Default Re-entry under B2 (Tourist visa)

Hello everyone,

My sister came to USA in May 2006 and she just recently flew back to her home country (early April 2007). She extended her stay in the US by submitting I-539 couple of weeks before her period of stay ends (6 months after arrival) and was approved by the USCIS for another 6 months (until May 2007). She is planning to come to the USA again this summer under B2 visa.

Here is my question:
Does any of you know if there is any regulation that prevents individual to stay out of the USA for certain period amount of time before he/she could come back under the same visa?

Note: she was not deported or anything. Her stay in the US was completely legal meaning she did not work illegally during her stay in the US. Just purely vacation.

Please advise,

Will T.

yes...She can come back anytime as long as her B2 visa is valid. they will give her new I-94 card at the port of entry. Extension of stay is not vlaid any more since she left the country. extension of stay valid only as long as she stay in States and only need if she like to stay after the I-94 card `s date.

In short , she is more than welcome to States as long as her B2 visa is valid.

Hope this will help.

Default Visitor Visa Sponsorship

Guys,
Wanted to find out if I can sponsor my brother's wife and daughter?
I am not sure whether sponsorship is only for "blood relations"?

Thanks

Practically you can sponsor anyone. If you fill affidavit of support,
1. you are liable for their financial burden, if occurs, on United States
2. Also liable to his/her overstay in the country.

First one, you can avoid by stating in affidavit of support that you are limiting your liability to $2000. Select "Speicific support" and mention: "I will provide full lodging and boarding and help upto $2000 as lumpsum tourism and other expenses".

Second one, you dont have choice - you are bound.

Default Sponsoring Parents when H1 is expiring in soon.

My current H1 is expiring in July 2007 and due for renewal.
I want to sponsor my parents now(in May 2007 before applying for renewal of my H1) - Will this be a problem?

Should I sponsor them after I get my H1 renewed in July or August 2007?

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

Default All Visitor visa related posts here

Hi Folks,

I wud like to share with u the news that my parents got their visitor visa from Mumbai.It was pretty easy.

Questions were :
1. who r u visiting
2. R u retired, where were u working before
3. what does ur son-in-law do
4. where is he working
5. where do they leave
6. how many kids do u have

They waited outside in line for 2hrs but after they went in, they were called in 2minutes. They were told their visa was granted.

Good luck to u all. Thanks to this forum.

Default If son & daughter are in US??

I wanted to post a question along the same lines. I'm planning to get a visitor Visa processed for my mom. She lives with my brother in India. My brother is the only son she has and my father passed away a few years ago. I have another sister who lives in India.

My brother might be coming her on B1 in the near future. will it be a problem to get Visitor visa for her if my brother also comes here?

Hi

I'm not sure whether that's a problem. Different people have different experiences. I have a friend who is here & her sister is also here & no other siblings in India but her parents got a visa, similarly another friend who is the only son, still his parents got the visa. So u just have to try ur luck. B1 is anyway only a business visa, so that should n't be a problem. Why don't u get ur mother's visa before ur brother applies. She does n't have to travel immediately. Hope this helps

Hi

Your status will not affect them. Even my visa was expiring in Apr'07 & parents applied in april. I just sent the receipt for the renewal application that I filed. You can apply for ur parents, they will possibly get a date in a month's time. If u receive ur renewal receipt by that time, send a copy to them. Else get a letter from ur lawyer/employer saying ur extension has been filed.
