Royal Thai Embassy in Yangon offers two options for visa appointments

The Royal Thai Embassy in Yangon announced on 20 February that visa application appointments can now be made online. Due to the large number of visa applicants, the Embassy has provided two options for submitting visa applications –online appointment and queue number collection at the Embassy.


To book an appointment online through Visa Appointment Booking Online (VABO) at https://thaiconsu­ or QR Code, appli­cants can submit visa application from Thursday, 22 February 2024 onwards. 200 queue numbers per day will be is­sued for visa appointments, which can be made up to thirty days in advance.


After making the appointment, online applicants are advised to take a screenshot or print out the appoint­ment confirmation e-mailed to them and present it to embassy staff on the date of appointment.


Queue numbers will be availa­ble at the Embassy from 14.00 hrs on Wednesday, 21 February 2024 for visa applications on Thursday, 22 February 2024 and Friday, 23 February 2024 with 200 numbers allocated per day.


Those who wish to obtain a queue number must present their own valid passports and will receive one non-transferra­ble queue number per person. The embassy said that one queue number is valid only for one person and it will blacklist and deny the ap­plication of those who fake the queue numbers or transfer them to others. For in-person applications from 26 February, the Embassy will eval­uate and consider the volume of applications, and make further announcements as to whether or not it will accept the applications only through VABO in the future. — MT/ZN
