Thailand visa for Pakistani passport is required when you want to visit Thailand. I have been visiting Thailand for the last six years and have obtained this visa many times. I am going to share with you complete information related to Thailand visa in Pakistan. I will also share the exact requirements for a Thailand visa in Pakistan.
How to Apply Thailand Visa in Pakistan?
If this is your first time to Thailand, then you have to go to the Thai embassy or consulate personally. If you have already visited Thailand once, then you can apply through a travel agency or visa dropbox. Once you obtain your first visa, for the second time, you can just drop your application to any travel agency or visa dropbox, or Gerry’s a company that handles Thai visa applications in Pakistan.
Thailand Visa Requirements for Pakistanis
Whether you are visiting Thailand for the first time or second time, you have to provide the below-mentioned documents.

Remember, residents of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Kashmir can submit their application at the Islamabad embassy. While residents of Sindh and Balochistan can submit their application at Karachi consulate.
Visa Fee & Processing Time for Thai Visa
Thailand offers many types of visas to citizens of Pakistan. They have a different fee structures for different visa types. I will list the fee below with the visa type for your understanding.
Tourist Visa Single Entry: Rs.5000 (Valid for 3 months – stay up to 60 days)
Tourist Visa Multiple Entry: Rs.25,000 (Valid for 6 months)
Transit Visa Single Entry: Rs.4000 (Valid for 3 months)
Transit Visa Double Entry: Rs.8000 (Valid for 3 months)
When you submit your application to the Thai consulate in Karachi, you’ll get a receipt from the visa officer after your case is approved. They will mention the date on that receipt for returning your passport. You should go to the consulate on that date and get your passport back. It takes five working days for the embassy to issue a visa.
Remember, submitting visa application timing is 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM, and returning passport timing is 11 AM to 12 PM. This timing and process is for Karachi consulate because I have always applied my visa at Karachi consulate. But for Islamabad, it should be similar and you can check on the official website.
Tips for Thailand Visa in Pakistan
If you are going for the first time to Thailand and you do not know how to prepare the documents, then I know a very good travel agency in Karachi who can prepare the documents for you for a small fee. Preparing documents means, they will prepare flight reservations, hotel booking, and your covering letter. You have to bring your bank statement and other official documents. You have to submit your application yourself if this is your first visa.
If this is your second time, then just drop your passport and necessary documents at this travel agency, and rest, they will do it for you. The person’s name is Abdullah, and the travel agency name is “World Express Travel”. You can call Abdullah on this number: 03132568140. Only call if you want to apply for a visa. I always submit my visa through this travel agency.
Special Note: You can provide flight reservations and temporary hotel bookings for the visa purpose. But remember to have confirmed return or onward flight ticket and confirmed hotel booking when you arrive in Thailand. You should also have a $500 USD minimum with you. That’s the entry requirements for Thailand. Visa is one thing and entry to a country is another thing.
