Can my parent (mom) apply tourist visa while I-130 is in Process?


Recommended Posts



I would really appreciate if you can help me on this situation.


I applied the petition I-130 for my mom(widow) in India to immigrate to U.S. The petition is not approved yet. Just filed it a month ago (April 2016). I got the receipt(I-797). But my mom is not interested to immigrate. She just want to visit us once in a while and go back to India.

She would like to visit us this summer in July 2016. 

My question is:

Can she get the tourist visa if she apply now while I-130 is in process?

Or  shall I need to cancel the I-130 in order for her to get the Tourist Visa?


Please help me out here.


thanks in advance
