Not sponsoring parents US visitor visa after rejection , is that a problem?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

         I work in the US ( and single if that matters) and my parents are going in for a US visitor visa interview on 27th Jan 2015 at Mumbai Consulate. Their visa was rejected in 2012 when I had offered sponsorship for the trip with all required documents. Reason for rejection was possible immigrant intent.

 

Family situation at the time of reject and still the same

 

Father retired

Mother working in bank

Elder sister who is married and settled in India. 

 

This time we decided to not declare my sponsorship and let them self sponsor. I wanted to see if this might be a problem, and incase they are asked why I am not sponsoring this time, what should they answer ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the replies jairichi and rahul412

 

I just wanted to update the thread incase it may help anybody else. My parents' visas were approved this time :)

 

All they were asked this time is

 

- Who do you know in US / who lives in US (told about me)

 

- When did he last visit India (2 years in my case)

 

- My father's occupation before retirement

 

- About other children and what they do.

Thanks for the update Cipher. Congratzz!!

I am in the same boat.

I have sponsored visitor visa for my in laws back in 2012 and got rejected as they took some time to give the VO the right document. :-(

So, this time, did you sponsor them or they went through the self sponsored route.. If it is self sponsorship, did they take the help of any Mediators or Brokers back in India for documentation / paper work.

 

Please let me know.
