Explore the World with a United Kingdom Tourist Visa from Thailand

Posted by Paul Aslett on May 16th, 2015

Entry clearance is required for a Thai national to be able to travel to the United Kingdom. A UK tourist visa allows a Thai national to travel to the UK on holiday and is often awarded on a 6 months, multiple entry basis, although visas are available for a 6-month, 1-year, 2-year, and 5-year validity. However, it should be noted that a visa holder can only spend 6 months in any one year in the country. It is important to understand all the implications of the type of visa you hold to make sure you are getting the right kind for your stay. Using an agency to help you in the entire application process is practical if you want to increase your chances of landing a UK visa.

When choosing an agency, make sure that they are officially authorized by the UK Border Agency and that they offer complete assistance from collecting all requirements and forms to actually handing you your much anticipated visa. Always go to an agency that offers professional and personal consultancy services and has extensive knowledge and experience in immigration law. The best agencies can provide you with complete and efficient services, accurate advice, and guaranteed results. Many offer a free visa assessment to help you gauge your chances of attaining a UK visa.

Applicants for a UK tourist Visa from Thailand must establish that he or she is genuinely seeking entry to the country for no more than 6 months as a visitor and intends to leave the UK at the end of the visit. They must also show that they don't intend to take employment, whether paid or unpaid, or provide services or sell/produce goods within the country. Applicant must also show that he or she has no intent of studying at any publicly funded school and that he or she can be accommodated and maintained without resorting to public funds. He or she must also be able to prove that they can afford the costs of an onward journey.

To be eligible for a Thai UK tourist visa, one must be a Thai national or a foreigner holding residence status in the country.  For instance a foreigner with a Non-immigrant visa to Thailand along with a work permit.

Other requirements include proof of sufficient funds, proof of accommodation, evidence of strong ties to their country of origin or at least compelling reasons to come back, evidence of stable employment and flight ticket reservation.
