From the Embassy Web Site:

“Australian Embassy staff cannot assist Australians to obtain or extend Thai visas, nor can Embassy staff provide supporting documents to Australians for Thai visa applications. This includes statutory declarations and certified copies of documents for Thai visa purposes.

Statutory declarations – Embassy staff can only witness Australian statutory declarations for use in Australia. As such, Embassy staff cannot witness statutory declarations which declare your income or bank balances for Thai immigration purposes.

Certified copies – While Embassy staff can provide certified copies of documents, Thai Immigration has advised that they will not accept certified copies of documents as evidence of income in support of visa applications. The Embassy cannot certify evidence of your income for this purpose.
