  1. A couple of pages back in this thread, several members of the January 2016 batch wrote about their timelines. Anyways, here's my timeline. MOI Interview to MOI approval took 1 year 5 months. After that it took 2 months to get approval of H.M. The King. 2 months later I did the Oath of Allegiance. Almost 4 months later my name was published in the Royal Gazette. 3 weeks later I picked up my Naturalisation Certificate. Obtained my Thai ID at the 1st of March 2016.
  2. OP's story is missing something. Either OP didn't bring his BA/ BSc or MA/ MSc or the aforementioned degree certificate wasn't certified by his embassy.
  3. A PGCEi, PGCE, Grad. Dip. Ed./ TP or any equivalent is not a degree certificate as stipulated in the Immigration regulations and therefore rejected as such.
  4. The document linked in the URL is outdated.
  5. Question about Teaching License waivers

    That one is outdated.
  6. RIP TTA

    Written in another thread.
  7. Ajarn Forum closed?

    Yup. As long as teachers hold a university degree, a TCT temporary teaching permit can be obtained for a maximum of 6 years (latest regulations). When you get a temporary teaching permit, you'll get your extension of stay (Immigration) and your work permit (DOE). All worry-free. Unless you have family in Thailand, foreign teachers generally don't stay longer than 2 to 4 years in Thailand. Because of little info is needed to work legally, Facebook groups give sufficient though sometimes superficial information. No need anymore to set up and maintain an individual discussion board.
  8. My wife was on a tabien baan upcountry while I was on a Bangkok tabien baan. No problems what so ever. Applied in 2009 though.
  9. All info in English is on the SSO website. http://www.sso.go.th/wpr/eng/index.html
  10. I wore a suit and necktie. At that time a deep dark blue one. If I had to do it now, I would wear black. My interview, and that of some other members, was held on 6 November 2013. The publication in the Royal Gazette of me and some other members was on 28 January 2016. The naturalisation papers could be picked up around half February 2016. I obtained my Thai ID in March 2016. While GarryP had to wait only 1 year, several of us had to wait for a bit more than 2 years.
  11. Masters Degree but no BA degree

    Same here. Happens a lot in the UK educational system. Unheard of in the USA and TH educational systems. Applied for my initial TCT teacher license in September 2011 and received it in November 2011. Applied for my second one in April 2016 and got the new one a month later.
  12. 28 January 2016 announcement in the RG. Sent pictures to SB on 8 February 2016. Picked up my naturalization documents on 18 February 2016.
  13. Congratulations. For your information, after my oath it took a little less than 4 months before it became published in the Royal Gazette. Best of luck.
