      an immigrant visa....why? because they will have a hard time (impossible) convincing the embassy that they will leave the US after a short visit...

              First of all,if you want your parents to visit you,you do not need,like somoene mentioned (which makes me still laugh) a Immigrany Visa lol.

              All they need as you knew anyway,since you said it.A tourist Visa...
              But my friend,you have no right and no way apply for it.The tourist who wants to visit you,even family members have to apply for the Visa personally and have to go to the US Consulate for a interview.

              If your parents are from the EU countries,they do not need a tourist visa to apply for,and can come here for no longer than 3 months.
              If they are planning to come here for more than 3 months,and are also from a EU country,they also MUST apply for a 6 month tourist Visa.
              And anyone else from anywhere else,anwyays need to apply for a Visa.

              For an example.My one friends g-f is german,and she wants to come and visit him for 5 months,as a german citizen (any eu country) does not need a tourist visa,to visit.But since she wants to be here for 5 months,she also had to apply for a tourist visa that would allow her to stay for 6 months and she had to go to the consluate for an interview.Which was givin to her,and remember she only as a girlfriend had to show lots of proof,that she will return back to germany after 5-6 months...bak records,apt address,bills,school letter etc etc...
              Now as immidiate family member,they also must show lots of proof they will return back home after visiting you for 6 months.

              But bottom line,they need a tourist Visa as well,which will allow them to stay for 6 months,regardless what country they are from.

                  Dear Ven,

                  Family members usually obtain visitor's visa to come visit family in the US. During the interview at the US mission (consulate or embassy)the officer determines the applicant purpose and issue a visa accordingly. In order to issue a B1B2 (visitor) visa, the officer must verify that the applicant can overcome the "intending immigrant" rule aka 214B. This is done by balancing ties to home country vs ties to the US. Sometimes sponsoring US family member will send the applicant in India an Affidavit of Support I-134 Form which states what kind of support they are offering to the applicant while in the US.
                  Good luck !
