UK Embassy changes appointment system

British citizens wanting notarial or documentary services from their embassy in Bangkok will need to make appointments online from March 23, the embassy has announced.

In the announcement, issued today (March 11) the embassy explained, “From March 23, 2015, British nationals needing to visit the Consular Section of the Embassy in Bangkok in person for notarial and documentary services must make an online appointment in advance.

The online booking service will replace the current first-come-first-served queuing system.

Thanks for info Thaiga. Could save an abortive trip.  I was down there a couple of weeks ago to get a letter notarized but they would not do it. I had to write out the gist of the letter on to a Statutory Declaration form which was then notarized.

Not sure how online booking for an appointment will help those of us in Korat.  If you are given a 9am appointment then that will mean a very early bus plus good luck with the traffic jams.  No doubt it is all part of the Embassy's efforts to "improve" the service.

By the way does anyone have experience of getting visas for Saudi Arabia?.

Always nice to get a thankyou TT. Something of a rarity theses days +1 to you. ;)

I was there monday for my marry permission stamp.
I have a long time friend in BKK who emailed me the correct forms to fill in and return.

Elite & Express Visa Services. He speaks good english does all translations, settlement visas, ect ect.

The trip takes about 4hrs from my home, but parking is a problem. the best way is to park in don mueng airport and the taxi from there is 300 bht to the embassy.
