Meet requirements for single entry tourist visa, application still sent back


Recommended Posts

I applied for the single entry tourist visa from the Thai Consulate in Los Angeles on November 12th through the electronic application system for visa and COE. I purchased insurance, booked my flight, purchased ASQ, uploaded the photographs, etc and uploaded everything.

 

I inquired from the Royal Thai Embassy in Washington DC if I may meet the financial requirement across two bank accounts. They replied.

 

"Submitting multiple bank statements will suffice, so long as the amount meets our requirements for entry. With regards to flights into Thailand, there are two types: repatriation flight and semi-commercial flights. You can read more about it here (scroll down 1/4 page): https://thaiembdc.org/2020/11/05/trsingle_entry/"

Visa Section
Consular Office,
Royal Thai Embassy,

Washington, DC 20008.
E-mail - visa@thaiembdc.org"
 
I therefore uploaded detailed bank statements for two accounts with a total in excess of the required $17,000 for each of the last six months. However, I received a message that I do not meet the financial requirements. I reorganized the statements, wrote an index, tried different labels, combined the different statements by month for each bank, etc. They keep telling me I don't meet the financial requirements. 
 
It is a very frustrating situation. If they don't issue a visa in time I stand to lose my flight booking, ASQ, insurance, etc. I have started CC'ing the embassy in my replies. 
 
Has anyone managed to get this visa? Is there some special way you packaged together your bank statements?

They have changed them. Now only $700 in the bank is needed to meet the standard 20k baht requirement for visas.

Maybe, you can circumvent the Los Angeles consulate. Do you have relatives/friends with an address within the coverage area of the Washington embassy you could use for the application?

Think he may have to be careful about that on online application page it says.

The LA consulate are now only requiring to show 20,000 baht in bank  and not for 6 months now for STV.    

It does look like it. 

https://thaiembdc.org/2020/11/05/trsingle_entry/

But I still don't see how I get test results 72 hours before  a flight?  I had a test 9 days ago on a Tuesday.  Results not until Friday.   A buddy  took test on wed and got results  on Monday.    Is it  required 72  hours before a person begins travel even if a domestic US flight?

You only need $700 in the bank on the day you apply. The $700 is their equivalent of the standard 20k baht required for a visa application.
