The Consular Outreach visit to Chiang Mai in 2019 will be scaled back from previous service intervals. The Australian Embassy Bangkok anticipate a reduction in the need to provide notarial services due to no longer witnessing income or bank balance statutory declarations for Thai Immigration purposes from 7 January 2019. See this page.
As such, outreach visits to Chiang Mai will be reduced in 2019 and we anticipate the next visit to be in June 2019. At least six weeks’ notice will be provided by the Embassy for their next visit date. – please monitor here for updates.
