    1. Hi Sebastien, the “pink ID card” is a Thai ID card for foreigners. It is our understanding that once you have a yellow tabien baan (yellow house and resident registration book, or ‘Thor Ror 13’) you can apply for a pink ID card. You can Google for more information, or contact the Tessaban.

      1. So….you get the Pink Card after you have a yellow Tabien Baan book…does that mean the Pink Card is only for home owners? Or do I have to get a copy of my land-lord’s Tabien Baan and use that to get a Pink Card? I’ve lived here for 24 years and have never heard of this card. Also, #5 on the list says certificate from work or hospital. What kind of certificate? A health certificate?
        One last question… a few weeks ago I registered for the vaccine online. They said they would text me with my appointment date. I haven’t heard anything from them and now can’t find the website where I signed up. What happened with the website? Am I registered or not? How do I find out if I’m already registered? Lots of questions, sorry.

        1. Hi Rick, I’d recommend going to the Samui Hospital and registering again, or you could try calling the Foreigner Center at Koh Samui Hospital first. Take as much ID as you have. Sorry, I am just sharing the info that was given to us.

        2. The pink ID is an ID card for foreigners – it has a 13 digit ID number, and would show you are registered in Samui. However it takes time and there’s a bit of a process to get a pink ID (it requires that you have your name listed in a yellow house book). So perhaps just take a copy of the lease and a copy of the landlord’s tabien baan.

          Getting a certificate from work – a letterhead saying you work there, and try to get it stampped with the company seal. More official.

  1. I am a retiree with non of the pink card etc.

    Works well. Mailed my details got a reply 90 mins later with confirmation of registration and informing me they would contact me when the vaccine was available.
    Thanks Sisters.

      1. I registered on line but came back rejected. Went to immigration but was told even tho I have lived in Samui for 10 years I returned to the U.K. and had to obtain a OA VISA to travel back to Thailand as at the time I couldn’t enter on my O visa. As my visa is less then 12 months old I cannot register for vaccine at this moment in time. Anyone else have this issue ?
