Have you had any problems in the past at the POE? Do you have strong ties to England to show proof; that you are not making this trip to to immigrate?

All my visits to the states have been almost a month. They dont really get annoyed with me. They've never actually questioned me about my plans (ie, staying in the USA or coming back)

nah ive never had a problem with the immigration people, and we havent filed for the K-1 yet so its not on redcord i was just wondering if itll make them suspicious or anything

Although You never know with the immigration people i would not worry to much if You have strong ties with Your contry(like job, ect.). I feel like they can ask about Your ability to afford frquent visits but as soon as You have left US on time before, they shouldn't have any problems.

I did what you are doing for a whole year with some trips over 60 days to be with my fiance at the time. I am lucky enough to have a job that I can work from pretty much anywhere in the world so i decided to go over and be with her. The first two trips were fine but i started getting grief on the third trip onwards. My mistake was not handing in my I-94 departure record everytime i left the states. Because i didnt turn them in it looked like i didnt leave and they penalized me for that. It came to a point that everytime i landed at lax i just expected a 3 hour wait and interrogation. I told them the truth and said i was travelling around with my girlfriend from time to time too. It eventually got to the last trip when they said they would deport me if i came back really soon again.

To sum up.

1. They want to see that you live more in your own country than the USA.

2. Bring paperwork of all your affiliation to your home country. House deeds, job letters etc.

3. Fly into different airports and then onto your final destination.

Hope this helps you somewhat

There is no guarantee that you will be allowed into the country, yet, like others said, if you bring plenty of proof with regards to having ties to your home country you should be fine. Just wait for the questions the immigration officer has for you and if he asks for further evidence showing that you won't remain in the US, present your documents.

I have planned a trip to the US in a little less than two weeks from now. It will be the first time for me to enter the US since we filed the K1 petition.

Good luck & all the very best for your journey!!!!


In every difficulty lies an island of opportunity.

I went to visit my fiance over christmas for a 3 week stay, I took a recent bank statement and a letter from my employer stating I was a permenant employee and when they expected me back. I just got asked the normal questions like have you visited the US before, what was the purpose of my stay.. that type of thing. I didn't get asked to show evidence that I wouldn't stay in the US.

Don't worry about it, you will be fine :)
