A: If your wife's parents in India are applying for a visitor visa to the United States, providing your information as part of their application can be a common practice. This is especially true if you are hosting them or if they will be staying with you in Louisiana. In the visa application process, demonstrating strong ties to their home country and the purpose of their visit to the U.S. is crucial.

Your information can help establish the context of their visit, such as their relationship to you and the nature of their stay. It's important to ensure that all the information provided in their visa application is accurate and truthful. Misrepresentation can lead to visa denials and future complications.

However, also be aware of the privacy implications of sharing personal information. Only provide what is necessary for the visa application process. If you have any concerns about the information being requested or the visa process in general, it may be helpful to consult with an immigration attorney for guidance. They can help ensure that everything is in order for a smooth application process. Remember, the goal is to provide enough information to support their application while protecting your personal details.
