Flying from Bangkok to the UK around this time, apply for your visa early.



The UK Border Agency at the British Embassy in Bangkok usually experiences a large increase in the number of visa applications during the period leading up to Songkran.

The Border Force says: `This year the Easter holiday falls shortly before Songkran which is likely to further increase the demand for visas at this time.

`If it is your intention to travel to the UK around this time, please apply for your visa early.

`You can apply for a visa up to three months in advance of your date of travel. We will aim to process non-settlement visa applications within 15 working days and settlement visas within 12 weeks.

`The VFS visa application centre and the British Embassy will be closed on Friday 6 April and Monday 9 April for the Easter holiday and also Friday 13 April for the Songkran festival’.
