Turist Visa for my brother

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Costa Rica

I'm in the middle of a long K-1 Visa Process, we are almost ready to go to the interview. But we already paid a venue for our wedding and we have invited my brother and my aunt, just 2 people from my family. My brother is not married but he is living with the mother of his son, they've been living together for 2 years. I want him to go to my wedding, he doesn't have a lot of money but I can afford his ticket to go to the wedding and my fiance and I already paid the wedding and the hotel where we all are going to celebrate ^_^

My question is, do you think my brother has the chance to get the turist visa to go to my wedding??

He traveled to California last year, he was sent to get a training. He got the visa for 1 month. he would be for my wedding and just for 4 days or so since he has to work.

I would like to know your opinion VJ's family.

Hugs from Costa Rica

His ability to get a tourist visa will depend on his ties to Costa Rica, not his reasons to travel to the US. Family in the US and a limited amount of money will work against him, what does he have in terms of ties?

Good luck

We don't have family living in US, I'm not moving until August and my wedding is on September. He has a son (and his entire family depends on him), he has an stable job. He went to California for 3 weeks to get a training and he didn't have any problem to get the Visa. But it wasn't a tourist VISA, since he got that training.

I'm not officially living there, but he is going to stay with my aunt at my fiance's with me. but as I said just for the wedding.

Let us know how it goes.
