I’m applying for a visa to Thailand. The visa requires:

  • Purposed address in Thailand
  • Name and Address of Local Guarantor
  • Tel./Fax.
  • Name and Address of Guarantor in Thailand

Do I 100% need a real contact in Thailand? Or can I put down a hotel name or some random organization? I'm traveling with a group and we haven't reserved a house or hotel just yet, but I'm the only one who needs a visa. Any chance my visa will get denied if they think I'm not being truthful?


Last time I applied for a Thai visa I left the Thailand address section empty and during the submission I was advised to fill in the details of hotel where I will be staying.

I don’t know if something has changed and it now possibly says Guaranter but if it’s just the Thai contact they are looking for it’s fine to put the hotel details.

Do not put any fake names there.

This is obviously anecdotal so it may be different for someone else.

  • Can i ask you how long it took for your Visa process? I’ve read about 5 business day. – J K Jan 11 '18 at 22:07
  • I think it took 7 business days last time – Hanky Panky Jan 15 '18 at 8:11
