** If you wish to change your last name in Thai to be in accordance with your foreign passport (after marriage), you will need to do the following:
1 Bring a Personbevis document that shows a change of status or family status changed along with a marriage certificate to certify documents at the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Utrikesdepartementet - UD).
2 Bring documents No.1 (after being certified by UD) to certify the documents at the Royal Thai Embassy. (You can check the information on certification of documents at this website.)
3 Bring documents No. 2 to translate into Thai.
4 Bring the translated documents to certify the translation at the Department of Consular, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Thailand).
5 Contact the district office in Thailand to request for a change of last name and request a new ID card service there.
- If you wish to do a Thai ID card and passport on the same day, it is recommended that you make a reservation for both departments on the same day. Kindly reserve an ID card time slot first (takes 30 minutes). You must reserve a time slot for the passport department after the ID card time slot. (Make a reservation at the ID card department and passport department separately). When you have completed your ID card application process, you will receive a new card right away. Therefore, you can use the new ID card to proceed with the passport renewal at the passport booking time.
