Tourist Visa for a Thai
A tourist visa is great way to bring a Thai loved one to the United States in order to have a holiday and meet other family members in the USA. The tourist visa is often issued with a validity of ten years, but the amount of time a Thai may spend in the United States for a given stay is usually limited to 90 days. The time frame for obtainment of a tourist visa in Thailand is significantly less than other types of US Visas.
Under US law, US Consular officers must presume that anyone seeking a non-immigrant visa intends to go to the US in order to remain. A Thai seeking a tourist visa must overcome this presumption by proving that the Thai will in fact return to Thailand and not remain in the United States. This underlying principle must be kept in mind by any Thai seeking a US tourist visa.
In order to attain a tourist visa, The Thai national must fill out the DS-156 tourist visa application form and collect the appropriate documents as instructed by the US Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. Included in the necessary documentation the Thai applicant must show a certain degree of financial stability and this is generally evidenced by proving the ownership of a house, car, or other assets. If the Thai visa seeker has a steady job with a decent salary this will also help in acquiring the US tourist visa from Thailand.
In a way, the tourist visa for a Thai fiancée is somewhat of a chimera for those seeking to bring their Thai Fiancee to the US. Tourist Visas were not mean for those brining loved ones to the USA to remain indefinitely. Instead, a Fiance visa or a Marriage Visa should be utilized for those taking Thai loved ones to the US. Using a tourist visa to bring a Thai loved one to the USA to get a green card and remain could be viewed as fraud on the part of the US citizen and the Thai. Integrity Legal does not recommend misusing any type of US visa.
After the application is put together, the Thai applicant will need to go to an interview at the US Embassy in Bangkok. Integrity Legal can assist the Thai applicant by preparing the applicant for the interview based upon our clients’ previous experience at the interview at the US Embassy in Bangkok. Contact Integrity Legal for a correct assessment about the type of visa that best fits your situation and how best to go about getting it.
