Good evening!

 

I just wanna ask you guys if its possible to have my parents from Philippines apply for a tourist visa while waiting for the petition

 

We sent the i824 last September and we havent got any response yet. 

 

and is it possible to finish the green card process here in the U.S with a tourist visa?

 

 

They are coming here to help us out on taking care of my daughters

 

thanks!

They can apply but with an immigrant petition in process highly unlikely they’ll be approved. And no, you can’t get a tourist visa so you can complete green card processing in the US.

Hi! My husband applied for my spousal visa (2011) and during my interview at the US Embassy in the Philippines, I asked if I can apply for a tourist visa while waiting for the spousal visa. The officer said that we just have to wait for the visa that we applied for already. So I think that's similar with your case. But it doesnt hurt to ask USCIS. Best Wishes.
