That is just a demo of how it will work.

This is the actual site for the doing the application. https://thaievisa.go.th/Home/

Since it starts on April 1st you would think they would allow you to set up an account now if you are from the UK.

It has this banner going across the top ot the page.

I actually managed to set up an account and verified my e mail address via a link they e mailed me. Looking at the demo it appears that you have to attach various documents that are required. Seems like for a Non OA they are asking for the police report, medical report etc, flight and hotel bookings. To attach the required documents I can only assume that if you do not have a soft copy of a document ie medical report, that you have to take a photo and then attach that. I cant think of any other way to do it.

You can scan the soft copy using an app on your smartphone if you have one, i use camscanner

A scan of the documents would be better than trying to take a picture of it.

The uploaded copies will have to submitted for all visa applications.

Yes, it beggars belief how they could introduce an e-visa system that results in everything being twice as complicated as the system it replaced, when all you had to do was show up in person or post the application in.

 

Turning up in person to get a visa takes two visits.

I decided not to be a guinea pig for this project, and got my new non-O visa for marriage from Savannakhet.  Now, I can have a stress free family holiday in UK next month without worrying about what might turn into a train wreck.  Haven't had time to season my funds, if they are required (not required before for postal applications), & then waste a day visiting either the embassy or a consul (non near me in England) to get the visa put in my passport.  E-visa? It'a a joke.  e-visas should be on the computer, & no need to get the visa put in your passport.

Most people applied by post.   OK to visit the embassy twice if you live in London

I'm not disagreeing that it is a nonsense.

...is exactly right.

 

But perhaps MFA wants to keep control as opposed to the Immigration Bureau...

A tourist visa from an honorary consulate when you apply in person has typically taken about 30 minutes.

An interesting choice of start date, I think!

 

Will this turn out to be a wind-up, I wonder?

 

All will no doubt be revealed between 00:01 and 11:59 on said date!

If I remember correctly,  online 90 day reporting was inaugurated on April 1st. also.  That turned out well!

Will be interesting to see how this works out !!

I didn’t mind my little jaunt down to the smoke 3 years ago for an OA, overnight coach down, presented docs, did the touristy thing then crashed in a shoebox hotel I’d booked, next day picked up passport and back up to gods country on the coach.

Was quite looking forward to doing it again.

At least, they seem to be allowing appropriate time for development and testing. Although inconvenient (assuming you cannot using honorary consulates or post any more) it may not be a complete disaster.
