    Leaving Thailand

    Sorry do not have time to search

    Leaving soon and want to thake this off my mind

    Are a new Thai passport enough for leaving Thailand, or do we need something from Immigration ?

    The Kids have Danish passports for entering Denmark and the wife a visa

    I have asked Khon Kaen Immigration but they know nothing and seems to make up rules as they go

    Thanks in advance

    As long as the kids have passports, Thai or other, immigration doesn't care, we go to OZ, now and then and to Lao for a break sometimes.
    As long as they stamp out on the Thai passports, all is fine.

    Yes, my daughters leave Thailand with their Thai passports and enter the UK with their British ones. So just the passport upon departure is fine.

    As long as they are with the Mum you will not have a problem. Its when a Farang tries to take 2 thai looking kids out they get the shits up.

    Never had a problem in the 10+ times I have travelled with my twins alone internationally. Just have the passports, tickets and boarding passes.

    Should have put "can" get the shits up when travelling on a 1 way ticket perhaps?

    Did not have that experience as the wife expects me to bring them back.

    Thai passports out, Danish passports in. Left alone with my 2 last year but got a 'consent' letter to leave from their mum from the local Amphur first.

    No issue with not having an foreign entry/exit stamp in the Thai passport when they return then?

    No, never been asked, if they did ask you show them the other passport.

    Problem can occur if you don't stamp out on the Thai passport.
    When my youngest first arrived in Thailand, she was on an OZ passport, we went and got her a Thai passport. Stamped out at Chong Mek on the OZ passport, but took about an hour to sort out returning on the Thai passport.

    I left with my 8 week old son and it hardly raised an eyebrow at the airport, one customs guy did ask for his birth certificate but when I told him that it's packed away in the main luggage he said ok and ushered me to the front of the que, no problems

    Would think if the kids got a western passport in the fathers name, it's his child[s], not easy to claim a western passport.

    The one that has trouble traveling is my wife, she has kept her Thai name, on her Thai ID and passport, kids have my name on everything, passports, birth certs. and house book.

    Easy to prove the kids are mine, not so easy for the wife, so it works both ways.

    Think my 7 year old needs an ID card now and it will be in my name, doubt the wife could cross the border into Lao without me there.

    He had a valid British passport issued by the consulate in Bangkok so there was no need for a birth certificate, they have no right to demand it anyway.

    We are home.

    Was a stress full journey with the wife having second thoughts at the last minute, which brought me to the edge.

    Note: Bring wife's return ticket if she is on a visa.

    Check in and passport control in Schengen will ask for it

    I did. Lucky me.

    Seventh heaven here.


    I shall not return (hopefully)

    Glad you're happy to be home Helge I'm sure your missus will find her happiness in no time at all, these Thai girls seek each other out with ease and soon your kitchen will be awash with throngs of Thai wives gambling and stinking up the place with mud fish salad. Good luck buddy
