Visa Interview Appointments at the US Embassy in Thailand

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are doing an update on Visa interviews; status associated there with on that topic. What is going on here at the US Embassy here in Thailand? 

I have had a lot of emails from folks asking me "Hey are they doing interviews? What is going on with my case?" Or people that aren't clients are inquiring with us what the situation is. Long story short, yes we have been seeing since Biden came in, this administration, we have seen a number of cases processed out. We have seen interviews happen. We have seen cases approved and we have seen people off to the United States.

The reason for this video is I think people are wondering "well what is going on because I haven't gotten my interview?" Well they are backlogged okay? Basically there is about nine months of case load that basically went into the deep freeze and then just all suddenly came back online. Then on top of that, there is stuff behind it. To the Embassies credit, to the Consular Officers over there's credit, they are doing the best that they can. There is no doubt about that. They are moving stuff through. In fact they have been as efficient or more efficient, I hesitate to cast aspersions on anything in the past, but a lot of the digital systems are making it a little bit faster but yeah they are moving stuff through as best they can. But, there is a lot going on and we are all only human so it is only going to move as fast as it can. It is going to take a little while. There are some cases unfortunately, I have seen stuff still at NVC; it is taking a while for it to get over here to the Embassy. There are a lot of variables coming into play with respect to this but yes things are back online. We are seeing cases process through but it is probably going to take some time. If you are still at NVC, it could be a little while before we start seeing interviews in your case.
