Royal Thai Embassy London Processing Visa Applications Online

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing Thai Visa Applications through the Royal Thai Embassy in London in the United Kingdom.  

It recently came to my attention, on the thaiembassy.org website specifically london/en/services.  Quoting the following: “E-visa application: From 15 June 2019, visa applicants in the UK and Ireland have to apply online. In order to access online visa applications please go to thaievisa.go.th/home. Applicants are required to set up an account and submit visa applications online, then book an appointment to submit their passports and visa applications in person at the Embassy or submit them by post.  So much like when Vientiane, Laos, which we did another video on this channel, which is doing most applications for visas online, as well as it is my understanding the Royal Thai Embassy in Singapore, the Royal Thai Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, the Royal Thai Embassy in London is now doing things in an online manner. They are processing things online. 

I find this rather interesting because we deal with a lot of US Immigration matters here out of our office in Bangkok, Thailand and in that context we see a lot of online filings go on in the US Immigration apparatus and it seems Thailand is simply following suit with their Western counterparts in phasing in and it is kind of a gradual phase-in of an online system for applying for Thai Immigration benefits; for Thai visa and travel documents. 

So moving forward, I think it is safe to say you are going to have to deal with the online system in order to get your visas from the UK processed and to be able to travel to Thailand in a timely manner.
