I have a British passport, and my wife has a Sri Lankan passport with a permanent residence in the UK. We are going to Sri Lanka, with a 7 hour stopover in Bangkok. We are thinking of going out of the airport for a few hours. Does my wife need a transit visa? If she needs it, can I get it in time?


Sri Lankan citizens can not leave the airport and enter Thailand without obtaining a visa in advance. You can apply for a Thai visa online. The website advises applying for this visa fifteen days in advance. You should expect to pay £60 for a single-entry visa.
