B1/B2 Multiple entry visa

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My mother has a B1 / B2 multiple entry visa valid until 2026. She is arriving in the US on Friday - travelling by herself for the first time internationally and I just wanted to make sure that she has everything she needs. Other than her passport with her visa, she will have all of our contact information and address as well as her itinerary showing her return dates. Is there anything else that she may need, like a letter from me stating she will be here visiting etc or a letter from her employer stating she will be on vacation and returning to work on  1 May 2019? 


I just want to give her some information of what to expect when she arrives.

She has the visa so she has done the hard part.


No harm in being prepared though. I took all the documents that I took to the interview (letter from employer saying when I am due back, payslips, contract) the first time I travelled on my B2. Was I ever asked for any of them, during the interview or at the POE? No.


I didn't bother taking them for subsequent visits (I travelled to the US every 6-8 weeks), never had any problems what so ever.

A letter from you will not do anything to demonstrate her reason to leave the US on time. Skip that. The rest is fine.

She'll have the return ticket, so that's good. She just needs to he honest and confident about her vacation plans and return if asked by CBP.
