    Can anyone suggest useful documents my Thai husband should bring for living and working in the UK?

    We're getting our marriage certificate translated and I'm wondering what else he may need. Driving licence, ID card etc???

    Thanks

    If this is his first entry to the UK then he can drive for the first 12 months on a Thai driving licence so bring that.
    ID card, yes, no point leaving it in Thailand. Any other qualifications get them translated.

    Does this mean that, as he's already been to the UK once on a visitor's visa, he can't use his Thai driving Licence?

    No. His last visit to the UK was on a visitor visa, this time he will be arriving for a settled purpose so he will be allowed to drive on his Thai licence for 12 months from the date of his arrival in the UK. This is a 'one time' offer. To continue driving after the first 12 months he will have to pass a UK driving test and obtain a UK licence.

    Translation of Thai birth certificate plus original
    Translation and copy of house book (Tabien Baan)

    If your not planning regular visits then maybe not bringing the ID card might be better as you can issue a power of attorney letter via the embassy to allow the family to renew the card as needed , although for Thai passport renewals it might be needed in the UK.

    Jacks, as well as the things already mentioned, if he has any certificates .... degree certificate ....anything work-related .... do get those translated as necessary.

    And in the UK, whenever you supply a certificate ... marriage or whatever ..... always supply both the Thai original and the translation into English.
