your MIL must apply for a tourist visa at the consulate. She must meet the eligibility requirements of the visa on her own.

It will be close to impossible for her to get a visa to the US.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Does she own significant property in Iran? Is her husband living? Does she have other children or grandchildren in Iran? Does she have other family members in Iran? Does she own a car? Does she own her own very successful business? These and other similar questions are very crucial to obtaining a tourist visa to the US and if she can answer yes to most or all of them, her chances will increase.

Unfortunately, the fact that she is from Iran will way heavily against her. While she probably has no intention of staying in Iran, many people from Iran have chosen to use a tourist visa to visit the US and then stay illegally. There are about 6 million people from around the world that are in the US through these means, and the State Department is cracking done.

Furthermore, I doubt that the political tension between the US and Iran will help her and will most likely hurt her chances.

Is it impossible? No. Is it nearly impossible? yes, because without you giving us more information, we assume that she probably will not be able to present enough ties to Iran that will demonstrate that she will return after the wedding (although our judgment really does not matter). Maybe she does have enough evidence and the consulate officer will believe her. If she is the owner of one of the biggest companies of Iran and will lose all of her money because she does not return, she very well could get the visa. If she owns a decently sized business or other factors that require her to return, she may get a tourist visa, but don't be surprised if they deny her several times before she finally obtains one, if she ever does.

Again, I am sure that your mother in law only has good intentions, but it is the actions of millions of others who have abused the system (plus the political situation) that make it very unlikely.

Tourist visas are always a ####### shoot. 50/50 chance of getting one.

She will need SIGNIFICANT and OVERWHELMING ties to Iran in order to convince the CO that she will not overstay her welcome in the U.S.

Her own business may help, depending on its size and whether or not it would be easy to simply leave the business in the judgement of the consular officer. However, the lack of family other than your fiancée will be very difficult to overcome. I really would consider posting in the regional forum, which I think can be found here.

Iran is going to be a special case, because we do not even have a special interest section there. Iranian citizens can apply for a visa in Turkey, like you know. They have some information here.

Is this what you meant to say?

Your chances are slim given that it's Iran but yes, it can't hurt to try.

It is near to impossible but all it will cost is time and money to try. Please remember she must travel to another country as Iran has no consulate and it May require two trips if the visa is approved. Better idea would be to have the wedding party in Iran, a lot more fun there too.
