    What brings you here?

    When someone visits another person, the person who's being visited asks the person who visits: What brings you here?
    Can't it be "what has brought you here"?

    Re: What brings you here?

    The answer to What has brought you here? would be something like "the bus." What brings you here? is an idiom that asks why you came.
