Yellow Tabien Bahn

Recommended Posts

Greetings, and Happy New Year to you all.

Over the past couple of months i have been gathering the documents required to submit with the application for a Yellow Tambien Baan. They are:

Copy of passport & certified translation (of main page).

Copy & certified translation of my birth certificate.

Certified copy of my marriage certificate.

Copy of my retirement visa.

Letter from Embassy (UK)+ certified translation.

Copy of Thai driving licence (car & motorbike).

Copy of wife's ID

Copy of wife' blue Tambien Baan...every page.

Family photograph.

6X photos of myself.

My wife had previously (late Nov) called into the Amphur office....(Prachon Chai...Buriram).....and spoke to the chap at the front desk. He was aware of the existance of the Yellow Tambien Baan...and wrote a list of the requirements for me.

My wife and I went to the Amphur on Jan 3rd to submit my application. Prior to going, my wife called and spoke to the head man in the Amphur....to make sure that he was available. It was very crowded and the chap on the front desk gave us a ticket to go straight through to the head honcho's office at the back. Well........this guy did not want to know a thing. He was hostile from the very start. He claimed to know nothing about the Yellow Tambien Baan. ....and sent us out ...to wait.

So wait we did.....and 2 hours later we were called to this chap's office again. There was no change in his attitude and I could see that no amount of pleasantrys and fact producing on my wifes part was going to change things. He asked why I wanted the Tambien Baan.....and then said that my passpoet was good enough for me.....being farang. We left empty handed. At no time was my wife or I discourteous to anybody.

My questions are: What is my next best approach? The Amphur in Buriram town ?

Does my application have to be submitted in the Amphur where my house is?

I look forward to any replies,

Regards.......Off road

sorry to hear that you came across a moron such as this.

Here is a picture of one in this thread

https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/index.php?sh...2&hl=yellow. Officially, they are called a Tor. Ror 13 (see top right hand corner.

take it to show him. He probably wants a bribe from you. Bloody hill billies.

If he wants to know why you want one, tell him you need it as an offical Thai ID to show you have residency in Thailand, to open bank accounts etc etc, and that it is needed for applying for Thai citizenship which you hope to apply for one day.

I had mine issued at the Banglamung Amphur in Chonburi.

From memory the list is pretty much as you have described.

I did have a problem because the Thai version of my name on the Thai marriage certificate was different to that on other documents, and I had to send the stuff back to Bangkok to get it re translated and certified.

It took a while and several visits , but we got there in the end, and I do not recall any animosity on the part of the officials.

My guess is that your guy either can't be bothered, doesn't know what to do, is anti farang, wants some "inducement" or a combination of some or all of the foregoing.

Good luck. :o

I am aware of a few members here that needed to grease the wheels a bit to get it done, around 2,000 Baht to the Tea Fund would do the trick.

Hello,

Many thanks for your prompt replys.

I have printed out the pic of the front cover of the Yellow Tambien Baan to add to my file.

My wife did mention to the guy in Prachon Chai that a neighbour in "my" village already was in posession of a Yellow Tambien Baan. This he had when he had a condo in Pattaya.....issued in Banglamung......and then transferred to his house when he sold the condo. The guy in the Amphur even suggested to my wife to go and apply in Banglamung .....and get this.....to lie to get this document.

At no time was there any suggestion of him putting his hand out. He just simply was not going to do it....it was too much trouble...and he told my wife to come back in October!

Regards, Off road

Yo there Off Road,

I am the guy that Off Road refers to in his village who came from Banglamung.

From my experience Off Road.............yes you have to apply for the book in the Amphur, or possibly Changwat, where your home is. The reason I am pretty certain on this is that when I moved home from Banglamung Office to Buriram, well I actually saw the head of Banglamung Office about changing my address. Obviously in Chonburi they are much more familiar in dealing in such matters. She explained to me, in rather good English as well, that I would have to go to Buriram amphur to change my address. She did however give me a letter from her office explaining that I had left the address in Banglamung and also placed a red stamp in my exisiting yellow book.

When I went to the Prakhon Chai office and saw the head honcho there, don't know if it was the same one now, as this was 2006, I produced my yellow book and the letter from the Banglamung office. It was obvious that he was unsure of what to do and rang the head of Banglamung office for instructions etc, via the number on my accompanying letter from there. However..................on receiving those instructions he explained to my wife that the red stamp in the book actually cancels that one and I would be issued with a new one....................he turns around and pulls a new yellow book out of the filing cabinet drawer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Therefore my guess is that you caught this guy on a bad day.

I would suggest you drive up to Buriram city and try the amphur there Off Road, the most they are going to do is re-direct you back to Prakhon Chai.........but you may get lucky.............I hope so...........take care..... :o

Well, I finally got DH to go in with me to get a yellow tabien ban.

I don't know if Koh Phangan is fairly easy (he had a book full of yellow tabien ban applications) or if it was just because my husband knew the man doing the processing.

We needed to provide: marriage license (we were married in Thailand so the Thai language license was not a problem), copy of my passport, copy of his tabien ban and id card, and my husband wrote my name, my parents names and address in the US down in Thai. No witnesses, no translations of anything. Took about 15 minutes and cost 10 baht :o

Well several have gotten them in Udon, with no problems to speak of and no tea money the fee is 200 baht. I understand there may have been ome changes in proceedure a to requiring a letter from the Amphur to immigrations to get a letter from them. But that is just rumor. I'm going in next week to check on that and start my process. I will try to post my findings when I have checked on it, if I remember :o

Yes a renter can get the book all it really means is that you live at a certain location, but it helps with registering vehicles obtaining licences getting utililities in your name

Did my first day on mine today, supposed to pick up tommorow. Went smooth but he had beer for lunch and talked me to death for two hours.

No letter from immigration asked for. No tea money thus far.

So if I own a house on a company name, I can also apply for the yellow tambien ban? If, one needs proof of residence from the embassy...what is it exactly they are asking for? I am trying to establish a yellow tambien baan to proove to my embassy I live here.....The administrative run around is in effect once again!
