K1 Visa stopover question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It is. The K1 visa is good for 6 months ( from the date it was issued ). Your fiancee has 6 months to enter the USA so as long as she is already in the USA within that period she should be fine.

Removal of Conditions :

August 16, 2010 - Petition received by USCIS Vermont Center

August 20, 2010 - NOA1 received

October 4, 2010 - Biometrics

January 3, 2011 - Permanent 10 yr. Green Card Received.

Hi guys,

Question about making a stopover before coming to US. My fiance wants to stopover at Japan for a couple of days before continuing her flight to the US. Is this possible?

Yes. She won't be activating the visa in Japan, so it's all good.

A Japan visa should be applied for if she will be going out of the airport, right? My sister applied for Japan visa when they went there for a tour.

Maybe it's like a USC traveling to the Phil, if you are there for less than 21 days, no visa is required. I have no idea and I am just speculated. They will have to check into that...

I don't know about Japan, but I didn't have to apply for a Visa when heading into Hong Kong. Should probably look and see if it's even necessary to apply for one into Japan.
