Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am a US citizen and i want to bring my bother here. So I have a few questions.

1- If I put him on waiting list will he be able to come visit while waiting? 

2- Does he apply for tourist visa and once he gets here put him on the waiting list, and if we go this route will he be able to get a work visa while waiting? 

Thanks in advance

He can visit during the very long wait, assuming he is granted a tourist visa.

 

He won’t get a work permit or anything more than a tourist visa during the wait. He can apply for other visas, if he is eligible, during the wait (student visa, etc).

He cannot stay or work in the US while being on some "waiting list". If he qualifies for work visa he can try but has nothing to do with siblings visa petition.
