Hi I am the spouse of a permanent resident and I've recently been approved for the F2A visa, I'm waiting on the welcome letter. My question is can i visit my husband in the USA?

If you've "been approved for the F2A visa", then no - you would use the immigrant visa to enter as a permanent resident.

 

I'm assuming you meant your I-130 petition was approved...not a visa. If so, then you can visit (not stay) just fine with a valid visa.

Thank you for responding. I meant the I130 petition was approved 2 days ago. So was wondering if it ok to visit for our anniversary in October.

~~hijack post split off to it's own thread. Please do not post questions for your own case in other members threads. Your post along with another had completely derail the thread  mixing two hijacked posts and replies. This can cause major confusion to the thread and to the original question.~~

 

One post removed as it quoted two different hijackers and could not be split.

Sorry i meant the I 130 petition was approved, waiting for it to arrive at the NVC. I have a B2 visitor visa and would like to visit my husband for our anniversary in October. 

Certainly if you have a B2 visa you may visit, but be aware it does not guarantee entry. In your situation I would be sure to take as much as evidence as possible that you’d be returning home after the trip (return ticket, employment letter, confirmation of rental lease, etc).
