Usual questions about bringing my girlfriend from Thailand to visit

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. We're looking at brining my girlfriend from Thailand to visit. She's nearly 30 years old, has a decent job and an apartment. She also has all her family in Thailand although not too close to her. She's left the country twice and always returned. She just wants to come spend a couple weeks and do some sight seeing and then go back. Not a long trip.

I've read that I should not get involved and that is fine. How slim are her chances? Any other big no-no's? I just don't want to jeopardize the chance of getting a K-1 Visa later down the road.

Her chances also depend on her income, assets, etc.

As for your K-1 visa worry, applying for a tourist visa will not impact the K-1 whatsoever. If she were to get denied, it wouldn't cause problems with a K-1 application later.

As long as she has ties to her country she should be ok. Stay out of it, best if you're not mentioned.

Denial or approval has no bearing on the K1 down the road.

Why would you send her money when she has a decent job and apartment?

To make her savings account look better.

You do not think that the Consulate are well aware that happens, what do you think they would think if they saw a sudden influx. Better for her to save her own money.

I am aware, as is the OP (at least by the sound of his post). I was just answering your question.

She does have a decent job and makes enough for her cost of living but I live in the most expensive city in the United States so I don't know how much she would be expected to have in a bank account.

Before you do anything now and going forward, stop and remind yourself, a few times if necessary, that this isn't the consulate/embassies first rodeo.

I'm not sure why where you live i the USA has any bearing on her tourist visa application.

Thank god I'm not doing anything!
