  • B1/B2 for mother and daughter

    Hello everyone. I'm planning to apply for i and my 15 year old daughter tourist visa to spend the Christmas holiday with my cousin and his family in december. We also woikd like to experience the snowy weather and visit a few popular tourist destinations.

    but they are people telling me that I can't apply with my daughter because since she's my only daughter it will raise a red flag. That VO will think that I'm running away to the US with my daughter.. what kind of VO would even think that? I want my child to travel with me and to meet my cousin as well and to experience what it's like to see snow and visit some popular tourist destination and have fun.. then come back in early January so she could go to school and i could get back to my work.

    Its other way actually, VO would like to verify that you have strong ties to your home country & would surely return back once your visit is over. Having dependent children in home country is one sort of way to assure the VO that you have a well to do family & you would surely return.

      Ok. But if I left her what if they ask why she's not travelling with me. Cause they ask many people that question.

        There is no hard and fast rule here. If you leave her, they'll ask why she's not traveling with you. If you go all together, then they wonder if you're all moving together and that you don't have anybody to come back to. These questions are psychological - they are trying to see how you will react and what kind of answer you have.

        Apply with whatever configuration you want (go together, alone, etc.) and answer questions truthfully and honestly. If they give you a visa, then good. If not, find a different country to visit. There are lots of awesome places in the world.

          I travel with her to other countries that dont require a visa.. but hoping to travel to the US now for vacation and to visit my cousin and his family. But I'm having doubt.

            Be ready to prove that even if she will be visiting with you, you still don't have any intention to live & stay in USA & you should be good.

              Ok thanks. One more thing, how can I state that I'm a self-employed jeweller. Under current employment?

                There should be a dropdown to select "Self Employed".
