The Kingdom of Thailand is a popular travel destination for many around the globe. Meanwhile, Thailand is increasingly coming to be viewed as a premier business center due to her unique location and geographic relationship to other key Asian economic centers. Concurrently, Thailand’s closer neighbors are becoming more economically developed on a daily basis and this growth is contributing indirectly to further prosperity in Thailand. These factors combine to form a sort of economic “perfect storm” in Thailand, in the sense that there is much evidence to suggest that the Thai economy will be very vibrant in the coming months and years.
In Thailand, many find that they are in need of the services of a Thai notary at some point in their life or career. This need may stem from a Thai property matter or a situation involving acquisition of Thai real estate in the form of a condo. Condominiums in Thailand are popular especially amongst expatriates and Americans resident abroad as it may be possible, depending upon factual circumstances, to take freehold title (referred to as Chanote by the Thai people) to a Thai condo.
In the context of business in Thailand it seems likely that a notary’s services might be necessary from time to time especially for those who maintain a Thai limited company. For Americans, corporate matters pertaining to a Thai company certified under the provisions of the US-Thai Treaty of Amity may require the services of a notary. It should be noted that in the context of American notarial services it may be virtually impossible to obtain a valid American notarization abroad at anywhere other than a US Mission, US Embassy, or US Consulate.
Those seeking notarial services ought to be aware of the limited nature of such undertakings in an American common-law context (as opposed to the legal tradition of a jurisdiction such as the State of Louisiana, which maintains somewhat differing jurisprudence on that subject matter) as an unfortunate occurrence; especially in the context of the practice of United States immigration law, is the claim by so-called “notarios” to expertise in legal matters where such an individual is not a licensed attorney. Readers should be aware that regardless of who a prospective client opts to retain for legal services, consultation, or counsel it is always prudent to ensure that such an individual is licensed or qualified to practice law in the jurisdiction in which they claim expertise. For those seeking assistances in the acquisition of a US visa such as the K-1 visa or the CR-1 visa it should be noted that only an attorney licensed to practice law pursuant to 8 C.F.R. 292.1 may practice American immigration law before institutions such as the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of State.
