An easier way to get a 10-year visitor visa
You’ve met someone. You’re excited about the possibilities of the relationship. And now you’re ready to introduce your Thai friend to your family, show them around your home country, or just have a fun vacation sightseeing. However, you may have discovered not all passports are created equal. While it’s easy for Americans to visit most countries, it’s far more difficult for someone from Thailand. Rejections are more common than you’d think, especially for Thais who wish to visit America.
Perhaps the most frustrating part is no one knows exactly why B-1/B-2 visa applications are accepted or rejected. Baan Thai can demystify the process. We’ve helped many Thais obtain US visitor visas, and we understand the criteria used by US Embassy Officers when they assess an application. If you’d like to improve your chances of success, leverage the knowledge of Baan Thai’s experienced immigration lawyers and counselors.
Application process overview
The most challenging part of the application process is overcoming the presumption that your Thai friend intends to violate the terms of the visitor visa by overstaying or working. While this presumption may seem unfair, the reason behind it is simple. Visa fraud is common. Obtaining a B-1/B-2 Tourist visa is a 4-stage process, and the most challenging steps are 2 and 3 below, where your Thai friend must overcome this presumption.

When you choose Baan Thai, we provide in-person support for your Thai friend from our Bangkok offices. Here, we’ll help your friend prepare for the two most critical steps in obtaining a B-1/B-2 Tourist visa: completing the application and preparing for the interview. We’ll guide them in collecting documentation that supports the claim that they will return to Thailand and not work in the US, and we’ll coach them on how best to respond in the interview.
Your friend will be instructed on details such as proper attire, body language, and the most likely interview questions that will be asked. And they will receive guidance on key information to include in the application – so that their case is presented in the best possible light. As we have bilingual lawyers, your friend will receive all support in Thai. An added benefit is that our offices are located a short 5-minute walk to the US Embassy, and we’ll ensure that your friend gets to the right place on time.

Unfortunately, no. The US Embassy doesn’t provide applicants a reason for denying a visa.
It depends on your Thai friend’s background. As mentioned above, your friend will need to overcome the presumption that he or she will overstay or work in the US. If your friend has a history of lawfully traveling overseas and returning, a career or property in Thailand, and other compelling reasons not to violate the visa terms, then your chances will improve. While this is not an easy visa to obtain, the right presentation of your Thai friend’s case can improve your likelihood of success.
