People were seeking visa application at Royal Thai Embassy in Yangon in April.

In an attempt to protect the reselling of reservation slots, the Royal Thai Embassy will stop the reservation cancelling system as of 7 May, and the appointment booking date will also be substituted, as the embassy said in an announcement on 4 May.
The announcement says the number of applicants for registration of visa reservation has been limited on the basis of each opening day, and a booking is set for one person only.
Currently, there has been inappropriate behaviour of some individuals trying to make reservations as much as possible by using different passport numbers and fake names in order to get a lot of booking slots, resulting in a high rate of “no show up” of registered applicants on the appointment date, the embassy said.
From 7 May 2024, the embassy stopped the cancellation system so that some individuals who have dishonest behaviour cannot make reservations and resell the reservation slots to other people. The reservation systems will also be changed from opening for making the reservation 30 days in advance to 14 days in advance. Therefore, the applicants are encouraged to thoughtfully consider the date of appointment before making a reservation, as the applicants cannot cancel the prior appointment and can make the reservation again after the previous date of appointment.
The applicants who make the reservation before 7 May 2024 can still cancel the booking with the cancellation code or cancellation link in the booking confirmation email. However, the applicants who make the reservation on 7 May 2024 will no longer receive the cancellation code or cancellation link, it said. — MT/ZS/ED
