The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok is pleased to provide services in Pattaya.
Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017
Time: 10:00AM to NOON

Additionally, we are glad to announce that we will also come to Pattaya in June 2018. In light of the proximity of Pattaya to Bangkok, and competing demands on our limited resources, we have decided to decrease the frequency of visits. However, we do plan to inaugurate periodic afternoon hours at the ACS Section at the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok so that you can visit us and return to Pattaya on the same day if desired. We will advertise the dates with extended hours soon.
Information about all our upcoming outreach dates can be found at this link: https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/consular-outreach/.
All payments at U.S. Embassy Outreach Events must be made in the form of a BANK DRAFT.
