Nonimmigrant Visa Application Procedures
ALL APPLICANTS, REGARDLESS OF AGE (excluding those applying for diplomatic visas), ARE REQUIRED TO APPEAR AT THE EMBASSY FOR AN INTERVIEW.
The consular section at U.S. Embassy Bangkok provides visa services for citizens and residents of Thailand. If you live in Chiang Mai or its surrounds, you may interview for nonimmigrant visas in Chiang Mai.
The Embassy strongly encourages intending travelers to apply for visas well in advance of their proposed travel, and always to refrain from making irrevocable travel plans until they have received their passports with visas. Please note that there are not visa appointments on Thai and U.S. holidays.
For information regarding medical emergencies and expedited appointment requests, please go to the Expedited Visa Appointments page.
As of February 7, 2014, all nonimmigrant visa appointments are made through our new website http://www.ustraveldocs.com/th
