get married in Thailand

I want to get married, but a civil wedding, not religious. I am from Spain and we want to come to Thailand for holidays and marry. What do I have to do to find a judge?

Hi Esther,

I am not sure about what the formalities are but I would suggest that you check with the Thai Consulate nearest you in Spain. They should be able to give you full details on what is required, i.e., paperwork, medical certificates (if any) and where and how to go about arranging to get married.

Dear Esther. It is very simple to get marriage certificate in Thailand. I am assuming that you will get marry in the hotel where you are planing to take your vacation. You can go to the district/provincial office called "umphur" before or after your ceremony. The hotel hostess/officer can point you to the right direction or hotel's diver can take you there. It would depending on the level of services that available at your hotel. You should contact them about your plans. You might want your marriage certificate translated into english and/or spanish with official seal before you return home also. Good luck.

I do not know what is needed to marry with a Thai, but it should be worthy. Thay women are among the most beautiful in the world. Of course, Esther, I know you are looking for a male Thai.

Best wishes from Mexico!

Some hotels you will find offer special packages that will include the whole wedding ceremony and necessary papers etc.

As suggested before check with your local Thai Embassy and with a knowledgable and reputable agent.

Good luck !

i have done this. simply go to your embassy and fill in statutory declaration form to enable you to marry here in thailand. take the form to a translation agency to write it in thai. take the english and thai version of the form to ministry of foreign affairs (you can get the address with full direction from your embassy). it will take 2 days for them to work on authentification. present the forms to the amphur office (district) anywhere in thailand. they will grant you the marriage contract written in thai. take this form to a translation agency to make it in english. take the english version to ministry of foreign affairs for authentification. take your marriage certificate to your embassy for registration. that's the end of it. it will probably cost you more or less 5k baht for all the documents work. best wishes.

Hi i'm getting married at end of may with my fiancee after 2 years, but i read on the british embassy website that for settlement in the u.k you have to apply 3 months before travel to the united kingdom but how can she apply now with no wedding documents? so will that mean she will not be able to come back home with me and she will have to wait 3 months?
thanks
