Hi, and thanks for stopping in here to read this.

I have been dating a girl from Brazil and she does have a current and unused tourist visa to come here.

Questions:

Upon her arrival in Chicago, what will they ask her about the purpose of her trip?

Will it matter if she says she is here to be a tourist or to visit me as my girlfriend?

Will they ask her for proof of funds she would require to be a tourist here?

Will she need an invitation letter from me saying I will support her financial needs while here, in the USA?

Am I missing anything here? Thanks Ray

1. They will ask her what is the purpose of your trip?

2. She will have to tell the truth, she is a tourist visiting her boyfriend

3. They might. Since she, I suppose, has a roundtrip ticket that will assure them that she doesn't intend to stay, that'll do. Also, it doesn't hurt to have a letter from you stating that she is coming to visit only for X amount of time, your personal information phone, address, etc and be prepared on that day in case the immigration officer calls you, sometimes they do just to double check the info is true and they may even call you in. Also, ask her to bring proof that she is currently working, latest paystub or something that proves that she doesn't need $$ help, just in case.

Before I became a permanent resident, or even a student, I used to come regularly w/a turist visa and they never gave me a hard time at all, just had to provide the address where I was staying, time of stay, maybe roundtrip ticket and proof that my intentions where to comeback to Mexico.

Chicago was a very friendly POE to me :yes: when I traveled with a B-2.

Tell your gf to relax and answer every question honestly. She will be ok :)
