Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just to let everyone know who replied to my post " Can i travel to USA while applying for K1- Visa".

Well i just spent 6 great days with my fiancee in Chicago. Had no problems getting through immigration at O'Hare Airport, even though i had a letter from my employer and morgage statements etc, the POE guard just asked the normal questions and waived me through and said " Have a great stay" .... HAPPY DAYS !!!

Thanks To All Who Answered

That's pretty normal. The vast majority of the time, the customs guy at the airport will just wave you through if you are forthright, honest, and look like you match your story. The "ties" you bring as evidence are really only for that 1-in-10,000 long shot where they decide to get picky. Most people are fine the vast majority of the time. That said, it's much better to be unnecessarily prepared than unprepared! The visible signs of confidence you get from feeling prepared almost certainly contribute to you getting through without apparently needing the evidence. It still helped you, indirectly, by making you feel more prepared and confident.


DON'T PANIC
