Renewing Irish Passports in Thailand

 

We can do it for you without going to Bangkok

Applying for an Irish passport renewal or a Childs first passport is not for the faint hearted and can lead to many visits to the Irish Consulate in Bangkok if you get the application incorrect or the documents wrong, so why take the risk?

Why travel? You can come to Key Visa in Pattaya and we can help you obtain your new passport without traveling further than our office.

Key Visa Thailand can take the hassle away for a service fee of only 12,000 Thai baht which includes the passport fee and document checking, photocopies, taking the application to Bangkok, collecting the new passport when it is ready and keeping you informed of developments.

STEP 1

1. Never leave your passport until the last minute! Make sure you have a minimum of 9 months to one year validity left when you apply for a new passport.

2. Never wait until you have nearly run out of pages in your old passport! When you are half way through the pages order a new passport. Why put yourself under pressure? It is not worth the hassle.

STEP 2

3. You bring your old passport to the office and we complete with you the application form that we already have ready.

4. As part of our service, Key Visa will then make an appointment via e-mail with the Irish Consulate and submit the application and we are given a receipt and the old passport back as your original passport should never leave Thailand.

STEP 3

Checklist of Documents to bring to the office

5. You must make sure you bring your original passport ,do not worry we will do the colour copies needed by the Consulate.

6. You must supply two passport photographs, size 35mm wide by 45mm high you must not wear glasses or smile. The pictures must be taken with a white or light grey background and if the photographs are not correct then it will hold up the process.

STEP 4

7. Either you or Key Visa will receive a telephone call or an e-mail from the Irish Consulate when your passport has arrived. Key Visa staff will then collect the passport and bring it back to Pattaya with the old one. At present it is taking 6 weeks to arrive back in Thailand.

PIECE OF MIND FOR ONLY 12,000 Thai baht inclusive of the passport fee.

I recently renewed my UK Passport through Key Visa and found Darren and his staff to be extremely helpful and efficient. My Passport arrived as promised with zero drama and/or issues. And as such, I highly recommend this company and will definitely be using their services again.

I was dreading the prospect of going through the lengthy process of renewing my British passport so I decided to give Key Visa’s passport renewal service a try and I am so glad that I did.All I did was to provide two photographs and pay the all-inclusive fee of THB 12,000. This fee covers all the charges for Key Visa, British HMPO and two trips to Bangkok for Key Visa staff to submit the application and then collect the new passport. I was in and out of their offices within 10 minutes. All documentation was completed by Key Visa staff.After 20 days, I received an email from British HMPO that my passport was ready for collection.I extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to Key Visa for their amazingly prompt and efficient service and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their British passport renewal service to anyone who wants a stress-free passport renewal.

Was a little nervous sending my UK passport from Phuket to Pataya for renewal. I needn't of worried, the service provided was quick and efficient. The whole process took 6 weeks, which given Covid was very good. I whole heatedly recommend Key Visa for UK passport renewal as a hassle free option. Thank you.

I live in the Nongbualamphu area and was naturally a little wary of sending my passport and documents through the post to Pattaya but no problems whatsoever and my new UK passport arrived back to me within 3 weeks of the application arriving with Darren. A highly recommended service - takes all the stress out of what would be an expensive and time consuming process. Well worth every Bhat of the fee - thank you for an excellent service Darren and the team at Key Visa!

The fee was well worth not having to travel to Bangkok to the embassy and then having to go a second time when the new passport was ready. All done with EMS.

Excellent service from Darren McGarry and his colleagues...Due to my UK Passport renewal application being submitted from here in Hua Hin to Darren & his colleagues in Pattaya later than anticipated, my new passport arrived back in Darrens office in Pattaya on the eve of my flying back out to work the next day....Post from Pattaya to Hua Hin would take approx 3 more days....No problem....Darren organised courier service by taxi from Pattaya to Hua Hin that night to ensure I had passport ready for flying out next day....(well worth the additional cost of taxi to ensure delivery....)...Very good service.....

If you need to renew your british passport or if you need any other advice or visa service. This is the only place to do it with. Darren the guy who set up and owns key Visa, is Ultra proffessional, answered every single email and question for me, put my mind at ease and I had alot of weird quesrions. Very patiently answerd.The process was simple quick convenient, He even took care of the transfer of my Thai Non O marry visa into my new passport. The whole process cost me just B10,000 that included the cost of my new uk passport, the letter from uk emnbassy to transfer my Non O 1 year marry visa and his fee.Financially It's a no brainer. The travelling hotels food and train tickets aloan would cost more than that.I just downloaded the nessasary forms filled them in sent it all to Darren. He did the rest. Brilliant, proffesional 100% trustworthy service!.I give Darren and Key Visa. 10☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ highly recomended. PS sorry it took a while to send in my review Darren mate. Thanks again for everything.
