I was married to US citizen for 3 years and recieved my 1st greencard with no problem. Then my spouse died and I came to the 2nd interview along. I've been told that they need to prove that the marrige was lawful. After nine months immigration denied my application and I was convicted for immigrational fraud and asked to leave the country, which I did. It was in 2009. Now I have to travel to US and need a tourist visa. Would it be possible to get one?
"After nine months immigration denied my application and I was convicted for immigration fraud and asked to leave the country, which I did. It was in 2009. "
At that time, it was even more imperative to retain an immigration attorney to challenge the USCIS findings and possibly keep you in the U.S.
"Now I have to travel to US and need a tourist visa. "
Please understand that your need to travel to the U.S. is not a right, it is a privilege and the U.S. Government will deny you the entry visa based on the above.
"Would it be possible to get one?"
In my professional opinion you will not be issued a nonimmigrant B-2 visa.
The use of the term "convicted" gives the impression that you were criminally convicted of immigration fraud. In such a case you are permanently inadmissible to the United States and ineligible for a visa. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and provide you with specific advice on how to proceed.
