  1. UK holiday visa

    Also have a read of the pinned topic at the top of this forum, as any specific questions you may have on this thread. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  2. consent for home office

    I think the UKVI are just covering their backs in the case of any data protection violations. I think they are asking the applicant to confirm that they are content for those mentioned to be contacted in the event the decision maker has a question, as your wife is the applicant I think she should sign all of them.
  3. Two men face perjury charge in Jomsap case

    Arguementative/baiting post removed.
  4. This is the Consular List from the Thai MFA, there's no email address and the link to the website doesn't work, maybe the phone numbers may get you through to the relevent department, assuming they work of course. http://www.mfa.go.th/main/en/information/1694/25845-LAOS.html
  5. Shengen Italy for Thai?

    My wife applied via their Visa Application Centre, the process was fairly quick and the visa issued quite quickly though she applied as the spouse of an EU National which is quicker and requires less documentation, we did have to compain regarding incorrect information given by the staff, and did receive an apology. http://www.vfsglobal.com/italy/thailand/index.html They prefer applicants to use the Application Centre but you can make an appoinment to lodge the application directly at the Embassy. http://www.ambbangkok.esteri.it/ambasciata_bangkok/en/informazioni_e_servizi/visti/
  6. No there's no actual requirement to show a return ticket, either when leaving Bangkok or on arrival in the UK. That said on arrival at the UK Border the Border Force Officer will need to be satisfied that the holder of the visa is still a genuine visitor who will leave the UK at the conclusion of their visit, the traveller might be asked to show a return ticket or if they don't have one they may be asked for evidence that they have the means to purchase one. So the simple answer to your question is that there's no requirement to have a return ticket.
  7. As you're asking about travel into Thailand, I'll move your question to the appropriate forum. You say your wifes passport was voided, does that mean her passport was actually marked as void or simply that it had expired? Thai people can enter Thailand on an expired passport, an epired passport can be used as proof of her citizenship, and thus her right to enter, but she cannot leave on it.
  8. As you're asking about travel to, or staying in, Thailand, I'll move your post to the correct forum
  9. UK visa question

    Your friend should apply for a Settlement Visa for his wife, if their child has a British Passport a visa isn't required, a British birth certificate isn't necessary if the Thai one was used to obtain a British Passport. Your friend will need to demonstrate that thy meet the financial requirements, either with an income or cash savings, evidence of the £90k in cash savings would be enough. Your friends wife will need to pass a simple English test and provide evidence that she's free from TB, they will need to provide evidence of suitable accomodation in the UK. The application has to be made online, and an application fee and NHS Surcharge needs to be paid at the same time. Applicants have to attend the Visa Application Centre near Asoke, details in the link below, applications are processed in Sheffield. Refer your friend to the pinned topic near the top of the forum and get him to read this http://www.vfsglobal.co.uk/thailand/ Settlement supporting documents guide.pdf Appendix_FM_1_7_Financial_Requirement_August_2015.pdf
  10. Originals, copies or both?

    When my wife applied recently for a visit visa she took original documents and translated copies, they were checked by VFS staff and the originals returned on the spot. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  11. Seems that those dreaded fuel surcharges are back for paid, reward flights and upgrades on Thai. http://news.royal-orchid-plus.com/home/info/novdec2017/basic/en/137 Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  12. Some documents are only dealt with by post, if you need to go in person you need to make an appointment, be aware that some items cannot be certified by the Embassy. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/notarial-and-documentary-services-guide-for-thailand
  13. I'm not sure that I'd be going to the expense of the "Council accommodation certificate", it's certainly not a requirement, but as you've already seemed to arranged it you might as well include, not sure that it will add anything to the application though.

  14. Eye Exam

    Siam Optical near Phromphom BTS normally gets good reports. They're not a chain and they give full and proper examinations and at a reasonable price, I've used them for over ten years and have been completely satisfied. http://www.siamoptic.com/eng/ Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  15. I suspect they know their job, but they just didn't carry it out. Interestingly if you take the test when you're visiting the UK you're told the result there and then, so no stress for the candidate.
