How to get a Thai Residence Certificate

There are some procedures in Thailand such as obtaining a Thai driving licence which require you to present a residence certificate to prove your address.

There are two ways in which you can obtain this certificate, one is at your embassy and one is at your local immigration office. It is usually more convenient to use your local immigration office.
