Well it has been over a year since my last visit to Thailand as the pandemic has closed the borders for foreigners. For me to get into Thailand I would have to do the following even though I have been vaccinated.
Effective from 27 September 2021, the Royal Thai Embassy in Washington D.C. will start implementing new e-Visa service, “Stickerless e-Visa”. Please note that it is no longer required for applicant to submit his/her passport and original supporting documents via mail to the Royal Thai Embassy.
After the e-Visa application has been approved, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to applicants. It is kindly requested to print a copy of the confirmation e-mail to present to airline and Thai Immigration officials to carry out checks when traveling to Thailand.
