Uzbekistani travelers no longer need to go to an embassy or consulate, or queue for hours at the border, to obtain a visa for Thailand for short trips. The new Electronic Visa on Arrival (eVOA for Thailand) is quick and simple to apply for online and allow Uzbekistanis to spend up to 15 days in the country.
In the past, Uzbekistanis had to wait in long queues to process a visa on arrival at the border. The Thai eVisa on arrival for citizens of Uzbekistan means the visa application is completed and processed by the Thai authorities in advance, saving travelers time and effort.
The Online Thailand eVOA for Citizens of Uzbekistan
To promote the new visa for Thailand, the government is waiving the 2,000 baht fee (approximately 61USD) for a limited period only. Travelers who apply after April 30, 2019, will have to pay the full amount.
The online form for the Thailand eVOA for Uzbekistanis only takes a few minutes to fill out. On arrival, eVOA holders join a special fast-track queue to receive their visa and gain entry into Thailand.
For stays of longer than 15 days, citizens of Uzbekistan need to go to an embassy or consulate to apply for a visa. There are numerous different Thai visa types for different purposes and lengths of stay.
Applying for the Thai eVisa on Arrival for Uzbekistanis?
Travelers can complete the Thailand eVisa on Arrival application between 24 hours and 30 days before their trip. The form is straightforward and just involves entering information such as your full name, date of birth, passport details, and travel plans.
Applicants should carefully answer and revise all the information they provide as even very small errors, such as spelling mistakes, can lead to delays in the application process. The vast majority of visa applications are quickly approved though some are occasionally rejected.
To successfully apply, applicants must meet all the Thai eVOA requirements for citizens of Uzbekistan and pay a fee using a credit or debit card. When approved, the Thai eVOA is sent to the email address provided on the application form.
