    Hi Peter. There isn't a form. You type out your own affirmation. You use the example on the FCO website as a guide.

    There's a link to a PDF file on this page http://ukinthailand.fco.gov.uk/en/help-for-british-nationals/living-in-thailand/how-register-marriage/

    Once you've located the template, peter, it will soon become apparent that it takes about thirty-seconds to fill in.

    Enjoy the facility.

    As a tip peter - you can just put down your parents names for reference!

    I thought it best to put down a couple of people i knew who owned businesses but the lady at the Amphur told me i could have just put parents names and addresses

    In that case no, she doesn't need to do an affirmation. The only thing your girlfriend needs for her to marry (at the amphur stage) is her ID card and tabien baan (blue house book). Although if she is divorced or widowed she will need the paperwork to show this.

    yes,she's the most beautiful girl in the world.
    Sorry but thats not possible.....I'm already married to her

    If you're divorced you'll need the original decree absolute or widowed, the death certificate, but if single just the affirmation. From memory, the embassy will give you a template upon arrival and you can get it typed up over the road from the embassy, only cost 2 or 300b. But if you do it in advance, it's quicker and cheaper. Just ignore the touts outside the embassy. Though you will need someone to translate the marriage certificate.

    The template mentions dependents, so no.

    Here's the template if anyone needs one https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...n_Thaliand.pdf


    The translation of a marriage certificate (into English) would be much later on (if you think it's necessary), after the affirmation has been signed by the British Embassy, that needs to be translated into Thai before being taken to the MFA.
    "You're so unapproachable!"
    "And yet, here you are."
