Orchid of Siam UK Visas For Thais
UK Visa For Thai Nationals Specialists & Immigration Appeals Help & Advocacy, Bangkok & Epsom Offices.

We have been advised today that the Home Office are now taking about six months to process family and settlement applications after attendance at the application centre in Bangkok. This is due to the situation in Ukraine.
Our UK and Bangkok Offices will be closed from 24th December 2021 and re-open on 4th January 2022.
From 04.00 hours on Monday 30/08/2021 Thailand will be on the red list. Travellers from Thailand who are British or Irish Citizens or Thais with residence rights in the UK will be allowed to enter the UK but must do a 14 day hotel quarantine which must be booked prior to travel at a cost of 2285.

We are intending to attend the following festivals to give advice on family visas, leave to remain in the UK, settlement in the UK and British Citizenship applications.

The situation could change if the Coronavirus problem worsens or by Government order.
It was announced today that the Immigration Health Surcharge is to be increased from the current 400.00 a year to 624.00 a year. This change to come in during October 2020 the exact date has not been announced. This is a large increase of 56%.
Lek (Suthisa) will be attending the TWN conference at the Royal Thai Embassy Zurich from 24-26 May and back in the office on Tuesday 28th May after the Bank Holiday.
Within hours of Tony being interviewed twice by ITV Meridian for the news at 6 today the case in question has been immediately overturned by the Home Office and the visa issued. This was a case where the Home Office refused a settlement visa for a wife by applying the incorrect rule. Tony was asked for his comments on this case.
Angela has now received authorisation from the OISC to work as a qualified immigration Adviser.
As from 21st April 2017 all settlement visa applications will be processed in the UK and decisions will be made in approximately 60 working days. Please see details on our Settlement Visa page.
