Hi all,

I tried to search the forum but it seems to be down. My only question is this. My fiancee lives in Mexico City, here children are 17 and 18 yrs old and are not coming to the US. She wants to know if she is allowed to leave the country to visit them, just a short visit and then come back to the US. She heard from somone that you could not travel for a certain amount of time.

Could someone more knowledgeable than me clear this up?

Thank you in advance

Greg

Thats correct. She is not allowed to leave US territory until the AOS is done.

Unless she gets AP (advanced parole).. Other members can elaborate a little better.


My wife is JenK on the forum

The K1 is a single entry visa. If she leave the U.S. without either permanent residence or advance parole (requires filing of I-131 along with AOS) then she won't be able to reenter the U.S. without a new visa.

Thats correct. She is not allowed to leave US territory until the AOS is done.

She can certainly leave anytime she wants to. The difficulty is in returning to the U.S.
