Hello!!! I almost done with all the process for my mom's petition. However I did this application because she didn't get her tourist visa last year. She is almost 70 years old and the officer told her that she didn't have any grand child and she was widowed for that reason she didn't have ties in her country.

I know that My mom will be here 6 months first time but i am pretty sure that she will no keep coming every 6 months so i was wondering if she could talk to the officer and see how to get her tourist visa after approved her inmigrant one??

thanks

If she has an immigrant visa, she cannot get a tourist visa...they are contradictory. If she really has no intention of living in the US, what you are doing is borderline fraud, but I won't judge. If she wants to visit Peru after getting the immigrant visa, she would have to spend a considerable amount of time in the US every year. There really is no official amount of time she needs to spend, but if she goes back to Peru for more than a few months out of the year it will really raise suspicions and put her green card in jeopardy.

I suppose that if she gives up her residency status someday, it may be easier to get a tourist visa in the future, but I really have no idea.

Yes she can get a 10 year multiple visa in return of her PR card/green card. As she has no intention of staying in US anymore. But it's always better to have her enter as Green Card holder and than if she doesn't like it over there, have her return to her own country of citizenship, and later decided if you want to return her PR or want to keep it with green card entry permit. I don't think a visitor visa as of now is an option for you, as already her GC visa will be labelled on her passport.
