Tourist Visa from London Embassy


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

As a first step, a friend wants to apply for a tourist visa from the Royal Thai Embassy in London. Unfortunately they cannot find the application page or a list of requirements.

 

I can't get anywhere with their website either.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

A visa to visit Thailand?

 

A moot point as you can't get into Thailand.

@ubonjoeThe applicant doesn't have a Tourist Visa, and on the COE application page it states that a visa must be obtained before applying for the COE.

 

How do they apply for a tourist visa from the embassy in London? I can't find any information on the embassy website about how to apply.

 

Here is a screenshot from the COE website:

It can be started without the visa. If you read further it says you can.

That is the page to do the registration.

The main page is here. https://thaievisa.go.th/Home/

I suggest he have a look at the instruction manual first. Or have it open as he goes through process of dong the application. Many people have had problems doing it.

Just checked the Cardiff Consulate regarding Single Entry Tourist Visa 

The Cardiff Consulate has been closed since March, but now open by appointment.

From the web site -

“The Thai Government are now allowing a select number of tourists to enter Thailand, this also applies to U.K Nationals. These applicants can apply for a Single Entry Tourist Visa Only (30 day visa exemption is still suspended), however, they must meet strict qualifying criteria, prior to booking an appointment applicants must send in advance the following by e-mail to thaiconsular@yahoo.com

1) Passport copy

2) Application form (this can be downloaded from our website, follow the link at the bottom of the page)

3) UK Bank statements from previous 6 months showing a balance exceeding 3000 GBP during the whole period, if travelling as a couple with joint bank account then the amount is 5000 GBP.

4) Utility Bill showing residency in Wales (this is due to travel restrictions set by the Welsh/English Governments differing - and likely to change)

Once we confirm everything is in order, we will contact you to arrange an appointment, where you will need to bring with you

1) Passport with minimum 6 months remaining from the date you are due to depart from Thailand

2) 2 Recent passport photos

3) 50 GBP Cash to cover visa and admin fee

Once you receive the visa you must then book your Insurance (this must include minimum 100,000 usd cover for medical costs associated with Covid-19), flights, and your 14 day quarantine (at your expense) in the Alternative State Quarantine in Chonburi (prices start at 27,000 Baht), you can then apply for the Certificate of Entry, unfortunately we cannot assist with the Certificate Of Entry or ASQ Booking, however further details can be found by following the below links”

It appears flight and hotel bookings are not required for the visa application!

Seems so daft that the English Consulates are still closed  because of our idiotic policies. I always thought the UK (ie the United Kingdoms) was one country devolution has divided us significantly

@ubonjoe Is there a way of applying for the Tourist Visa first? My friend doesn't really want to start the COE process with all the expenditure that entails without being in possession of a visa.

He can but he would not get very far doing the application without the flight confirmation and the $100k covid 19 insurance proof.

The COE application can be started without the visa and they issue a pen number to complete the application after the visa is issued.

You are not wrong many times UJ but here you are. Uploading the visa is part of stage 1 of the COE, process. You cannot pass Stage 1 and get the 6 digit pin without it. The process is apply for the TV. As part of that they ask you to enter flight and accomodation details. Many people are creating a proposed booking and taking a screenshot and uploading that. Some are booking the flight and ASQ and uploading.

Once  you are issued the visa you upload to the COE site at Stage 1 along with passport, visa details. You given a 6 digit Pin to check progress. After you are pre approved you upload insurance, flight and ASQ to get the COE.

Edit from the main COE page

 

After visa has been granted, tourist visa holders have to apply for the certificate of entry at https://coethailand.mfa.go.th/ , with submission of bank statements, health insurance, confirmed flight and ASQ hotel booking, as stated above.
