How to Apply for a Thai Visa in the Philippines

Thailand is a country that is very open to tourists. This can be seen in the fact that foreigners who wish to stay inside Thailand for a few days are not required to obtain a visa. Thus, foreign tourists can just ride an airplane to Thailand to enjoy seeing the temples in Ayuthayya or sunbathing at Pattaya.

The case is different, however, if you are planning to stay in Thailand for a month or more. Thai government will require you to apply for a visa.

Since I will stay in Thailand for six months, I was required to apply for a visa.

Applying for a Thai visa is very easy and very quick. Unlike the other embassies of other countries, the Thai embassy doesn't have long queue of people who are applying for visa. I, for instance, saw no other person applying for a visa when I went to the Royal Thai Embassy in Makati City.



How to Go to Thai Embassy


The Royal Thai Embassy is located along Rada (Thailand) Street in the Central Business District of Makati City. The embassy is just a short walk away from Greenbelt.

Here is the map, from Google, showing the location of the Royal Thai Embassy:

Commuters can reach the embassy by riding a Ayala Avenue-bound jeepney at Mantrade, which is located near the MRT-Magallanes Station. Go down in front of Greenbelt and then walk to the embassy.

Another way to reach the Royal Thai Embassy is by riding a bus that pass along Ayala Avenue. Go down near the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) building and then walk.
 .

Thai Visa Application Schedules


You just don't go to the Royal Thai Embassy and apply for a visa. You have to follow the Consular Section's schedule so your time will not be wasted. The schedule can be seen at this page of the Royal Thai Embassy website.

Application for a visa are only entertained from 9:30 AM to 12:00 noon. Visa are released from 3:00 PM to 5 PM.

The Royal Thai Embassy is open from Monday to Friday but it is closed during holidays. The embassy follows the holiday schedules of both Philippines and Thailand so it is good to check if the the Royal Thai Embassy schedule at this page of their website.
 .

Thai Visa Requirements


Here are the requirements for the Thai visa application:

1. Application form and supplement form, which can be downloaded here (PDF).
2. Two 3.5 cm by 4.5 cm photos taken within the last six months.
3. Your Philippine passport.
4. Other supporting documents that will help in the approval of your Thai visa application.
5. Payment of 2,900 Philippine pesos for a single-entry Thais visa or 7,100 Philippine pesos for multiple-entry Thai visa.

You just have to wait for 2 days to know if the Royal Thai Embassy approved your visa application or not.

    1. Hello Anonymous.

      I applied for the Business visa because I went here to Thailand for a work-related activity. So, I submitted a document showing the invitation of an organization in Thailand to join the training that they're offering.

      If your just visiting Thailand then what you need is just the Tourist visa, which entitles you to a 3-month stay (if single entry visa) or 1-year stay (if multiple entry visa).

      Whatever kind of visa that you apply for, you will be required to leave Thailand at the end of 3 months.

      Sorry for the late reply. Hope this helped.

    1. You may collect your passport on Monday if there's no problem with your passport or visa application. It depends upon the embassy.

      As for the affordable accommodation in the area, there are a lot of small hotels and motels near the Thai embassy and airport. I haven't tried any hotel in Makati so I can't give you a good recommendation. The only hotels I can think of is the Avitel Hotel in South Super Highway and the Eurotel near Don Bosco Church.

      That is my opinion. Of course, it would be good if you contact POEA regarding your concern.

Same din po ba ang needs for those staying for 30 days Tourist visa.

    1. I think na OK lang na kumuha ka ng 60-day tourist visa . Ang requirement nga lang nila ay magpakita ka ng proof na may sapat kang pera for your stay in Thailand at return ticket na pasok dun sa date na tina-target mo. Hihingin yung proof na ito depende kung gaano ka-istrikto yung staff ng Thai embassy na makakausap mo.

      Hindi ko po alam yung presyo ng tourist visa kaya hindi ko masasagot ang tanong mo na "magkano".

  49. Hi Ishmael, nag-inquire ako by phone yesterday ss embassy and they sent me the requirements for business visa via email which are as follows:

    NON-IMMIGRANT “B” VISA – MEETING/TRAINING PURPOSES/WORKSHOP/CONFERENCE
    1. Letter of request from the employer
    2. Signatory of the letter of request in lieu of #1
    If: Thai national – Copy of Thai government ID
    If: Foreigner – Copy of passport and valid Thai visa page, copy of work permit with validity
    3. Business Registration of the company in Thailand
    4. Guarantee Letter from the company in the Philippines
    5. Employment Certificate from the company in the Philippines stating salary
    6. Valid passport/travel document (at least 6 months)
    7. 2 passport or 2x2 size photos (white background)
    8. Airline ticket reservation (one way is acceptable)
    9. Accomplished application form ( For visa application forms visit www.thaiembassymnl.ph and click consular services)


    Im just wondering if you were given the same list before and yet they only asked for Letter of Invitation. I'll be visiting thailand for Training purposes. kelangan ko kayang kumpletuhin lahat yan kc in your case way back 2012, parang minimal lng requirements. Kind Regards.

    1. Walang binigay sa akin na ganyang listahan. Posible na nagbago na rin kasi yung requirements ng Thai embassy.

    1. Wala namang nangyaring interview sa akin noong kumuha ako ng Visa. So I think hindi ka rin nila i-interview.

  51. I am an American Citizen living long term in the Philippines, I would like to get a 1 year multi entry type 0 visa like I have had before. Do I have to go all the way back to a Thai Embassy in the U.S. Or can I get this at the Thai Embassy in Makati?

    1. I am not sure about this but I think you can get a Visa in the Thai embassy in Makati.

      Of course, it is better if you ask the Thai Embassy about this.

  55. Planning to study in Thailand gov't university this coming year. Ask ko land po, base on some article regarding foreign student who holds ED-visa, 90 days lang po pwede mag-stay then babalik po sa bansa, it means po ba kailangan mag-stay ng 30 days sa Pilipinas and file another ED-visa to continue yung course na pinili mo sa University na yun? Do I need to file and pass another documents or I can file for an ED-Visa extension in Bangkok immigration instead? Hope to hear from you. Thank you.

    Koroshi.

    2. Nagtanong sila kung bakit ako pupunta ng Thailand, etc. Kung hindi ka kaduda-dudang tao ay hindi ka naman masyadong tatanungin ng Immigration Officers.

  67. Hi po Sir Ishmael,

    Currently OFW ako sa middle east, nahire ako ng isang company sa Thailand and na advise ako ng HR nila na need ko daw umuwi sa pinas at e apply ang non-immigrant visa ko sa manila. Sa tagal ko na nag aabroad sa ibang bansa ngayon lang ako nakaranas na ako pa pupunta ng pinas para mag apply ng visa, usually kasi apply lang nila ako ng tourist visa then sila magprocess sa Residence visa at working permit ko like in UAE, Qatar and Vietnam, dahil direct hire sa ibang bansa. Then paparegister na ako sa Embassy or Consular pag pabakasyun na ako. Worried lang ako, baka pag umuwi ako at nag apply ng non-immigrant isa, baka di ako maka alis kaagad baka padaanin pa ako sa agency, medical at PDOS which is ang tagal ng process.
    Please advise po. Appreciate po if you can response on this matter at the earliest.
    Maraming salamat po in advance.
    Regards,

    1. Hi. Hindi ko masasagot yang tanong mo. Ang naiisip ko lang ay baka iba ang proseso ng Thailand sa prosesa jan sa Middle East kaya ganyan yung pinapagawa sa iyo.

      I suggest na tawagan mo yung HR ng company na nag-hire sa iny tapos i-suggest mo yung procedure na nasabi mo dito sa comment.

  68. Hi Sir Ishmael, Thank you sa pagsagot mo agad at maraming salamat sa suggestion mo. I will suggest and inform them accordingly.
