Dear Friends.

Has anyone had ACTUAL experience of (i) filing a Green Card application for a parent, who resides abroad; (ii) that same parent applying for a visitor visa while the Green Card app is pending? (ACTUAL experience, not speculation)

If so: (a) what was the result? (B) if successful, how did he/she handle the question whether he/she intends to immigrate (if it wasa asked)?

Many thanks.

Kind regards

Duncan

If you actually do some reading here in this forum and other forums on VJ you will be able to learn about many members' experiences when applying for visitor visas while any type immigrant petition is on file.

I will speculate that many beneficiaries have been successful and some have not. The only risks are the application fee and potentially being turned away at POE.

We just did this for my wifes daughter. Applied for her immigration visa 2 years ago and earlier this year she got a 2 year visitors visa. She visited us last month. She was not asked if she intends to immigrate (that I know of), but I did write an invitation letter in which I explained that she had an active immigration petition and that we would be sure she will return to Russia so as not to jeopardize that petition.

Thanks NeonRed.

That is encouraging.

Kindest regards.
