Background: I'm from Asia working in the US for the past 2 years on an H1B visa in the IT industry. I'm here with my wife & a just-born son. My father recently passed away & consequently my mother is now staying alone in my home country.
Trigger: As far as I know, things are a bit difficult when it comes to applying a US visiting visa for a single parent; the most obvious reason being - single parent, of course. Besides, a single parent can stay only for a maximum of 6 months after which, the person will have to return to his/her home country. Subsequently, the person will have to stay in his/her home country for 6 months before again returning to the US. This process repeats.
Question: Apart from the US, are there any English speaking countries (like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, etc.) that would grant me a work permit visa alongside allowing my Mother to stay with us?
As you can see, it's not an easy thing to do every now & then. Hence the question.
