If the visiting family member is a citizen of a foreign country, a visa is typically needed before travelling. A B-2 Visitor Visa may be appropriate for a family member that wants to visit friends and family or just wants to visit historic landmarks or attend a major sporting event in the U.S.
However, there are many purposes that are not permitted on visitor visas and the visitor visa carries several requirements that must be met before a visa can be issued. For example, a foreign national cannot use a visitor visa to study in the U.S. or seek employment or with the intent of establishing permanent residence in the U.S.
Since the denial of a visitor visa can disrupt your travel plans or cause you to miss important life events with family and friends, we encourage you to hire a skilled immigration attorney that will put you in a position for approval and help ensure your travel plans go smoothly. Our team can meet with you in a variety of locations and if you’re located far away from our local offices, you can always contact us by phone or email. The team at Sam Shihab & Associates is available to answer all your questions and discuss all the legal options regarding any immigration-related issues.
