Is it allowed to apply for different US visas ?

Hi,

I'm French, my fiancee is American, and we are applying for a K-1 visa.

My question is : "Is it allowed to apply for different US visas ? "

For instance apply to

  1. lottery
  2. k-1 fiance visa
  3. student visa

I already applied for the lottery this year, so I really hope it's not incompatible with the k-1 fiance visa that my fiancee just sent.

But I'm also wondering if I could apply for a student visa (in case the fiance visa takes too much time).

Thanks a lot for your help

( and happy new year)

Bertrand.

You can apply for anything you want. If you obtain something other than a K1, you'll need to assess the ramifications at that moment in time.

Your risk is in the beginning merely application fees (if any)... of which none will be refunded

Greencard lottery begins as a visa that assumes you will immigrate... so does the K-1.... The student visa may be incompatible.....


YMMV

Why would you apply for the student visa? to study? or just to be with your fiance sooner? If it's the latter, that is fraud.

If you do intend on coming on a student visa to study, and you marry, then you would have to prove your "intent" was to study, not marry. That can open a can of worms.

I would recommend you wait for the K-1 to go through, of course you may hit the lottery, but....

good luck!

My fiance applied for the diversity lottery in late 2007. We then applied for the k1 in the summer of 2008. We didn't get a green card from the lottery but it hasn't had any effect on the k1 process so far.
