Help pls!!! 

 

I'm trying to help my sister from the philippines to get a tourist visa(B2) while she is waiting for her petition to get approve. She is under the category of F2B,(my mom petition her, my mom is a greencard holder). I just checked it's another 9 years of waiting. Her PD is March 2017, Visa bulletin says they are currently working on 2008 cases. She is 23 years old, has a job. I wanted to cover all her expenses for the Visa and while she is in the US. I am a US citizen. I live in Las Vegas. What is the best way to do? Does she have a better chance to get a approve for tourist visa???

 I appreciate u guys help.

There is nothing you can do to “help” her get a tourist visa. The only thing you can do to “help” is help her with the forms if her computer skills or literacy skills are lacking. No letters, promises, pictures, phone calls, emails from you to anyone will make any difference. The case will be decided on her merits alone. 

 

It’s nice of you to offer to pay for things for your sister but this may hinder her case more than you realize.

Best to let her pay her own way.

Okay. I was just hoping if I can sponsor her to get a tourist Visa. Seems like I'm just going to waste my time. So sad tho, I really wanna spend time with my sister.  If I ever I tried , I might just wasting money :(

 

Thank you so much for your opinion!

There is no such thing as sponsorship for a tourist visa.

Yes, I saw it online , I will have to fill out a form 134 I believe, it's a affidavit of support .

She fills out her DS-160. You can send her an I-134 to take to the interview.  I doubt the CO will ask for it. 

 

She needs to support herself and show significant ties to the Philippines.

Perhaps when she has saved up for the trip, apply then.

That is NOT an US government website.  

 

The CO is not required or interested in anything you provide.
