I apologise in advance for what may be a couple of trivial questions, however as I don't know the answers myself....
My wife's Thai passport will be expiring next year. Hence we are intending to have a short vacation in Thailand, to both relax, plus also to obtain a new passport for her. Does anyone know
1. how long it takes for the Ministry of Foreign Affiars in Bangkok to process/issue a new passport?
2. Do they automatically hand back the old (expired) passport, which has my wife's ILR stamp, or do we have to specifically request it back?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
