e-Visa photo team has been introduced to help our applicant with all kind of photo problems. Although we’ve included some guideline in e-Visa website but we are still more than happy to help our applicant with their photos. Before we introduced the photo team, we’ve encountered numerous different kind of photo cases that didn’t acceptable by e-Visa application such as applicant taking photo together with their pet, friends, or family. We also encountered some photo where male applicant didn’t wearing any shirt or some wearing extra such as cap or sun-glasses. These photos are not acceptable for e-Visa application.
I can’t think of any country whose govt that would entertain editing your digital photo for you, so I would say that this tourist visa system is probably the best in the world for customer service.
I’m sure that all of you knew that the visa application process takes up to three days as it was written on the e-Visa application site. However, many do not know that the three days actually meant three working days. Therefore, in order to avoid any misconception, we have decided to let everyone know about MOFA Team’s working hours.
|MOFA Team’s working hours|
|Monday – Friday ( 8am – 6pm )|
|Weekends are off days for MOFA team|
From the timetable located on the left, you will know when are the “working days” of the MOFA team and also, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you cannot apply on Saturdays or Sundays. You can but your application will be processed only on working days and that means from Mondays onwards. That is the reason why sometimes your application takes longer than three days. In actual fact, it takes just three working days as Saturday is not considered a working day for the MOFA Team.
However, if our applicants are in a rush, we are always glad to assist and expedite the e-Visa process as well as monitoring the application closely for the applicants.

Gilbert would like to share with you about the exchange scam in Poi Pet.
The thing about the exchange scam is that I was asked if I had US dollars when trying to order a taxi to Siem Riep at the Poi Pet border crossing. As I had only Thai Baht I was told that baht are no good and we were led to an exchange office and asked to change for Riel. I changed 5,000 Baht and received only 410,000 Riel which is obviously a very bad exchange rate as I found out in Siem Rieps branch of Siam bank later. I found out as well, that Thai Baht were excepted by everyone without a problem.
