Making a UK Visa Application for a Thai Girlfriend

8th January, 2014

How to get my Thai girlfriend a visa to visit England

If your Thai girlfriend wants to visit you in the UK she will need a visa. If she does not have a valid visa stamped in her passport it is very probable she will not even be able to board the plane that is flying to the UK.

Anybody from Thailand (including and especially Thai girlfriends) arriving at any British port, either by air or sea, without a valid visa in their passport will be held by the UK Border Agency and returned to Thailand without ever stepping foot into the United Kingdom.

Every Thai girlfriend will need a valid visa to enter the UK. The only likely visa she will be issued with is a British or UK Visitor visa – England Tourist Visa

How to apply for your Thai girlfriend’s visa to the UK

  • The visa application must be made in Thailand Bangkok.
  • The UK visa application form must be completed only in the English language.
  • The Thai girlfriend must always have a UK sponsor
  • Written evidence of a relationship must be provided to support the application.
  • Evidence (such as a return ticket) must be provided to suggest that the girlfriend will return to Thailand after her trip must be shown
  • Evidence to show there are sufficient funds available to pay for the trip to the UK and also the return trip back to Thailand. (copy sponsors bank statement)

The visa officers main role is to protect the UK from unsuitable people, crime etc. Because of this the visa officer can refuse any visa application on very little justification.

Any visa application made to the UK by a Thai girlfriend, the appraising visa officer will need to satisfy himself that the real reason for the trip is tourism and the Thai lady will return after her trip without any cost to the British Tax payer.

Within hours of landing many men are confusing lust with love.

The phone calls and internet chats begin with the Thai girlfriend telling him/her well rehearsed account of how much she loves and misses him. Finally, defenceless he completely falls in love with her and asks her to visit him in the UK, she says she doesn’t have the money and the dye is caste.

In this situation there is only one type of visa available for a Thai girlfriend wishing to visit England in these circumstances a UK Tourist Visa.
