I am a U.S. citizen and am sponsoring my mother for a green card. Her case is being processed through the U.S. Embassy in Mumbai. Is she allowed to visit on her B-2 visa while the case is pending?


Having a pending green card case does not prevent a person from requesting admission in B-2 status. However, there generally is an increased risk of being denied admission based on immigrant intent. (19.Jan.2023)
