The other way of applying is for a FIANCEE VISA whereby the applicant can apply for a 90 days visa if they are going to marry an American. They can apply if they have been refused a Tourist visa and the necessary forms are available from any consulate. Should they not marry after 90 days then the applicant must leave the USA and any further applications by that same person may be deemed finished. You must do this yourself and a Thai lawyer cannot help you. Please note you must process yourself with the Consulate. Our Thai Lawyer cannot help you. Got to [ Fiancee visa ]
