After the interview, if the consular officer requests additional information or documents during your interview, you will need to submit them at Thailand Post document drop-off locations (Bangkok locations (PDF 78 KB) or other locations (PDF 90 KB)), which will deliver your documents to the Immigrant Visa unit at this address:

U.S. Embassy Bangkok
120-122 Wireless Road
Lumpini, Patumwan
Bangkok 10330

Visa Issuance

The validity of an fiancé(e) visa is tied to the validity of the applicant’s medical examination report. Therefore, if you plan to travel to the United States after the expiration date of your medical exam, you will need to complete a new medical exam that is valid during that travel period. Please be sure to inform the consular officer so a 221G letter may be provided for directions on how to submit the exam at a later date.

After the visa is approved, the visa package will be mailed to the applicant’s address registered on his/her GSS profile within 7-10 business days. Please ensure that you register your address on the GSS website correctly and update any changes before your interview. Remember to print out and submit the GSS address registration confirmation page to the IV unit with your Packet 3 documents. Applicants are reminded not to purchase plane tickets or make any other plans until the visa package, including passport and U.S. visa, is received.

Before Traveling to the United States

  • Check your visa package and information on the immigrant visa.
  • DO NOT open the sealed packet. You must carry the sealed visa packet with you when you travel. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the U.S. port of entry will open this package and examine the documents inside.
  • Travel within the visa validity period. You can use the existing visa to travel to the United States until the expiration date.
