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. However, The Royal Thai Consulate in Karachi has a slightly different list of documents, and the embassy in Islamabad has a different set of requirements. And for your reference, I will add a link to their official website.

General Requirements for Thailand Visa:

  1. Passport valid for six months
  2. Old Passports (If any)
  3. Two Visa Applications Forms (Filled & Signed)
  4. Two Passport size photos
  5. Copy of your C.N.I.C on A4 size
  6. Copy of your passport – first four pages
  7. Bank statement of last 6 months (Rs.200,000 min.balance)
  8. Bank account maintenance certificate
  9. A letter from your employer stating your job & salary
  10. NTN certificate (if you are a business owner)
  11. Flight Reservation or Confirmed ticket
  12. Hotel Booking
  13. One Blank cross cheque (Required in Karachi)
  14. Affidavit on Stamp Paper (Required in Karachi)
  15. Family Registration Certificate (If going with family)
  16. Marriage Certificate (If going with wife)
  17. B-form (if kids are going with you)
  18. Tourist visa fee Rs.5000 (Single entry)

Note: You can download the visa form from the official website of the Thai consulate in Karachi and the embassy in Islamabad. Please go the links, scroll down in the PDF file and you will see the exact updated requirements consulate/embassy.

You can also obtain these visa forms at the consulate or embassy. But better is to take a printout at home and take the filled form with you to avoid the hassle.

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.

    Wali bhai thank you so much for sharing your experience with us.

    I am Waqar 23 from Lahore, Pakistan. I am also planing to visit Bangkok & Pattaya ‘Solo’ for almost 15 days and not sure either i will be visiting from Pakistan or Dubai as soon i am going to Dubai for my permanent Job. I am curious about the exact budget of 15 days and also the daily expenses as far as i have red on the internet from various sources most of the peoples said it is damn cheap even i happen to know a person in Lahore he had been doing business in Bangkok for almost 12 years he said only 1.5 lac PKR is enough for you including Visa/Ticket but i won’t be carrying 1.5 as i have made up my mind to carry more than 2.5 or 3 lac. So what would you suggest would it be enough to carry 2.5 or 3 lac or me should carry more than that i wanna have a wonderful time there as a ‘Solo’ traveler as a boy you know better, lol!

    Would be so grateful to you if you could please lay it down correctly and let me know how much everything costs there i.e Accommodation, Traveling (Transportation), Miscellaneous, Food (Is it easy to find Pakistani Halal food there?), …etc

    I appreciate your time reading my message and thank you in advance 🙂

    Kind Regards,
    Waqar

    Hello Sir I have a few queries
    1) As a first time, applying on tourist visa, i would have to visit the counsalate myself alongwith relevant documents or an agent can handle it?
    2) I am doing job in Khi while my Nic has Isb address so would I be allowed to apply through Khi?
    3) Can you confirm the following documents:
    Bank statement 6 months, Affedevit, A page from the cheque book, Company No objection letter, Personal Covering Letter, 2 filled Visa Forms, Return ticket, Hotel Booking, Passport(s), Nic copies. Is there anything i am missing? Thanks

    • Hi Hamza,
      The list of documents are just fine and OK to proceed. I only doubt the NIC address of Islamabad, as I don’t exactly know about that. you may ask the consulate by calling them on the number on their website. Just Google “Thai Consulate in Karachi” and you should find the number to call.

    Hi sir,
    I am going to Dubai, Sharja on 12th Jan for tourism purpose for 30 days. Now i want to visit Malaysia, Thailand and Maldive too with in 30 days. I don’t know the procedure for getting visa etc. Kindly guide me how to apply and save money from Sharja to Malaysia, Thailand and Maldive. Thanks.

    • Hi,
      For visa to Thailand and Malaysia, you need to apply in Pakistan, as you usually can’t apply for a visa in a third country while you are not a resident of that country. So if you are on a tourist visa in UAE then you can’t apply for Thailand/Malaysia visa there, you need to do it in Pakistan. And for Maldives you don’t need a visa, you can get one on arrival at the airport.

      • Nauman Malik Reply

        Thanks for the info sir. So, if i will go to Dubai (IA) than i can go to Maldives and i will get the visa on arrival on the the spot with out any extra requirements. Right?

        • Yes, you are right. you don’t need any advance requirement. just have hotel booking and return ticket from Maldives.

    • You just need to have a covering letter which clearly states what you do (business or employment) , the purpose of your stay in Thailand and passport number etc and requesting Thai Consulate/embassy for visa. you can search on Google for “Thai visa covering letter samples”, you’ll find many. you have to write that content on the letter head of your company.
