Contact information for the administrative centres of Bangkok. The place to go for vehicle registration papers, ID cards, driving licences and more...

Many government departments have information relevant for foreigners living in Bangkok and Thailand. Websites are often in English and further information can be found by telephoning the relevant department. An English speaking person will often be available.

Here find the contact information for the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and its Khets, the Immigration Bureau, the Department of Land Transport (DLT) and offices of Employment and Finance.

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA)

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) provides many local services for the 50 districts (khet) of Bangkok. Public hospitals, health, education, sewage, sports and tourism are all part of the BMA's remit.

ID cards, House Registration Documents (Tabien Baan) and marriage certificates are issued in each of the 50 district offices. Some of these have been upgraded to be a "One Stop Service" centre to provide a more efficient service in a pleasant environment.

Telephone numbers for all the district offices in Bangkok can be found in the English version of the Yellow Pages or by telephoning the Yellow Pages to get the address and telephone number of a local office.
