K1 and Tourist Visa (Mexico)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Mexico

I met a female in Jalisco, Mexico Feb 2010 and decided that we would date to get to know each other. I was scheduled to fly out there 2 times (Plane tickets purchased March and April) but had a massive heart attack (In March) and other complications while in the hospital that prevented me from traveling to Jalisco, Mexico the 2 times. While I was in the hospital she applied for a tourist visa to be able to come and see me here in California. During her interview for the Tourist Visa she was denied the tourist visa and told it was because she had been at her employer (BanaMex In Jalisco, Mexico) too short of a time (1yr). I was discharged in May so she flew out to Tijuana, Mexico and I meet her there for the weekend then went to Rosarito for 2 days. She then returned to Jalisco. I then flew out to Jalisco, Mexico this month (6/18 from Tijuana, Mexico) and returned today. During all this time she would call me to the hospital and I would call her at her home. We also exchanged texts. While I was in Mexic we decided we would get married soon (No date set but I would say in about 6 months or so). My question is if I file for the K1 would they deny it (because she filed for a tourist visa in Marh) or make a big deal because she had just filed for a tourist visa and was denied and now a K1 filing?

Thank you to all for your help in Advance!!

hey u have a great love story there...i don t think that the refusual of the turist visa has anything to do vith fiance visa they may ask about it but she can just say the truth.the fiance visa is a special one, diferent of the turist one and is hard to be refused if u have hard evidence of the realtionship and u can suport her till she will be able to work.it will be ok. Good luck on your jorney and keep in touch.hurry up because the process takes too much and is a tune depression.God bless you guy.Lore

Tourist visa denial will not affect the K-1, not at all.

It might be a part of proof of your relationship that you guys wanted to meet.

We have the same situation of denial tourist visa twice.

Good Luck

Ozzie when my wife applied for a tourist visa and got denied i read her paperwork and it says they cant apply again till six months. i do not think it will affect the K-1 but if possible hold off this the six months of denial to make sure everything goes well.
