Non B Visa From Us


Recommended Posts

I am planning to apply for a multiple entry non immigrant B visa in Chicago. Will my passport, invitation letter, and photos, and application suffice, or do I need to provide all the other company documentation as well? It seems an invitation letter was enough a while back.

Thanks for any input! :o

You might get lucky in a honorary consulate.

Here are the official rules.

Don't let this take down your spirit.

Many honorary consulates have their own rules.

Contact them and ask if can get a non-B with only invitation letter.

Here's a list for you: Thai representative offices
