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.

Contact our office on 038 422 131 or email [email protected]

  • Please note once the passport has been ordered we can if you require send the old passport back to you
  • We only require payment once your documents have been received and checked we will then send you our Thai bank details to deposit the fee

They also got my daughter, born in Thailand, an English passport.Use Key Visa to sort out your retirement visa problems and for getting passports renewed or being obtained for citizens of dual nationalityExceptionally efficient

    After attempting for 2 days to get a retirement visa myself with my Thai girlfriends help to no avail and being left totally frustrated I eventually gave up and contacted Darren. After consultation with Darren he calmly brought me back down to earth, reassuring me that the visa would be procured with little effort by myself. I left feeling very confident and reassured at what Darren had said. Yesterday I collected my passport with said visa for 15 months. Many thanks to Darren and team, Key Visa did a great job.

    Having had a difficult time renewing my UK passport I have to thank Key Visa service for their excellent help in difficult times in successfully getting my updated passport. Covid has played a big part in delays from the passport office along with increased demand and the Ukraine conflict but for those non UK residents this has caused many delays. Darren and his staff have been most helpful in ensuring this was completed as quickly as possible and I thoroughly recommend their service to anyone who are looking for this type of service. Many thanks for a five star service.

    In difficult times they got the job done. UK passport renewal in 2022. My only gripe is my emails and phone calls went unanswered during the process. I was rude to the lady in the office. Sorry about that. When we asked for my (old) passport to be sent back on short notice for the 90 day renewal they sent it back immediately. Thanks guys. Sorry for the trouble

    I have used Key Visa since moving to Thailand over 3 years ago. Darren quickly helped sort out my VISA, back then and arranged for me to open a Bank Account with Bangkok Bank which is invaluable and a must for any long term stay or ex pat. Also directed me to some one who helped me get Motorbike and Driving Licence. 3 years later and on this occasion I asked them to arrange a new 50 page UK passport along with renew VISA etc. Highly recommend Darren and his staff of front office ladies to get you sorted. Thanks

Email received day later job done✔️ Took the aggro of doing it myself as a first time visitor.Staff very helpful, I'm more than happy to give Darren and his staff a 5 star review

    Excellent service from Darren and Key Visa. My only complaint was with The Thai Post office who managed to lose an EMS envelope with my passport in it. The passport was wrongly delivered to another town 20 miles away because the postal workers could not read English which was very clearly printed on the envelope. It took a whole day for my wife and the postman to track down the missing passport. Darren was very patient with me and my rantings and very supportive. I would advise anyone that has to deal with The ThaI Postal system to write their address in Thai. In the sticks very few people understand English.

    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.
