Wow, this is going to cause a lot of worry and anxiety for many, and it must play havoc with the visa run companies. I wonder if other embassies and consulates in the region will see an increase in visa applicants in what could be a spillover from people who would have otherwise used Vientiane?

I would think that this is a load of crap and it is typical of Thai mind games. Over egging the actual reasons trying to make it look like Thailand is the place that people want to come to because of the dwindling numbers

Please God don't make this destroy the wonderful, quiet, easy, peaceful, pleasant Muk-Sav border crossing & visa processing.

Spotlight comments like that....will.

But some cannot show the financial requirememts at savana to get a TV (hand-to-mouth) and so must go Vient....also they can reject at the window prior to paying at Savana. if they don't like the look of the inside of your passport....= stuffed to gills with TVs

At least you can turn up for an appointment time & guarantee being seen. As apposed to sitting in a queue all day hoping your ticket number is called out.

Just can't please some people !!!!

Could this delay be due to the recent changes to the retirement visa, with the embassy now seeing its 1st influx of applications from people who don’t have 400/800 baht in the bank ?

No, not at all.

There's an agent here that has some sort of connect at Vientiane consulate and is able to legit book people on any date. The bookings appear on the booking site and all, with the requested date and correct name.

..go to Savanaket..

 

Savannakhet is more strict, you need to show onward ticket within 60 days and Bank Statement for Tourist Visa, in case of Non Immigrant visa you have to address your documents to Royal Thai Consulate Savannakhet.

The Thai Embassy in London will only accept visa applications online from the 1st of April, If approved you have to make a appointment to go to the Embassy to have the visa put into your passport.

The visa fees are also going up From £125 to £150 for a non 'O' multiple entry with all other visas rising pro rata.

Onward ticket isnt required for TV at Savanakhet and bank statements are not always required either

Is it possible (from the online application request) to work out how many available slots there are per day ?

  Somedays there would be 600 + TV applications and if they have limited them to 400 per day , that would explain why the bookins are full
