first time in the US was when I was 3 years old with my parents, we traveled twice and then on the 3rd time we stayed (never moved due to economic hardship, dad just liked the city was tired of a stressful business job in Mexico City and his siblings lived in Chicago). I grew up in Chicago but before turning 18 years and 180 days I left Chicago and went back to Mexico City in order to go to university since I couldnt get financial aid in the US. I've been studying for 2 years (halfway done) I speak 4 languages and I have proficiency certificates that prove this. I currently teach english & portuguese to executives besides studying (ive been to europe too) Could I apply for a US visa to visit Chicago? my dad is the only one in chicago, he is in process of getting residence through my unclMy sister and mother also lived in Chicago but my sister has been in Mexico for 5 years now. She also had a baby so she is tied to the country and mom just moved to Mexico (she obviously has the 10 year penalty) But I think this could play out well since most of my family voluntarily moved back so that should also show some ties besides school, travel abroad and work.
