How Can a Visa Applicant Prove Ties to Home Country?
One of the requirements of many nonimmigrant visas is that the applicant provides evidence of his/her ties to the home country. This evidence is used to evaluate whether the applicant has sufficient ties to bind him/her to their country so that they want to return after their U.S. Stay. What evidence you can provide will vary based on your age, relationships, assets and others.
Below are some suggestions of category of evidence that we have used successfully to support ties:
Property and/or business ownership or other valuable assets
Family relationships (spouse, children, parents, fiancé)
-Responsibilities (professional job, caring for family member, community engagement)
– Benefits (medical insurance, retirement benefits)
If you do not have strong ties to your home country you should strongly consider consulting with an experience immigration attorney before applying for your visa.
