Traveling as visitor while GC in process

Recommended Posts



I am US citizen and about to start green card process for my 75 yrs old mother. My mother is in India.

Just learnt that due to a family event here, i would like to get my mom to US in August. 

Is it possible for me to start GC process now and still my mom can come here in August on visitor visa, even if GC process is not completed.


How should i proceed?


Many thanks in advance!

NO. She has immigrant intent. She needs to appear at the border and announce she will AOS while here and see what happens.


Since she will have a GC in process, she should not plan to travel until she has GC in hand. She has a lot to do since she will be PERMANENTLY moving to the US (not just visiting each year).
