How to get a Thai visa in Singapore

Published by at 5:50 pm under Visas

Need a visa to go here?

If Thailand’s your next destination and a 30-day visa free entry won’t suffice, Singapore is a great place to get the paperwork done. The Royal Thai Embassy in Singapore is located at the heart of Orchard Road and can process all visa types.

For a 60-day tourist visa you will need the following:
* 1 completed visa form
* 1 passport-sized photo
* Tickets confirming your entry/exit from Thailand.

We’re not sure how finicky they are about that last one, but we were told over the phone it was a requirement. It takes two days to process a tourist visa and the regular fee is S$50. However, until March 31, 2011, all tourist visa fees are being waived.

Citizens of the following countries are required to submit multiple copies of the visa form and photographs: China, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Nigeria, and North Korea.

The documents needed to apply for a non-immigrant visa vary depending on the purpose of stay. The requirements for non-immigrant visas are listed on the Thai Embassy’s website. Fees range from S$100-250 for a one year visa.

The Thai Embassy is open Monday to Friday except public holidays. The opening hours to apply for a visa are from 09:15 – 11:30 only. There is usually a line outside the embassy’s gates, so it’s worthwhile to get there early. Visas can be collected from 14:00 – 16:30.

The Thai Embassy in Singapore has a very informative website and you can download the visa application forms. If you need to speak to someone they request you call (65) 6737 2475-6, ext. 104, 105 or 108 between the hours of 14:00 and 17:00.

    I just got a thai visa a couple of weeks ago.

    The process was reatively painless. Being a student in study abroad you need a photocopy of your Student pass. so if you are with any visa in singapore you will probably need to turn in a copy of the visa.

    If it is urgent they will process your visa in one day.

    I am a Nepali passport holder. I am trying to apply tourist visa to Thailand from singapore. I heared somewhere that Nepali people have to apply Thai visa from their resident country. Is that true??

    Just got a visa and they are REQUIRING tickets in and out of Thailand. I think I’m not bad at sweet talking and got nowhere, it was not optional in any situation. Train tickets are acceptable though, so just bought a quick return from Alor Setar into Hat Yai and back online from Malaysian Rail (about $10) and that was fine.

    Same question as Andrey…does 2 day processing include the day you submit the application? ie. drop off Tuesday morn, pick up Wednesday afternoon? Or does Tuesday drop off mean pick up Thursday afternoon?

    Trying to plan for when to book flights out of Singapore and into Thailand! Thanks.

    Since there hasn’t been an answer yet to my and Andrey’s question on how long it takes for processing… I would call it a Next Day service. We dropped off the application Tuesday morning (they keep your passports) and picked up Wednesday afternoon. We stayed an extra two days in Singapore as a cushion unecessarily.
