From 23rd March 2015 British nationals needing to visit the Consular Section of the Embassy in Bangkok in person for notarial and documentary services must make an online appointment in advance. The online booking service will replace the current first-come first-served queuing system.
The new, easy to use online booking service will enable you to book an appointment in advance for notarial and documentary services where we need to see you in person, such as to swear an affirmation or for the certification of documents.
Information about the notarial and documentary services we provide can be found at our website. With a description of each service is a clear indication of whether you should apply in person or by post. From 23rd March 2015 you must make an appointment for each service that requires you personal attendance. Check carefully – you will be surprised at how few services require you to attend in person! If you have questions you can telephone us on +66 (0) 2 305 8333.
Information about the notarial and documentary services we provide can be found at our website . For the notarial and documentary services that require attendance in person we provide a same day service subject to the application being correctly completed. To avoid delays, please make an appointment and apply in good time and ensure you have all the necessary documentation and the appropriate fee for the service you require.
This change to how we provide our notarial and documentary services in Thailand is part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s 2013-2016 Consular Strategy, launched by the British Foreign Secretary in April 2013. The strategy commits us to providing a more professional, modern and streamlined service for British Nationals who require access to notarial and documentary services.
