Living Abroad and Visiting Home

Hey guys,

I married a woman from Pakistan. We both have a heart to serve God. We will be running a school, supporting indentured slaves, and providing various life improvements to villages.

I want to be able to work in Pakistan with my wife 80% of the year and 20% in the USA with my wife. Please advise me what the visa process is for my wife to enter the USA regularly when we come back to see our family and friends.

Thanks

B2 is for visitors.

Expanding on Boiler's comments above... B2 is a tourist visa. It is for visitors typically granted for 10 year multi-entry and often at the POE she would be given 6 month stay. The challenge is to get said visa she will have to prove strong ties to her home country which could be challenging. To clarify, the fact that she is your wife apparently does not give her a better chance of being granted said visa and may actually give her less of a chance which is twisted in a way. God bless you for your plans in Pakistan. However, please check immigration requirements in Pakistan as well to assure that you have an appropriate visa that lets you live in that country. For clarity a spousal visa (CR-1) would normally apply in this situation but two things make that not an option for you. First is that you the USC would have to prove domicile in the US to sponsor your wife which would be hard (impossible?) to do if you are living outside the country 80% of the time. Even if she was approved and admitted on a spousal visa then she would get her green card but if she doesn't live in the USA then she would have considered to have abandoned her GC putting you right back to the tourist visa spot.

Visitors do not need sponsors.
