Apply B1/B2 tourist Visa for parents while H1B extension in RFE

Hi Anil,

If I sponsor Visitor Visa for my Parents living in India , Do I need to have my I-797 Approval before my parents Visa Interview ? my H1b Case currently in RFE and waiting for my employer to respond.


Hi @Bob

You can apply your parent’s visitor Visa even though your H1B is pending approval with RFE.

I don’t see any issue.

Can I still send the Invitation letter and can I be the sponsor for my parents Visitor Visa ?

Why do you think you cannot be the sponsor?

I did answer clearly that you can. Why are you confused now?
