Embassy in Bangkok promises to visit Pattaya

The Danish Embassy in Bangkok

Since the Danish Consulate in Pattaya has been closed down, citizens from the area have been frustrated about the decision. The Danish Embassy in Bangkok now promises to visit Pattaya at least once a year to provide different services.

In a letter between Scandinavian Expat Club in Pattaya and the Danish Embassy in Bangkok, the Embassy writes:

“The Embassy aims to visit Pattaya at least once a year. In this context, citizens can get help with different things instead of going to Bangkok. As an extra service, we will bring along a mobile biometrics suitcase, which means we can provide normal passports as well”.

In the letter, the Danish Embassy in Bangkok emphasizes that the majority of things, citizens need help to by the authorities, can now be solved by writing an email, sending a fax or a normal letter to the Embassy.

“It is therefore not necessary to go to Bangkok, only if you need an emergency passport or a children’s passport or if you need a new passport with biometrics (photo and fingerprint). Our experience shows that not many Danes in Pattaya have had the need for an emergency passport or a children’s passport,” the Embassy writes.

    For lige at rettelse evt misforståelser: NeimID koden, formodentlig inkl selve nemID kortet, skal jeg hente i Bangkok.

    Ja men det er da fantastisk. Mindst én gang om året får det fantastiske personale i Bangkok, jeg mener det, lov til at servicere danske borgere i Pattaya, og Cambodja for den sags skyld.

    Er de ansvarlige hos UD i DK sikre på, at det ikke er alt alt for meget.

    Sidste år fik jeg, som bor i Cambodia et nyt pas, det gamle var udstemplet. Det kostede tid og penge først at rejse fra SHV til Bangkok, for at bestille, betale, og aflevere fingeraftryk.

    Tilbage til Cambodia, for derefter at hente det nye pas. Samme brug af tid og penge, og ambassadens åbningstider passer bestemt ikke medborgere, som skal med bus til den nærmeste grænseovergang, eksempelvis til Cambodja.

    Lige nu står jeg med en leveattest, som skal underskrives og stemples. Tidligere klarede repræsentationskontoret i Phnom Phen det. Det sted, som var kendt for god service, som ambassaden i Bangkok, er også lukket.

    Det næste bliver at jeg skal have koden til et nemID sendt ud. At jeg skal betale 185 kr for det er ok, men… Endnu en rejse med brug af tid og penge. Suk siger jeg bare.

    Er der nogen som helst samarbejde med ambassader eller konsulater i Cambodja?
