Before registering your marriage in Thailand, contact your embassy to establish what legal documents you require. It takes at least one week in Thailand to acquire and process the necessary documentation. Below are the steps for weddings in Thailand that are recognized abroad.
  • Step 1 Have your embassy in Thailand issue a certificate, in English, for the bride and groom.
  • Step 2 Have these certificates legally translated into Thai at a law office or certified legal translator
  • Step 3 Take the original documents from steps 1 and 2 to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok for validation and stamps on all pages. Note: Plan on four working days (excluding weekends and Thai Public Holidays) in Bangkok For steps 1-3. We recommend you make appointments with the authorities to ensure the documents are issued on time.
  • Step 4 The final step is receiving a wedding certificate in Samui. The wedding couple can either go to City Hall to sign the official documents, or invite the authorities to the hotel to include the signing as part of the wedding ceremony. (Remark: The concerned authorities can come to the hotel to include the signing as part of the wedding ceremony for an additional fee payable to the District Office).

Please note that the hotel is not responsible for completing steps from 1-4; the Bride and Groom are solely responsible for issuing the correct documents however the hotel will assist in any other way..
