Getting married in Thailand

  2. Have the affidavit translated into Thai
    Once the affidavit has been issued you will need to have it translated into Thai.
  3. Have the affidavit authenticated and translation certified
    All Thai Registrars will require authentication of the diplomats’s signature and certification of the Thai translation. This must be obtained from The Legalisation and Naturalisation Division, Department of Consular Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
