Transferring Bike Ownership

Discussion in 'General Discussion / News / Information' started by Poompui, Jul 6, 2014.

  1. Hi,
    Quick/siily question,read online somewhere that to transfer ownership of a bike in Thailand the new Farang owner needs a work permit or "residence certificate".
    Any truth in this?
    Will arrive at the end of the month on a 30 day visa exemption thing,but will try to arrange a Non O visa (marriage) while I am here,and see if the wifes' family can get me on a housing register somewhere.
    Let the red tape nightmare begin!
    :?
     
  2. It varies a bit from province, but basically you need confirmation of ID & address.
    Generally this means either a letter from immigration - Certificate of Address.
    If you're buying a new bike, the shop will tell you what they need & should look after it all for you.

    You could also take a look at this page on the main GTR website
