Our first meeting - an easy question

Hello, my fiancee and I are new to the forum. We are looking at our first meeting together to meet the requirements of "you must meet within 2 years of appling for the K-1". She is a filipino living in Dubai, UAE and we feel like it is best if she comes here to the U.S. instead of me going there since she will be living here. It will give her an idea what her life will be like here so I have a dumb question but I think an easy one. To just simply travel here for a visit to the U.S., is all that is required is a passport and plane tickets or is it more complicated than that? Thank you for any advice you can give.

If she is from PI she'd have to apply for a visa in the Philippines, and from what I hear it's not easy getting a tourist visa in the Philippines (in person). Consider visiting her instead.

And from what I read, even if she does have UAE citizenship as well, she'd also need a visa.

A tourist visa can be applied for at any US consulate ... no need for this person to go back to the PI to apply
