For those wanting to get married in Thailand, they just need to follow certain considerations:
- If they want their wedding recognized as legal back home, they will need some proper paperwork prepared ahead of time. You will need to visit the local embassy (in Bangkok if you travel to Phuket) to get an official letter stating that you are both single and legally available for marriage. If divorced, you will need a proof of the divorce before the embassy can issue this letter.
- Once the documentation is signed, you need to go to the Thailand Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok and have it translated into Thai and officially stamped and sealed.
- Now you are prepared for a marriage license in Phuket Town. There will be more paperwork to complete before a license is issued and is valid back in your home country. Many engaged couples consider the assistance of the Bangkok Translation Services (BTS) to help them with the formalities of the wedding.
An agent can help handle all the paperwork for you, while allowing you and your spouse to enjoy a holiday at one of the best Phuket wedding resorts to commemorate your soon-to-be wedding.
