If you are going to be leaving the country it is important that we sort out the paperwork before you leave to make sure we can transfer the car in your absence.
Currently the department of land transport (DLT) requires the seller to have a valid visa and residency certificate (which you can only get if you are in the country) at the time of doing the transfer. Unless you have a visa that is still going to be good for a long time and you can provide an affidavit from your consulate that doesn’t have an expiration date we will need you to find a friend that would be willing to let you transfer the car into their name temporarily until we sell it so that we can submit the required paperwork to the DLT when the time comes to transfer it to a buyer.
This initial temporary ownership transfer process will require both you and your friend to get a residence certificate (unless they are Thai then just an ID card copy), then we will have to get another residency certificate for your friend once we are able to sell it. Don’t freak out if it sounds complicated, we’re here to help!
