I would like to visit Thailand this year and was told it was best to apply for a visa first at the Thai embassy. Can you tell me how long does it take to obtain a Thailand visa?
The This depends on where you apply for your Thai visa as it depends on the embassy. Most times it is an overnight process. The Thai embassy in Laos issues visa overnight while the Thai embassy in Cambodia is 4 days. In the UK this is normally also an overnight process. Ask the embassy in your location on how long before the visa is issued.
