Got METV in Australia with no residency / employment requirements.

Recommended Posts

The Tourist Visa application 'Form A' from the Royal Thai Consulate - Perth also asks:

14 What is your purpose of visiting? And then asks you to sign and date the following:

DECLARATIONS: I have read and agreed to the above conditions. The information I have given is true, correct and complete to the best of my knowledge

And then?

Purpose would be extended tourism wouldn't it? Hence a 6 (9) month visa being available

Yes -- and for one or two METV applications, that answer should be fine. But after more, for a non-retired person, that answer as a "true, correct and COMPLETE" declaration as to Purpose might start to wear a little thin.

I have no idea what is METV? I am not inclined to read this tread anyway, no time for it.

Please take the time to read this. I beg you. If you don't I will be devastated.

Now back to real life. It sounds like posters are saying Americans can get an METV in Australia though that's not what the OP said. Does someone know that this is possible for certain?

Over time may we may find that more consulates and embassies will relax these rules and realize , that people going on long holidays will not have an employer to go back home.

Kind of absurd to think that anyone will keep a job open for you for up to 9 months.

Is it not the key issue here that having enough funds to sustain your visit the main objective of the rules.

Just my opinion.

My partner and I applied here in Bangkok at the Australian visa office for a visa to Australia over a year ago. She is Thai and without asking for a METV received one which I didn't realise for about 6 months.

That is what OP said.

It's written on the consulate websites there, that you don't need to an Australian national. The Melbourne website seems to be down at the moment, but this is the application form for Canberra:

From the second page this is all you need to show:

Great, this thread is about us receiving visas for Thailand though. Applying in Oz. :)

Note that while the above jpg for Canberra mentions 'adequate finances in the past six months" the Perth Application form A does not mention any time requirement:

Perth: (Documents require) A BANK'S CERTIFICATE OF BALANCE showing a balance of the amount equal to and not less than $8,000AUD or 200,000 Baht if applying for METV.

Try get a refundable air ticket or one where u can change date and/or destination at no extra cost.

It would be interesting to see if the Oz Thai consulates issues METV to non-Brits. For historical reasons, Oz extends various services to Brits that may not be available to citizens of other countries, Medicare, applications for British passports at the Post Office, etc.
