SIL applying for Tourist Visa but works/lives in another country

Background Info: Sister in law works/lives in Trinidad in a work program, and travels back and forth to Jamaica during her breaks. She primarily has been living in Trinidad for the past three years. She previously had a B1/B2 I believe was for a 5 year approval. She is reapplying for a B1/B2, but when we discussed strong ties to return back to JA. I told her to obtain an employment letter, proof of her participating in the work program and how she has to be a resident of JA to participate, bank info, etc... She wants me to send her a letter to help with her approval (she had one previously from another relative that lives here)

I do not believe that a letter from me or any kind of invitation for the holidays will make a difference in proving ties to return. Are there any suggestions of providing proof other than what I told her already, she technically does not and has not lived in JA for the past three years. What evidence can she provide???

Thanks!!

Does not have to be ties to Jamaica.

HI

Ditto, if she is legally working and living in Trinidad, she will have her interview there and show strong ties to Trinidad, not to Jamaica

and you are correct, a letter from you has no bearing

Concur with aleful, Its only on her to convince that CO

she will return to her residence, if legally in TT show

strong ties there, acct. lease contract ,job letter & other

ties. without ties it may show she is willing to take a job

wherever if the opportunity arises (in their minds, not saying

its so)
