         3.1  Applicants presenting their application at the Department of Consular Affairs can pick up their e-Passports 2 working days after the application date. If applying for postage service, it will take 5 working days for the passports to be express-mailed to them through EMS.
        3.2  If presenting their application at Temporary Passport Offices in Bangkok (Pinklao and Bangna), applicants can pick up their e-Passports 2 working days after the application date. If applying for postage service, it will take 5 working days for the e-Passports being express-mailed to them through EMS.     
        3.3  Applicants who submit their application at the Temporary Passport Office in provinces and request for postage service will receive their e-Passports within 5 working days.  

          In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has set up an automatic gate simulation at Department of Consular Affairs on Chaengwattana Road so that applicants can practice using their e-Passports on an automated machine. The Ministry, therefore, urges applicants to pick-up their e-Passports in person so that they can familiarize themselves with the e-Passport and the automatic immigration system. If necessary, applicants may designate a proxy to pick-up their e-Passports and /or request that their e-Passports be express-mailed to them.
