I am a white british citizen, currently living with a US service man, we have been together 18 months and when his tour of duty ends in October of next year we are going to move to the US.

He states that we dont need to get a fiance visa, we just need a tourist visa and we can marry whilst we are there, is this so? can anyone help me with this and point me in the right direction

Many thanks

Dawn

using a non-immigrant tourist visa with the intent to immigrate is a direct circumvention of immigration law. a big no, no.

At the border you will be asked the purpose of your trip and how long you will be staying... Will you answer "never, I am planning to live here"?


YMMV

What you describe is called visa fraud. The tourist visa is for being a tourist not for marrying. You both should read the guides, link on top of this page, and determine which visa type is best for you.

USCIS has a help line for active duty military. Your fiance can take advantage of this service to answer questions and get help.

Here is some info on the VJ Wiki for active duty military and their spouses: http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/..._Their_Families

Yes you can marry on a tourist visa and then return to your home country while a CR-1 is processed. If you want to come to the US, get married and STAY, you will need a fiancee visa.

You cannot enter on a tourist visa with the intent to get married, get married and "adjust status" and stay. Of course this is because you are a "white" British citizen.
