To get a tourist visa one needs a bank statement now? I can't see this helping tourism.

I applied one month ago with all the paperwork, bank statement; cash NOT accepted.

Air ticket available if required.

 

The bank statement is mandatory and advisable to have an outbound air ticket,

 

They count tourists visa already issued in the area,now after three in a row it may be a refusal.I was advised if i required a fourth i would need to provide some documents to support my current medical tourism.

Savannakhet would be a nice second option for those who can get there on their own, but the visa run companies are carting people over there now at least twice a week which will likely speed up that consulate being also harder to fetch a visa from. It's a shame. With bank statement, that consulate was one of the easiest places to get a visa, just a little harder to get to. The visa run companies actually make it harder for people who go to get their own visas.

Avoid going on a Monday to any consulate. I did my Non O couple months ago, went on a Wednesday, only 5 people at the consulate. In and out in 5 minutes.

Savannakhet has been wanting to see a bank statement showing at least the equivalent of 20k baht in a bank account for a long time.

I suspect then number of people showing up there without one tried to get an appointment for Vientiane where is not required but could not get one or showed up without one.

A visa run company that goes there has this on their website.

"Tourist Visa if show own Book Bank with balance THB 20,000.- up OR Bank Statement from home country value USD 700.-up & confirmed onward air ticket within 60 days upon entry."

As said best to avoid Mondays at any embassy or consulate on a Monday.
