Following the introduction of the electronic visa system (E-Visa) in June 2019, the Royal Thai Embassy in Paris will launch the visa application without a sticker (“stickerless“) in late September 2021.
This means that the visa application process will become 100% digital, so the applicant will no longer need to drop off or pick up their passport at the Embassy.
This change will significantly save travel costs and applicant time, as well as minimize physical contact during the current health crisis.
In preparation for this change, the Embassy wishes to inform potential visa applicants that:
1. Applicants who finalize the application in the E-Visa system BEGINNING September 17, 2021 at 7:00 PM will receive their visa directly in the E-Visa system. The visa will be ready for download as of September 30, 2021.
2. Applicants who finalize the application in the E-Visa system BEFORE September 17, 2021 at 7:00 PM will receive their visa still as a sticker on their passport. They must then come and deposit the passport at the Embassy according to the date and time indicated on the invitation (E-Appointment) but in any case no later than Monday, September 20, 2021 at 12:00 noon, even if they have obtained an appointment after that day.
3. The E-Visa system will not be accessible from September 23, 2021 at 12:00 noon until September 27, 2021 at 01:00 a.m. due to computer maintenance.
All the information about applying for a visa at the Royal Thai Embassy in Paris is available on http://www.thaiembassy.fr/fr/visa-rdv/infos-generales/ and will be updated regularly.
The Embassy can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions regarding visa application and travel to Thailand for non-Thai nationals.
