The United States is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. A Thai national who wants to travel to the United States must apply for a B Visa. The B Visa is for visitors to the United States for business or pleasure. The B visa is also known as the tourist visa.
The vast majority of Thai citizens enter the United States on a B visa. The visa is used for touring, visiting family members, or to conduct business on behalf of an overseas employer. The duration of stay is usually short and most are provided a six month period of stay after entering the United States.
