US Embassy to stage “outreach visit’ to Phuket

Published

 on 

PHUKET: The Consular Section of the American Embassy in Bangkok will hold an “Outreach Visit” at Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort in Karon (map here) on March 15.

Consular staff will be available from 8am to midday to provide services on:

• Passport renewal applications (US$110 or 3,520 baht for adult passports, US$105 or 3,360 baht for a child’s passport).

• Notarial Services and Certified Copies (US$50 or 1,600 baht), includes income affidavits for retirees in Thailand.

• Extra visa pages (US$82 or 2,624 baht). Note: during outreach visits, consular staff can accept applications, but the passports will be taken to the US Embassy in Bangkok for processing the next working day. Staff will bring prepaid Thailand Post envelopes to the outreach visit that can be bought at cost (75 baht) if the passport is to be returned to the applicant by mail. Alternatively, applicants can pick up the passport in person at the Embassy. A friend can collect the passport at the Embassy if the applicant provides written authorization.

• Social security, VA, or other federal benefits questions: we will try to provide forms and answers.

Consular staff urge visitors to bring exact change for payment of any services required. See the US Embassy website (click here) for information and requirements for each service.

Consular Reports of Birth cannot be processed during consular outreach trips.

Appointments are not necessary for consular services during outreach visits. For more information, email acsbkk@state.gov or call the American Citizen Services Unit at 02-205-4049. Also, check @ACSBKK on Twitter for updates.
