The Royal Thai Embassy in Athens will launch an online stickerless e-Visa platform which will replace the current in-person and by-post visa application procedures. Effective from 1 November 2022, 09.00 hrs. (UTC+7) or local time in Athens at 04.00 hrs. in the morning of 1 November 2022, any foreign national, with residence in Greece, Malta and Serbia, who wishes to apply for a Thai visa must apply, submit his/her application and supporting documents and pay the application fee online through the new online e-Visa platform at https://www.thaievisa.go.th/. Please note that it is no longer required for applicants to submit their passports and original supporting documents at the Royal Thai Embassy in Athens.

After the e-Visa application has been approved, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to applicants. Applicants are kindly requested to print a copy of the confirmation e-mail in order to present to the airline and Thai immigration officials who carry out checks when travelling to Thailand.

The Embassy will accept in-person and by-post visa applications until 27 October 2022. Any applications received after the 27 October 2022 will be returned to the applicants in order for them to re-apply through the new stickerless e-Visa application platform.

For more information, please visit the e-Visa website at https://www.thaievisa.go.th/. For instructions on how to apply for e-Visa, please view the Video User Manuals at https://thaievisa.go.th/video-user-manuals.
