So, I really have a hard time dealing with the American embassy in Europe. I am an international student, and my mom is a single parent. She applied for the tourist visa a year ago, and circumctenses were not great! her salary was not high enough, and she did not have money on the bank statement. But, this time, she went with higher salary (her company was bought by the other guy), and she had a proof that she just bought an apartment two weeks ago (plus she had her old apartment that she also had last time). She also had 4000$ on her account. I sent her the letter from my college, and she said that it is my birthday on September and that she wanted to be with me and so on. They denied the visa again! So, I have some concerns. Is it possible that since my mom is REALLY nice looking, although she is 47 year old, and single that they assume she would marry somebody in the US? The other thing that I am worried about is that I came to the US as a tourist and then changed my status to an international. Do they keep rejecting her because of my change of status?I do not think they even looked my name up in the computer, but who knows. ( If so, then she will never be approved visa, right???). I mean, I have a lot of friends who came on J1 and changed their statuses and their parents have had no issue coming to visit them, but again I came as a tourist. I do not understand. This is pure discrimination, and the irony is that she really wanted to come for one month. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
