Okay, so the new way of doing things has been in place for about two weeks. As in, in Britain, when you apply for a tourist visa to Thailand, or any other visa, it must be done on-line, on the internet.

Has anybody actually got onto the website, applied for whatever visa, paid for it, and actually got it ?  Surely, by now, there's loads of people who have got a Single Entry Tourist Visa, or whatever other visa, through the website, in England ??

No online visa application for the honorary consulates in the UK. You can still do it in person.

You can get single entry and multiple entry tourist visas. And single entry non immigrant visas.

What's worse is that when you've signed up with the London Embassy eVisa service and start the application process, when you try to put your date of birth in, it doesn't let you enter anything before 1969.  London don't seem to answer the phone or emails, so you're left to work it out that you will have to apply to Hull instead.

 

In Hull, they send the documents you've emailed them to London for approval and when approved you have to travel to Hull in person to get the visa stuck into the passport.  For me, that's a really big trip to do in a day.  Somehow, I don't think the Thais like us any more.

 

Buddha bless the digital age we're living in.

They are not allowed to accept postal applications. You must apply in person. However, the visa is issued while you wait in about 20 minutes, as long as you make an appointment ahead of time.

Hello everybody.

Okay, it was about a month ago when the Thai Embassy in London started a new system, where you had to apply online for any visa, to go to Thailand.

Today is the 14th July. For people who are British, with a British passport, and in England. Is there anybody who has managed to get onto the website, and applied for a visa, any visa, uploaded their passport and other stuff, paid for it, and actually got the visa ?

There's got to be hundreds of people who, by now, have managed to successfully do this. Can you please write here, saying that you've done it. If hardly anybody has managed to get a visa, an evisa, in London, surely, this is disastrous and catastrophic for Thailand ??

Maybe they are put off by the fact that after doing the paperwork online, you still have to go to London to get the visa.?  France has the same problem, do it all online and then go to Paris , which is 900 km from where I live, take a flight and maybe pay 2 nights hotel !!!! I don’t bother and sort it out once over there. Why spend around 300 + euros on a visa ?

Surely, the Thai Embassy in London. What you do is, is that you apply for your visa on the website. You then mail your passport and relevant documents to the Embassy in London. And then, they send the passport back to you, with the correct visa. And they also send you back your documents. There's no need to actually turn up at the Thai Embassy in London ?

Has anybody who is British, who is in England, with the British passport, gone to the website, and got a visa ? There must be loads of people who have already done it. But I do wonder. I'm getting paranoid.
