Married to Thai, now nationalized. I retired and live part-time in US and Thailand. Can't get back to Thailand this year due to covid travel restrictions. So we decided to sponsor our niece for a student visa to better her career prospects.
She was accepted to university and went to visa interview. She was denied because, as near as we can understand, the fact that she has relative in the US means she is an intending immigrant. Any tips on overcoming this assumption? Is this worldwide or just the consulate people in Thailand? Thanks!
