Are all countries now issuing tourist visas regardless of the number of corona infections?


Recommended Posts

Only the new single entry tourist visa is being issued by the majority of embassies and official consulates.

Only those in low risk countries are issuing the special tourist visa (STV).

That is a  requirement for one to be issued set by government. It was created to attract well off tourists from some countries.

Just forget about STV and apply for SETV (Single Entry Tourist Visa), less requirements and easier to get.

Ask your local Thai embassy or consulate about it.

I am also preparing SETV, but it is very difficult to contact the Royal Thai embassy Seoul. There are currently 8,000 Thai people who are eligible to return to Thailand from Korea.

The latest from Cambodia (quote):-

COVID-19 pandemic update – updated Nov 5, 2020

Visas to Cambodia can only be obtained at a Cambodian embassy or consulate, and tourist visas are not available. Visa exemptions, visa-on-arrival, and electronic visas are currently suspended.

I would point out that most countries under lockdown have hotels and guest houses closed so it is unlikely you would get a tourist visa issued as you would not legally have booked accommodation. 

 

Unfortunately it's not really a good time to plan a holiday. I'd give it 8-12 months if I were you.

They have not updated the page on their website since September 9th. The 500k baht in the bank was recently removed from the requirements by the MFA. See: https://wellington.thaiembassy.org/th/publicservice/17622-tourist-visa

Perhaps you should contact them about it.

They are still showing the financial requirement for the STV that were removed last month.
