Visiting fiance during process....

Hey all

I've got a question about visiting my fiance during the process of a K1. We're more than a month since we received the NOA1 and am in the waiting period for NOA2. The last time I came to the US was under the waiver program in January -March, during which time the INS officer grilled me (I was unprepared for it and so was a bit of a mess) and said that he'd let me in this time but I'd have to wait about 6 months before trying again (his words were "INS and love don't go together" actually).

My fiance came and visited me for a week last month and I'd like to come visit for the month of August. (It's now been about 6 months since my last visit)

My question is: should I tell the interviewing officer that we're in this process and give him the case number? If they get weird with me again. Or should I just attempt to say I'm visiting but not mention it? Will visiting before the NOA2 change my status at all and make it any worse for us? It seems he has no problems visiting our side.

Not a problem.

Just have strong ties back home and be honest.

(Umit told the CBP she was in process of the K-1 and they had no issues with it)

She had return ticket info (and our complete k-1 package/noa1) - and a letter from her boss that this was a vacation. they just wanted to see the ticket info.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Can I just ask if you know anything about the length of time I can stay for? I mean I was planning on staying the whole 90 days...... would that be a problem do you think?

You will find lots of information here.

Just make sure you have ties to Wales with you especially since you are maxxing out the Visa Waiver.

Goodluck :)

Theoretically yes, but you are going to need a return ticket, the cbp will want to see that. Having tickets booked for exactly 90 days will likely red flag you. I would suggest planning to go for a few weeks and booking your ticket with a low penalty airline so you can rebook should you decide to stay longer.

In all likelyhood all you will be asked for is your tickets, but definatly bring your NOA1 and a copy of the package you sent to the uscis.

Be carefull to buy a ticket thinking that you will rebook it later.

I found once in this forum a girl that was granted with the visa waiver program only 8 days (total stay 7 days + 1 day for possible delays).

So don't count on it too much you may find yourself with a visa of few days.

I think that the POE won't be happy to see you staying 90 days after what happend but more important how can you show strong ties to your home country staying away for almost 3 months (if you are a student bring all evidence, translated! If you are self-employed bring even more evidence!)

I wish you good luck.
