Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok has a proper board mentioning direction for the booth for Visa on Arrival. This information is for first-time solo traveler. It becomes very uneasy to get down on unknown land. Just keep calm, follow the instructions & submit all the necessary documents.
I reached the airport at 4 in the morning & it took me around 20 mins to get a visa. The process was simple. Just fill the form, stand in a line & wait for your turn. The list of required document is also mentioned at the counter.So, cross check documents prior to submitting them.
Make sure you have a hard copy of everything as you need to put all the documents in a folder & submit it to the authority. After submitting the documents, authority will check your application & once everything is checked. They will give you a token number; once your token number comes, get your passport STAMPED.
