Important Information about Non-Immigrant Visas

With the introduction of new procedures for the granting Non-Immigrant Visas, the Royal Thai Consulate at Hull is now providing assistance for the following categories of single entry Non-Immigrant Visa applications:- ‘B’, ‘ED’ and ‘O’

Applicants can email to the Hull Consulate their applications with all supporting documentation. The Hull Consulate then applies to the Royal Thai Embassy in London for authority to issue the visa and, if approved, the applicant will be invited to visit us in person so that the visa can be issued into their passport. This process usually takes 2-3 days but during the peak period of September to January it can take up to 7 days. The advantage to the applicant is that they do not need to visit us until they know they are going to be granted the visa. When the applicant visits the Hull Consulate the visa will be issued within one hour.

For information about the process for applying for Non-Immigrant Visas through the Hull Consulate please visit our Home Page and scroll down to the appropriate visa.

Please note that the Hull Consulate cannot provide this service to persons who will be applying for their visa at the London Embassy.

Applications for all categories of Non-Immigrant Visa can be submitted direct to the Royal Thai Embassy, London, however, they do not provide a checking service so applicants cannot be absolutely sure they will be granted the visa they requested.
