B1/B2 visa for parents of green card holder

Hi everyone,

I received my green card one year ago. Came to the U.S. as a K-1 holder. Due to the situation in my country (ethnic riots) me and my American husband decided that it is not safe us to visit my country right now. Hereby I decided maybe they will come to visit us in the U.S, because it is a lot a LOT Safer than my back home. I looked up how to apply for the visitor's visa but have no idea how to start first? I would be happy to get any advices and answers such as what website to use, what documents do I need, and how long this process can take? It would be good for them to have a nice vacation in the U.S after all these terrible things has happened to people in my parent's country. However, I also concerned that they can have problems getting a visa, because of the situation in my country? on other websites I read that applicants should prove that they have strong connection to their native country and will not overstay their visitor's visa. My parents have no intentions to overstay their visa, but they may get refused in visa because what if consular office can misunderstand and think that my parents seek a safety in the U.S and may change their minds on coming back to their native country? It is just my own thoughts, but I will be very happy to any advice and answers. Thanks in advance..

go back to the instructions, and read again.

Yer parents are to file at an Embassy (not you).

on other websites I read that applicants should prove that they have strong connection to their native country and will not overstay their visitor's visa. You'll see that here, as well. Actually, that 'phrasing' is on MOST US Embassy/Consulate Websites in the Tourist Visa Section - so it makes sense that you see it on other web portals, as these sites are copying what a US Embassy says about 'this'.

Good Luck !

I think all do, it is the standard language.

I would imagine it is going to be difficult to get a visa for the reasons you stated. No harm trying.

You can't really help your parents.

It will be difficult for them to get tourists visas because the Immigration Officer at the consulate may assume they want to get away from Kyrgyzstan and into the safe US of A. If your parents now tell them that they have a daughter who is a resident in the USA, the Immigration Officer may even get more suspicious.

Then again, aside from the money it cost to apply (2 x $131.00), it's worth trying.


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.

They would not have to tell them, it will be on the application form.
