Application Fees for U.S.
Non-Immigrant Visas to
Increase on January 1, 2008
The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok and the U.S. Consulate in
Chiang Mai wish to inform our customers that effective January 1, 2008, the
application fee for U.S. non-immigrant visas will increase from $100.00
(3,600.00 baht) to $131.00 (4,454.00 baht). This worldwide increase will
allow the U.S. Department of State to recover the costs of security and
other enhancements to the non-immigrant visa application process. The
application fee can continue to be paid at any one of 246 designated Thai
Post locations nationwide.
After the Bangkok International Motor Show this
year I wrote “Ssanyong sshould sshoot its sstylists!” Their entire
range was so ugly, I felt the only use for one was as a hearse, and
I would still say, “I wouldn’t be seen dead in one!”
