Thanks apmk!

I suppose all life is lottery when it comes down to it - where you are born,
who your parents are, which bar you went to and met the love of your life ....

But Government should not be but it depends I imagine which CO you get

I'll try the Visitor one as she has already been here when we met.
Certainly JandE used this path with success according to earlier posts they made
When I introduced myself under Aussie in love with a Thai woman

I hope they will look at the two applications as good reason to approve
and hope it comes up heads when the coin is tossed!!

Supplementary questions for the visitor visa

Now that I have submitted the 300 PMV I am required to upload documents as expected. In addition they require biometrics - digital photo and fingerprints. I will be in Thailand for a week from the 20th to ensure we complete this part

I have completed the initial forms for the 600 Visitor - most same as 300 - and now it asks for supplementary documents to be uploaded before payment unlike the 600

I have spoken to the family and they did the biometrics last year for the 600 Family Visa so I expect the same will be required again for this 600 Application.

Does anyone know if I have two active Visa submissions (300 & 600) will the biometrics be required twice or can the one request be applied to both?
If so who do I ask - the Embassy in Thailand? or will the DHA system note the simultaneous applications and use?

I don't know - after our 300 we did medicals and police, then a bit later applied for the 600.

They gave us a much better Visitor Visa than we asked for (12 month from date of grant multi entry if we want to) they did not ask for medicals or police docs.

Thanks ampk

Which country was the applicant?

Did you have to do a biometric - digital photograph and fingerprints for each one? or just one?

Was partner and 2 kids from Ukraine - don't recall exactly what they had to supply, but don't think finger prints. This I do recall being the only simple and cheap thing of the entire process for us.

Biometrics are required for each instance of a visa application, regardless of any time frame. So if you do a PMV300, biometrics required and if you were to do a VV600 even a day after...back for biometrics again

Thanks Mattb

As I suspected. If there are two active visa requests they should be able to be done together? That is not two separate visits - just two transactions

Of course that's 2 x 851Baht to VFS Global in the Trendy Building
But I should be thankful. It's only about $70 total

Yes two seperate forms/payments/biometricss per each application, active or previously complete under other visas. You may be able to get two appointments close together or back to back. Maybe phone them see if you can do it all under the one time allocation and just pay/provide them twice. I used the online booking system and it just gave me available slots.

We just received an unexpected Christmas present when we realised that my darling was probably pregnant!
We see the Doctor next week to confirm but the tester was positive

The burning question now is do I include this on the PMV 300 application which I can submit in the next days?
Can I ignore this at this stage as we don't have anything official
Will it be a plus or a minus at this stage for her fiance visa application?

Reading this post 6 months on is very informative
I have completed everything required for the PMV 300 but not finished with the Evidence of relationship before final submission for decision

It has been so much harder than expected. I applied for and was granted the visitor Visa in Thailand in 3 days while I was still visiting to assist with everything.
I was so excited by this I rushed to buy her a ticket only to arrive back to an email asking for medicals and police checks for her and her son for the PMV 300.

If my fiancee had stayed in Thailand for one more week these could have been done in days instead of a couple of months. It would have cost much less too.

I then applied for a new visitor visa 600 in Australia in October. This took the more normal two weeks and she was granted 6 months more until April 2019.
