In addition to many steps The fee for each visa application seems to be overcharge. One time filing is not less than 2,000 baht, and now most embassies use the filing system through the VFS filing center. We have to be implicitly paying the VFS service fee. In total, a European visa filing costs no less than 3,000. Which baht is still a matter of travel expenses, submission of documents, expenses that need to take leave to work on a weekday visa, translation fees, photography and photocopying / receiving faxes at the location (In the case of incomplete documents) which is the most expensive that has been found up to 25 baht per sheet. Most will fit exactly on the day of travel.
