Travel to US while CR1 is filed and I’m from India

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All, we are preparing documents for CR1. We got married last month after dating for almost two years. I met my husband in the US while I was working there  but unfortunately I had to travel back to India cause my work visa(extension) was denied due to some paperwork issue. My employer applied one more time and it got denied again(same reason). I wanted to ask what are the chances of me getting a tourist visa to visit my husband. He comes to visit me whenever possible but due to his work, he cannot stay here for more than 10 days and that sucks. So now we have decided to try our luck on a tourist visa so that I can travel and spend atleast 2-3 weeks with him( I have the leverage to take that many days off once in a while). I’m worried about getting the visa since I have two previous denials. I would really appreciate your advice.

2 previous denials, denied work visa and married to the USC.

Yeah, I'd say that your chances are less than average.

Is there any document that can be shown to prove that I will be back. I can get a letter from my employer and show my ties to home country. I mean other than those two denials, there’s nothing which can make the case weak. I have a good job, I have a rented house with one year lease, I did not overstay when I was in US, no criminal record. I just want to visit my husband and his family. Won’t they understand that?

Your ties to your country are very weak.  A house rental lease and a job can be abandoned at any time.  Being married to a US citizen works against you.  You've been working in the USA for a couple years also works against you.   You have stronger ties to the USA than your home country.  You can try to get a tourist visa.  You have nothing to lose but the fee.

A denied tourist visa will not impact your CR1.

Your chances for a tourist visa are extremely low.

 

Two prior denials.

USC husband.

Intent to immigrate by filing I-130.

 

What's to stop you from adjusting status while on your visit?

 

Look at it from the CO's point of view.  You want understanding because you have a good job and a lease.  Both of which you will give up because you intend to immigrate to the US to be with your husband.  

 

It's unlikely that you can overcome immigrant intent.

Makes sense. We will have to meet elsewhere. It’s really frustrating not to be able to see your husband for so long. I hope my CR1 visa process goes smoothly. I’m worried about that as well cause of my denials.

The CR-1 is an immigrant visa.  Work visa related denials are irrelevant......
