Plane tickets to enter USA on K-1 visa

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We got our K-1 visa in Brussels last week.... yay!!!!

We've just bought a one-way plane ticket from Brussels to Baltimore, with her port of entry at JFK. The price was good. This seemed prfectly logical, but it occurred to me that I should check here. Is it necessary or advisable to get a round-trip ticket instead?

Humm... Well, the advantage of a round-trip is that it uses to be cheaper than a one-way ticket! But since you got a good price in this one you bought, there's any problem in using it! ;)

Have a good trip! (F)

In Brazil, when I was checking the tickets, round trip was cheaper, and the tourist agency said to me it would not be possible to send a one-way ticket with my visa :wacko: , but I didn't research to know about this...

best wishes!!!

I did the opposite on a J1 VISA a couple of years ago. I was out for 18 months and had a return ticket for 3 months later.

It is totally fine - if they mention it just tell them that the ticket you got was the cheapest price.

As most people have been saying a return ticket usually ends up cheaper as you can get last min charter flights!

Aside from the cost issue and whether or not a round trip would be cheaper, technically there is zero need for a return ticket since the visa is to bring the fiance of the petitioner to the US to get married and adjust status in the US.

Good luck! (F)
