HI..

I am a greencard holder and we wanted to process visitor visa for my parents.

I have changed my surname to that of my husbands surname in US, in Greencard, drivers licence etc.

But I have not yet changed in my Indian passport.

Is it okay to keep the maiden surname in Indian passport while processing the visitor visa for my parents?

Or I need to change it to married surname before proceeding further?

I am not working in US and my husband has to sponsor my parents.. will this be a problem?

Please share your thoughts on this.

Thanks..

One does not 'sponsor' a tourist visa for someone else...no one can be forced to be financially liable for somebody showing up as a tourist in the US; your passport and name in it have no relevance for a parent seeking a toursit visa. They qualify 101% on their own, without 'assistance' or 'sponsorship' or 'guarantees' by any other individual. They have to convince the VO that (a) they will leave the US after an appropriate visit and (b) not engage in unlawful employment while in the US....neither you nor your husband can control their actions or decisions while they are in the US..the burden of overcoming immigrant intent is the responsibility of the applicant and no one else.

Yeah what He said ↑. You can't process any type of application/petition for someone wanting entry into the US. The most you can do is aide in completing the necessary forms. Your financial standing or work situation has absolutely no bearing on your parents being approved/denied a visa. Your parents are the ones (unless under 6 or over 79) who will be interviewed so the onus is 100% on them to convince the consulate officer that they will abide by the strict guidelines that accompanies approval of a visitors visa.

It doesn't matter what your name is. It doesn't matter if you are working. Nothing about you matters.

A person must apply on his/her own for a visitor visa. The person must show strong ties to his/her home country to overcome the presumption of illegal immigration. What are the reasons for the visitor to return home?

The visitor visa process is about your mother, not you. She apply on her own. You do nothing.

Noah and Aaron are right.

Your parents will get the visa on their own. You have absolutely nothing to do with their visa application.

No sponsporship, no petition, no nothing from your end. Just an application from them and an interview.
