My parents applied for a B1/B2 nonimmigrant visitor visa @ Mumbai consulate and appeared for an interview (Gujarati) three times (2 times my parents and one time mother-in-law alone). All 3 times their applications have been denied.
The explanation for the denials has not been explained beyond “You are a potential immigrant to the United States”. I am their daughter and I am a citizen of the United States. We don’t want to file I130 as it takes time and my parents do not stay more than couple of months. My brother lives in South Africa.
I am pregnant and due to deliver my child in February of 2009. My parents have applied for this tourist visa because we feel it is urgent that they come to the United States before the birth. We also sent doctor's note confirming my wife's pregnancy but no help.
My parents have no desire to remain in the United States beyond a few months. They are well established in their home country, where they have family, business and property obligations.
