Can anyone help with the experience they had and what to expect for the POE on the K-1 Visa?

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.

You didnt metion your POE so you'll likely get a multitude of answers, some good, some bad and some indifferent.

My fiancee POE was Detroit in January (I was with her). It was very uneventful. Waited in line for about 30 minutes, got to the CBP counter, handed over the sealed packet. The officer opened it and looked through it a few times (really looked like he was a newbie hehe). Asked if we knew we had to be married in 90 days - we answered yes. He attached the I-94 and stamped it, wrote on her passport (1 of 1) and circled the "1" on the K-1 visa. Said welcome to the US and we were off to gather luggage.

At Customes, the officer asked a few questions, when did you meet, when is the wedding, then just typical questions like we always get when reentering us. Then, welcome to the US.

For us it was a snap - I'm sure you'll hear some of the bad side too.

Good Luck and Best Wishes!

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: United Kingdom

my POE was ok, i had been denied entry exactly a year to the day i came back over

i landed in the same airport, i was taken down stairs by an officer after handing

over my K1 package, i was taken straight to the officer who had sent me back the

year before, he smiled and welcomed me back wished me all the best for the future

and explained he was only doing his job last year....in all it is all very smooth

and painless, good luck
