    Default Royal Thai Embassy London - evisa

    e-visa application will start from 1 April 2019** New From 1 April 2019,From 1 April 2019, visa applicants in the UK and Ireland have to apply online. Let's see how it works. https://thaievisa.go.th/Images/sliders/e-visa.mp4

    According to the video, after you make your online application you have to submit your passport to an embassy or consulate and then collect when ready.!
    No more postal applications?
    I know it does not start until April, hope things will be a lot clearer by then.

    Been doing this in Singapore since 2017. Pretty straight forward.

    So how does this work in Singapore?
    How do you get your visa?
    Do you have to go to the Embassy/Consulate, or is all done on line ?

    Just checked Singapore evisa application -After the online application is completed, the applicant will be able to check his or her application status. Once the status indicated “Reviewed”, the applicants will need to bring the completed and duly signed physical copy of the visa application form together with his or her passport, to be submitted at the Royal Thai Embassy.
    The applicant is also requested to submit the application in person. Once the applicant submits all required documents along with the visa payment, and approved by the authority, the visa can be obtained in the afternoon of the next business day
    Requires two visits to Embassy !

    In Singapore it is an Embassy, fill in the application Online (they also had PCs you could use at the Consular section or did have) Scanned and sent required documents, they check and let you know when to come in person, if everything is OK this would be in the Afternoon.
    They check everything then put the Visa in the passport, you then check the Visa to make sure dates etc are correct, thats it done and dusted.

    If you have to submit your passport then surely it isn’t an eVisa???

    Singapore is a small place. You are never far from the embassy. Not the case here.

    https://www.thailandvisa.net/visa-re...s/uk-citizens/

    The Thai eVisa application process is a simple application form which is sent electronically and received by email. This form of visa application for Thailand permits travelers to obtain a Thailand tourist visa without having to visit an embassy.
    The visa for Thailand will be available for British travelers on March 1. British citizens can still request a visa from Thai Embassies.

    It seems to refer to visitors visa, I hope non - O and other visas will work in the same way.

    I would find it highly unlikely for Non-Immigrant O Visa, plus the extension of an O Visa requires the Thai spouse to attend for an Interview.
    But hopefully tourist Visas can be done online in the same way as Cambodia / Myanmar for example.

    Australia has a true evisa. You apply on line and once granted, it's just picked up automatically on their systems when you arrive. No physical visa is added to your passport. It's been like that for a long time now.

    not sure if that is an offical site, but it states that a visa on arrival is also possibe, which it isn't. quote from site '' British travelers visiting Thailand can also request a visa upon arrival. The difference between applying for a Thai tourist visa beforehand and requesting a Thai visa upon arrival is the travel period permitted. Requesting a visa upon arrival will give British travelers 15 days less than a visa obtained prior to traveling.'' , unless something new is in the pipe line.

    i read that Vientiane Laos is starting the same procedure.

    Sent email to London Embassy -I have some questions regarding your announcement of evisa from 1 April 2019

    1- according to your video it will require 2 visits to your embassy, one to have visa inserted into passport and another visit to collect passport. How is this an evisa?
    2 - Will you still be accepting postal applications from people who can not visit your embassy?

    Reply - Dear Sir/Madam,
    The evisa is still in progress but basically personal information must register or do application online before you send your passport
    Kind Regards,

    Visa Officer
