  • Processing time for all visa application is up to 15 business days (Weekend and Holiday Excluded)/Consulate's Holidays. This means within 15 business days; you should see the status update on your Visa application dashboard.

  • Visa fee is non-refundable, please double check all information before submitting, especially if your device is using auto fill or auto correct. Mismatch information will be rejected as the officers are not able to edit any information entered by the applicant. Applicants will have to re-submit and the Visa fee is non-refundable. 
  • Per the regulation, the Consulate "cannot" issue a visa for foreign nationals who are not in Consulate's juridiction and who arecurrently in Thailand. All travelers need to obtain a visa before entering Thailand. *If you entered Thailand without a visa, please contact the Immigration Bureau (immigration.go.th) to explore the options in your case*
