Persons with incomplete documents will not be permitted to enter the building and those found to have had their visa application rejected must not apply until next day, the consulate said in a notice issued earlier today (May 8) marked “ANNOUNCEMENT (visa matters esp. tourists) starting from Monday, 14 May”

Overstays incur a high risk of visa refusal and submission of fake documents will automatically incur a one-year ban on applying for a visa to enter the country, the notice warned.

Visa applications must be filled and signed and photos already attached to the form, and applicants must have the basic required documents:

- copy of passport (+ page with Malaysian immigration stamp)

- evidence of accommodation (hotel booking / house rental agreement)

- travel information (booking of air ticket leaving Thailand)

Financial statements provided must be only in Thai baht, Malaysian Ringgit, US dollars or euros, and only documents in English and/or Thai will be accepted, the notice confirmed.

Visa application and collection times will remain the same, the notice added.

A reason for the new limit on the number of visas issued each day was not given.

A reason for new limit on new number of visa issue daily was not given.
What about: Thailand want tourists with visa on arrival only. Long stayers not welcome, they spend relatively less money that short stayers.
A short stayer is better for image of Thailand.
A short stayer experience Thailand more as the land of smile than tourists who stay longer and learn/experience more.

Any idea how many they used to do?
If it was around 100 with correct paperwork, then this wouldn't be all that different.
