will the frequency of visiting US while K1 pending making a difference?

Filed: Timeline

I am going to visit my fiance this weekend. I have gathered all the docs I can. However, I have found another job and may take it in about two weeks time (they are doing background screen and will finish in two weeks). If so, I want to shorten my notice period to current employer and go to US for another three weeks. It could happy quite soon, three weeks after my initial visit this weekend.

However, I have heard that if I visit US too often, it increased my risk of being denied. Could anyone who have visited US often tell me some experience?

Thanks!

Visiting will not cause a K-1 denial, but visiting too much may cause them to deny you a visit and not let you enter the country.

Will not affect the visa process at all. As far as affecting your ability to visit...I doubt it. The best proof you can have of not intendign to immirate illegally is a history of frequent visits and RETURNS legally.
