The Royal Thai Consulate in Xian, Peoples Republic of China

Transcript of the above video:

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

The address of that post is Royal Thai Consulate General, 11 East, Diamond Peninsula, Qujiang New District, Yannan 3rd Road, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710016, China. The telephone number is: (+86) 29 8931 2831 (+86) 29 8931 2863.

For those of you who are looking at this video and we are presuming you are a person who is presumptively going to be seeking a visa to Thailand, you should keep in mind that different Consulates and Embassies process cases slightly differently. This is mostly from an administrative standpoint. It is just kind of administrative discretion or how the local habits have formed over time. Long story short, different post-process things slightly differently so what may work at one post may not necessarily work in another post in terms of how exactly they want to see the visa application submitted etc. 

The other thing to bear in mind is different posts have consular jurisdiction to issue visas of different category and they may not have consular jurisdiction to issue all types of Thai Visas. Again, this will vary from post but while it may be possible in some circumstances we especially see this with Honorary Consulates where they may not be able to issue things like a Retirement Visa but they may be able to issue something like a Tourist Visa for example, and so that may vary from post to post.

The other thing to bear in mind is different Consulates and Embassies may have authority to issue visas with differing validity of duration so it may be possible to get a Visa sticker with the validity of one year at one Embassy and then you try doing the same thing at a Consulate and you can only get a single 90-day visa, and by single I mean single entry 90-day visa. So again it is going to differ from post to post. Not everything you read on the internet is broadly applicable throughout all the Embassies and Consulates of Thailand which are stationed abroad.

For those who feel a bit overwhelmed about how best to proceed in these matters, it may be a good idea to contact a legal professional in order to gain some insight and guidance in to how best to seek a visa to the Kingdom of Thailand.
