Hi mga kababayan and friends here in VJ, i'm planning to invite my sister here in u.s.a to visit me and my parents here.

its been 9 yrs since i left and never got a chance to return back to philippines, so i decided to petition my parents and finally

both parents are already here since 2013 and i still not return back to PI now i have new born baby and a lil harder for me to travel and visit. so

our plan is to invite sister or she apply for visitor visa.. can somebody help me what's the process or step by step of a visitor visa..

do she need to send affidavit of support with the DS I-160, what about the invitation does she need to send that as well or just show it during


any adivce is appreciated thank you!

There is no invitation or sponsorship for a tourist visa. She would apply based on her own ability to make the trip and reasons to return home. Good luck.
