US Embassy Visa Interviews – E-ticket Appointments for US Non Immigrant Visas

by admin on April 25, 2011

If you plan to visit the USA as a tourist or with non-immigrant status, the visa application process in Bangkok for even a tourist visa can be extensive.

Firstly, you will need to fill out an online US Non Immigration visa application  that can be found on the US Department of State website. Your next step is to purchase an e-ticket in order to obtain a visa interview at the US Embassy for your Non Immigrant visa. Fees vary for the e-ticket depending on which type of Non Immigrant visa you are applying for. You can schedule your visa interview appointment in Thailand via the e-ticket service here: . Before you begin the US visa application process, it is wise to consult the US visa application wait times <> page, to determine how far in advance of your intended travel date that you will need to apply. Currently the wait time is listed at 21 days for visitor visas, however, during busy holiday periods the wait time can be extended to as long as 3 months.

The US is aware that the visa process is laborious for foreign nationals who simply want to visit the US for tourism purposes or for other short to long term stays. The US Congress is now discussing how the visa process may be improved and expedited, particularly in light of the current state of the United States’ economy. Foreign visitors bring in a large amount of money to the U.S. every year, with the average visitor spending about $4,000 during their trip.

In 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Travel Promotion Act into law, which allows for the creation of public-private partnerships in order to entice more foreign visitors to the United States.

However, this new initiative only has a shot at success if the U.S. improves its visa application procedure to make it easier and faster for applicants.

… “I know, it sounds like Heaven for a haodmne White guy.”Are you an ESL teacher in Asia? They often have that same razor sharp acuity that you just displayed. And their rankings of world racial groups is dead on- the attractiveness, attitudes, genetic quality, smarts. Kudos, handsome, accomplished white guy.”Hey, just reporting the facts as I experienced them. Sorry if it bruised your little ego.What, I am suppose to do… lie to protect your precious sense of self-esteem?Regarding how most Asians view Blacks and Browns… there is no question based on what I saw and heard that they are just as or more racists than Whites. You are delusional if you think otherwise.In fact, in Shanghai there were Chinese riots against the miniscule African immigrant population that went largely unreported in the West (when was the last time Whites rioted against the presence of foreigners or Blacks in the U.S.?).There have also been many assaults against foreigners in Korea, even including some against White foreigners but most against non-Whites, which have also gone largely unreported in the Western press (when was the last time you heard of Whites completely unprovoked atacking non-White tourists or those here on an H1-B visa in the U.S.?)My impression of Koreans is that like Chinese they are very aware of race.Granted, some Chinese and Koreans are cool and try not to be racist, but a lot are not.Don’t confuse “is” and “ought” a distinction commonly taught in Philosophy 101.It’s not a sign of high intelligence and makes you sound petty and insecure.
