Requesting Tourist Visa while waiting on I-130

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a question about my visa. My tourist visa will expire in May, and I´m planning to renew it, would they give it to me if I apply even if my I-130 is pending. I need advice from anybody out there that is not Visa Waiver that has the same problem or almost the same. I want to keep visiting my wife while the petition is waiting to be approved.

Thanks and God bless you all :):thumbs:

Probably not. Your marriage to a US Citizen will be clear evidence of immigrant intent, making you legally ineligible to obtain or renew a tourist visa. You would most likely be free to USE the existing visa though prior to its expiration.

You can try, but I am 99% certain you will be denied.

Before we filed our I-130 (after we were married, but waiting on marriage cert. from CR), my husband filed for a student visa. He had been accepted by UConn and everything was in order. However, once the Embassy saw that he was married to a USC, they informed him that he did nout qualify. They stated that he did not meet the no intent to immigrate requirement due to having USC spouse.

The requirement is the same for the tourist visa, so I doubt you can get one.
