause problems. From what I've seen, they take great pleasure in getting the poorly educated isaan farm folk to run between village, Udon & Amphur for non existent bits of paper which they take back & joyfully present only to be told they now need something else. A bit like a treasure hunt with no prize. Oh & don't forget to keep collecting the head man who needs to take half a day out every time to witness everything on the wild goose chase too
May the bridges I burn light the path in front of me

I think you've hit the nail on the head.its so they get a warmth of importance.jumped up bloody council workers who think farang and farmers are below them.we sat there after lunch time for 20 minutes while the only one working the desk was dealing with a Thai.when she finished we went up and she said oh not have food yet,I go 1 hour.well thank you very much.they wanted my birth certificate and I said not have.i will fly back to uk and get new one from government and I'll be back in a few days...ok you do that.ffs....the other 4-5 staff have mastered the trick of sleeping at their desks with their eyes open.

Has anyone managed to obtain a 'yellow book' in Udon when they were not married? Tried years ago but would not issue.

applied for and got mine through our local Tambon (Nong Bua) Tessaban office several years ago.. No request was made for any money although the wife gave "lunch money" to the officer who processed the paperwork. The Tessaban people took the paperwork downtown for processing. I recall it took about two weeks to get the yellow book back. As it stood I'd have to say that I pretty much got it as a stand alone Farang on a retirement visa.. The wife and I have been married 43 years but the paperwork from way back when is so hosed up (misspelled names et al) that basically she processed me off her house book as a "tenant."

transferred from another province to Udon, coordinated by Tessabaan in Udon , all paper work signed off, taken to KK, took `15 minutes there and reissued there on the spot.

No mention of tea money at either location.

Needed translation of passport and Visa , old yellow book, new Tabian Baan and the normal rain forrest of copies

whenever i have to deal with government officials, i take the "phujai baan" with me.
this kind of official support spared me a lot of anger.
i came to the impression that government workers are more cautious when a "phujai baan" is involved.
tipping mr. nice guy with 500 baht is ok for the both of us and makes things run much smoother.
\:D/
ask your wife/gf if you don't know who's the "phujai baan" for your area and give it a try next time.

Tried to get a yellow book going today at Amphoe Phen but big boss wont do it unless you are married , while getting resident certificate in udon immigration they said you dont have to be married to get one but Phen boss not agree

Yes! Phen Amphur does NOT do things the same way as anyone else. I have been refused my Yellow Book several times although I am Married, and have my Thai Drivers Lic., A Letter from the Udon Thani Immigration stating that I LIVE in Thailand and at the Address listed in Amphoe Phen. As well as a Spousal Visa of curse. I am starting to think that the people at that office hate foreigners. So I am moving into a Condo in Udon Thani. The People in Phen are great, but that office sucks things best left unsaid.

Got mine in Somdet, Kalasin a few days ago. Not married, so had to jump through a few hoops. They do push the marriage angle. Can do straight away if married. 555. "Fee" requested was 600 baht. Should be free, but what do you do. They ask 20 baht from Thais to do Blue Book updates so everyone gets stung. Sorry about the hassles you guys have up there.

I got mine in khon Kaen many years ago, transferred from Lopburi. Now it is in Bangkok, even though I don't live there:)
