The Department of Consular Affairs expands its e-Visa services to 38 locations in 23 countries worldwide

The Department of Consular Affairs has expanded its e-Visa services to 38 locations in 23 countries worldwide. 

     Thailand has applied technology to make it easier for foreigners to obtain visas for entering Thailand, and foreigners may apply for these visas themselves through an online system called e-Visa. This upgrades the visa application process to a modern and digital system.

     Currently, Thai embassies and consulates in foreign countries provide e-Visa services at 38 locations in 23 countries worldwide in order to facilitate services for those foreigners who wish to travel to Thailand. The countries include the following:

There are two types of visa applications:

  2. Applications submitted by a registered representative of the Thai embassy or consulate.

The process of submitting a visa application is as follows:

  1. Create a user account on the website www.thaievisa.go.th, fill out the necessary forms, and upload the relevant documents according to the instructions provided. The applicant does not need to submit his or her passport or any original documents to the embassy;
  2. Pay the visa fee through the secure and diverse e-Payment system;
  3. Once the e-Visa has been approved, an email confirmation will be sent to the applicant. Print the confirmation document and present it to the airline and immigration officers upon arrival in Thailand. In some cases, an interview may be requested to gather additional information.
    The applicant's information for the e-Visa will be recorded in the Visa Data Center for database purposes and will be linked with the immigration office.
