Dual National passport switch

Jump to last reply

I have dual citizenship . American and German.

Please help for I need advice on what to do regarding switching 1 passport (American) to my 2nd passport ( German).

I am currently in Thailand on my 1st passport (American) and have received a job offer that requires me to be native German speaker. This is the reason I need to be in Thailand on my German passport. They will not issue me a work permit if I am here on my American passport.

I have never used my German passport. I have never exited Germany on my German passport. And I have never entered another country on my German passport. I have nothing but clear pages inside my passport. My entry stamp into Thailand is in my American passport.

What can I do to get a entry stamp from Thailand on to my German passport ? I know I can fly back to Germany and then return to Thailand, but this is what I am trying to avoid for the ticket for me is too expensive. I would like to save some money if possible. Can I switch passport during flight to a closer destination say Malaysia or Hong Kong.

Will there be a problem if I use my German passport upon arrival to say Malaysia or Hong Kong? Will Malaysia or Hong Kong give me a entry stamp on my German passport if I leave Thailand on my American passport.
I have heard many stories of this being successful but how is this done . Can it be done , and is it legal?

Purchasing a ticket to one of these two destinations is significantly cheaper and a lot less time consuming than having to fly back to Germany and pay the high price for the airfare.

Does anyone know what would be the best way to go about this ?
