Thailand advises Indians to obtain visa previous to travelling to keep away from lengthy queues

The Royal Thai Embassy in India suggested Indians to acquire visas from the embassy or consulate before travelling to keep away from lengthy queues at Bangkok‘s Suvarnabhumi Airport upon arrival in Thailand.
International tourists have been flooding into Thailand since High Season began last month. For the first time in years, 50,000 international vacationers handed through immigration at Suvarnabhumi Airport in at some point final month. The primary tourists had been Indians, with 5,200 arriving that day.
Despite immigration officers staffing all the available booths and reportedly spending not than 45 seconds checking the paperwork of each arrival, tourists are still queuing up for hours to get by way of the border into Thailand.
To lure in vacationers, Thailand is granting longer stays to tourists this High Season. So while New are eligible to realize a visa on arrival that grants them up to 30 days in the kingdom, their vacation would possibly get off to a bitter begin in the occasion that they end up ready hours for his or her visa.
The embassy advises acquiring a visa at their local Thai embassy or consulate before travelling to make the process smoother and sooner. Tourist Visa (TV) grants a stay of as much as 60 days.
Thailand’s ambassador to India Pattarat Hongtong said…
“I assume this is fairly pure for any airport, not only in Thailand. When we open the borders, nobody can anticipate the precise variety of incoming visitors or tourists. So that’s why for Indians we advise them to get a visa from the Embassy or Consulate General before travelling to Thailand which may be useful towards issues.
“We have tried to enhance by increasing the number of folks that work at the airport to facilitate the tourists.”
Visa on arrival could presumably be the one purpose behind the long queues at Suvarnabhumi Airport, added Pattarat..
