Thai Tourist Visa/One way ticket problem.
7th February, 2011
I need to apply for a Tourist visa before my departure from the UK. However the problem now is that I have booked a one-way air ticket (for date purposes) and the visa requirements state that I need evidence of onward travel from Thailand (air ticket paid in full).
Do you know of a way around this.Does the 'evidence' HAVE to be an air ticket or will some other kind of proof of onward travel suffice.I don't want to travel anywhere else from Thailand by air during my stay in s.e. Asian countries (too expensive fo my budget).Or perhaps on the visa application form an explanation of my predicament and details of my travel plans will help.
Seems my options are very limited-unless you know otherwise.??

Which UK consulate are applying from? Each one has its own "rules" and according to numerous posts the consulate in Hull even issues double and triple entry tourist visas (by post or in person) without proof of onward travel. However for those consulates which do require that proof it must be air travel not bus/train/boat/etc. Check with http://www.thaiconsul-uk.com/downloads-and-visas.aspx

book an air asia cheapy to KL, singapore or laos. If your budget is too small for that can't see how you can afford to stay a couple of months in Thailand.

I've applied for Thai visas many times & never provided an onward airticket. If fact, I've applied without having any air ticket to Thailand. I've applied in person at London and by post to Birmingham. Unless things have changed at lot since last year I'm unaware of any problem. Try Birmingham.

What Captain Bob says is so true about each consulate having its own set of rules. A good example is the Thai consulate in Toronto. Despite the fact that Tourist visas are to be free until March, the good folks there accept that there is no cost for the visa, but insist on a U$35 "processing fee."
