On 7 January 2021, the Thai Department of Business Development (DBD) announced that company affidavits and corporate document certification must be applied for online through the DBD e-Service (www.dbd.go.th). The notification took effect on 11 January 2021.
Applicants may receive documents through one of the following means:
1. A downloadable e-Certificate file in PDF form;
2. Paper copies sent through EMS postal service; picked-up in-person at the central DBD office or at DBD offices 1-6 in Bangkok; or collected in-person at any participating commercial bank.
The DBD registrar will sign company affidavits and certified documents digitally. As per Thai law, the electronic signature will have the same legal effect as a wet-ink signature.
