I am currently living in Nicaragua with my fiance.

People have complications with this when it comes to being able to show that you earn enough money to bring your fiance to the states. If you go to live with her would you be able to continue working? Or you will need someone to sponsor you if you can prove that you meet the financial reqs.

As far as getting a visa, this varies country to country. From Nicaragua, it would be impossible for him to get a tourist visa to come visit. But it is different for every country.

I did this. But it was quite easy because I could enter under the VWP and because of my own company.

Although I would love to stay with my fiance until the interview that simply isn't feasible. I would have to give-up my job, and THAT job is our financial future and how I will be able to support us once he is here (I'm figuring that he probably won't work for at least the four to six months that he is here).

The most I get to see him is for a week, every three months.

But, there are many others who do find a way to stay with their loved ones until the visa is issued, and they seem to find a way to make it work for them.

Just depends on your circumstances.


6/29 - NEW I-129 mailed to CSC

7/21 - NOA1 issued

9/21 - finally ... my first touch!!

9/21 - NOA2 issued

Yes it is a nice dream...but I can't see me affording two airline tickets.. The holiday one $1400+(round trip) and the ..She's finally coming to me ticket app. $1000+(one way) in the matter of 3 months....and pay for the Wedding within 60 days or so of her getting here...

So while I would love to have her here for the holidays...I can't see it happening unless God takes a hand in the process... :) I am praying daily....

Fortunately for Johann and I, we met while working on cruise ships, so we are still together at work. However, if it were not for that, I don't think we would be able to be together. It would be so hard financially. God bless those that are, and are able to somehow still bring in the income and save for a future. We were apart from Feb. to Aug., only seeing each other for one week in June, and that was HARD! But you know, now that we are able to be together (and hopefully never again apart for that long, knock on wood), we both agree that it is so worth the wait and patience. In all of our cases, the statement "Best things come to those who wait," sincerely holds true. Nothing can beat being with the one you love! However it works out, it will all make sense later. It may not make sense to any of us right now, but it will one day and hopefully soon! God bless.
