E visa registration problem.....................

Recommended Posts

I have just tried to sign up for an individual account on the new evisa website. I have tried 3 times to fill out the reasonably simple online form and everytime I get 'access denied' with 'try again' or return to 'home'. Typically Thai it doesnt tell me why it has failed! Could it be photo criteria? My uploaded photo is not of a passport standard. Or could it be the phone number. I tried my home number and my mobile, leaving the first zero in and out after the +44. I am thoroughly peed off with having to scroll to the UK at the end of the countries menu which it forces u to do 4 times for each attempt. Also they cant even set up the scrolling to the year of birth to go back before 1969 so u have to click 1969  then scroll back again to your year of birth (if its before 1969)!!! Has anyone had similar problems or have any advice on what to do please?

Its OK folks, I just tried again and this time was successful. I haven't a clue why! I used my UK home phone number omitting the zero after +44 and leaving no gap between the STD code and the actual number.

I think I recall that I initially had this problem and it was because I didnt login, or hadnt set up a username and password, but once I did, I wasnt asked for it! I can only suggest that u go to the website of your country's Embassy and follow directions from there to set these up. If u have already done this and logged in all I can suggest is that u phone your embassy or a consulate for help. AND THEY WONDER WHY TOURIST NUMBERS ARE PLUMMETING!

You take the printed application form, photo, passport and any other documents you uploaded.

 

According to collection information, you submit passport and documents via the appointment date/time, but collect the following day.

Don’t think that’s quite right.......you submit all documents online .....you then get appointment to go and collect visa....but it seems you have to take all documents with you......I thought the whole point of this system was submit all paperwork online and then your visa is approved or rejected,,,,I.e. if they give you appointment visa should already be approved,,,,,,seems this is not the case ,will take everything I up loaded and more with me tommorow ...11 am is my appointment.

If you are tech savy, Firefox allow you to replay and or modify any request via the web console. F12 and then network tabs.

The appointment is to submit your passport.

Ok little update for ya ..went to London embassy to hand my stuff in ,no worries all done pick passport and visa up tommorow 11 to 12.

some notes 

the embassy was full of tourists trying to get visa ,Thai woman walking around telling everyone have to apply online first,,many people just leaving an old couple had been sitting there with there ticket for 45 minuits ,they gave me there ticket when they left so I jumped 10 people in the queue.

constant stream off people coming in while I was there again they not done online application.

the appointments are waste of time.you still have to take a ticket number when you arrive...my appointment was 11-11:30am I arrived 10:15 am and was outta of there by 10:50am.

APPLICATION FORM

i was applying non b based on working,in big red writing on the application form says all foreign documents need to be translated to English and certified by relevant embassy.

all my documents where in English apart from 9 page company registration document,only uploaded the first page off this to the online system in Thai language and it seemed to be fine.

while I was in process of doing application they added 2 more requirements to the list financial requirements and confirmation British citizen,for financial requirements just uploaded one bank statement that showed a nice balance but no money going into the account for 6 months and for proof of British citizen just uploaded copy of passport with a sentence saying I confirm I am British citizen since birth ..they accepted all this,,,didn’t need to to take any photographs with me.

I think the part that I've quoted really sucks - despite uploading all the documents well before, you STILL need to attend the embassy twice. An epic waste of time, it's the most inefficient "eVisa" process I've ever come across anywhere.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more of a discussion on this new online visa application nonsense. This was the first I knew about major changes for applying for a 60-day visa until I went to their Thai Embassy website to check visa prices. To my horror I saw: From 15 June 2019, visa applicants have to apply online. I take it that it's no longer possible to apply for a visa by post anymore? I thought this was a good service and much more convenient than having to make 2 trips to the embassy on certain given dates. Does anyone know why the postal service was abolished? I can't understand why they've gone and changed it to be honest. Also, the added requirement of getting a recent bank statement, scanning it, then uploading it seems rather excessive just for a 60-day visa. I can perhaps understand this for a 6-month visa, but a 60-day is only an additional 30-days to a bog-standard visa exempt which requires nothing of the sort. Also, the requirement fields of accommodation and travel booking confirmations would be blank until I have total confirmation that I have the visa first. Why would I book and pay for these without knowing if I can get a visa or not? I used to fill these on the form as TBC (to be confirmed) once I have the visa. Is that still acceptable or possible anymore? It certainly used to be.

 

Can anyone tell me the exact procedure and how they approached it, please? For instance, do they still stick a full-page visa in your passport even though they're calling it an e-visa?

Also, from filling out the online form, did you leave any fields vacant such as your travel booking confirmation and accommodation? Do you think this would prove problematic if I didn't upload anything in these fields? 

 

Again, I have to ask why did they abolish the postal service for a 60-day tourist visa?

Apologies, folks. I've just noticed on the PDF of the Guide To E-Visa Application that it's still possible to choose a Postal Application whereby I can send the documents by post. Has anyone chosen this method? If so, can they please enlighten me to how things have changed from the previous postal method?

The big change is that you have to complete the online application and send a printout of it with your passport and supporting documents.

Quote

Required Documents (from 15 June 2019):

Passport/Travel Document which must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of  application for single entry, or at least 1 year for multiple entry, and has at least 2 blank pages. Applicants must fill in online visa application with their given name(s) and surname as appear in their passports.

- Printout of visa application form submitted online, with bar code

- Copies of supporting documents 

- Fee for return post of £10 in cash (only Bank of England bank notes are accepted) and the return address, or enclose stamped and addressed envelope (recommended to use the postage stamps rather than a franking stamp from the post office as franking stamps can only be used on the date of purchase)
