American wants Chinese girlfriend to visit

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I met my girlfriend in 2010, when I was studying abroad at Chongqing University. I was there for a year studying Chinese and came back to the US when I was finished. Through perseverance we have been together over two years now and our relationship is wonderful. When I came back to the United States, I began studying for my M.Ed. in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). During my summer break in 2012, I went back to Chongqing and visited my girlfriend for two months and things are still going great.

This May I will be graduating from college, and we want my girlfriend to come for my graduation ceremony and to see my home and parents.

The current plan is for her to come for two weeks and then go home. Once I've finalized everything in the U.S., I plan on returning to China to live for an extended period of time as an English teacher.

She has never left China before and is quite nervous. We plan on telling them the truth: that she is going to see her boyfriend for his graduation. We have an official letter of invitation from my university. She has a university degree in construction management and got new job last year working for the government electrical company (a good job in China). She has her hukou showing her parents live in China, she recently bought a car and owns an apartment. She also plans on bringing photos of us together, a copy of our certificates from Chongqing University, and a copy of my passport and previous visas.

What else should we do/bring/say/not say?

How likely is it that she will be able to get a visa?

Alternatively, she has a Chinese female friend studying in America a few states from me and could say that she will be visiting them instead. We've heard that the "boyfriend" word is a red flag but we also don't want to lie.

Thank you all so much for your help. Regardless of what happens, I promise to post the results here to help others in the future.

Read that, as she'll need to prepare her evidence.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

She should be honest about her intention, if she is coming to see BF, be honest about it.

Personally in my opinion she does not need copy of yours and her degree from Chinese school, she can tell the CO during interview how you guys met if asked.

Also she does not need copy of your passport nor your visa, most CO would not ask for such things these are personal things to you.

I think her having a good job, car payments etc. + your invitation to graduation ceremony should be good.

Unfortunately in general its difficult for young single female from China to get visa, thanks to all the previous applicants who have abused their visa.
