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.
