The notice was posted on the Royal Thai Consulate’s Facebook page early this afternoon. (See here).

“The consulate is closing for a few days just so staff can move to our new building opposite the current main building,” an official who declined to be named told The Phuket News this afternoon.

“The consulate will not be closed for long, only four to five days,” she said.

“However, it is strongly recommended that any persons needing a visa urgently submit their applications as soon as possible. Please come today, Thursday and Friday as we are still available to provide visa services,” the official added.

The Royal Thai Consulate in Penang has for decades been a popular choice for foreigners in Phuket seeking visas to legitimately extend their stay in Thailand.

To announce on Wednesday, that you should quickly come on Thursday or Friday, sounds funny 
Guess, after 5 days closure all who need it can obtain their visa arrangements when the new consulate building opens
Reading it now is a bit late to make travel arrangement for visa purpose Penang before the weekend, right?
It should have been announced 1 week ago for not alarming
But what is time?
