REQUIREMENTS FOR MARRIAGE REGISTRATION IN THAILAND
To marry in Thailand there are 4 steps to getting legally married. It is best to allow 4-5 days in Bangkok to complete the necessary paperwork.
You must present yourself to the New Zealand Embassy in Bangkok, in person, to complete the statutory declaration form and bring;

- Details of 2 referees who are not family; street address cannot be a Thai address

Get the completed statutory declaration and any other documents translated into Thai. The Embassy doesn’t do translations but can advise who can.
Take your statutory declaration in English with the Thai translation(s) to the Thai Consular Affairs Department to be ‘legalised’
To register your marriage, go to any Thai registration office called Amphur Office outside of Bangkok or Khet Office inside Bangkok – your Wedding Planner can assist with this
