Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just filed I-129F for K1 and K1's child. I would like K1 to come visit my family and get to know them.

She would leave her daugther with family while she comes. She is a school teacher at a prep school currently,

What would I need to do to get her to be able to come? Are the acceptance rates good? How can I get her accepted?

Fiance lives in Uganda.

her chances of being able to visit are as close to zero as one can get. Unless she were a diplomat are the daughter of a well-known wealthy, Ugandan industrialist, she will not be issued a visitor's visa for lack of ties and due to the implication of "immigrant" intent as the beneficiary of the K1 visa.

Highly unlikely she has to wait on the process, a visit could be

made if she already held a visa to visit, the application can be

made if you want to just burn that money, but se has to wait on the line

Uganda be kiddin' me!

Ok.. puns aside: You are in the process of K1 for your fiancee but you guys want her to come visit... A lot of opinions say this can't be done... I say if the 160US is not an issue, I say just go for it and see what happens.

She needs to prove strong ties to her country such as employment, finances, property, etc.

I renewed a b1/b2 wen the i130 process was already started. They granted the renewal without a consular interview. I disclosed the i130 process in the tourist visa renewal application and still got it.

I have also been able to travel to US on several occasions during this process.

Try it if you are financially able... best of luck!! :goofy:

She applies for a visitor visa, nothing complicated.
