Common topic.

Answer difficult at best, consulates treat tourist visa applicants as if they have immigrations intent. Will need solid evidence that there is not immigrations intent.

Keep in mind the primary function of a K-1 tends to be for cases where it is difficult or impossible to marry overseas, if wishing to have family from overseas attend a wedding, and they are dealing with a high visa fraud country, then plan on not having family from there come here, and either marry there, or have an engagement party over there before using K-1, or have a wedding party over there after getting married, perhaps on a first visit after getting green-card or AP document.

Hard to get but definitely try. See no one here can say yes.. it's a tourist visa.. and approvals / denials are not consistent.

** even with solid proof. **

You do no try, all down to your mother.

It doesn't hurt to have her apply. From what I have seen, moms seem to have better luck than most in getting the tourist visa from Ghana. Make sure she has plenty of evidence to show strong ties like others have said.

Good luck :)

I agree pretty much with what everyone else said. Here is the official info for B2 visa applications: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/types_1262.html

I think in Ghana it is pretty difficult to prove ties to the country and to produce hardcore evidence that the person will definately not stay in the U.S. once the visit is over. However, it doesnt hurt to try. The only "risk" is that it will cost you about $400-$500 (don't qoute me on the exact cost) to apply and get all the required documents. Good Luck! I know every bride wants to have their mother by their side on that special day.

.....or that should have been considered and arrange the wedding in the home country so the mom could attend or have it in the USA knowing it's highly unlikely she would be allowed the visit and the show must go on..

unfortunately it's not a win-win situation
