Hello,

I have a question and would appreciate you can answer.
My Parents are in India. I will be filing their I-130 in few days. My parents have a B visa and plan to visit US in summer next year(2011). My question is that can my parents travel to US on B visa, while their 130 is in process or approved.

Thanks for the advice

nalwar,

First of all, when you asked someone a question, based on a responce, always comment. Atleast receipt note. You didn't do in last case.

Well, I recommend you call them(parents) on B visa first. While they are in USA, then only you file their I-130. Then they don't have to back, even if B visa is expired. But during I-130 process, they(US Embassy) wont let them(parents) in USA. Whether I-130 is approved or not. Confirm with experts. I am not 100% sure about my answer.

In past, if someone's family sponsered file is going on. (Parent's case is different. 4.5 months. But brother-sistwer 10 years). So, in that case, they(USCIS) wont let applicant in USA on B visa or so. They are scared of that, person(applicant) will visit USA and stay there forever, till their family sponsered file become current.
