This will normally lead to a visa denial in Thailand and you will need to seek proper legal advice in this regards. Below is a short list of the most common issues and how each of these affect your visa application. You should review this and speak to an immigration lawyer for full details. There is also a criminal record check so read about that as well.
Ineligibility and Waivers with Health
One of the most common issues with a visa denial would be related to a medical condition.These are the basics for ineligibility and waivers with health issues. These conditions one can sum up as follows:
The visa applicant has a communicable disease of public health significance. This again will depend on the type of illness and once the illness clears an appeal could be made, so speak to an immigration lawyer for more information on this.
The person has not been vaccinated against vaccine-preventable diseases such as mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, influenza type B and hepatitis B. You will need to speak to an immigration lawyer about what vaccines are required as you will need to find these certificates.
If the consular officer believes that you have a physical or mental disorder and behavior associated with the disorder which might prove to be a public threat then they will also deny you the visa. You will again need to consult a lawyer in Thailand about this type of visa denial.
If the consular officer discovers that you are a drug abuser or addict then again the visa can also be denied.
These medical problems might be for an adult however this could also occur during a K2 or K4 visa application where it is a child. You would have to take legal advice on this matter as normally a child 10 years of age or younger will get a visa waiver for these conditions as long as there is an adult to accept responsibility for the child.
Mandatory vaccinations for a child can be delay until such time that the child is either given the appropriate vaccines or it has to be done within 30 days of entering the United States. You will again have to speak to an immigration lawyer about the visa waiver as well as the in ineligibility for children who are under the age of 10. As stated this mainly would occur during a K2 visa while the mother is applying for a fiancé visa for the US or a K4 visa where the mother is applying for a spouse visa for the US from Thailand.
If your Thai wife or Thai fiancée has not had the proper vaccinations then she will have to obtain these. Most vaccinations in Thailand is mandatory and she will have to local proof for this which does take time. Most times these have been given while she was still at primary school.
When applying for a K2 visa from Thailand or a K4 visa from Thailand applicants as well as the sponsor, being you tend to forget that the children also need to be checked for vaccinations for their visa application. Always take proper legal advice with as these are only the very basics for ineligibility and waivers with health issues in Thailand.
