Long delays - VFS Bangkok


Recommended Posts

My gf is sat in the Trendy office building waiting to submit her visit visa application, she has been there 4 hours now. If you are travelling from outside Bangkok and need to return home the same day you may be disappointed. What a shocking system!

We always book the early appointment.............in and out in under an hour in July.

Previous applications were about an hour, maybe the scanning process has slowed things down. Four hours is unacceptable.

Is their "wonderful" passport renewal service for us Brits similarly affected?

My passport renewal appointment was for 1pm, I turned up at 12:45 and was out of there by 12:55.

 

That was on 20 August and the passport is now sitting with VFS awaiting collection.

Do VFS operate physically separate offices for their visa and passport renewal operations (which could well explain the contrasting experiences)? For instance, I gather that the passport renewal office has relocated from the 28th to the 8th floor. But might the visa office still be located on the 28th floor?

Yes. They operate separately. The delays in the visa section are no doubt connected to the need to scan everything for the ECOs in India (since June 2018). The passport service remains the same, and is normally very efficient and quick.
