Visa help,


ptr91

Recommended Posts

Hello mates, 

Im back in sweden now and im trying to make a visa for my tgf to come and visit me for a  few weeks, and just starting to make the visa,

 

so called our embassy asked what i needed, all i needed was an invitation they said, with copys of my passport proof that shows im the person i say i am, my yearly salary taxes blabla 
 

 

"copy of your ID-card, passport or equivalent, which proves your identity,"

 

"certificate of civic registration marked ( invitation) obtainable from the swedish tax agency and not older than 3 months."

"dicynebts which show the details of your employment or equivalent and annual income ( if you are paying for the applicant's journey and/or upkkeep while visiting sweden)" and i am.

Anyways, i got all my papers set ready to send them away, but i was really just wondering how much it would cost, She went down to patts today to some visa office, and was quoted 45000bt for making a visa, what is it that cost 45000 thousand bath to be exact? i dont know maybe thats what it costs but what am i really paying for? can she not just go to bangkok thai embassy or whatever and do it herself like i have here in sweden? or do she need someone to make it for her? 
im not a CC it just feels unnecessary to pay that amount of money if there is a possiblity she can just do it herself with my invitation papers,

 

or is it a pain in the ass to deal with all that, should i just pay the 45000 and let them do whatever they need to do, what would u do? god knows if thats just a startup cost lol as it's patts after all

 

Like i said before i have no idea how things work down in thailand costs or nothing, thats why i ask, any help is much appreciated thanks

45.000 baht is waaaaaay to much.The normal price they charge for a regular visitor visa is between 4-6.000 baht.There is an agency in Pattaya called VIP Reiser (Scandinavian),but they charge around 15.000 baht .

 

Im using a girl called Dariga in Bkk and Im very pleased with the work she have done for my GF so far.

Her number is +66818250844.She charges 5.000-6.000 for the assistance she provides..............recomended.

To get my TGF into the UK for the first time, was complicated, they wanted to now everything about us,

how long had we been together, passport obviously showed when I was in Thailand, how we met, with lots of pictures of us together,

details of money sent to TGF, phone records, pictures of talking on skype ( I used screen captures, they showed us both and had UK & Thailand clocks and a calender on screen)

they wanted emails but I had to explain we didn't communicate though email,

lots of various receipts, eating, shopping, gifts etc.

plus all the things you supplied, 

the dates she would be travelling, to and from,

She had to have a medical, 

what her job is in Thailand, and how would she get time off, (apparently no job is not good, they want to see a settled person in Thailand, more chance they will return)

she had to show her bank account, etc

 

Thats for the UK Sweden maybe different

 

paying someone the first time can help, I think I paid 20,000 baht, 

 

after the first time, its allot easier, good luck  :GoldenSmile1:

 

Oh yeah details and pictures of my house showing there was space for her there etc.

I had my TGF visit me from 2nd February to the 2nd of May. That is the 90 days maximum for shorttime visit in the Schengen area.

 

I dont think there is a big difference between Denmark and Sweden. Here is a link to a checklist for you. I did it myself and it was pretty straight forward. There is no need to pay some "Agency" to do it for you: http://thailand.um.dk/en/~/media/Thailand/Documents/Visum/checklist%20TH%20friends%20boyfriend%20girlfriend.pdf

 

Here is a link to the swedish invitation form. http://www.migrationsverket.se/download/18.5e83388f141c129ba631285c/1381926423269/Inbjudan_241011_eng.pdf 

 

Once you have checked all the things on the checklist and filled in the invitation, your TGF need to take it to the VFS in Bangkok and you will be given an answer within a month. If there are problems with the application they will contact you and ask you for more information.

 

Good luck with it.

Thanks for the replys. thats what i have been doing. The papers and everything myself saved me alot of cash and didnt take me long to get all The papers i needed. worth it to do it yourself imo. atm im up at 8000bt. another 4000 for taxis paper translators in bkk maybe. so a total of 12000bt. And that includes everything! instead of the 30-50000bt i was quoted and God knows if they would ask for more later or not. so a tip to anyone trying to make a visa. Do it yourself didnt take many hours to get my papers ready.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
