No photocopies of ID cards, house registration needed for govt transactions


Thais can now conduct transactions at government agencies without providing copies of their ID card and house registration, the Department of Provincial Administration announced on the Royal Gazette website on Tuesday.

The notice, signed by the department’s director-general Thanakom Chongchira on September 30, aims to support the transition to a digital government and to ease procedures for people.

However, if someone is using a power of attorney to conduct the transaction, then they should produce a copy of the main person’s national ID.

If government officials require copies of ID cards or house registration, then they must photocopy these items themselves without charging users.
