Tourist Visa for my sister below 18 yrs old

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just want to ask what are the odds of my sister having a visitor's visa?

We would like her to visit us around March to April next year during school vacation as an advance 18th birthday gift.

She is just 17 by that time and still pursuing her degree so she would not overstay.

Thanks.


I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give and all that I am, in the only way I know how -- completely and forever......

Of course then can.

More a single female thing, she applies and she will find out.

Its not minor - there are couple of factors working against her.

1. She is at right age where she can very easily adopt and accept new culture.

2. She can marry someone for pusrpose of migration and can overstay her visit.

3. depends on how much of her degree is left and if she would really go back to complete her degree back in home country.

4. She is traveling alone.

5. She has family for support in US.

This all does not mean she will not get VISA, you can give a shot and might get VISA too... :)

Young, Single Female from the Philippines... Unless her family is Rich there she really doesn't have a chance because:

1) She has family here that can support her.

2) At 17 she hasn't really invested herself in post-secondary education yet so completing a degree that she either has just started or is planning to start isn't a strong tie.

3) It would be too easy for her to find someone to marry here to stay.

4) Because of the economic situation back home and cultural norms she'd be assumed to be likely to want to work her to help support her family back home, The family she left behind isn't a strong tie as much as a motivation to overstay or marry for CG over love.

Thanks for all the replies..

We might as well give it a try.. She is currently in second year college, that means she would be enrolled as junior next year by the time she would come over if and only if she would be granted a visa. She could prove that my family could support her perhaps by showing some assets of my parents in the Philippines.. My father could support her trip if that's the evidence they need..

I am keeping my fingers cross..

Hey just wanted to assist. If she is a student, better get a letter from the school that she is on a vacation and will return to continue her studies. Then show money from her parents or siblings to finance her stay in the US. Check the link for more info. http://bit.ly/bnLA1U
