Tourist Visa for Daughter in Colombia

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My wife's Daughter who lives in Colombia wants to apply for a tourist visa to come visit her mom here in the US.

I have heard how impossible this task is but still want to try everything I can.

Her Daughter is 24 years old, single, graduated with a 4 year degree in Finance and has a good professional job.

My plan was to send a letter documenting who I am and that I would be responsible for her visit to the US. I would also document that we plan to officially ask for her once her mother becomes a citizen. I was also planning on contacting my Senator for suggestions or documentation that would help her obtain a tourist visa. I ask if anyone has any suggestions to please reply with their thoughts. Thank you :help:

You might want to word your letter very carefully. Promising to support her ("be responsible for her"?) while she is in the US would actually make her appear to be more of an illegal immigration risk. Your goal with any letter you send is to give the clearest possible impression that there is NO possibility, or even vague inclination, for her to want to stay in the US for more than a short period of time.


DON'T PANIC

MR Twister -

if I was in yer shoes,

I'd toss out that plan, in toto.

Instead, suggest different plan, of

proving up strong ties to Columbia.

You must bear in mind, that the Immigration Officer, handling her interview, on interview day,

is required, via regulation, to assume that anyone interviewing for a Tourist Visa, has immigrant Intent.

So, going by that regulation, that Immigration Officer will review, instead, her copious pile of evidence that shows her strong ties to Columbia.

If the evidence pile is sufficient, then she'll be granted the Tourist Visa.

If it's not sufficient, she'll be denied.

then reformulate yer plan.

Good Luck !

I agree. Don't even hint at any (future) immigrant intent.

The consulate's decision will be based solely on their belief that she will not try to remain in the U.S. The best way she can demonstrate this is by having a good job, owning/leasing property and having substantial financial ties to Colombia. A letter from her employer stating that she is due to return on a certain date will carry far more weight than anything you could write.

I would avoid mentioning any future immigration plans,or focus in the trip to visit her family, (unless her family is US Citizen).

What I did to get my Visitor visa, I registered in a cheap seminar or course related to my proffesion. (main reason for my application). Second I support all my ties to Colombia with letter of employment, Savings statements, Title of my car, and property, etc.

The officer focused in the seminar, and asked proffesional questions, at the end I was approved.
