    Police Report

    Does anyone know whether you need to go to a police station in Thailand in person to ask for a police report on yourself or whether you can just send a proxy?

    I need a police report for my Aus PR application. Never having done a police report before myself, I don't know if I need to go there myself and make the application of if I can give someone power of attorney to do it for me.

    I have looked elsewhere on the Internet for an answer to this, but have yet to find one.

    Any advice (nice or otherwise - like don't bother with the Aus PR application ) would be welcomed.

    Don't see why you shouldn't be able to use a proxy; you can do almost everything at immigration by POA these days so in theory at least it should work the same.


    Oh yeah, and don't bother with the Aus PR application .

    ^thanks Ant. What concerns me is I recall Thailand's privacy laws are very strict - more so than the UK -and as a result I'm not sure I can use a proxy.

    They'll need to take your finger prints, hence doing it by mail might be a bit tricky.

    I think they have to take your photo at the Police HQ (or whever it is done) which they then scan into the report they write. At least that's how my wife's was done when she applied for her Aus PR.


    And do it, W. Saves a lot of hassle, and there are benefits !

    However, the below is for NZ, but I don't know how accurate it is, because there definitely is a small charge (150 baht or so).

    Information on getting a police certificate for Thailand

    Specific procedure for Thailand

    Advice from the Thai authorities is that if you are physically in Thailand you need to apply in person for the police clearance at the central police station so that your fingerprints can be taken. The office is open 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday (except public holidays).

    Processing time is advertised as being seven days.

    There is no official charge for a Thai police clearance.


    Apply to:
    The Police Clearance Service Centre
    Building 24, Royal Thai Police Headquarters
    Rama I Road, Pratumwan
    Bangkok 10330
    Ph: 02205 21689


    Applications in Thailand – you should provide:

    1. a passport
    2. a Thai ID card
    3. two passport-size photographs
    4. house registration (Thai nationals only)
    5. a military service or military exemption certificate (Thai males only)
    6. a change of name certificate (if applicable).
    If you are an overseas national applying for a police clearance in Thailand you will need to provide evidence that you are or used to work or reside in Thailand. If you are currently working you will need to provide your Thai work permit.

    Overseas applications – you should provide:

    1. a copy of your passport or travel document certified at a Thai embassy or consulate
    2. a copy of your Thai ID card
    3. a copy of house registration
    4. two passport-size photographs
    5. three sets of fingerprints (contact your local police station)
    6. a change of name certificate (if applicable)
    7. a military service or military exemption certificate (Thai males only)
    8. a return self-addressed pre-paid envelope.
    If you are an overseas national applying for a Thai policy clearance you will need to proide a copy of your Thai work permit and a document stating the dates that you previously lived and/or worked in Thailand.

    Welcome.

    Like I said, for a gov't website to refer to "a Thai policy clearance" and state "will need to proide a copy" it might be next to useless.

    Ask your local police if they can take your finger prints and then send the doc to Bangkok with your application.

    Embassy websites

    In Canada, we can just do it through links on the Thai Embassy website in Vancouver. Actually the links just walk you through the process they aren't direct links back into the various TH ministries. Have a look for yourself if you like. Years ago I followed the same process for getting one for my wife.

    I've got a British friend who has relocated back to the auld contree who is in need of a Thai Police Cert for a job interview.

    He looked through the current regs at Welcom TO The Police Clearance Service Cener Special Branch Royal Thai Police

    However, unsure if he would receive it, he contacted a "service" that has a link on this website. He sent his docs off and after a couple of weeks was informed by a very poorly written email that they now had it all in hand but he had to transfer 14,000 Bt to them!

    The web site for the police does hint at fees - included is a new fee of 100 bt from them. However, there is no break down of any other "fees" involved!

    Has anyone gone down this road? If so and if they went directly and not through the 'A Plus' agency wanting 14,000 bt, how much did they pay the police all in?

    Cheers in advance for any help on this!

    100 baht is the actual cost. Everything is to whichever agency he contacted to do it for him.

    Which means under similar circumstances it might be good to just get one when the person leaves Thailand!

    Yep. He should have done it before he left - paid the price big time. It cost him 8000bt for fingerprinting by the Cambridge Police and the agency in Thailand charge 4000 plus 2,500 for Fed Ex to UK! All in, 14,000Bt

    So anyone thinking of going back, it's worth jumping through a few hoops over here to save yourself some cash!

    fark - list of docs a mile long - and I am here on an exempt stamp

    went to a work visa interview at a consulate in bangkok and took all the docs asked - and then he decides he wants an aust and thai police report

    Just did an Aust one online - scan passport , scan drivers licence , print and sign and scan application and 42 AUD

    next plan is to see about getting the work visa when I am back in Mad - try and find an agent to handle it all
