Visa at Bangkok or Phuket - Thai Airways

I will be travelling from India by Thai Airways to Phuket via Bangkok. My flight reached Bangkok at 6.15 am and then I have a flight to Phuket at 8.30 am (both by Thai Airways)

My question is do I have to take Visa on Arrival in Bangkok or I can take VOA at Phuket? If at Bangkok, will I have enough time to take visa and can take my connecting flight? I may opt for fast track visa too, if required.

And my luggage, will I have to pick it up at Bangkok or will be sent to Phuket by airlies?

Thanks a lot for your replies.

Found out that I need to take Visa in Bangkok itself.

Will I have enough time to take visa and can take my connecting flight? I may opt for fast track visa too, if required.

Thanks for reply.

At 6:15 in the morning 135 minutes should be plenty of time. Try to get a seat at the front of the plane and take a fast walk to the VOA counter. Also try to download the VOA form to fill it out before hand and bring a passport foto with you.

Hey sanjeev_abhish,

Thanks for your reply, VOA have to do at Bangkok but about immigration? Should we have to complete the process of immigration at Bangkok or only VOA at there and rest at Phuket?
