Getting the future MIL to the states

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee is a little concerned about her mother not being able to get a tourist visa to the US in the future. My fiancee has no other family members except her mom who is in her 70's. She is retired and does own her apartment but really has no other assests to prove she would return from a tourist visit in the future. She has stated she has no desires to immigrate to the US because of her age but would like to visit once my fiancee is here and settled some. She does have a lot of European travel history in her passport and never overstayed any other visas. Question..what are the odds she would be allowed a tourist visa to the US prior to her daughters US citizenship? Thanks in advance....Gary

Older women have generally had an easier time of it than younger women. However the best thing for her to do is apply for a Shengen visa and make a short visit to an EU country. Poland works. Shengen visas are relative more easy to get and prove that one has traveled outside the country and returned. Do this before applying for a US tourist visa.

I would guess she will easily get a visa to visit! My MIL got a visa on the first try. She had never traveled anywhere outside Russia except one trip to Egypt. She was single and 60 years old. They have seemed to be easing the issuing of visas since then. Just stress that she has connections to home and only wants to visit here! :thumbs:

Older women do seem to have it a bit easier. Our son's girlfriend (age 21) was flatly denied a tourist visa last year. She got a Shengen visa this summer, went to Germany for a few days and this fall was issued a Tourist visa for the USA. The only question they ever asked at the interview was "Have you traveled outside Russia?" (Ukraine does not count) the first time she answered "no", the second time "yes". At the time of her denial she had evidence of a fully paid scholarship to one of Russia's top universities which we felt would be pretty much a slam dunk. They never even looked at it.

However, James, I have heard of quite a few fiancee's mother's easily getting visas, so that does seem to make a difference.

Thanks all. I think I will email the US Embassy in Minsk and see if they respond with any suggestions. I will probably just get a computer generated response about immigration and visas but who knows.
