The Royal Thai Consulate in Shanghai, Peoples Republic of China

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the Royal Thai Consulate in Shanghai China. The address for that post is: Royal Thai Consulate-General, No. 18, Wanshan Road, Changning District, Shanghai 203336, China. The telephone number is: (+86) 021 5260 9899 Extension 888.

For those who are unaware, we make these videos for those who are looking to process a Thai Visa or a visa to come to the Kingdom of Thailand and we make these presumptively for folks who are looking for information about Consulates and Embassies of Thailand abroad. It should be noted just as sort of a tip in dealing with different Consulates and Embassies, they do process things slightly differently from an administrative standpoint. What may work in terms of the organization of a visa application package in one Consulate may not work the exact same way in another Consulate so when you are dealing with one specific post you need to deal with them under their own rules. What you may read on the internet, it may provide some insight but it may not provide insight on a specific post. 

The other thing to understand is different Embassies and Consulates have different jurisdiction with respect to adjudication of differing visa categories so they may or may not be able to issue certain types of Visa categories. For example, it may be possible to obtain a Retirement Visa in one location and not possible to obtain a Retirement Visa in another location; just as a for example. Meanwhile different Embassies and Consulates have the authority to issue differing duration of Visas so it may be possible to obtain a one-year multi-entry Visa in one post and only possible to obtain a 90-day single entry visa in another post. So that is something to keep in mind when looking at processing a visa to Thailand. 

For those who feel overwhelmed about how to deal with this, it may be a good idea to contact a legal professional in order to gain some insight and guidance into how best to proceed.
