Re: My mother, Sita Gupta, entering the US on a Tourist Visa on December 2, 2021.

Dear Sir / Madam, 

I, Rahul Gupta, residing at the above address, am writing on behalf of my mother Sita Gupta, since she cannot understand/speak English. She would like to enter the United States on a B2 visitor visa on December 2, 2021 to tour the country and to spend time with us.

She would like to visit various places, such as New York (Statue Of Liberty, Empire State Building, etc.), Atlantic City, NJ, Washington D.C., Disney World in Florida, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, etc. To visit these places, she is dependent upon me due to the language constraint (she cannot speak or understand any English), and also she cannot drive a car.

Since I work on a full-time basis as a Software Engineer, I have to take a vacation/use weekends/long weekends to accompany her to visit these places. It is not possible for me to take a long vacation for this purpose. Also, due to her age, she cannot visit all these places in a short period of time in a package tour, as it would be too hectic for her.

She has a confirmed return ticket during the first week of June 2022, and she has already bought health insurance for 6 months.

I am attaching here a tentative itinerary for her stay in the USA. Therefore, I kindly request you to grant her a longer stay in the USA, such as 6 months.
