The Australian Embassy will issue a Certificate of No Impediment for Australians to get married in Thailand. Please note that Thai authorities will only accept a CNI issued by the Australian Embassy for Australian citizens who have entered on their Australian passports. If you have entered Thailand on a passport issued by another country, you will need to request the equivalent document from that country’s Embassy.

Please follow the link for information on the steps you need to take to ensure that their marriage in Thailand is recognised as a valid marriage in Thailand and Australia. This information is provided in both English and Thai, please click here.

A Certificate of No Impediment will be issued during your appointment.  It is not mandatory for the partner to attend the appointment.

  • The appropriate supporting documentation - original photo ID and divorce papers or death certificate (if applicable) for both the applicant and partner; and
  • A completed application form. Please do not sign the form until your appointment when staff can witness your signature.
