I am a 21 year-old guy who moved to the US from Colombia when I was a little boy (2 years-old), and lived there until I was 18 and 1/2. I overstayed my visa as a minor so therefore speaking in terms of bar time, there is none aplicable since the time overstayed in the US after turning 18 is only 5 months. I decided to come back to Colombia to avoid having any overstayed time taken against me.
While I was still underage, about 14 years old, my mother married and American Citizen, with the intention of gaining citizenship. During this process my mother, older brother, and I obtained social security numbers and temporary permanent resident cards (Which I took advantage of and worked through most of my high school years at a McDonald s for college). Yet, during the interview, two years later for permanent resident satatus, the marriage wasd declared fraudulent. My mother was never put in removal procceding, and decided to leave on her own before entering such a process -- she sent the proper notification to USCIS informing that she was leaving.
As for me and my brother, we stayed in the US with my grandmother. I finished high school and decided that I didn`t want to live as an undocumented immigrant, and decided to come down to Colombia for college. Meanwhile, my brother is still in the states living and working.
Its been almost three years since i ve been living in Colombia. Already finishing my junior year in college and have worked all throughout college. Thankfully i ve and have a great paying job due to my ability to speak english.
I ve wanted to apply for a B1/B2 Toruist Visa for two reasons:
1. Have the freedom of being able to travel without limitations based on a descicion that was taken for me as a minor
2. I current work for a multinational company based in theUS, and there are many career growth oportunities which would requiere for me to travel to the US frequently.
I have NO intention of living in the US, but simply work and travel as a tourist.
1. Is it possible for me to be granted a B1/B2 type visa?
2. On the visa aplication form, it asks if I have any relatives in the US, and what their legal status is, should I list my brother or would that have future consequences for him?
(If I were granted the visa, I would mainly be traveling to Florida and Georgia, and in neither of the two my brother lives.
Thank you for all of your help!
