Is Vientiane refusing people with lots of SETVs too?

Recommended Posts

I tried to apply for a SETV in Savannakhet today and was told I couldn't apply. They said I've spent a long time in Thailand and to try again in a few months.

 

If you have a booked appointment in Vientiane are they as strict when it comes to turning people away?

 

I only have one visa from there that is a few years old.

 

Cheers

"...to try again in a few months." - meaning?? Stay out of Thailand for 3(??) months, or just don't apply there for the next couple months?

There are recent reports of now only issuing one TV in any 6 month period.

Both, I think.

 

Like the last poster said 1 every 6 months in Savannakhet.

 

It looked like they just scanned the date I was issued my last SETV and ignored the fact I squeezed a VOA + extension in there.

I got one on Wednesday too but as the previous poster said,  be prepared and bring everything, including a bank statement,  plane flight out booking within the 60 days and a receipt showing accommodation booking with address. If you have no street address you will be rejected.  Look at attachment.

They seem to only want short time, no want long time.

 

Why it matters: Thai Logic.

Do they really require a flight ticket out of the country for a tourist visa now in vte?

What they mean is go to Cambodia, Vietnam or Philippines.
