Question from a client:I left my car in Thailand expecting to return. However, it is not likely that I will return and so I want to transfer the registration to a friend whilst I remain in Australia. That friend can sell it for me. I have made some inquiries on the internet and with friends but the matter seems complicated if I am not in Thailand. The car is nearly 10 years old and worth only around 200,000 – 250,000 baht. Could Sunbelt Asia handle this for me?
Sunbelt Asia Legal Advisors responds:
Yes Sunbelt Asia Legal Advisors can help you transfer the registration here in Thailand but first you need to go to the Thai Embassy in Australia and obtain a Power of Attorney that is signed and notarized by Thai Embassy and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A Copy of Passport and Visa (even if expired) signed and notarized by Thai Embassy and Ministry of Foreign Affairs is needed as is the blue book for the vehicle.
One of Sunbelt Asia Legal’s advisors would then obtain a certification of the car, and handle the transfer of ownership and blue book to the new buyer. The new buyer would need to be present at the transfer. Please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss the process.
