Immigrant visa process
When an immigrant intends to submit his application for a US visa within one of the categories available to the applicant, the US government will process the visa. The processing time depends on which category of visa the migrant applies to. After processing the U.S. visa, the immigrant must go to an interview at the United States embassy abroad. The purpose of the interview depends on the US visa category in which the immigrant is presented. Below are examples showing the purposes of the interview followed by a sample of questions that the immigrant may ask the immigrant to determine approval for a US visa.
Tourist Visa: In this case, American tourist visas are granted to immigrants who intend to visit the United States temporarily as a visitor. When an immigrant applies for a non-immigrant visa, the United States government assumes that the non-immigrant intends to live in the United States permanently. The immigrant bears the burden of proving that he will only stay in the United States temporarily and leave before his US tourist visa expires. An immigrant may bear this burden by proving that he or she has sufficient social, economic, and family relationships with the country of his nationality in order to leave the United States and return to his country when his visa expires. A migrant may establish such ties, for example, by showing that he owns property in his homeland, or that he is the father or mother of a minor child who is not accompanying him on the trip, or that he is the son or only daughter of a single parent who cares for him. The immigrant must also demonstrate that he/she has enough funds to cover his stay in the United States. While each case varies according to its unique circumstances and there is no inline rule in approving approval of the US entry visa, the more evidence the immigrant provides to prove his intention to return, the greater the chances of the tourist agreeing to an entry visa.
Fiancee visa: In this case, fiancée visas are granted for sins called beneficiaries who wish to immigrate to the United States to marry their husbands. The purpose of the interview is to demonstrate that the immigrant is the fiancé of the legal permanent resident of the husband of the United States citizen, who is named as the petitioner, and that the two intend to marry within 90 days of the beneficiaries’ arrival in the United States of America.
All immigrants who want to come to the United States must provide a basis for their visa application to enter the United States. General categories are an immigrant and nonimmigrant visas. Immigrant visas for foreign citizens who intend to live in the United States permanently. Non-immigrant visas for foreign citizens who intend to reside in the United States temporarily.
