Travel in US?

My Fiance has his medical exam and visa appointment in Juarez, Mexico next week. After he (crossing fingers) recieves his visa, will he be able to cross the border by vehicle to El Paso, then fly to Louisiana, or will he have to fly out of Juarez to Houston, then to Louisiana? I guess my real question is about flying in the US from the US with a K1 visa once over the border. Is it possible?

Welcome to VJ!~

Once your fiancee receives his visa, he can cross at any POE (Point Of Entry). This can be accomplished by crossing the boarder by car, flying into a US Airport or even crossing at the border on foot.

After your fiancee crosses into the USA, he can fly city to city with no problem.

Best of luck on your upcoming interview.

If he is traveling on a domestic flight within the USA hw will not have to pass through customs and immigration at his destination. So for example on a flight from Houston to New Orleans, he would only need to show his passport to verify his identity when entering the secured area in the airport. They don't check the status of your passport here.. they just check to make sure you are the person in the picture.

When he lands in New Orleans he can pick up his bags and leave the airport.

You only have to pass through customs and immigration when you arrive in the USA on an international flight.

I hope this helps
