Hello Everyone,


Your help is greatly appreciated. My wife currently works in Beijing. She has had 10 yrs B1 Visa before we married in U.S. in 2016. Now she plans to retire in 2 yrs. We are thinking maybe it's time to start I-130, CR1, and so on. But we are not so sure what is going to happen to her current B1 Visa.

1. Can she still use her current B1 travel to/from U.S.?

2. If not, what other traveling document does she need to apply during the period while she would be waiting for her  CR1 visa?

3. What any other possible options might be available for her to be able to travel to/from U.S. while she would be waiting for her  CR1 visa?


Thanks a lot in advance

If she has Business needs absolutely, if she wants to travel as a Tourist she needs a B2.

Yes. Also, is it a B-1/B-2? Or just B-1? https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/tourism-visit/visitor.html
