In-laws B2 visa
Hi All,

I am planning to apply for visitor visa(B1/B2) for my in-laws(my wife’s parents and my brother-in-law who is a college student in India.
I have the following questions.
1) My father in-law is aged 60+, and mother-in-law aged 50+. They run a small-scale boutique business back in India, and their make an average income of 15K per month. Is it safe to mention this business while applying for their visitor visa application since I see a number of visa rejections questioning the intent of their visit.
2) Is it safe to apply for B2 Visa for my brother-in-law?, since I see a lot of visa rejections questioning the intent. Can he furnish a bonafide letter from his institution which will demonstrate his intent to return to study. The reason why I ask this, is because he might apply for a student(F1-visa) in future and in case he is rejected might impact his ability to come to USA.

Immigration Officer raised concern about long stays using VISITOR Visa
My mom visits me every year and stays on Visitor Visa for less than 6 months.

This time when she arrived in Houston, TX - Immigration officer asked about the reason for Visit and then Sent her to another room.
In that room , the Immigration officer asked my Mom

Why do you stay in the USA for so many months. You should leave in 2-3 weeks.
My Mom requested them and told that she is here to stay with her Son's family and spend time with the grand parents.

He wanted her to leave asap. After profuse pleading he said, you should leave in 1 month.

Now the Date on the stamp is 6 months from the date of Exit.
The Online I94 also matches with the date on the Passport.

However on top of the stamp in Passport, Immigration officer wrote "Advised on Lengthy Stays"

What am I supposed to do , Send back my Mom Sooner or
This is not a matter of concern at all.

Please advise.

Frequent visit on B1/B2 visa
Hi Everyone,

My parents were in US from June 15 2020 to Jan 5th 2021(6 months 20 days) to care of my new born baby. we have applied for their extension in November but we got only receipt number before their departure.

Now we are planning my sisters wedding in May in US so my parents have to travel back again in May for1 month only, so we are worried as they are traveling after only 4 months of stay in India

Below are my concerns, any info is much appreciated.

-Whether they will be allowed at POE or not for one month of stay
- if they deny their entry will their current visa become void
- if they send them back to india when they can travel back again

They have all proofs of business in india to travel back and they will returning back to india immediately after wedding

Thanks in adavance

Re-entry for visitor to USA?
Hi Everyone,

Here is my pathetic situation.

My in-laws was visited USA last year Oct 2019 and stayed for 3 months and then they returned back to USA within 20 days due to miscarriage for my wife. They stayed here for 7 months because of COVID. However we applied one month extension and they went back to India in Sep 2021. Recently we got biometric for B2 visa extension and we didn't address to that since they left already. But now my wife had a emergency surgery and need to take bed rest. We are planning to bring back my in-laws to USA.

My concerns are
1. CBP officer will allow them in port of entry? if so, how long he/she will give I-94?
2. Do I need to get any medical letter from my doctor and let CBP officer know this medical reason?
3. How in-laws should answer in port of entry?

Please advise
