Application fees

Visa fees

To submit your visa application, you will have to pay a visa fee and a service fee. The visa fee is collected on behalf of the Embassy of France in Thailand and the service fee is collected for the processing of your visa application at the TLScontact center.

Visa and Service Fees in our Visa Application Center can be paid by Cash or Credit Card.

Attention: payment of the visa fee and service fee do not give any guarantee or right that a visa will be granted. The visa fee and service fee are both non-refundable and non-transferable if the visa application is denied by Consular staff or if the applicant decides to terminate his or her application.
