    YesHope,

    You can apply for a tourist visa just as you would for a regular person . Mention in your letter of invitation that she is your sister and you will take care of her financially and also provide her with boarding and lodging during the entire time she is with you. My sister has visited me 5 times and has stayed with me for 6 months during each visit.

    Just have him lie during his tourist visa interview.....see what happens....'tourists' don't ask for visas so they can (a) scam medical benefits from the US taxpayers nor (b) use the visa to live in the US....which category is your brother?

    why should your brother be given special privileges not available to others?

    Macbel - How did you manage to get your brother here in US with you ? Is your brother in India as well ? Can you also provide more details on your comment " I had applied for both of them, together though separately, I130 and adjustment of status."

    I am in the same boat as you. I have a mentally retarded sister who is dependent on my parents and they are all Indian citizens. I am a us citizen.
    Can I sponsor my parents green card and when they get us citizenship eventually, would they be able to sponsor my sister's Green card. During this Period, they will all travel back and forth between India and us every 6 months to retain my sister's travel visa and also ensure that my parents stay here 6 months of the year.

    federale86, I just went to USCIS and spoke with an immigration officer, re my mentally retarded 31 year old brother who is now here with me and my mother under tourist visa. I had applied for both of them, together though separately, I130 and adjustment of status. My mom's petition was accepted and she just completed her biometrics yesterday. Meanwhile, my bro's I130 with adjustment of status were denied.

    The immigration officer referred me to ICE.

    when you say, " after he arrives as a tourist, you can file for him and he can wait here"--- should I apply for my brother's I130 again and he can stay here indefinitely till the papers are completed?
    Won't he be overstaying and be an illegal? He has been allowed to stay 6 months, with a 10-year multiple entry tourist visa...

    thank you!

    Hi Kishore,

    It looks like there is still no relief re immigration petition for mentally handicapped people as of last reading. Also, just today Obama has put forward public awareness on mental illness which is a positive development. We are hoping that this will open up to loosening immigration restrictions on mentally handicapped dependents coming to US.

    I am in the same predicament as I am a US citizen who wants to petition my mentally disabled (Asperger's Syndrome) son who is 30 years old. Does anyone know what my options are?

    Your only option is for your brother to enter as a tourist or illegally.

    After he arrives as a tourist you can file for him and he can wait here.

    Otherwise enter illegally, then claim in deportation proceedings that he cannot live alone overseas because he is retarded and deportation will result in his death or in serious harm and hope the judge rules in his favor. Even if the judge doesn't you can appeal and go to the press. Or you can get a private bill from your Senator or Representative. Or hope for amnesty. ICE rarely deports retarded people anyway.

    Hi I am in the same situation. I cannot bring my mother and my brother because he is dissabled.

    Please tell me did you find the way to bring him?

    Thank you so much.

    "your convenience does not drive immigration policy"

    Thats pretty much nailed it.

    Your brother can come to the US with the proper procedures that OldMan, Mohan, Aliba, etc specified, but it does take time.
