Veterans Affairs

Veterans may apply for benefits on-line from overseas using their home computer. The Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) requires that you have one of four specific browsers installed on your computer and a minimum capability of 128-bit encryption. If you do not currently have the correct browser, you can download one for free from the Veterans Benefits website. The Veterans Benefits website will tell you if you need to download encryption software, and they will provide a free download link if this is the case

U.S. Citizen Services at the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok can provide limited assistance with Veterans Affairs issues, including:

  1. Certifying supporting documents for submission with benefits applications
  2. Assisting with Direct Deposit sign up
  3. Reporting missing benefit payments
  4. Assisting with finding physicians for the Request for Physical Examination (VA Form 21-2507)
  5. Reporting the death of a Veteran or beneficiary

The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) processes survivor claims, educational benefits, compensation and pension examinations, etc.
