Situation 2. Process a Thailand Visa outside Europe
For the applicants who are not living in countries where we mentioned in the (Situation 1.), they can still apply for a visa for Thailand at the Thai Consulate in Europe. The condition of this visa application is: The applicant must ask a third party such as: relatives or familiar in the countries of Europe to represent him/her in sending his/her passport and the documents to the Thai Consulate in Europe.

The next step, we will email him/her back the prepared application form and all paperworks, including the updated Checklist File which issued from the Thai consulate.
After receiving our documents, it would differ lightly from the process in Europe, the applicant must send his/her passport and our prepared documents to the third party’s address in Europe. Then the third party (the applicant’s relatives or intimate) just have to proceed as we indicate in the Checklist before sending the applicant’s passport and all items to the Thai Consulate in Europe. They will match our documents with the applicant’s visa application and will return his/her passport with a visa stamped through the self-addressed envelope by the Certified Mail Service.
