Weekend passport service launched
The Foreign Ministry's passport division is to launch a weekend service to respond to an increased demand for passports, Foreign Minister Surapong Tohvichakchaikul said on Friday.
Starting this Saturday, Thais can apply for passports every Saturday and Sunday at the Consular Affairs division on Chaeng Wattana Road as well as at the two temporary passport offices in Bang Na and Pinklao.
The office hours of the weekend service run from 9am to 3pm. The special service was a result of the improved economic situation and the fact that more people are travelling abroad, Surapong said.
