Hi Everyone!

Is there a visa category for a U.S. citizen Grandparent to bring a Grandson to the USA?

This lady immigrated from Colombia and got her citizenshiop through normal channels, her daughter is still alive and still lives in Colombia but it is the Grandson that is primarily interested in immigrating.

Many thanks.

The only way would be for the daughter/mother to immigrate first, and then petition the grandson.

My wife mother and father wanted to bring their two grand kids to the U.S to live. And was advice that' they need to adopt them first and either the mother or father had to go back to Guyana n spend 2 years with them after adoption. Both of them are in the U.S now. But this is over 4 years now not sure if it's the same process.

Hi,

This is not allowed. The U.S. has very strict rules about adoption and immigration. If it was allowed, how many of us would adopt family so they can immigrate?

Your parents got very bad advice.
