The Royal Gazette website on Wednesday published an announcement by the Foreign Affairs Ministry regarding the new fee rate for making a passport.
The announcement, signed by Foreign Affairs Minister Don Pramudwinai, stipulates the new fee rate will be effective from March 11.
The new rates include Bt500 for making a 3-year passport, Bt1,000 for a 5-year passport, Bt1,500 for a 10-year passport, and Bt1,000 for issuing an official passport. In case a passport is needed urgently (on the same day), applicants must pay an additional Bt2,000.
Other rates are Bt200 for issuing an emergency passport, Bt100 for passport endorsement, and Bt100 for a copy of passport holding history.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry will exercise its discretion on whether to wave the fee for urgent or emergency passports due to humanitarian or government-related reasons. (NNT)
