B Visa

From a B-2 visa to a green card

I have a pen pal that is a citizen of Honduras. He would like to come to the US to visit me and our beautiful country. My question is this: if he obtains a 6 months B-2 visitors visa, then maybe half way through, he thinks he would like to move to the US and work here, could he apply for a green card during his 6 month stay. He has no family here in the US, just me, his friend.

That does not sound possible. Green cards to USA are granted based upon very limited basis. But, you should have your friend speak with a lawyer to see what options may exist.

Marrying B1/B2 girlfriend

My girlfriend and I decided to get married. She is on a B1/B2 visa, we didn't know it is some kind of offense, how to deal with this? I don't want her to be deported. Where do we start?

For all people on B visa or illegal in USA who are marrying a US citizen, I strongly advise at least one consultation with a lawyer to make sure you will not run into trouble.

Re-enter US on tourist visa

My mother has valid 10 year tourist visa. However, on tourist visa, she can stay upto 6 months in US. I wanted to know that after 6 months, can she fly to Canada for a month to stay with her sister and then return to US after a month. What's the min time limit she has to be out of US in order to re-enter US? I'm having a small child and would like her to stay with me as much as possible.

It is unlikely she will receive another six months after visiting Canada. The rule of thumb is that she must spend more time outside USA than inside.

B1 visa

I am supposed to apply for my business visa today for USA. I am traveling for pure business, meeting my existing suppliers and doing further business development and also inspect a loading on existing contract. I will be providing relevant business details on my visa form. The small query that i have is, that my real sister is based in usa, and her husband holds a green card.the visa form asks for mentioning of any blood relation/relative settled in usa, so would mentioning their details on my visa form create some kind of hindrance in my getting the business visa?

We have no choice. You have to tell the truth. I do not believe that by itself would be a problem.

B visa for fiance

I am a Filipina and I have my fiance in the US but he is still waiting for his greencard. We are really looking forward to be together soon. Which is more easier to get a visitor's visa or a fiance visa? But he is not a US citizen yet, he is still waiting for his greencard. Please tell us what would be the best for us to do in order for us to be together soon?

Fiance visa option is available for citizens only. B visa is always a toss of a coin. No-one can predict how it will go. But chances of getting B visa for the fiance of a US immigrant are very low.

How to apply for visitors visa?

My mother in law would like to visit me and her grand daughter and i would like to get her a visitor visa what do i need to get that and how do i get one?

She needs to contact the US consulate closest to where she lives. Normally, they will be able to tell her what she needs to bring and what the procedure is. This information should also be available on consular web site. Most consulates also respond to e-mail enquiries.

B1/B2 Multiple Entry Visa

I have a urgent question, and I would super appreciate any advice you could give me. I have a B1/B2 Multiple Entry Visa till 2019. I went to the United States on Feb 25, 2009 and came back to the Philippines August 21, 2009. While in the States I was granted an extension to stay in the U.S. till Feb 2010, but I still decided to come home to the Philippines. Now, I would like to go back to the U.S. on November 8, 2009 to spend Thanksgiving with my Husband and my In-Laws. Will they give me a hard time at the Port Of Entry? Are there documents that I should bring to show the officer at the POE?

Since you left without using the extension, the fact that you applied for one should not become an issue for reentry in the future. But the problem can be if you return too soon, CBP can deny entry. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Confused - B-1 to F-1 change

I came to the US on a B1 visa got it changed to F1-->finsihed 4 years of undergrad moved on to 2 years of Masters(both in engineering). I am yet to apply for OPT. Is this going to affect my chances due to the entry method; also what will happen if I get a company that want to sponspor me. Would you advise me to go back home to rectify my visa situation. Because the B1 visa I entered the country with is expired, I haven't travelled out of the country. What would you suggest I proceed about this.I really would love to go back home to visit but scared the consulate will deny me. Confused as ever.

You should be able to get your OPT and even an H-1 and a green card. But if ever you want to travel outside USA, make sure you discuss the facts of the case with a competent lawyer. You have to make sure you have a good chance of getting a

I Need A B2 Visa

I am a citizen of Nigeria and presently studying in China with a resident permit but my friend wants me to visit him in the States and he has sent all the necessary documents for me to apply for a visa. I would like to know if I need a travelling experience to apply for US visa when Iam in China.

I am not sure what you mean by "traveling experience," but B-2 visas depend primarily upon the consular officer being convinced that you do not intend to overstay in USA or seek to become a long term or permanent resident during your visit. Good luck!
