Islamic Marriage in Bangkok, Thailand
For Muslims and Non Muslims who are looking forward to get married under Islamic laws in Thailand, the procedure is simple and straightforward.
The drive to the Islamic Center may take two hours but it’s worth it especially if you can get married within 2-hour ceremony. It takes a bit longer if one of the marrying parties is non muslim as he/she needs to get converted into Islam first prior to the marriage. The center will issue a marriage certificate in English. This certificate can be brought to the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs for legalization if you intend to use the document abroad.
Getting married under Islamic laws entails simple requirements except for Bahraini and Kuwaiti nationals who need some letter from their embassies in Thailand prior to getting married. The requirements are as follows:
1. Passport & copies
3. Divorce Certificate (if applicable)
4. Registration fee is THB 5,000
What makes it complicated however is the initial planning that goes with it. You would need then to coordinate with the center for your preferred schedule of marriage and do the follow up as the big day approaches. This is because the center follows a pretty hectic schedule. You need to liaise and schedule an appointment with them in advance that they may be able to accommodate your marriage.
