Anew di­rec­tive in Thai­land will al­low court plead­ings and doc­u­ments to be filed elec­tron­i­cally. The Di­rec­tive of the Pres­i­dent of the Supreme Court on Sub­mit­ting, Send­ing, and Re­ceiv­ing Plead­ings and Doc­u­ments via the Elec­tronic Fil­ing Sys­tem came into ef­fect on May 4, 2017.

The elec­tronic fil­ing sys­tem al­lows liti- gants to send and re­ceive plead­ings, no­tices, court or­ders, sum­monses, doc­u­ments, and other types of war­rants. In ad­di­tion, re­quired court fees and trial ex­penses may now be paid on­line via credit or debit card, bank trans­fer, or other meth­ods spec­i­fied in the An­nounce­ment of the Of­fice of the Ju­di­ciary. Cur­rently, only three courts of­fer this ser­vice: ( 1) The Civil Court ( Bangkok); ( 2) The Thon Buri Civil Court; and ( 3) The South Bangkok Civil Court. Per the di­rec­tive, fu­ture courts that al­low elec­tronic fil­ing will make pub­lic an­nounce­ments.
