Hi,

I am counting down days to becoming a US citizen. I would like to file for GC for my parents soonafter. They have 10 year tourist visa and have visited US a few times before. I would really like them to be here in the US for their biometrics and interview since I can assist them with the process, rather than making them figure things out back in India.

Will it be wise to apply for GC while they are still in India, but bring them over to US a few months later on their tourist visa?

Please correct me if I'm wrong anybody, but I don't think it will be possible for them to come on the tourist visa after you filed for their GC. Tourist visa is a non-immigrant visa, therefore they won't be able to come in with the intention to immigrate.

It is visa fraud for them to use their tourist visa with the intent to immigrate, don't do it.

You can help them with their papers and send them via email to them.

Your parents can apply of adjustment of status when they get here in the US thats one of the options.

You can file i130 for them for immigration purposes.

They can come to US for a visit BUT has to go back in time (mostly it is 6 months).

At the visa interview, they will ask because they have visitor visa "did you stay more than 6 months", if YES, you go figure

If NO, visa approved

He can file I-130 , before his parents arrive in US on tourist visa . Then they visit US and stay upto 6 months . They go back to their country . Later when their I-130 is approved , the process can be followed further for the GC . i think , this will be the best option within rules .

Other senior members may please comment / confirm .

Thanks
