    Default Half Thai / Half English Woman

    Hi
    I was born in the UK to a Thai mother and an English father. My mother at the time did not apply for a Thai passport for me.
    Now that I am 40 - is it still possible to obtain a Thai passport? If so - how and what do I need to do?
    I would be grateful for your advice.

    Have a look at this..http://www.thaicitizenship.com/thai-...born-overseas/

    Just with a quick read through it may be difficult to get a Thai birth certificate now you are 40!!!

    Interersting question.

    Slightly different circumstances, but I know someone who left Thailand eon's ago, went to the US, secured citizenship, had a great career and then 2/3 years ago, returned to Thailand for the first time in the best part of 30 years, on his American passport.

    He thought he would have all sorts of difficulty in securing another Thai passport, but found it relatively painless and simple.

    Good luck!

    I believe if you renounce your (country of choice) citizenship and you can apply for Thai nationality through your mother. Providing you can prove your mothers citizenship.
    If you were born in Thailand (no matter when) you can get 'status' as a returning citizen. Loads of 'celebs' do this when they want to retire and buy property (land) in Thailand.
    I also believe there is a specific department in the Ministry (of whatever) that deals with this.
    Good luck
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    Hi, and welcome to our forums.

    I believe your first step should be to contact the Thai Embassy in London and discuss your options with them. As you were born in the UK, they are your "local office" for dealing with birth registration, ID card, etc.

    If you are male, then there is a danger of Thai Military conscription.

    What often happens when someone who was raised in a foreign country arrives at the red card/black card pick for national service (or during a conversation that is had beforehand) is that they can't speak Thai well enough (this inability can be something that 'suddenly occurs' ) and are excused.
