Thailand visa from Kota Bharu

Here are a few pointers about visiting the Thai Consulate in Kota Bharu (“KB”), North East peninsular Malaysia.

The consulate is located a few hundred meters East of downtown on Jalan Pengkalan Chepa. It is easliy walkable from downtown.

I believe that there is also a bus (Number 4) from the Jalan Bandar bus station, but it is hardly worth the wait, when it is such a short walk.

Walk past the long white wall on the right and go into the visa office, just after (East of) the wall.

Kota Bharu (KB) is not the most easy-going of Thai Consulates.  You should have no problem if you are just looking for your first/second tourist visa or if you haven’t had one for a year or two, but anybody looking for back-to-back, repeated tourist visas shouldn’t bother trying here.

Apply in the morning, collect next (working) day afternoon.

They work to the Muslim weekend:
Open: Sun-Thurs  0900-1200; 1400-1530
Closed: Friday, Saturday
