Hello, people!!

I do have a question for you.

I am married man and My wife and I both were born in Japan, and both American citizen now.

My wife had parents and young sister in Japan, but parents both died in a year because of cancer. And she has no family members/relatives in Japan anymore......

We are thinking to bring a sister from Japan as a immigrants, so we need some suggestions from you.

Can She lives in the states once we have applied I-130? or should we get a visa first, and then to apply I-130? She wants to study an English so we prefer to have a student visa.

We own the house, and both have a job, and have good savings in a bank. Wife's sister also have good savings in a bank in Japan. Does immigration counts any those extra points(money)? She is 37years old.

Thank you very much for your help!

Sha can come on any non-immigrant visa if she qualifies for it (like student visa - bit hard for 37 year old though). She can't come to US just because you file I-130 - she will have to wait for her priority date to become current, and right now wait for sibling of US citizen is approximately 12 years.
