arrowChances of getting tourist visa for wife's olderst daughter?

Background - wife has 3 daughters  - 2 live with us and one ( she is 19) lives back in Colombia with her 2 year old( wife;s grandaughter)

the wife and other two daughters came here under fiancee visa - we are now married and everyone has their green card.

But she would like the oldest to visit with granddaughter - she wants to relocate them here but that may take years - in the mean time a tourist visa would allow them to stay here for 6 months,

The daughter has an interview on Tuesday in Bogota for the tourist visa for her and the baby - no job in Colombia, no money, no property - so may not look good for a visa but things seem to have loosened up - with her mother and 2 sisters in the USA would think she would have a compelling story though.

arrowHow to pay the fee for form I 130 when out of the country (from Colombia)

Hi everyone,


I (US citizen) live in Colombia with my Colombian husband and we are about to file the form I-130. However, I have no idea how to pay the fee, since I live in Colombia and will not be able to go to the US. I do have a US bank account. I called USCIS, and the person I spoke to was rude and wouldn´t answer any of my questions (it was obvious he had no idea and was just reading from a piece of paper), and I am left more confused on how to pay the fee out of the country.


Also, there is a Citibank in Colombia, but it is a foreign branch and not the same as in the US. So I am pretty sure that would not work. 


Could someone please tell me what my options are to pay the fee from abroad? Thank you in advance!

Hello All,


I am working on helping my sister-in-law get a tourist visa to come visit us in the summer of 2015.  I know that there is the option of select your own date for the interview in Bogota however I would like to know if anyone knows how far in advance the date can be scheduled?


We plan on traveling to Bogota in late december and would like for her to be able to schedule the date for the same time we are there.


I would greatly appreciate input form someone who has recently gone through the process of getting a tourist visa from Colombia.


Thank you

arrowQuestion about fast approval

I have been married to a lovely Colombian lady for 15 months. We have lived in Medellin since the marriage. I submitted the I-130 for my wife and two children on Sept. 15, thinking that with the normal processing times, we might hit the two year mark around the time she came to the states (thus being an IR-1). Surprise, surprise!! After exactly one month, I received notice that the two children have been approved and more info is needed for my wife. I will address this as soon as I receive a copy of the 797 (it's in the US, still).


Question right now is this: Anyone have experience with cases being processed this quickly? Possibly for direct embassy processing in Bogota, in the sense of largely bypassing the NVC wait? Never heard of a one month turn around and just curious what it might mean.

Copying this from the Colombian forum to see if there are any responses here.

Please dont jump on me for trying to scam the system.. this is a honest question..


My step daughter visiting on a tourist visa is 12 years old.. she lives with her biological father in Colombia, but is here visiting her Mom (my wife - US Resident)...


Her father, has asked if we can arrange for her to stay here.. it turns out his wife doesnt get along with my step daughter and her father feels it would be better for my wifes daughter stay here...


So, is there a legal pathway to adjust status to Resident.. also, my wife is now eligible to apply for citizenship since June of this year (if that makes any diference in your answers)


Please, we are looking to follow the rules and we are asking to know if there is any special considerations for a minor child who is legally my step daughter and the biological daughter of a LPR-soon to be USC...


Thanks in advance for any help...
