Can i Get a Tourist Visa and Special Purpose Visa in the Same Year?
(La Paz, Bolivia)
Hello! I am currently in Bolivia on a tourist visa and will be staying for the full 90 days. I'm returning to the United States afterward (I'm a U.S. Citizen). Would I be able to submit a special purpose visa while home and return to Bolivia on that visa after a month in the U.S.? I would then plan on applying for residency so I could stay another 6 months total.
I'm currently just touring, but found some volunteer work I'd love to do. I figure I could get letters and the necessary documents from the organization. Go to the U.S. Submit a special purpose visa application, and come back down to work with the volunteer organization for 6 months, applying for residency during my first month.
I would love to know if this is a possibility!
