Is Visitor (B2) visa by self sponsorship advisable for longer (5-6) month stay ?


Recommended Posts

I would like my mother to visit and stay with us for some time (5 months).

I know there are two options for sponsorship (self sponsoring and sponsored by me).

I am thinking it is less of hassle choosing the self sponsoring option, as it avoids me to go through all the documentation that is needed from me. 

My mother can show a balance of around 3 lakhs in her bank account, additionally she can show property documents as proof of her Indian ties to return back.  

My question is this evidence good enough, or she should demonstrate more bank balance?

Another question, will self sponsorship  be disadvantageous for getting the visa, if the stay is for long duration (5-6 months) ?
