Grad school and potential immigration

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced having to do grad school in the US on a non-immigrant visa but also had a pending immigrant petition filed on their behalf?

 

Was the NIV detrimental to your IV application? 

 

The context is for my sister who is looking to do grad school in the US but is not sure if she wants to permanently live here. So, no, we haven’t filed a family-based immigration petition but she’s looking at grad schools.


“The fact that we are here and that I speak these words is an attempt to break that silence and bridge some
of those differences between us, for it is not difference which immobilizes us, but silence.
And there are so many silences to be broken.”

No, a NIV cannot be detrimental to an IV application. It can be the other way around though (IV application can be detrimental to NIV application) since a IV application indicates you want to stay in the USA, while you have to convince a CO that you DON'T want to remain in the US when applying for a NIV.

 

 In other words: NIV application does not hurt nor help a IV application. IV application can hurt NIV application.
