If you are visiting the US for a holiday then this is the visa which you will need. The B1 Tourist visa is to be applied for in Bangkok if you are going to the US to attend a meeting or to conduct business with a US firm or a business partner in the United States. The B2 tourist visa however is what you need if your only purpose for visiting the US is for a holiday or visiting friends. The B2 US Visa is the most common visa issued compared to the B1 visa.
The US tourist visa application can be very difficult to obtain and requires many supporting documents in order to be granted the US visa. There is also a very difficult interview with the visa officer in Bangkok who will investigate your claims and check to ensure that you are a legitimate tourist. If they are satisfied then the visa application will be approved. Otherwise failing it will be added to the many US Visa denials in Thailand that you have read of on the internet.
Now in order for you to be granted a US tourist visa in Thailand you need to establish and be able to show a strong economic and social ties to Thailand so they know that you will return. These economic ties can be in the form of employment or having a business in Thailand. You could also show land title deeds or savings in your bank account. all of these should be well documented for the visa application. As stated above if it is your fiancee then apply for a K1 Visa or a K3 Visa if it is for your Thai wife. USCIS are very strict in this regard.
In case you are traveling to the US through a friend’s or relative’s invitation and sponsorship, the inviting US party needs to complete an affidavit of support form stating his desire to accommodate and handle all incidental expenses once you are in the US.
