UK holiday visa for thai wife


Recommended Posts

I have been married for 13 years to my thai lady. She visited the UK once back in 2005 on a 6 month visa. She never had a Desire to live there, she loves the village too much. I am thinking of taking her there for a month next year, can anyone tell me what visa she would need, and are they difficult to obtain, Thanks in advance for any help.

She needs a visit visa, which is valid for six months. From memory, it costs about 4000 baht.

They are not difficult to obtain, but the process is rather fiddly.

You can apply up to a maximum of three months ahead.

The main thing you are aiming to achieve in your application is to show that your wife has good reasons to return home and not overstay her visa. So things like photos of you outside your Thai house, with Thai relatives who are staying in Thailand, details of her job etc all help.




Start from the above website.

Colin is right. Very straightforward, especially if you both live in Thailand and can show that your "life" is here. You apply online but have to print out and hand the form in in person as biometrics have to be taken. A decision is usually made in about a week.

    • 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.
