My sister has a B-2 visa. Can she possibly lose this B-2 visa if she is petitioned by a relative as a sibling or a daughter?

Savannah, GA |

She is above 21 years of age, married and with children.

  1. Perhaps, if she has or is believed to have immigrant intent for the purposes of a visit, then the visa may be cancelled. These sorts of questions are best answered in detail with a competent and experienced immigration and visa attorney. Good luck.

    This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.


  2. She should still be able to use her B2 visa while her petition is pending. She should always answer any questions truthfully, and whenever she visits the US she should not stay for longer than the authorized period on her I-94. Petitions for siblings and married sons/daughters take quite some time, and she is lucky to already have a B2 to be able to come and visit her relatives in the meantime. She should use it wisely.

  3. She probably won't 'lose' the visa ... but they might not let her into the US.
