Totally unlikely she will be granted admittance into the US without a visa.

I don't know where you 'heard' that but I doubt if it is true. How would they be able to tell when she left? How would they know (especially with failed k-1) that she would leave - because she probably wouldn't.

Good luck

She cannot come without a visa.

You may have heard stories from Europe or similar places- some countries have an agreement with the USA, where they don't need a tourist visa to visit for up to 90 days; it's called the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), but Thailand is not part of it.

She definitely needs a visa. If not, she won't even be able to leave Suvarnnabhumi airport. The airline will check if she has a valid document to enter the US or not.

She wont be leaving Thailand without a visa. Two check points see to that.

Why do you think she wont be approved? There is no reason to think she wont if you have done the documentation correctly which will result in the interview. The interview is easy for her. However it is at that time that your ability to support her that becomes the important factor. You will submit the 134 form & should submit tax transcripts as well. If that is done there should be no problem.

This is no time to give up. Its tough to have to wait but like everything we have to work for its worth it in the end. Dont let this get to you,throwing away the future you planned.

For what its worth I was standing there in LAX as they detained a Thai female that had some visa entry problem. It didnt take 30 days, rather 30 minutes tell her she was leaving on the next plane to Thailand. She was locked in a glass walled room right there to wait for the plane.

I went back & read some of your early posts. It seems they want more info about support. I am suprised that they asked you to send in the 864 type forms which indicate they will accept a co sponsor in your case. This is very unusual for BKK & the only case I know of where they requested it. I think they did that because of your long term relationship in Thailand. What you may think is an officer trying not to issue the visa just may be the officer helping to make sure it can be done. Sometimes things arent what they appear to be.

From what I have learned here the problem you have is based around the officer questioning your ability to support her. That is because you were working in Thailand for an extended period of time & now have a new source of income. It looks like your income is enough but the officer must believe it may be too recent. You could consider writting a letter indicating you will marry very soon after her entry & then file the AOS which will allow you to use the 864 & a cosponsor. By that time you will have a longer work history for USCIS to review. Doing this shows them you are aware of the future process & will subject yourself to another review as soon as USCIS can schedual it.

If you get a cosponsor she will be approved or they wouldnt ask for one. Consider your self lucky that they asked.
