But you're now saying France has also ceased issuing multi entry Os????

I don't say that, as I don't know,

but what I can say is I don't see how to ask for Multi Non-O or METV from the Thai eVisa website.

Sorry, but what's the relationship between the Embassies gradually moving to an E-Visa system vs the decision to no longer offer a Multi-Entry O in London? 

 

Is there some reason a Multi-Entry O is somehow incompatible with an E-Visa system?

 

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 relationship is that the E visa system is exactly the same for every country when it switches over to it. There is no separate system per country. Once you create an account, your password works no mater which embassy you enter it from. You log into  a global system. The application isn't dealt with at an embassy. Your uploaded documents go to Bangkok. The only dealings the embassy have with your application is checking your documents which were uploaded and issuing the visa against the bar code you print out when you send the application if when your application is approved. They have no access to the system and cannot dictate which visas can be issued. It's locked to it's parameters. 
And yes, once a country is using E visa, no more ME Non immigrant visas other than the O-A and Non B can be issued.
China, France and the UK can no longer issue any other multiple entry visas now they have moved to E visa application because the system contains no ability to apply for them.

I just got one from Glasgow, they never asked for bank statements, only application form, my passport, wife's ID card and passport and marriage certificate, waited 2 days then told to come and collect it

Thats because there is no change for the marriage requirements

100% he applied for the visa before or on the 14th June. Now he will need to email documents the same as requested in the E visa application, to the consulate first, inc financials and need to wait for confirmation and approval.

 

How to Apply for this Visa at the Royal Thai Consulate, Hull

So that we can obtain authorisation from the London Embassy to issue this visa it is necessary for the applicant to submit to us all documents relative to this visa therefore we request you to email scanned copies of the following to enquiries@thaiconsul-uk.com

  1. Copy of the page of your passport with photo and details (passport must have minimum 6 months remaining validity at time of applying for the visa).
  2. Completed Visa Application Form with two recent passport size photographs attached.
  3. Copy of marriage certificate – if Thai front and back / if UK front only.
  4. Copy of spouse’s Thai ID Card (front and back).
  5. Copy of spouse’s Thai passport page containing photo and details.
  6. Copies of latest three months bank statements which must show applicant’s name and address.

As soon as we receive authority from the London Embassy we will invite you to visit us so that we can issue the visa and you will need to bring with you the following:-

  1. Your passport (minimum 6 months remaining validity and with at least two blank pages for the visa and for entry/exit stamps).
  2. Two recent passport size photographs as available from a photo booth.
  3. Original completed Visa Application Form.
  4. Visa fee from 1 April 2019: £60 (single entry) plus £10 processing charge - total of £70 in cash only.
  5. All the documents as listed above according to your purpose of visit.

So if that's correct, then is the current government (MFA, Immigration, whomever) on a path to entirely eliminate the Multi-Entry O Visa, step by step? 

 

Or, is it just a matter that the E-Visa system is in test mode, and that they'll later add back the Multi-Entry O Visas into the E-Visa system in its later/final versions?

 

And what about the Multi Entry Tourist Visa that Pattaya46 mentioned above as not being able to find in the E-Visa system? That too?

 

PS - I don't think there's any inherent reason about an E-Visa system that would somehow prevent it from working with a Multi Entry visa application -- unless they specifically decided they just weren't going to allow them anymore, or just weren't going to support them yet.

From what I've read elsewhere, the evisa system was written around the Chinese system which never had an option of the Multi Entry O.  As such it's just not there in this first go round.  Will it appear later?  I doubt it.

If you have a current valid Non-Imm "O" Multi Entry, I am presuming you can still do a border run to Mae Sae (for example) just before it expires, to get the additional 90 days?

I am a German, Thai immigration has to meet the necessary standards here. In Germany we have still the old system but my wife which is a lawyer just in case...
The chances to go to court are definitely higher here than in Thailand

Wouldn't diplomatic immunity come into play here?
