The following consular services will be available:

  • Passport renewal applications

PAYMENT METHOD

Please be advised the U.S. embassy will no longer accept cash (U.S. Dollars and Thai Baht) at Outreach Events for American Citizen Services. This is a worldwide policy, and no exceptions can be considered, please see the No Cash Announcement.

All payments at U.S. Embassy Outreach Events must be made in the form of a BANK DRAFT.

All Bank Drafts must be:

  • Purchased from Bangkok Bank, Kasikorn Bank, or Siam Commercial Bank (SCB).
    • You do not need an account at the bank to purchase a bank draft.
    • Kasikorn Bank calls a “bank draft” a “Bill of Exchange.”
  • Purchased in advance.
  • Made out to “American Embassy Bangkok”
  • In the exact amount of Thai Baht (THB) for your total service.
  • At the official embassy exchange rate at the time of the outreach.
    • Fees and exchange rates will be included in individual outreach announcements and posted on our website.
  • Submitted at the time of service.
  • You can show this to the bank:
    ลูกค้าท่านนี้ต้องการซื้อแบงค์ดร๊าฟ (สกุลเงินบาทเท่านั้น)
    ตามจำนวนเงินที่ระบุด้านหลังสั่งจ่ายถึง
    “American Embassy Bangkok”
    รบกวนช่วยอำนวยความสะดวกให้ด้วยค่ะ

Exact fees and exchange rates will be included in individual outreach announcements and posted on our website ten to fourteen days prior to the event.

Delivery Service: Thai Post can mail back passports for applicants. If you require this service, you must purchase and submit a separate 100 THB bank draft. Do not include the cost of the envelope in your total bank draft for services.

Please note:

  • Cashiers’ checks, personal checks, cash, credit or any other form of payment will not be accepted.
  • Bank Draft requirement only applies to Consular Outreach Events. Services rendered during normal business hours at the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok or the Consulate in Chiang Mai will continue to accept payments made by credit card or cash (THB or USD) exclusively.
