Assistance for Thai Immigration to the U.S.

For individuals from Thailand who are seeking to enter and reside in the United States, there are a multitude of immigration issues that can arise. The immigration process can be complex, time-consuming, and overwhelming. Fortunately, with the help of an experienced immigration attorney, people from Thailand can successfully navigate these challenges and achieve their goals of living and working legally in the United States.

Family-Based Visa Applications

One common pathway for immigrants from Thailand to obtain authorization to come to the United States is through family-based visa applications. Family members who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents may sponsor certain relatives for immigrant visas. Different types of family visas may be available depending on the immigration status of the relatives living in the United States and the family relationship between the immigrant and the sponsor.

In general, Immediate Relative (IR) visas will be available for close family members of U.S. citizens. A citizen may sponsor their spouse, unmarried minor children, or parents for immigration, and they can usually receive visas without waiting periods or other limitations. For other types of family relationships, Family Preference (F) visas may be an option. Lawful permanent residents can apply for F visas for their immediate family members, and U.S. citizens may sponsor unmarried adult children, married children of any age, and siblings for these types of visas. There are limits on the number of people from each category who will be able to receive Family Preference visas each year, and families will often have to wait multiple years until these types of visas become available.

An immigration attorney can provide guidance for families throughout each step of the visa application process, ensuring that all necessary forms and supporting documents are properly completed and submitted. At Khan Nayyar & Associates, LLC, we can make sure all required evidence of family relationships will be provided to immigration officials, and we will help address any concerns that may affect family members during the immigration process.

Employment-Based Visa Applications

Another route for immigration that may be available for individuals from Thailand is through employment-based visa applications. An employer may sponsor an immigrant for a temporary work visa or an immigrant visa that will allow them to resettle in the United States permanently There are several different categories of work visas under which an individual may qualify based on their education level, skills, experience, and their position at a U.S.-based employer.

H-1B visas are commonly sought by immigrants who have high levels of education and experience. These temporary visas will allow people in certain occupations to live and work in the United States for a limited number of years. To qualify for an H-1B visa, an immigrant will usually need to have a bachelor's degree or an equivalent level of education, and the position must require specialized knowledge or skills.

Employees may also receive sponsorship for immigrant visas known as EB visas that will allow them to maintain permanent residence in the U.S. Different types of EB visas may be available based on a person's level of education and experience. Some of the most common types of employment-based immigrant visas include EB-2 and EB-3 visas, which may be available for people who have advanced degrees and people who are classified as professionals, skilled workers, or unskilled workers.

At Khan Nayyar & Associates, LLC, we can help immigrants assess their qualifications and determine what types of employment-based visas will be suitable based on their specific circumstances. We can work with employers and employees to prepare and submit the necessary forms and documentation when applying for work-based visas, including letters of recommendation, educational transcripts, job offer letters, contracts, and any other materials required by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Green Cards and Adjustment of Status

Lawful permanent residency will allow individuals from Thailand to live and work permanently in the United States. People who enter the United States on immigrant visas will be able to apply for a Green Card, which will give them the right to live anywhere within the country and work for U.S. employers. Immigrants who are currently present in the United States on a temporary visa may be able to apply for adjustment of status in certain situations, which will allow them to continue living in the country as lawful permanent residents.

Our attorneys can help immigrants understand the eligibility requirements for obtaining a Green Card or applying for adjustment of status. If there are any legal issues that may make a person ineligible for immigration, we can determine whether waivers of inadmissibility may be available. We will work with immigrants to resolve any concerns they may encounter and ensure that they can maintain a legal status in the United States.
