Hello everyone, I am a new member here, US resident and born here. I am married to a Filipina whom I met here in the US over 10 years ago and is now also a US citizen.

I am wondering if anyone here has any experience with a situation like mine or can comment.

My wife is now disabled and is under docs certification to require 24-7 custodial care. I am wanting to hire her sister in the PI to be a caregiver, move here and live with us to be her companion so I can work and so forth. How hard is it to hire the non resident sister from the PI to come here to work if she has a job waiting?

Frank

virtually impossible....employment based immigrant visas require that any qualified American be hired first..and the wait time alone is years.

Extremely difficult. Reason being that there are lots of caregivers available here in the US.

Thanks for all the feedback.:-( Anyone know if there is such a thing as hardship request? I read somewhere that you can send the family member an invitation to come due to the sick family member needing help? Which they take to their embassy to get a travel visa?

To hire a foreign worker there must be no qualified US resident for the job , it doesn't matter that your sister wants her sister to care for her there are many qualified home health workers in the US. To petition her sister it is a 23 year process.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Again, not likely. Especially from PI where the wait for family based visas is longer than the norm.

Sorry to know that your wife is having health challenges.

No such thing....if somebody is sick and needs care, one must hire a caregive from within the US. There is no such thing as a 'hardship visa' or 'humanitarian' visa....and people cannot work as tourists either....remember, by and large the VOs (and our laws) do not care why someone wants to GO to the US....they want to be convinced about the reasons why the person would LEAVE the US and NOT WORK without permission...

I'm sorry about your wife's situation, but there's no such thing as a caregiver visa. Only tourist visa and she can't work on a tourist visa.

US immigration laws are in place in part to protect American workers, so virtually the only way to get a long term or permanent work visa is by having a specialized skill which is in short supply in the US.
