    Hi there,

    Did your wife lost her Australian citizen?
    And how much did the whole process cost ?


    • Hi Sally,

      No she didn’t. The whole process costs 5000 baht.

        • The timeframes are similar, 3 or so years from application to grant. Due to a quirk in the law, male applicants require the sign off by HM the King, while women only need the sign off by the Minister of Interior. This can shorten the womans rouge by a few months other things being equal. However, if Thailand does happen to have a Minister of Interior who is not inclined to sign any applications, then everyone gets held up.
