According with the weather forecast, Tiphoon Pabuk should hit the Thai Gulf today (4th January) or Saturday morning with heavy rain and strong winds, especially around the coast and the Southern islands. Phuket and nearby islands seem to be the regions at most risk so far, but the situation may change depending on the direction of the wind.
To the Portuguese in those areas of Thailand, we advise utmost care to avoid risk situations.
Remember that, whatever the situation may be, everyone should follow the instructions given by the Thai authorities. The Embassy of Portugal in Bangkok is monitoring this situation in cooperation with the Thai authorities and EU embassies in Thailand and, if necessary, will take the apropriate measures along with those entities.
The Embassy of Portugal has the honour to inform that after the 11th December 2018, Schengen Visa applications to visit Portugal in the Embassy’s area of jurisdiction must be addressed to the service provider TLScontact through the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
TLScontact services can be further consulted through https://pt.tlscontact.com/th/bkk/index.php and at its address 12/1, 12th floor, Sathorn City Tower, 175 South Sathorn Road, Khwaeng Thungmahamek, Khet Sathorn, Bangkok 10120.
The Embassy would also like to inform that the analysis and the decision of visa processes continue to be its exclusive competence. TLS’s role is to receive and check all the necessary documentation to the visa application process, thus optimizing the procedures and facilitating the processes.
Furthermore, the Embassy informs that National visa applications (temporary visas and residence visas) will continue to be received by this Embassy alone and following the current procedures.
