Glad to hear it worked out for him. Hopefully someone can answer your question regarding vehicle registration. However, I would imagine the yellow book would be accepted in lieu of the immigration letter. That's how it worked for me when I applied for my DL.

yellow book

Post by robytoby1960 » March 22, 2008, 3:50 am

My experience: I got the yellow tabien ban in 2003, with only copies of my passport and my wifes I.D. and her blue book,I only paid 10 BHT registration fee...since then I registered a car and two bikes in my name without any immigration docs! I sold one bike by using the same docs.

ok, any questions or reasons why not to get this book. it saves quite a bit of hassles. get one today. if it saves one trip to immigrations or land office for landlord letter, i think that is worth 10 baht and couple hours of boredom.

A friend used it the other day to get hi drivers license renewed at AEK. They wanted to send out to the circus on the Khan Kean highway until he showed them the book. How this all started for him u in the first palce, He also registered his bike with no problems adn no letters from imiigartion. That is definelty worth a little effort

Update on getting Yellow book. It is now necessary to get a letter from Immigration, similar to the one for obtaining driving license etc. To get this you must first obtain a letter from amphur asking immi to issue it. Amphur now ask for 4x passport sized photos as well. But as stated by others, still easy to do.
A seminar is taking place next week between amphur and immigration officials where one item on the agenda is making the possession of a yellow book compulsory to all holders of annual visas.This is to make control and tracking of immigrants for various purposes simpler. It will also make life easier for both license and car taxation offices.
I have pointed out to one of the speaking delegates that it could cut out the need for 90 day reporting.Don't know if any one will listen though.

Congratulatios. I had been wondering. What did you have to take with you in the way of documentation and pictures, etc?

My wife finally agreed to go to with me tomorrow, then we realized that tomorrow is May Day. Crud.

I figure that if Immigration is getting together with the Amphur, its (cynical, I know) to assure immigration's place in the food chain. Maybe after next week, this yellow book will become more difficult or expensive to obtain, so now there is an air of urgency.

Well I didn't notice a darn thing about immigrations at all. Now that being said I got the distinct feeling that different people handle different Moobaans. As usual that could make a difference. The guy thought I was bored so he let me look at pictures of guys that got thier book. They were all from this area. That is nothing more then a guess. I will say this he seems to be just a little happier after lunch :lol:

Ok this is to the best of knowledge this is a time I pretty much let the wife a handle everything and it worked out great..

Three photos

Your passport and visa tranlated to Thai, mine was done at Wittiaya School no problems whatsoever.

Copy of the house book and wifes ID card

You need a witness and copies of the ie hosue book and Thai Id Card.

As far as I can tell that was about it.

Thanks for your advice. We picked up my yellow book today.

Some notes to augment Bump's post:
The 3 photos are passport size & style. Bump had said that he got his photos at a photo booth at Tesco, but I got the wrong size. Fortunately, the fellow at the Amphur accepted some photos left over from a visa extension last year.

The passport and visa translation at Wittiaya School cost me 750 Baht. Translation took a couple of days in my case. http://www.pwtranslations.com/ They are on the East side of Udondusadee Road, just a couple of few hundred meters North of the Clock Traffic Circle, L10 on the map.

There is a photocopy service available at the Amphur.

It seems best to go to the Amphur early in the day. When we arrived the first time, we were told to go away and come back the next day because they were already busy that afternoon.

Once we got everybody and all the documents and copies together, it took about an hour for the fellow to interview my wife (I just sat there and smiled), type up the affidavits, and have us (my wife whose name is on the housebook for our house, her sister as witness, and me) sign them.

Under the heading of curious:
We expected to pay 20 or 30 baht, but were never asked for it.

Why would you need a landlord letter?I thought yellow books were only for homeowning falangs?

if you don't have the yellow book, you actually need a landlord letter, even though i may officially be your wife in same residence.

when i traded up cars last year, went to get the fill in the blanks license/registration letter of years past, and mr happy informed me they no longer do that, and i needed a landlord letter, from land office, back to imm., then back to land office. showing him my yellow book, he still said i needed a landlord letter, from ex wife/owner of all people, as if that was going to happen. went back to toyota, and he squared it away with yellow book/passport, picked up registration month later.

why one office has to verify another gov't office doc to be verified again is a bit beyond my rational thinking. of course the landlord would have to go with you, and if you don't say you moved in that day, he is charged 1000 baht fine for not filing foreign resident in house. just lovely. 8)

it made no pratical sense to me :?

Hi Stan, you don't have to own the house to get a yellow book -consider for a moment that very few foreigners own their own houses and very few of them own the land, for reasons discussed ad nauseam over the years.

It seems that you only have to live in the house and have witnesses (one of which is the owner) who can attest that you really live there. Apparently, a lot of variation in the requirements exists.

If they were all singing from the same hymn sheet it would not be so bad... But when getting DL, I followed the steps, go to police, got receipt for Tabian bann but guy in immigration didn't agree, back to land transport back to immigration and back to land transport. If it wasn't for g/f negotiating and dropping names I'd still be gong back and forward till everybody was happy... :roll: :roll: :roll:
