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
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.
Over the past 10 years there has been an increased number of Thai girlfriends applying for a UK Tourist Visa
The cost or air travel from Thailand to the UK has gone down making it affordable for working class and people with small businesses from the UK to travel to Thailand for holidays and tourism. Thailand’s tourism industry grown. Many of the men visiting from the UK came only came for a holiday but left with much, much more.
The Thai culture is different from that of the UK and the West. Sex is more available in Thailand and is available without the shame the west has traditionally put upon it. The British men arriving in the popular holiday destinations like Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket and Patpong have little resilience to the charms and beauty of the local Thai ladies. Within hours of landing many men are confusing lust with love. The holiday ends and the man returns to the UK heartbroken, lonely and soon missing their Thai beautiful, sweet and…. faithful) Thai girlfriend.
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.
