Requirements in Beijing for a Thai Tourist Visa, the same everywhere else?
20th August, 2010
I just went to the Thai Visa consular in Beijing the other day and they required these documents:
*proof of funds (10,000 rmb/1,500 usd)
*a company or school to vouch for me as their employee or student (not possible to get past if you aren't working or in college)
Wondering if it is this difficult anywhere else to apply for a 30 day tourist visa?
I'm an American, aware of the 15 days free. Not willing to travel by air as an alternative for the 30 days, the visa is so inexpensive compared to a plane ticket.
Has anyone tried applying in Kunming or any other locations in PR China? Or Laos?

I can't understand why you're applying for a 30 day tourist visa rather than the (free) 60 day one. I suppose Thai consulates must issue 30 day visas for some nationalities but 60 day tourist visas are the standard issue for US citizens.
If Thai consulates in China are problematic then the Thai embassy in Vientiane won't be... but I think all those weird demands for proof of residency and a school to vouch for you might be because you've asked for the wrong visa. They might be more strict with people from countries who are not entitled to a free 30 day entry stamp.

Actually I was unaware of that. Must have been because I didn't mention the 60 day visa. When i told her i was just a tourist without these documents, she shrugged and said, "then I don't know how you want me to help you". I really thought it was hopeless!
Knowing this is available, this is news to me. thank you!

You can use visa service on the internet to help you in this case. You only need pay service fee and they can help you solve difficulty. This way is better than you do it by yourself.

Fly in, get 30 days visa-exempt (depending on your nationality). Or go to the Thai consulate in Vientiane. They do single/double entry tourist visas without any hassles or proof of flight/funds/etc.
