Does a Nanny visa will affect asking for a tourist visa in the near future?

Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

Hello, I just became a Permanent Resident thru my wife, my mother still on my birth country she has never apply for a visa, recently she is started working for her brother as a full time nanny and he want her to get a nanny visa so they can all come to the US, I was told that getting this visa will make it difficult for her to get a tourist visa later on. is this true? and will she be able to come visit me without my little cousin coming too, having a nanny visa?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . A domestic employee can be issued a B-1 visa to accompany her employer who is entering the U.S. for a temporary purpose. There are a number of requirement that must be satisfied before the visa can be issued, including proof of employment and experience. Often it is issued in conjunction with a B-2 tourist visa (B1/B2 combo visa). The fact that your mother is working for her brother may raise eyebrows as to the bona fides of the employment. If you mother is issues a B-2 visa she can come and visit you as a tourist.
