VISA ISSUES Citizens of some countries need to have visa prior to entry into Thailand. ADCC will assist them to apply for their visa with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However, release of the Thai Visa Letter and the Invitation Letter will be made only after receipt of tuition fee;
For citizens of countries that need to apply for Thai entry visa in another country, they will need to indicate which country they will go to for their visa application (example – Afghan nationals can get their visa in India or Pakistan);
Please note that the visa processing time takes 1 – 2 weeks here in Bangkok. We suggest that you send your application at least 2 months in advance to ensure on-time release of visa.
