    Thai passport renewal

    I just noticed Ao's passport expires in January and we want her to come next month for a few weeks

    I know they usually won't grant a visa with PP under 6 months valid

    Now, will she be able to renew her Thai passport even though there is 5 months left on it?


    thanks

    Of course, a passport does not need to be expired to renew it.

    Even spilling a cup of coffee on it is good enough reason, but also when all visa pages are full or an extreme change of hairdo..

    What! Please explain.

    EDIT: From MFA.go.th website.

    Why is it required for travelers to hold Passports that will be valid for longer than 6 months before traveling abroad?
    - It is the norm of many countries to require travelers to hold Passports that will be valid for longer than 6 months before leaving the country. If a Passport will expire in less than 6 months, the traveler must apply for a new e-Passport. Before traveling, travelers must check with the embassy or consulate-general of the country/countries in which they wish to travel to find out their requirements.
    Should you have further questions, please contact the Department of Consular Affairs located at 123 Chaengwattana Road, Laksi, Bangkok 10210 or alternatively, you can reach us at Tel: 0-2981-7171 or 0-2981-7276-7 Fax: 0-2981-7256 or by e-mail at consular05@mfa.go.th


    Easily done at her local Administrative Office.

    How was the answer obtuse? I dont understand what you mean. My first post was very succinct in answering the question. The poster after that asked for an explanation while at the same time answering their request to explain in the quote they took from the website. I dont understand how I can put it any more straightforward then that you cant renew or extend a Thai passport.

    So you want to indulge in a definition war of "renew"? 555!

    I go with "make new". Merriam & Webster.

    A passport with 6 months or less on it is generally treated as an expired document. It should be ok, or in case of damage or loss. Maybe vixi was talking about anything not meeting these conditions, not sure.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Think he is saying you can't extend or re-new your current passport... only apply for a new one?

    Oh OK, I understand what people are confused about. I assumed people knew the difference, but by providing a dictionary definition of renew, clearly thats not the case.

    Take the UK as an example; you can renew a UK passport, when you renew your passport, time left on your existing passport is added to your new one. Also the forms required are different from a new passport (as in first time you apply for a passport), basically less information needs to be supplied and verified.

    I believe similar passport renewals apply to the US and many other countries, but the conditions may vary of course.

    Here are some links to show this.

    https://www.gov.uk/apply-first-adult-passport and https://www.gov.uk/renew-adult-passport/overview

    Thailand doesnt allow renewals of passports, when you need a new passport due to it expiring, its a new application, it the same process and application as new passport, same forms are used etc. The expiry date is 5 years from the grant date etc.

    Quote and link from the same site you quoted earlier, which is why I said you should read you own quote.

    Validity for e-Passports
    To maintain the quality and usability of e-Passports, the ordinary e-Passports are valid for 5 years.
    No extension of validity will be granted and a new e-Passport will be issued when the current one expires.
    Amendments to e-Passport bearers information are not allowed (i.e. changes to the bearers name or surname) as corrections will create problems because they will clash with the information already captured in the embedded microchip. Therefore, any amendments must first be reported to the Ministry of Interior before the bearer can apply for a new e-Passport.

    At least my post did give information to the OP on renewing a Thai passport.

    When you carry out the UK process (not relevant to the Thread but I'm interested) does your "renewed" passport have a new number.?
    In OZ it is a new number and 10 years from the date of application.

    The passport office isn't always at the local Administrative Office, only a small number are, best to refer here to find a list of locations.
