Anyone gone to pick up their visa and been told it wasn't ready?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got a very upset call yesterday. Pond was scheduled to pick up her visa wednesday (her birthday) after a successful interview monday. She showed up at noon and was called into a room to wait with all the others there to pick up their visa. one by one they were called until she was left and she finally asked if hers was there and showed her card.

They just unapologetically told her it wasn't ready to come back tomorrow and if not tomorrow then for sure friday. To me this sounds like a typical government office to me but she was absolutely crushed.

is there ANY reason for us to worry?

Thanks

Stone,

Interesting to know for sure that the consulate was open on Wednesday. I wouldn't be surprised if it was understaffed due to some (or many) of the Thai staffers who do the 'grunt work' staying home due to the unfolding events.

Yodrak,

We really weren't sure if they would be open but I checked the website and she called. She wasn't happy about all the armed soldiers running around but if anything was going to get her out of the house this was it.

I'll keep everyone updated. She did fail to mention that there was something said about her name change. She was very sick when she was younger and they did a name change ceremony and had her name changed. We had all the paperwork for it so we didn't think it was going to be a big deal. Maybe this was holding them up.

I'll report back tomorrow night.
