Will US Embassy Report Me for Expired Visa?

Recommended Posts

I need to get an authentication of signature notary from the US Embassy, but I’m a bit nervous to go to there because I have overstayed my tourist visa by a few months now. I know that the security clearance requires that I show my passport, but will they check my visa status, and more importantly will they report me to immigration if they know of my overstay status??? 
I need to send a notarized document to a family member in the US so he can obtain my court records for my Thai wife’s US K3 Visa application...and time is ticking. Any help, info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

They will not report you overstay. They only want to see your passport photo page.

You will need a copy of the photo page to give to them when you get the notary service done.

Have you used the notary service at the US Embassy? The reason why I ask is because I’m trying to decide if I should use the embassy or a less costly Thai lawyer notary for the basic service I need done. It’s not like I’m trying to enter a business/legal contract or some other highly sensitive matter.

For what you want the document to be used for I think the notary at the embassy would be needed.

For somethings a Thai notary may be accepted.

Yes, I have a suggestion. As you know what important work you have that needs to be done, you should think about not risking all by overstaying your visa.

OP, not sure about USA embassy. Just advise to bring along funds.

Last year I sold a property in AU. I needed to attend embassy to witness my signature on couple docs. I walked out about 4k baht out of pocket.

I would be concerned at the amount of travel to the embassy. The further away it is, with the added problems of overnight stays if that applies, the more likely you will be caught.

Use the US notary services and eat the fees.  If you use a Thai notary/legal service, somebody there may decide to drop a dime on you.
