TROUBLE PAYING VISA APPLICATION FEE

Hello All,

My fiancee is having a terrible time trying to find a post office that knows anything about sending the visa application fee. She is not in Bangkok.

She sent Packet 3 to the embassy without the application fee receipt. My thought is that we ask a family in Bangkok to pay the fee and send the receipt to the embassy for us. This will be done prior to the interview. Anyone see any problem with this?

Any other way for me in the US to pay for this online?

Thanks!

The post office doesnt send the fee. It is paid there to get a reciept. Sending the reciept to the embassy could turm into a nightmare.

Easy way to get this done is to tell your fiancee to find the high rise building directly across the street from the embassy the day before or the morning of her interview. She can walk to the left side of that building all the way to the back of the parking lot to find a soi ( alley way ). Walk left again a short distance to the small post office to pay the fee. Take the reciept back to the embassy.

She could check again at her P O but make sure she asks the right question as to paying only.

Only other thought I have is if you have not done the medical yet you can try and do it when you do the medical. Good luck

Thanks Ning and Andy for responding.

My fiancee got her medical and police certificate and sent Packet 3 to the embassy already.

I was under the impression from Packet 3 instruction that the visa fee receipt needed to be sent with Packet 3.

So it is okay to bring the receipt to the interview instead of mailing it ahead of time???

Thanks!

If she does send the original, be sure she makes a copy that she can bring to the interview.

A list of participating Post Offices can be found here:

Generally they are only in the provincial capital.

In which province does she reside?
