Aung San Agnes, a young Thai girl, has won the US visa she had been waiting for for more than two years, her father said on Friday.
The US State Department issued the visa, the Associated Press reported.
Ms Aung said she had applied for it in December 2016, but was turned down by the US embassy.
She had applied twice before for a waiver to get her visa.
“I was waiting for the visa and now I got it,” she told the AP.
Aung, who has been living in Thailand since 2014, said she was hoping to come to the US soon.
“There are some things I want to do in the US,” she said.
“But right now I have to go back home.”
Aung was born in Myanmar and is a US citizen.
She was granted a visa in March, shortly after the election of US President Donald Trump, the AP reported.
“We are pleased to welcome our daughter back to the United States,” said US State department spokesman John Kirby in a statement.
“She is a wonderful young woman who will bring many good memories to our country.”
The visa waiver program allows families to sponsor a child into the United State, which has a long tradition of granting refugee status to immigrants from Myanmar and Laos.
Ms Agnes had been seeking a visa for more years, before she was turned away.
She appealed to the embassy but said she has not received a response.
“The fact that they refused me does not surprise me.
I was waiting years for a visa,” she was quoted as saying in an interview with the Associated Post newspaper.
The family of Aung Aung Myint was granted refugee status by the United Nations in 2012, and she moved to the UK after her family was displaced by Myanmar’s military coup.
She has lived in the UK for several years.
Ms Suu, a Thai-American politician, fled Myanmar’s armed uprising in 2014.
In December last year, she was arrested in the southern town of Kachin state after she crossed into the US illegally.
She said she feared being taken back to Myanmar and would be sent back to Thailand.
“My daughter was the one who made me realise that I had no choice but to leave my country and move to the USA,” Ms Suun told reporters.

A Reuters story on the Aung family in January reported that Ms Suan, who was aged just five when she fled, was being sought by the UK’s Home Office for a refugee visa.
A woman who fled Myanmar for Britain was sentenced to life in prison for her role in the coup.
Ms Sathya, whose family fled the coup in the 1970s, was granted permanent residency status by Britain in 2015.
