Welcome to the Nonimmigrant Visa Homepage!
Thank you for your interest in traveling to the United States. We hope that this website makes it easier for you to select and apply for the proper nonimmigrant visa.
Nonimmigrant visas (also called visitor or tourist visas) are required for all citizens of countries not under the Visa Waiver Program who intend to enter the United States temporarily for business, tourism or study. The type of nonimmigrant visa you will need and the requirements to apply for that visa depend largely on your purpose of travel to the United States.
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 no visa appointments on Thai and U.S. holidays.
