Two week wait for tourist & non-immigrant visa appointments at Thai Embassy in Vientiane

Recommended Posts

I think the Thai Embassy in Vientiane just became Americanized!

 

(i.e., We are required to help you, but we really do not want to be bothered. So we will change the long established rules (1979), and Outreach Schedules to make it as inconvenient as possible.)

It could well be a trick from the TAL (tourism authority lao)

to decrease their stock of Laobeer. Instead of seeing these

runners skipping strolling through the stalls that Laos offers.

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

after the 20th March they reduced to actual 250 bookings....

Their reasoning that the number of applicants has grown a lot is ridiculous. For each visa, they collect a princely 1000 (tourist) or 2000 (non immigrant) baht. You'd think they could hire some extra consular officers to cope with the increase in applications.

what they loose due to this is peanuts against the offer they do to lure the Indians and Chinese. Not forget FREE Visa on arrival from November to April, each valued at THB 2,000.-. This leave me speechless, but further comments are sensitive..... BTW I also enjoy the statistics from TAT.

Last month on my way back I went to Malaysia and Indonesia. Quite a different feeling there. 

Don't confuse feelings with visa requirements. Indonesia retirement visa requirements are risible and Malaysia has higher hurdles than Thailand and seemingly changed the deal on people.

as part of a visa run company, this is not possible. The slots are handled online. There are also holidays on 8th and not announced by Embassy that 11th and 12th is a voting day , so no slot available, even visa run companies can not go. 

We update our website daily. 

After we have confirmed our appointment with the Vientiane Embassy do we then have to either email or phone your company to book our trip? 

 

Your website is not very clear on this

The cynic in me thinks that, should the price be right, an 'opening' will magically appear.

 

 

 

 

Dream on......
