wouldn't my non-immigrant visa application be approved?
According to the Immigration and Nationality Act
an applicant must prove that they qualify for a
visa to enter the United States. The United States
assumes, until convinced otherwise, that all persons
are intending to immigrate to the US. It is therefore
the applicant's responsibility to prove that they
are intending to enter the US for a specific purpose
for a specified, limited time and that they have
residence and other ties to their home country,
Thailand, and that they intend to return to their
home country. Your application may be denied if
you fail to provide enough information to support
is Section 214(b)?
Section 214(b) is part of the Immigration and Nationality
Act that requires consular offices to assume that
an applicant for a visa is presumed to be an immigrant
until he proves satisfactorily that he is not. There
are a variety of reasons that an application can
be refused under Section 214(b), the majority of
which have to do with a lack of evidence that an
applicant has reason to return to Thailand.
if my application is denied?
If your application for a visa is denied you may
apply again if there is new evidence that overrides
the reasons for refusal. If you cannot provide new
evidence, the consular offices are not required
to re-examine your application.
kind of evidence can support my position?
providing information proving your intent to return
to your home country you can increase your likelihood
of approval. If you are employed, a letter from
your employer explaining your position, salary,
and terms of employment, including length of vacation
time can be used to show you intend to return to
Thailand. Original documents from your bank showing
account information can prove you have the necessary
funds to cover the costs of your trip. In addition,
a lease on an apartment, home and car registration,
marriage certificates, proof of business ownership
and any other proof that you intend to return to
Thailand can be used as further evidence. It is
especially important that you can prove that you
have a residence in Thailand that you wish to return
