Recommended Posts

HI All,

I am working in USA last 5 years 2 month and came to india for Visa Stamp -H1B Visa and H4 visa for my wife. We schedule appointment next week 13march2013.

I have applied B2 visa for my Parents same day and time. Plan to go all together and get stamp.

Is it any issue for all of us or my parents B2 visa. if they ask where is your son then they can say in india came for visa stamp?

please guide require documents for B2 visa and Questions amd H1/H4 Visa stamp documents.

THanks

Mohan

You will not be interviewed together. Attending at the same time should neither help nor hurt since both stampings should be based on the merits.

If you do not already have your employer provided documents for your stamping, you have a problem.

In interviewing for the B-2 visa, the consulate will look for reasons the applicant may want to stay in the US, as well as reasons that the applicant is likely to return home, and of course proof that the applicant is able to support himself while in the US. The B-2 applicant should be sure to answer all questions honestly, but is not required to provide information not asked for. Having a child who is entering the US in H-1B status could work for or against the B-2 applicant, depending on the specifics of the situation. If the parent appears to be financially dependent on the child, the visa is unlikely to be issued.

Murthy Law Firm does have an affiliate attorney in India who assists with visa applications.

Hi Mohan,

Question for you. Was there any issue in the B2 visa for your parents, since you were not in US?

While filling I-134, we need to provide I-94 number right? What did you provide, as you might not have had that since you were in India?

 

As far as Bank verification letters - did you take it from US before leaving to India?

 

Thanks!

I am not sure if my previous post is showing yet. So I am repeating my query.

 

Mohan - What did you fill up in the I94 field on the I-134 form? Since you were in India for your own stamping, you would not have this information right?

Also, did you give your US address in the form, since you were returning back from your vacation?

My question is basically this: If someone is traveling to US in the near future on a H1B, and their visa is stamped already, can he/she be a sponsor to his/her parents for their B2 visa?

There is no sponsorship for a visitor visa. Your visa status has nothing to do with visitor visa for your parents.

Thanks for all the responses. So there is not sponsor for visitor visa, but if parents are not paying for their trip, and I am paying for their trip and I am bearing all the expenses for them when they are in US

1. they need to give my information on DS-160 and

2. I need to provide I-134, bank account statement showing I have enough funds to take care of their expenses when they are in US

 

Is the above information accurate? If so,

1. if I am in India and am traveling back to US soon, how do I fill the I-134? Since I do not have an I-94, should I be leaving that field blank?

2. Also, even though I am in India, can I give my address in US, since I will be traveling back from vacation?

3. In the invite letter to my parents and in the letter to the consulate, should I be indicating that I am currently in India and I will be traveling to US soon, and provide my US address?

That means they are dependent on you.

If a visitor doesn't have enough money for the vacation, then what's the gurantee that they will leave US after the vacation?

You better stay out of this process and let them do it by themselves, its better to attend the interview when they have enough money for the trip.
