Welcome to the Royal Thai Consulate in Hull, Yorkshire

The Royal Thai Consulate in Hull was opened in 1922 and was the first consulate for Thailand (then Siam) to be established in the United Kingdom.

The first Consul was Sir James Bell, a ship-owner who traded with Siam. The present Consul, Mr Alan Taylor, was appointed in 1980.

The main roles of the Hull consulate are:

  • Issuing visas to people wishing to visit Thailand
  • Providing accurate information to all enquiries
  • Encourage business relations between Thailand and the UK
  • Provide support and assistance to Thai nationals in the UK

More Visa Info


Thailand is a hugely popular tourist destination. Almost one million Britains visit Thailand for tourism purposes each year with nearly half being return visitors. More UK nationals visit Thailand than any other nation within the EU.

Thailand has long been known for the rich diversity of its attractions, but the continuing development of the Kingdom’s tourism means that there are still more waiting to be discovered.

A land of golden temples stunning tropical beaches and forested hills, Thailand is a veritable oasis in an increasingly hectic world. Secure in its devotion to the Buddhist faith and to its beloved King, it merges a centuries-old culture with way of life that preserves its identity and gracious natural hospitality.

For sightseeing and travel, Thailand has few equals. From dazzling temples and palaces to awe-inspiring World Heritage Sites; from timeless rural settlements to vibrant resort towns; from idyllic beaches to national parks where wild nature rules, the choice of where to go and what to see is limitless.
