visitors visa questions

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I have heard all kinds of stories about getting married on a visitors visa in the US. Some say it is OK others say it is in violation of that visa and all other visas will be denied. Here is the situation My fiance and me (US CITIZEN) live most of the time in Panama. but visit the US. She does not want to live or work in the US only visit. My questions ( which some people say your Visitor visa is automatically revoked after marriage) is can we get married in the US return to live in Panama and she still visit the US every year on her visitor visa)? Thanks for any response

Sure.. If her intention is to visit and return to her home country, she can come up to visit all she wants. It helps that you are also resident outside of the US. A visitor visa is not revoked upon marriage. However, she is more susceptible to be denied entry or have her visa cancelled if the CBP suspects that she will overstay to be with you, her USC husband. Make sure that whenever she enters the US that she either

a) enters with you in the same line together.. and have proof of your legal status and ties to Panama

B) if she travells without you, to have proof of her ties to Panama including evidence of your ties to Panama.

It is perfectly legal to enter the US on a visitors visa or VWP to marry. Many of us on here have done that including myself.
