Is it better for a male UAE resident to have a male US sponsor when he applies for a visit visa to the US, or not?

Is it better for a male UAE resident to have a male US sponsor when he applies for a visit visa to the US, or not? My fiance is applying for a US tourist visa to come visa for 2 weeks. He has a great job and family back home but not very much in savings. We know I should not sponsor him, being female. However, he is nervous about applying without a sponsor. Would it help his chances to have a male sponsor?

  1. Best answer

    The gender of the sponsor is completely irrelevant. To get a B-1/B-2 visa the person must establish to the satisfaction of the consular officer that he will not remain in the US.

  3. For a male from UAE with attitude like that is better not to seek visa.


  4. I agree with my colleague. The gender of a sponsor is irrelevant. What is important is that he have strong ties to UAE.
