I was wondering how if at all it would be possible for my wifes sister could come to visit and if so how long can she stay.

Thanks in advance


She can try going to the US Embassy to get a tourist visa to see if they approve her. She will need to bring as much evidence as she can to prove that she has strong ties to Colombia and that she does not plan to stay living in the US. The only thing you can help her with is by sending her a letter of invitation but the CO may not even ask to see it.
