Applying B1 (business visit) during CR1 process.

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can attempt to get B1 visa hurt my CR1 process? My company is real and it really requires

somebody travel to USA with business purpose. Invitation letter in this case would be from company

and nohow mention my husband in USA and sure I would mention him and my process in the form for B1.

does B1 application (denial or even approval) raise red flag for CR1 process? These business trips bring good money

and chance to see my love one without extra expenses. But I am scared to death that it can make our CR1 process

even more painful...

No downside basically if you do not get it.

I would go for it as your Employer will pick up all the costs.

Has your company sponsored others in the past for a B-1? If not it could look a little suspicious that all of a sudden you would need a B-1 visa for someone. However, I don't see any drawback to asking for one, especially since you will be mentioning that a CR-1 petition has been filed. Good luck.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Yes, it sponsored. Actually I used to have B1 visas from the same company before.

Thanks for all! Things moved fast last days and now

the other question, can somebody apply for B1 after NOA2, I mean during NVC and waiting CR1 interview? Is it ok by law to have two applications for immigration and non-immigration visas at the same time?

there is nothing unlawful about it. The worst that can happen is to deny your Non-IV application because of your immigration intent.

Personally I would not risk it post-NOA2. Depending on the embassy you are looking at around 4 months to having your CR-1 (1 month NVC, 2-3 months for interview). Not sure how long the other visa would take but 4 months is a drop in the bucket considering the waiting you have already endured. Things tend to move fast once you hit NVC. Good luck.

wherever you may roam.

with joy that long endures.
