Delay Submission Until Tourist Visa approved?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I am getting ready to submit the petition for a fiancé visa, but wanted to get some advice about the timing if we are planning to also apply for a tourist visa. My fiancé is Vietnamese, but she is currently in the UK studying. She has an appointment with the London embassy in two weeks for an application for a tourist visa.

My question is… do you think we should wait on submitting our petition for a fiance visa until her appointment? We don’t want to delay submitting our fiance visa, but then again, we don’t want to spoil our chances of her coming to the US to meet my family. From the posts I have read, it seems to be a grey area, but in general we are allowed to visit each other. We were just worried that if they saw her fiance visa petition, it could reduce her chances of getting approval for a tourist visa; but we were not sure how quickly they actually input any data into the system (it seems like from the timeline, that it takes a couple weeks for them to even open the file).

She has a pretty solid case for her tourist visa now (in process of completing her masters in the UK, rental agreement, job offer in Vietnam when she completes her masters), so we are pretty hopeful that she will be able to get a tourist visa to meet my family soon!

Thanks in advance!

Actually she does not have a good case.. she has a fiancee in the US... The DS-156 application for a tourist visa requires that she disclose the fact that she has a fiancee in the US. If she does not check that box and she goes for a K1, she could be in a lot of trouble if she lied about it...

As the saying goes, you can't win if you don't try... but don't be surprised if her request for a tourist visa is denied...
