U.S. Visa: Proving Strong Ties to Your Home Country

Applying for a nonimmigrant visa requires you to prove that you don’t have immigrant intent. This involves providing the necessary documentation that will show strong ties to your home country. Here we discuss the type of evidence you can submit together with your visa application.

Who needs to prove strong ties to their country of origin?

First, let's explain what the ‘strong ties’ refers to. This includes different parts of your life that connect you with your home country: your job, family and friends, community, or your possessions. When applying for a nonimmigrant visa, that means that you don’t want to stay permanently in the United States. You may want to work temporarily in the U.S., visit as a tourist, or undergo medical treatment. Either way, after a limited period, you will return home.

Each case is different, and the consular officer will take that into account when examining your documents and during your interview. If you intend to apply for a U.S. nonimmigrant visa, you will need to prove that you plan to return to your home country. Failure to do so will significantly damage your chances of successfully obtaining a visa.

What evidence do I include?

In case you own a business or have a job you must keep, that will help with your application. Some of the evidence you can provide are a letter from your employer, your bank account, and paycheck stubs. If you own a business, make sure to submit the statements showing revenue or investment papers.

If you own a house or property, that is also a valid reason that will be taken into account. You can submit the purchase agreement, mortgage payment or property tax receipts, and investment papers. On top of all this, don’t forget to include photographs you have taken with your relatives and friends.
