Prior appointment for services needed at the Embassy of Finland in Bangkok

As a result of the reopening of Thailand for tourism, the demand for the Embassy of Finland in Bangkok’s consular services has also increased, and therefore prior appointments for consular, passport, and notarial services are needed, the Embassy states.

The Embassy asks that you book an appointment well in advance when in need of the Embassy’s consular, passport, or notarial/legalization services.

The Embassy’s customer service hours are from Monday to Thursday from 8:30 to 11:30. The easiest way to make an appointment is to contact the Embassy by email at ban.konsuli@formin.fi

Moreover, the Embassy notes that since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic, the Embassy has restricted the number of visitors in its customer service area.

  1. Aha?
    And before the COVID-hysteria there were no need to book times to the embassy, as obviously there were much less customers to these services then…?

    Sorry; but I do not believe this.

    The time before pandemic the embassy did NOT require appointment in advance, and the people requiring these services were MUCH higher number. Still it worked fine.
    It seems that COVID is a PERFECT excuse for many things now… 😉

    Also this booking system should be online reservation calendar, so that a customer can choose HIM/HERself the most suitable time.
    Now it is system that works on “take-it-or-leave-it”-basis: The embassy throws you a time, and you cannot affect in it. Take it or leave it!
    And more than often it feels that they are purposely choosing times that do NOT make any sense to the customer; just to make teasing to the people as much as possbile.
