How to get a birth certificate in Thailand
Usually copies of birth certificates can only be obtained by authorized personnel at their local amphur office from inside Thailand.
At the time of writing it is not possible to search birth certificates online in Thailand. The document must be obtained in person through your local amphur (amphoe) office. If you are not currently in Thailand or find yourself struggling with this process, our agents are able to help you in obtaining the document. We can also help to search and retrieve many other different documents for all manner of reasons.
When getting in touch with us regarding birth certificates (or civil document retrieval), please include as much information as possible with your initial inquiry. Such as which province the subject was born in (where known), whether the birth took place at a hospital or elsewhere, and any information which you hold on the subject… For example, do you have a copy of their Thai national ID card or passport? Do you have their full name and date of birth? This information will help us to guide you and provide a free quote.
