Hello all! My fiance was in the process of possibly being granted a working visa to come to the United States from the philippines. If she accepts the position and all goes well in her visa interview, she could be granted a working visa as early as this coming october. My concern is, would it be better to let her take the working visa to come to the states or to just forget about the possible working visa and file for a k1 visa instead? What would be the advantages and disadvantages of each choice? And what steps would we take granted we get married after she arrives here on a working visa? would she have to return to the philippines after her 6 month work contract still? We're pretty familiar with the K1 visa route, but of course we were wondering whether or not just going for the working visa would be better, since we could be together much much sooner rather than waiting for a k1 visa. However, if the complications with going that route are too great, then we might just stick with going through the much longer k1 process instead. Any feedback would be great! We just really want to be together as soon as possible with the fewest setbacks possible! Thanks guys! really appreciate ya'lls help!

Work visas are much faster and she will definitely be here sooner than a K-1. I am sure she comes on a work visa, maybe there is another option. I would just consult with an attorney. But, if she has a chance to come here on work visa I would go with the route first.

if she is coming on a work visa with the intent to marry after she gets here i believe thats called visa fraud.

Yeah i figured....just started reading some other posts and forums...probably not the best idea then! I guess we'll just have to stick it out with the k1 visa process! thanks anyway!
