Phuket service launched for UK visas | Thaiger

PHUKET: Freight forwarding and courier company Phuket Universal Services Co Ltd (Pusco), near the Mercedes-Benz showroom on Thepkrasattri Rd, is now accepting applications for visas to enter Britain.

The new service follows the April 21 announcement by the British Embassy in Bangkok that it has entered into a partnership with VFS (Thailand) Ltd in a bid to improve the its visa-issuing service. VFS will from now on receive and return applications for all types of UK visa.

VFS has appointed Pusco as its agent in Phuket, and staff at Pusco will check that each visa application includes all the required documents before forwarding it to the VFS Visa Application Center in Bangkok, which in turn will pass applications to the embassy.

The service fee for a visa application made in Phuket is 1,075 baht, which includes courier charges of 620 baht, but not the embassy’s fee for the visa itself, which varies depending on the type of visa applied for.

Payment in full must be made at the time of application, in the form of a demand draft made payable to “VFS Thailand Ltd”.

Applicants may, if they wish, submit visa applications by hand to the Visa Application Centre in Bangkok or send them by mail or courier service to: The UK Visa Application Centre, 2nd Floor, Regent House, 183 Rajdamri Rd, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330. Payment in full must accompany each application.

If it is decided that an applicant must go for an interview with embassy staff, he or she will still need to travel to Bangkok.

Applicants can expect a reply from the British embassy within two weeks of submitting their paperwork.

For more information contact Pusco at 24/158 Moo 2, Thepkrasattri Rd, Koh Kaew, Muang, Phuket, Tel.076-238824-6, or call K. Pornthip at Tel: 07-373843 or K. Kanjana at Tel: 09-8714186.
