Reasons for the Denials of US K-1 fiancée visa in Thailand

US k-1 fiancée visa in Thailand are now harder to get, but why have they at all? It can take months, up to six agonizing and stressful months, to hear if you’ve been approved or denied a fiancé visa. In some cases, it may even take longer. This fact is especially true if any issues come up with your application or if the investigation uncovers unfavorable information about yourself, your thai fiancé, or your relationship. In addition to delaying your application, one or more of the following could result in a denial letter rather than the visa you were hoping for.

Most Common Reasons for the Denials of US k-1 Fiancée Visa in Thailand

About 95% of all applications are approved, whereas some are visa customers are denied. Denials are few and far between. But they do happen. Here are some of the most common denial reasons we see out there.

  1. Your fiancé has violated the terms of his or her U.S. visa in the past. Overstaying a visa by more than 180 days can cause your fiancé to not be able to obtain a US K-1 fiancé visa for 3 years.
  2. Either you or your fiancé having past criminal issues. Any past criminal matter should be evaluated by the Attorney, prior to filing, to make sure it will not cause the case to be denied.
  3. One of you is not free to marry. A case will be denied if it is filed early before you are legally divorced.  Prior to filing you should make absolutely sure that all previous marriages, for both parties, are completely terminated.
  4. The paperwork you provide USCIS is incomplete. You should be given a Request for Evidence to correct this type of problem.  If you do you need to timely provide the requested information or your case will be denied.
  5. Not being able to financially support your spouse. You must show the U.S. government that you make 100% of the federal poverty level for this type of case.  This is because you will be paying the U.S. government back in case your thai fiancé gets government benefits. If you do not make this amount of money you may be able to obtain a co-sponsor to help you but this is not true in every case.  If your finances are shaky you should definitely talk to a Thai visa attorney prior to filing.
  6. Your Fiance has a medical condition which could threaten public safety or is mentally ill or has a drug or alcohol problem.
  7. Not Telling the Truth on Your paperwork. Lying on paperwork can lead to very serious consequences.  Simply don’t do it.
  8. The Immigration Officer has reason to believe that the relationship is not real. This may include a large age difference, limited visits between the parties, not speaking a same language or there being a short amount of time from the time of meeting to the time of applying for the fiancé visa.
  9. It has been more than 2 years since you last saw your fiancé in person. Seeing someone on skype does not count as an in person meeting. Keep receipts, plane tickets and other evidence of any in-person meetings you have with your fiancé.
  10. Don’t let mistakes or big application blunders ruin your chances of bringing your Fiance to the United States.
  11. Your fiancé has a bad interview.  Long story short your fiancé should know a lot about you in order to have a good interview.  It may be embarrassing to you but tell her all about yourself, your past relationships and any criminal history.  This way she will have a better chance of success.
