      • First name: Antonius
      • Middle Name: Maria Josef
      • Family Name: van de Bangkok
  • Don't fill in an online application form with a different name from that on the passport

    • Example: if you do not have middle name, just leave the middle name field blank. But if it is a REQUIRED field, please put "-" (dash).
  • Don't miss out space when there is space.
    • Example: if your family name is Ter Boos, you should fill in Ter Boos (with space between Ter and Boos) NOT Terboos.
