6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I met the most amazing woman while working Japan, we've been seeing each other for a few months and have decided that we want to see more of each other by my time in Japan is ending. She is currently on a work visa from Tunisia, is it possible for me to submit for her a tourist visa to the US?

No....she has to apply for a tourist visa. You can send a letter of invitation and statements that she will be visiting for a certain period and then WILL return back. Other than that you have no involvement or affect on the decision.

Good luck with the tourist visa, it is very difficult for Tunisians wanting to visit the U.S. to obtain one. :unsure:

Yes I stating to learn that. Today I wanted her to visit me on an american military base, she came, but wasn't allow to enter because Tunisia was on the "no access" list. This may be a lot hard than expected.

There is basically nothing you can do as far as the visa application goes. Anyone wishing to obtain a tourist visa has to apply on their own. The most you could do is provide her a letter of invitation, but it's neither required nor particularly helpful to be honest.

In order to get a tourist visa, the applicant must satisfy the interviewing visa officer that he/she intends to visit the US for tourism purposes only, that he/she will not accept any unauthorized work, and that he/she has every intention of leaving the US within 6 months.

At the interview, it is always the applicant's burden of proof to convince the visa officer that he/she is a genuine tourist/visitor. There's no set answer to what's required or expected.. It varies from person to person, country to country. Some consulates may ask 2 simple questions, some may spend 15 minutes asking questions and looking over papers. Some things that could help her would be any strong ties she can prove to Tunisia and/or Japan that would compel most people to return.. This can be anything from a stable job/career, ongoing higher education, strong family ties, property ownership such as real estate or a car etc. Basically anything you can think of that would prove intent to return.
