I'm not sure most Americans are or would be getting their Non-O visas from the Thai Embassy in London.

Please name me a country that issues a multiple entry 1 year visa without much qualification.

 

I am from the UK and my Thai wife got a ME tourist visa for Canada for the duration of her passport, about three and a half years.

So it sounds like this is only for UK. Not USA, Canada or Australia?

Importantly this is an online setup that has retained a multi entry option.

Not the same, China was the first country followed by the UK and I believe that France is next.

Did the China and Paris Embassies/Consulates discontinue offering Multi-Entry O's when they transitioned to the E-Visa system?  I don't recall reading anything about that here....

 

The Non O Me option is just not available under the online(E visa) system. I did a dummy application on the Chinese version several weeks ago and pointed out that the ME was not available, but it was ridiculed by some on this forum.

The title of this thread made it as if it was a London or UK change only, but it's not.

My country, France, changed the same way, 

with mandatory usage of the new Thai eVisa Online System https://www.thaievisa.go.th/

I don't know which countries already move to this ??

 

I bet that progressively people of all countries will have to use this website, and so that mean at term exactly the same rules for Visa whatever country you are in.

 

Edit: From the News on the French Thai-Embassy website, China started using this system in February; UK & France in June; others to follow...

Would this also mean anyone arriving visa exempt or tv and planning a 1900 baht 30 day extension now have the added expense of having to pay for a change of return flight details ?

I always book an exit ticket with frequent flyer miles when I run into this and cancel it after I pass immigration. The miles just go back to my account and it costs nothing.

WHat are people basing their opinion that they are going to eliminate the possibility of non o multiple at all consulates on?

The Thais have said that the online system will be used by all embassies and consulates within 3 years.  Very unlikely they will meet the timeframe but sooner or later everyone will be in the same boat, bit unfortunate the UK was 2nd on the list, could have quite easily been the USA as the 2nd guinea pig. Wouldn't surprise me if Theresa May's "hostile environment" had something to do with it.

Thanks for that info re France. LoveThailandElite had mentioned above that China and France had recently gone to the E-Visa system, but he made no mention of the Multi-Entry O Visas also having been suspended there. But you're now saying France has also ceased issuing multi entry Os????

 

Still, the unanswered question here is... why does moving to an E-Visa system somehow have to impact the Embassies' ability to issue Multi-Entry Os, but apparently can still do everything else?
