If you go through the agent at the immigration office the cost is usually 1000 THB. Alternatively we can also get you one with our service for 500 THB + VAT (includes taking your picture), plus the agent fee of 1000 THB.
You should get your residency certificate within two business days. If you don’t use an agent it can take anywhere from 10-30 business days.
Note: The original document is required for the car ownership process, so you should request extra copies if you need them for other processes such as obtaining a Thai driver’s license, opening a Thai bank account, etc. However, if you will be doing your driver’s license right after you have the car, we can request a certified copy from the DLT when we do the car ownership transfer so you can avoid the extra fee of an additional residency certificate.
