Chinese Parents to Visit USA

9 posts in this topic

My Chinese wife arrived on CR1 visa and has her permanent resident card. We are expecting and the due date is Oct 18, 2012. We want our Chinese parents to visit and stay for several months to enjoy their grandchild. Both are retired from their company and they can prove they have two homes, monthly retirement income, money in the bank and lots of family. They do not wish to stay in America. Will they have trouble getting visas? Has anyone recently followed this process? Please help.

We appreciate your help!!

They can apply and find out, showing strong ties to home. Not much you can do to influence the process.

Assuming that your wife is their only child they have a very strong tie to the US. That is the likely hurdle.

Thanks for the quick reply! Yep, wife is their only child. What are the going odds given our situation? I know they will not be comfortable in US and will want to go back quickly, but they will be a big help when the baby is born.

Randy,

Like Anh map said the fact that their only child (and now only grand child) are in the US they now have strong ties to the US. I have read many accounts here on VJ where parents were denied so I would not say it's a sure thing, at all. You may even suggest that they visit at separate times, leaving the other spouse as a strong tie to returning at the end of the visit.

Also I would be careful about suggesting the either of them are coming to "help" with the new baby. that can imply that they are in the US to work and you can't do that on a tourist visa. The purpose of visit should be "to visit family".

Odds

Zero if the do not apply.

Greater than above if they do.

Odds are not very good if your wife is their only child. My wife's mother was denied, they only ask a few questions and say no. The didn't look at any documents or anything. Main this was my wife was her mom's only child and lives here. Also I read many places if you say it is to see baby when it is born they will assume her parents are going to babysit and work illegally. Better not to mention baby

I have heard several denial cases that the parents mentioned they would like to be the babysitters during their interviews. Since babysitting costs a lot in the states, Uncle Sam wants to preserve such jobs for the Americans. So just be careful.


7/31/2004 sent I-129F package to Vermont

8/3/2004 NOA1

8/23/2004 ONLINE APPROVED!!!!

8/24/2004 VSC sent package to NVC

10/5/2004 NVC told me case has been forwarded via email

10/26/2004 Received package 3

11/8/2004 sent back pk 3

Things went beyond expectations. K1 was granted in 2005, but relationship failed.

===============================

After 5 years....
