Visitor visa application for someone who has applied for US immigration

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My mother has applied for her US immigration - F4 (via her brother who is a passport holder in the US). Now, I intend to apply for her US visit visa so that she can pay a visit to her brother. Do you think that's a good idea? What are the chances of her visa getting accepted? Please help.

you don't apply for her, she applies on her own and must show strong ties to her country

having family in the US is a downside, since she can come and stay in the country, she has you here plus her brother

but she'll never know unless she tries

Aleful is correct. She can try, and even if denied it will not have negative consequences on her sibling immigration visa petition, unless she lies. But her chances not not the best, unless she has strong ties to home, such as minor kids staying back, a good job etc.
