STV Application - Alternative to proof of no criminal record


Recommended Posts

5ilver, i am not sure though. Some of us that I know, is about to submit an STV application. We're coming to it. 

I think we will fit in the last category, others. Will update here.

d. Travel related to education, compassionate reasons, or otherwise – the Ministry of Health by completing this form. Successful applicants will be notified via the email registered in this form.

@5ilver An update, it's (d) category that was selected and submitted a request to do pre-departure test, stated reason as STV, and it was approved within hours by the Ministry. Go to any clinic to do pre-departure test, collect all necessary documents, and to the airport.

 

Thai embassy Singapore has just today if i am not wrong, tweaked the requirements. Added more AND OR clauses, even more stringent to fulfil a STV.

OP, I did notice that Clause 1.3 in the Singapore Thai Embassy website as well. Interestingly, even though it's mentioned that an applicant shouldn't have a criminal record in Thailand & country of residence - they also did not mention that you have to provide any specific documents evidencing such.

 

I can't imagine one would have to provide a document for that as for Clause 1.4, it would mean one would have to provide Syphilis/TB/leprosy/Elephantiasis test results as well!

My Uk doctor would not sign. I used my Thai Doctor to issue this. Because of prior illness I have regular doctor in Thailand. Its a stupid requirement I think as well.

Thanks for taking the time to update @daqx07, really glad to hear you got the approval from the Ministry so swiftly.

 

Did you simply state "travelling under STV" as the reason, or do we have to rationalise why are travelling to Thailand in the first place? And did you attach any additional supporting documents with the request?

 

And yes I just checked the Singapore Thai Embassy website, and it seems they now require post-ASQ accommodation to be fully paid upfront (unless one owns a property there) for the duration of stay, on top of proof of finances.

@5ilver yes, just STV. You might want to be cautious on the wordings though, traveling against a governmental advisory is sinful ( to some ). Only an airline ticket is attached.

 

yup, gotta read the long list of the things they wanted as if it's an examination. It's a careless write-up, messy indentation and poorly worded.

Good day @daqx07, hope everything is going smoothly on your end with the STV processing. I was wondering if you could share which provider you went with to fulfil the health insurance requirement for inpatient 400K / outpatient 40K?

 

I've made a number of enquiries and a significant group of insurers are have yet to update their plans for the STV. Basically they are relying on the O-A visa requirements and despite the STV being open to all ages - these insurers are restricting their plans to the same age bands of the O-A visa (i.e. 50 and above). And I was told I can't apply for the policies as I don't meet the age band!

 

The whole shebang is quite the dog's breakfast...

Would a DUI misdemeanor in Canada disqualify someone for the STV?

Probably not. A misdemeanor would not be serious enough for your application not to be approved.
