For Singaporeans who wish to register their marriage in Thailand
Both you and your fiancé/fiancée must present yourselves in person at the Singapore Embassy in Bangkok to execute an affidavit. Please bring along the following:
(a) The original Marriage Search Result from the Registry of Marriages (ROM) in Singapore showing that there is no record of a marriage contracted by you (*For Muslims, please obtain the Marriage Search Result from Registry of Muslim Marriages):
Registry of Marriages, 7 Canning Rise, Singapore 179869
Tel: +65 6338 7808
(b) A letter from your employer stating your present occupation and monthly salary.
(c) Original Passports and Identity Cards of both you and your fiancé/fiancée.
Half a working day
After you have obtained the affidavit and certified true copies of your Marriage Search Result and Singapore Passport biodata page from the Embassy, you will have to get them translated to Thai and legalised by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which may take up to 3 working days. For more details on Thai MFA’s address, contact information, opening hours, legalisation service requirements and fees, please refer to https://consular.mfa.go.th. Thereafter, you can register your marriage at any District Office of your choice, in the presence of two witnesses and a Thai interpreter.
Any current or former work permit holder who wishes to marry a Singapore Citizen/Permanent Resident, must first seek approval from the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) before proceeding to file a notice of marriage. This is to ensure that the marriage application does not break any work permit conditions. For more information including how to apply for MOM’s approval, please visit https://www.mom.gov.sg/faq/foreign-worker. The registration of marriage between a non-Singaporean and Singapore Citizen/Permanent Resident does not automatically accord the foreign spouse the right of permanent residence in Singapore.
