Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I am James, and I will be assisting you. As we work through your questions, think about this as a conversation. I will ask you questions until I have the information I need, and then I will provide you with an answer. While it might take some time to get through this, we will get through it together.ANSWER: The issue really comes down to her ties to Vietnam. The consular officers are instructed to presume a person has immigrant intent with the United States, unless proven otherwise. So each applicant for a visitor visa is burdened with the task of proving that their intentions are to leave the US prior to their expiration of stay. When a person is married to a US citizen, that is a very strong tie to the US - probably the strongest. Moreover, technically a US visitor married to a US citizen can apply for adjustment of status to permanent resident, and the consular officials are keenly aware that many people come as visitors and do so, to get around the longer wait times associated with doing the marriage based immigration process te right way, from abroadSo while it is possible for her to get a visitor visa, it might be quite hard. Your collective goal is to show she has very strong ties to Vietnam, including that you live and work there. This helps to lessen the weight of risk that she'll use the visitor visa to get to the US and apply for a green card
(since you don't actually live there).Incidentally, ties to her home country include dependent family members, a job, enrolled in school, ties to community, property, etc. There is no list of required things to show, so anything will be considered as part of a whole set of evidence.I hope I have answered your questions.
