Parents visiting LPR

Hi all,

Until recently, I was an F1 student for some years. My parents visited me in the US each year, no problem at all. They want to do the same this year; the only difference is that now I am a LPR (through marriage). Will that pose any problem for them to come? Their tourist visas are still valid, they don't have to renew them (and they have absolutely no intent of staying whatsoever, it's just the standard yearly visit). Should they bring evidence of ties to the home country (a country with no particular history of visa fraud btw) to the POE, or that is pointless?

Thank you very much.

They have used the tourist visa before and not abused it. It is still valid, but it is always better to have something and not need it rather than need it and not have it. I would have them bring evidence of ties to their home county and have it easy to get to within their carry-on luggage, but do not get it out until asked for it. My bet is that it will be a non-issue, but better safe than sorry.

Your change of status is irrelevant.
