The Royal Thai Consulate in Kunming, Peoples Republic of China

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the Royal Thai Consulate in Kunming, China.

The address is: Royal Thai Consulate-General, 18th Floor, Shuncheng, Twin Tower, East Building, Dong Feng Xi Lu Road, Kunming, Yunnan Province 650051, China. The telephone number is: (+86) 871 6316 8916 or (+86) 871 6314 9296 or (+86) 871 316 2063 Extension 2103 or 2107.

For those who are unaware, we do a lot of these videos on Embassies and Consulates. We make them presumably for folks who are looking for the Thai Embassy or Consulate in order to apply for Thai visas abroad. 

One point of fact that should be noted, different Consulates and Embassies will process cases in a different manner from each other. They are like snowflakes in a sense. I don't mean to over inflate the gravity of it but long story short different Consulates, different Embassies process things in a different way. When I say a different way not totally substantially different, but administratively different so the way one Embassy or Consulate likes to see a visa application be put forth another Embassy or Consulate may want to see documentation in a different order for example. 

Meanwhile different Consulates and Embassies around the world have different Consular jurisdiction with respect to the categories of visas they are allowed to issue as well as the duration of Visa that they will generally issue. What may be possible for example to obtain a Retirement Visa from one Embassy may not be possible to obtain a Retirement Visa from another Embassy or another Consulate and then on top of that, it may not be possible to obtain such a travel document of a one-year duration as opposed to a 90-day duration. 

So, things are going to vary greatly from Embassy to Embassy and Consulate to Consulate. For those who feel a bit overwhelmed about how to deal with the Thai Visa process, it may be a good idea to go ahead and contact a legal professional in order to gain some insight and guidance into how best to proceed.
