Few essential items are required to be prepared beforehand:
1) A valid passport with a minimum of 6 months’ validity.
2)Two passport-size photographs on a pristine white background (recently captured, of course), and a filled application form, graciously provided at the counter.
3) Cover letter detailing my meticulously crafted itinerary.
4) Confirmed return ticket from Thailand.
5) Confirmed hotel bookings for each day.
6) A sum of 10,000 THB per person or 20,000 THB per family
The entire process was incredibly straightforward. Once I completed the form and paid the application fee, things moved swiftly. I was provided with a token number, which meant I only had to patiently wait for my turn. The anticipation built as I sat there for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, wondering when my token would be called. Finally, the moment arrived. I heard my token number being announced. I approached the counter, filled with a mix of nervousness and anticipation. The officer smiled and handed me my passport.The journey ahead might hold challenges and surprises, but with my stamped passport in hand, I knew that I had taken the first step towards the same.
